Where Deals Get Done.
COMMERCIAL SERVICES – We Are Your Business Partner.
Most Large Corporations have “in-house” legal advisors, who serve as an efficient single point-of-contact for all the legal needs of the Company.
Our GOAL at CHERN & CO. (C&C) is to fulfil a similar role for emerging companies, and other established businesses, which have yet to have an in-house legal team or in-house legal advisor. For Companies with existing in-house lawyers, we provide In-House Counsel Resources to support them in their work.
We are often called upon by Clients to provide clear and pragmatic advice on their strategic and challenging transactions. Our experience extends beyond transactional work and we also look after our Clients through every stage of the company life-cycle. Our advice also covers all aspects of governance and administration of companies.
Hence, as a C&C’s Client, you can be rest assured that we will look after your routine legal needs and commercial transactions, so that you and your team can solely focus on providing strategic value to your businesses.
