Practice Overview

Drummond Woodsum’s business and corporate attorneys serve a wide range of clients, from start-ups and early-stage companies to multinational corporations.  We assist clients in achieving their immediate objectives while also protecting our clients’ long-term interests and we do so efficiently, which is why Drummond Woodsum is a leader in business and corporate law.  We serve the needs of our clients in their day-to-day operations as well as their most significant undertakings and transactions, and everything in between.  The firm’s business lawyers are widely respected for their experience, expertise, and pragmatic approach to client issues.  Every lawyer in the group is taught that it is our job to understand your business and provide solutions, not just identify problems.  The firm’s Business and Merger and Acquisition practices and many of its business lawyers have been recognized for many years at the highest levels by the prominent legal rating companies Best Lawyers in America and Chambers and Partners.

For many of our clients, we effectively serve as outside general counsel responding to the frequent inquiries that arise day-to-day, including those related to contract drafting, review, negotiations, financings, owner relations, employment issues, the protection of intellectual property, and commercial disputes.  Our business lawyers often develop long-lasting relationships with their clients and with that a deep understanding of your business and objectives.  We strive to be viewed as an integral member of your team.  We also strive to be responsive and timely in our responses and provide expert, practical, efficient, value-driven advice to our clients.
