Mr. Suelthaus has guided the acquisition, disposition, and reorganization of a variety of business entities, including banks and bank holding companies. With Mr. Suelthaus' expertise, this firm was first in Missouri to accomplish such transactions as an all-cash triangular merger involving an interim bank and first nationally to achieve a reverse stock split for a national bank, ending the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's self-imposed moratorium on these transactions. With his unique strategies, Mr. Suelthaus' clients have also received many tax benefits in their business transactions.
Over the years, Mr. Suelthaus has represented clients in a number of contests for control by shareholders and directors (offensively and defensively). Such disputes have included assertion of shareholder rights, proxy contests, controversies among members of the board of directors, poison pills, takeovers, forced and agreed buyouts and split-ups, and other serious corporate issues.
