Effective legal advocacy in corporate transactional matters demands the counsel of corporate attorneys who have a wide range of experiences with organizations and are well-equipped to perform a spectrum of duties that include drafting and negotiating sale of goods and service contracts to structuring mergers and acquisitions.
At Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, our corporate attorneys have counseled an array of clients in both corporate transactional matters and in commercial disputes giving rise to litigation. As a result, our attorneys are capable of anticipating various liability risks before they arise, sidestepping the risk of litigation through intelligent negotiating, counseling, and drafting. The provision of comprehensive, end-to-end corporate transactional services requires proper integration with clients, however. Our Houston-area attorneys are closely integrated with strategic partners so as to enable them to provide comprehensive advisory services.

Corporate lawyers are — to a degree — intimately involved in drafting, negotiation, and execution of commercial agreements. The difference between a skilled corporate lawyer and a poor one can be substantial, however, and mistakes during the transactional process can expose the client to potential litigation risks. A properly drafted contract ensures that its terms and provisions are unambiguous, and that strategic partners are well apprised of their rights and responsibilities under the contract, as well as the consequences of entering into the contract at-issue.
Anticipating the potential for litigation is critical to effective corporate counsel, but the avoidance of liability must be properly contextualized. In partnering closely with our clients, our corporate attorneys understand each client’s various business objectives and is equipped to provide effective counsel as to liability risks that keep such objectives in consideration. Our attorneys understand that for some clients, a minor risk of liability may be an acceptable cost of doing business in a competitive industry. As such, we provide legal advocacy that is tailored to the risk appetite of each of our clients.
