Committees are a great way to get involved with your local bar association, network with your colleagues and become a leader in your legal community.


General Description

  1. The Transaction Law Committee (“Committee”) is a practice committee of the Palm Beach County Bar Association.  The activities of the group are coordinated by a Committee Chair (2019-2020 Chair: Jeffrey Marcus, The Law Offices of Jeffrey Marcus) and the other Committee members.
  2. Transactional attorneys advise organizations and individuals on legal issues affecting their business. These attorneys also counsel clients on corporate governance, compliance issues, as well as commercial matters. Transactional practice involves researching, drafting, negotiating, and reviewing documents. These documents include but are not limited to: documents needed for mergers & acquisitions, commercial contracts, documents needed for the creation of new corporate entities, and the closing documents for the purchase of real property. Corporate Law, International Business Law, Commercial Law, Bankruptcy Law, Tax Law, Banking Law, Business Law, and Real Estate Law are a few areas of law considered to be under the umbrella of Transaction Law.
  3. The principal purpose of the Committee is to provide opportunities for the exchange of best practices among Committee members, networking, as well as to provide education to fellow attorneys via luncheons and CLE programs.
  4. The Committee holds monthly luncheons as well as CLE programs; please see Palm Beach County Bar Association Calendar of Events for dates, times, and locations.
  5. Committee members and/or outside speakers may make presentations to the Committee but at the request, or with the prior approval, of the Chair and other Committee members.
