Just as our litigation team is ready to defend against alleged violations, the CMS transactional team help to ensure legal and regulatory compliance for our corporate clients. Our transactional team regularly advise individuals and businesses on employment issues and prepare related documents used in transactional matters.

And often, our clients just need some day-to-day advice on smaller matters too.
