McAfee & Taft’s Business Transactions and Finance lawyers provide a full range of transactional and finance-related services. Our lawyers work as a team to provide a comprehensive, full-service approach to meeting our clients’ needs for transactional business representation that has been the hallmark of our practice throughout the firm’s history. From veteran lawyers with decades of nationally recognized experience and expertise to young, energetic and efficient associates, we can tailor the ideal team for transactions of every size and complexity. For more than 60 years, the goal of McAfee & Taft has been to provide outstanding service and value to our business clients.

The firm’s corporate and business lawyers have been perennially top-ranked in Oklahoma by the publishers of the prestigious Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business since its debut edition, and the firm holds the distinction of having the most individual attorneys named to Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America, and Oklahoma Super Lawyers/Rising Stars in business law categories.

Since most clients’ business needs are not limited to one or two areas of legal expertise, most of the lawyers in the group are experienced in several other practice areas as well. Links to these specific practice areas are found on the right. Perhaps more importantly, our business lawyers are skilled at collaboration with lawyers in various other practice areas within the firm to meet the diverse requirements of our business clients. We draw heavily on the expertise of McAfee & Taft lawyers who concentrate on such areas as tax planning, real estate, employee benefits, environmental regulation, intellectual property, public and private finance, and bankruptcy and creditors’ rights. As a result, we have the capability to bring together the necessary expertise to satisfy our clients’ needs, and to do so in a cost-efficient manner.

Our clients come from all walks of life and include individuals, public and private corporations of all sizes, limited liability companies, partnerships and other forms of limited liability business organizations, private and public foundations, and other organizations involved in or contemplating any type of business or commercial transaction. We regularly advise clients regarding general contract matters; supply and distribution agreements; real estate acquisition, development, management and finance; investor and investment banking relations; licensing and franchising; deferred compensation and other executive benefit plans; credit facilities and lending transactions; dissolution; and other matters. We also represent lenders and equity investors as they participate in the economic growth of the region by funding the acquisition of business enterprises, construction projects, and all types of related corporate finance activities.
