What is a Transaction or Transactional Lawyer?

Transactional law is a broad range of legal practices that boils down to lawyers helping their clients conduct commercial and consumer business transactions. Clients can range from individuals to publicly traded companies, and the issues span a simple lease to international mergers. As opposed to appearing in court, most transactional attorneys work on projects that do not entail a lawsuit.

At Burnham Law, our transactional attorneys handle a vast array of complex legal issues:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Corporate compliance
  • International contracts

The transaction attorneys at Burnham Law also handle common but important legal issues, including:

  • Business entity formation
  • Lease agreements
  • Contracts to buy/sell
  • New home construction

Some of Burnham Law’s most fulfilling work is creating and advising new small business entities. We have joyfully watched some of these entities grow into large-scale, multi-state enterprises.

The transactional attorneys at Burnham Law have also productively managed several unique projects, such as:

  • Drafting of employee handbooks
  • Drafted covenants for subdivision developments
  • Drafted/reviewed non-compete agreements

A traditional transactional attorney may rarely, if ever, step foot inside a courtroom. At Burnham Law, we have employed a team of transactional attorneys who also work directly with seasoned litigators. This partnership gives our transactional lawyers the extra advantage of having litigators give vital perspective on if and how a potential document could be argued in court.

To avoid future litigation, agreements should be clear on paper. Burnham Law’s goal in its transactional work is to provide a product that lasts until the original purposes have been served. To build products that last, Burnham Law provides clear, concise, and efficient documents. We believe in working closely with our transaction clients such that they are involved in the crafting documents from the start.

If you or your business are in need of a transaction attorney, contact Burnham Law, and we will be your partner in accomplishing your goals.
