Our lawyers help clients choose the appropriate type of business entity. Based on your specific goals and circumstances, we may recommend an LLC, corporation, partnership or non-profit organization. We prepare all the necessary organizational documents. The most successful businesses are those that endure. That´s why, at the outset, we ask our clients to anticipate events that might lead to future disagreement and to resolve them before they occur. We present questions such as

  • How will the business be governed?
  • How will profits be divided?
  • How will capital be allocated?

We also obtain permits, state and federal tax identification numbers, copyrights and trademarks. We can help negotiate and analyze contracts, franchise agreements and leases, and assist with other agreements and business transactions.

Business Counsel

Our business law attorneys assist management with a wide variety of concerns, such as contract interpretation and negotiation, government regulations, insurance coverage, intellectual property, and non-competition agreements. We also advise our clients about all aspects of business governance including the fiduciary duties of directors and officers, and the rights of shareholders.

Business Litigation

Disputes can arise in any business venture. When they do, it is important to consult an attorney who is skilled in business litigation. We have decades of experience resolving disputes for our business clients. Because of our reputation as effective trial attorneys, we are often able to resolve disputes successfully and more economically out of court.
