Financial Services

No Obstacles

Armed with years of experience and a full suite of legal services — from real estate to corporate, tax, employment, IP and litigation — we attend to all of the needs of our financial services clients. As service providers, our lawyers have a deep appreciation of, and connection to, our financial services clients: our mission is to help our financial services clients help their own clients. And, because of our experience and perspective, we have developed a reputation for our ability to work collaboratively across our legal departments to provide financial services clients with legal solutions in a dynamic, efficient and effective way. We take great pride in having helped our clients expand their business, their brands and footprints all over the globe.

Food & Beverage

Grow Your Business

Perhaps no industry is more competitive than food and beverage. It’s also an industry filled with passionate, innovative people who need a steady partner to help bring their visions to life. For decades, Carr McClellan has been that partner, representing producers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers as they build their businesses expand their horizons.

As an example, our clients include many independent supermarket chains who we’ve guided through synergistic acquisitions, critical lease negotiations and complex financing transactions. And our team has a deep, hard-earned understanding of the challenges facing the industry, from licensing and permit issues, to game-changing food safety standards. We understand supply chain relationships, among other key areas, so we can anticipate issues and provide spot-on advice to our clients.

Technology

Bringing Your Vision to Life

In technology, more than any other industry, the old rules do not apply. New products, services, and systems emerge every day, creating markets that can span the globe. With each company that pushes the boundaries of what’s imaginable, there are new legal and business issues that can seem impossible to anticipate.

That’s where Carr McClellan comes in. We’re deeply embedded in the tech sector — it’s in our backyard. Our clients include entrepreneurs, start-ups, privately held companies, public corporations, universities, research institutions, individual investors, VCs, banks, and underwriters.

Our goal is to remove the obstacles that stand in our clients’ way, so that they’re free to reimagine the future. Experts from an array of practice areas collaborate to develop new, practical approaches that take into account the marketplace, the regulatory climate, and — most important — our clients’ vision for what their companies can achieve.
