  • 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.

Conducting Internal Investigations. Businesses can best defend against government oversight and possible sanction by developing internal procedures to ensure that all employees conduct themselves in a lawful manner. Internal investigations and/or audits are the first step towards ensuring compliance with the law.”

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.
