Commercial Real Estate

Each of these areas deserves quality time for proper review to avoid post closing pitfalls. McManamy Jackson, PC lawyers and staff have handled all facets of the commercial real estate transaction over many years for buyers, sellers, lending institutions, and sellers.

Corporate Law

McManamy Jackson represents a select number of privately held businesses in matters ranging from initial formation, to transactions to general counsel where everyday business practice presents legal concerns.

There may be no other area of law where the client is looking for and needs “counsel,” which is a different than needing a “lawyer” and not in the sense of drafting documents or filing a lawsuit. Rather it is via counsel in the sense of apprising strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities. McManamy Jackson has developed a strong niche in providing this type of counsel to privately or closely held corporations. These clients want their lawyer to deliver sound legal advice while taking into account everyday real-life business concerns.

Drafting legal papers involves creating a document that best achieves the client’s purposes, intentions and goals. The process is as much art as it is science. Our corporate lawyers fully understand that sometimes a legal expert in a particular field is required to properly handle the client’s needs (i.e. labor, intellectual property, environmental). To this end McManamy Jackson retains solid relationships with the best legal minds in the State of Georgia in these specialized fields.
