Our Aim

Our aim is to always provide creative and rational counsel while assisting our clients with corporate law services.

Our team of corporate attorneys is passionate about small startups and large international corporations alike. We provide dedicated, meticulous service to ensure the success of each client.

Our emphasis on transparency with our clients allows us to form strong, long-term connections with our clientele based on trust and our commitment to excellence. Our corporate attorneys each share a desire to deliver legal representation and counseling that is uniquely targeted at each individual client’s current needs while keeping in mind the goals that our client has for future growth.

Not only do we advise clients looking to form a business entity and give them the assistance they need when it comes to detailing the relationships and the rights of the corporation’s owners and shareholders, but we also work with our clients through every stage of the business life cycle.

Whether our clients are just starting out, seeking opportunities for growth, or looking towards the future, when it comes to succession planning and exit strategies, our corporate attorneys are ready and willing to share their depth of knowledge to serve each client’s best interests.

Corporate Governance

When it comes to business, corporate governance cannot be overlooked. It affects everyone— from owners to shareholders and investors, all the way down to the customer and their satisfaction with the products, services, and relationship to the brand.

Our corporate attorneys are well-versed in public and privately traded corporate governance. We are available to create a solid foundation for each client’s business in ways that reduce the risk of disaster striking down the road. We’re also not afraid to dive into the middle of a crisis to manage risk and provide creative, rational solutions to get the business back on track quickly. As we address the underlying problem, we also keep an eye on the future to avoid future problems from arising.

From governance requirements, fiduciary responsibility, financial reporting, board composition, management succession, disclosure issues, takeover bids, stockholder rights, conflicts of interest, and right down to compensation, our corporate attorneys have the experience to cover all of your bases.

Strategic Long-Term Business Planning

Strategic business planning is a cornerstone of successful businesses, whether your business is just starting out or well-established. At Thrift McLemore, our team of corporate attorneys works directly with our clients to learn the background of the business, current needs, and future goals.

Long-term planning can never start too early, and legal assistance in market research, inventory cost analysis, and financial management strategies is key to any business plan.

Whether our clients are public or privately held companies, our corporate legal team offers individualized solutions that are targeted at achieving long-term goals. When it comes to creating a formalized business strategy, implementation, troubleshooting, monitoring, and providing outcome assessments and review from a legal perspective can drastically improve successful outcomes in line with the mission and values of your business.
