Our Corporate attorneys play an integral role in structuring, negotiating and implementing a variety of business transactions and combinations involving both public and private institutions.

Bleakley Platt is committed to our clients’ success and believes that in some instances, an alternative fee arrangement may be preferable to a traditional hourly fee structure. Such arrangements require approval by the Firm’s management.  To learn more about the Firm’s policy regarding alternative fee arrangements, click here or speak with a partner.
