Corporate

Businesses worldwide turn to us for forward-thinking commercial advice on the full spectrum of their corporate matters. We bring a strong focus on the Technology and Energy & Infrastructure sectors – and on helping our clients execute U.S.-based and cross-border transactions efficiently and effectively.

Our corporate teams counsel six of the Fortune 10 TMT companies, more than 1,600 high-growth companies and leading players in the Energy sector. We act for the largest public and private enterprises across the United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa. And we represent leading funds, underwriters and financial advisors, including 17 of the 20 largest global banks.

We are equipped to represent companies at all stages in the corporate life cycle and all levels of global growth. Chambers Global recognizes our leadership in M&A, private equity and venture capital in 10 markets worldwide: Africa, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Latin America, Russia, the U.K. and the United States. And we were named 2016 Corporate Department of the Year: Emerging Companies by The Recorder. As Chambers notes, we are "highly adept at handling financings in the venture capital space as well as multimillion-dollar M&A deals."

We bring a 360-degree approach to our company advice, drawing on our practitioners in each of the areas a business requires: securities regulation, compensation and benefits, tax, IP, cybersecurity and data protection, anti-bribery and foreign corrupt practices compliance, employment, antitrust, and international trade and regulatory compliance.

We are focused on efficient execution and pragmatic advice – not only in the context of major transactions, but also in supporting a company’s day-to-day operations. Through Orrick Analytics, we use proprietary technology and probability modeling to conduct due diligence. Our Global Employment and Equity Compensation service helps clients manage HR compliance on a global scale. And multinational public companies can manage their corporate secretary function through our subsidiary Verbatim.

We are company advisors, and we know the true measure of success often comes long after closing. When our clients keep calling us for advice after the transaction is completed, we know we are adding value.
