Attorney Leemhuis' practice emphasizes transactional matters primarily focused on private and public finance. He represents various business entities in raising capital through private placements and public offerings, and in fundamental business transactions such as mergers and acquisitions. These business clients range from small, single shareholder organizations to mid-size public companies with international sales. Representation of these larger businesses involves ongoing reporting and disclosure required by state and federal securities law. The smaller entities require counseling on choice of entity issues, structural questions, and shareholder matters. Representation of individuals involves significant estate and business succession planning. His practice also includes municipal bond law as either bond counsel or issuer's counsel.
