Commercial & Corporate

Pavia & Harcourt represents public and private corporations, partnerships and individual clients in a wide range of matters. We are particularly experienced in mergers and acquisitions, asset purchases and sales, securities, venture capital investing, financing, joint ventures, distribution, licensing, franchising, executive employment and consulting agreements, partnerships, and all areas of media, marketing, public relations and entertainment law.

In addition to our core practice, we have worked closely with our clients since our earliest days in the establishment of new business ventures in the United States and Europe and in resolving all the related legal problems. We help our clients to organize and structure their businesses by negotiating and preparing agreements governing financing and personnel issues. As our clients grow and expand, so does the scope of our assignments: buying and selling businesses, raising capital and bank financing, participating in joint ventures, entering into strategic relationships, negotiating distribution and licensing agreements, going public, and in certain cases, helping them to restructure and/or ultimately liquidate or sell their businesses.

Pavia & Harcourt understands the special issues that clients face in a rapidly changing world. We have a special understanding and a particular sensitivity of the needs and concerns of foreign-based clients who wish to do business in the U.S. and of U.S.-based clients who wish to do business the U.S. and in Europe.
