Business Transactions

From the initial stage of 'due diligence,' through the negotiation of terms and contract language, to the closing of the deal, our attorneys have the education, experience, and expertise to protect your interests.

Contracts

Our lawyers understand that contracts do more than secure the ability to legally enforce specified obligations. The negotiation and drafting of contracts often provides the direct, clear communication between parties to a transaction that is essential to ensure that the parties never end up in court.

Cooperatives

Few lawyers know anything about cooperatives, but representing cooperatives has been a primary focus of our firm since the 1930's. Indeed, cooperatives are part of our firm's DNA.

Tax-exempt entities have unique legal needs. While they may not be subject to income or other taxes, these entities are nonetheless subject to reams of operational and governance requirements. Our lawyers represent numerous tax-exempt entities and are familiar with these regulatory obligations.

Utilities

Utilities, unlike nearly all other businesses, remain subject to significant competitive regulation. Our utilities lawyers have spent their careers practicing within this niche and have the knowledge, expertise, and personal contacts necessary to efficiently and effectively advise your business.

Tisinger Vance, and Steve Minor in particular, were engaged by the Board of Cobb EMC during a tumultuous and uncertain period. An entirely new Board had been elected by members who wanted to see significant positive change. Steve was invaluable in helping, guiding, and advising as we drafted an entirely new set of bylaws for member approval, talked through issues and dealt with competing needs and interests. The firm's historical knowledge and Steve's personal expertise became a valued asset in our efforts, and what they helped us craft was not only approved by our members, but stands as the most useful and thoughtful set of bylaws Cobb EMC has ever had.
