Business Law & Transactions

Business Law

Gallagher & Kennedy’s business law and transactions group seek to build lasting relationships with clients by first understanding their business goals and objectives and then applying our exceptional legal knowledge and practical experience to achieve results. For over 40 years, our attorneys have been meeting our clients’ legal needs through a dedication to service excellence.


While our lawyers hail from some of the country’s finest law schools, hold numerous distinctions and honors, and have decades of invaluable experience in all types of business and transactional matters, what truly sets our business law and transactions group apart is the recognition that superior client service begins with understanding our clients’ unique business practices and objectives.  Simply put, we are better at our business because we take the time to understand yours.  This understanding allows us to utilize the same sound business practices that you use in your businesses: we manage your legal matters to efficiently meet your unique legal needs and achieve your desired results with keen sensitivities to time and expense management.

Since our clients’ businesses do not operate in a vacuum, we also recognize the importance of understanding the legal environment and communities in which you operate. Led by Terence W. Thompson, the Editor-in-Chief and Lead Author of the seminal treatise Arizona Corporate Practice and the past chair of the Arizona State Bar committee that penned the current Arizona Business Corporation Act and the Arizona Nonprofit Corporation Act, our business and transactional lawyers are leaders of the bar where they have been active in shaping the laws that affect businesses. They are also leaders in the communities where you and your employees live and work, with a rich history of serving on nonprofit boards and providing pro bono legal services to charitable organizations. This long standing bar and community leadership creates an operational strength for the firm that ultimately pays dividends where it matters most: to our clients.


As a full-service business law firm, our lawyers have experience in a wide range of practice areas. Our multidisciplinary approach to business law and transactions enables us to assemble the right team of lawyers from within the firm to most efficiently meet your legal needs in nearly every aspect of your operation across every phase of the life-cycle of your business.

This team approach also enables us to serve businesses of all sizes and in many diverse industries.  Some of our clients are private entities, while others are public companies; most of our clients operate in Arizona, but many have operations across the United States and the globe; our clients range from visionary start-ups to multinational Fortune 500 companies.
