The world’s leading companies and entrepreneurs know that to compete in the modern business environment, focus and flexibility are essential. From formation and early-stage transactions through complex high-stakes financings and exits, Egan Nelson combines highly experienced top-tier lawyers with a lean, tech-enabled platform built to maximize both the caliber of strategic legal counsel and the level of efficiency delivered to clients.
At Egan Nelson, excellent credentials and experience combine with pragmatic strategic advisory that is right-sized for both established and emerging companies underserved by traditional law firms.
Clients build long-term relationships with Egan Nelson because they need the specialized, high-impact senior counsel historically found only in the country’s largest firms, but they also expect the responsiveness, lean focus, and “hands on” culture of a boutique firm.
A lack of an inflexible bureaucracy and pricing structure allows our firm to serve the needs of an elite client base with diverse growth paths and business models. From bootstrapped or VC-backed startups to multi-national corporations, Egan Nelson’s agile approach to pricing and staffing treats clients as unique business partners with individualized legal needs, rather than arm’s-length, standardized sources of revenue.
Our broad, international network of senior-level specialist attorneys built and curated over decades of practicing top-tier law covers the entire spectrum of pricing models, practice groups, and firm structures. The inflexible “one firm fits all” approach to “full service” law is no longer necessary. Egan Nelson learns its clients’ unique legal needs, and connects them with specialist attorneys with the right experience, pricing, and culture for the task.
Shane Egan’s practice focuses on a broad range of corporate and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and asset sales, private equity and venture capital investments, fund formation and investment partnerships, corporate reorganizations and recapitalizations (including bankruptcy and workout transactions), joint ventures, business organizations, public securities offerings and private placements, securities compliance matters, and commercial real estate transactions. Mr. Egan has represented and counseled a broad spectrum of clients, including local companies and individuals, Fortune 500 companies, investment funds and their sponsors, and investment banking firms. Prior to founding Egan Nelson LLP, Mr. Egan practiced in the Dallas and New York offices of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
