Camara & Sibley acts for clients in the full range of corporate and commercial transactions, including company formation and structure; company acquisitions, mergers, and divestitures, including successor liability and earnout issues; partnerships and joint ventures; asset purchase and sale agreements; commercial transactions, including long-term supply agreements; project finance, including EPC agreements; financing transactions, including lending, factoring, hedges, and derivatives; fund formation and private placements; and antitrust or securities clearance.

Camara & Sibley also advises corporations and boards of directors on corporate governance matters, including antitrust compliance, antibribery and trade issues (including import and export regulations, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and Bribery Act), environmental compliance, intellectal-property licensing and protection, securities compliance, and general business advice. We can assist clients in drafting and implementing codes of conduct and ongoing compliance policies in these areas. We especially enjoy helping clients overcome the unique legal challenges they face in launching new products and technologies or experimenting with new structures or ways of doing business.

Our industry experience includes aviation, chemicals and plastics, energy, insurance, oil and gas (services and production), software, telecommunications, and waste management. We regularly advise Chinese and Latin American clients on inbound business in the United States and United States clients on international transactions in China or Latin America (especially Brazil).

Our structure, in which litigators work closely with corporate lawyers on advisory projects, is particularly well suited for solving complicated business problems where opposition from governments or private litigants is likely. Often, the same lawyers who crafted the solution for you will defend it or operationalize it before government agencies or in court.
