Additional Information on Our Corporate Law & Commerical Transactions Services
From start-up, choosing the proper form of business entity can protect your personal assets. Considerations include the liabilities of running a business, tax advantages, and proper structure needed. In addition, certain ownership or governance regulations can assist you in attracting and raising capital from outside sources.
Corporate finance can be a complicated practice, especially for new business entrepreneurs. When businesses have to find various sources of funding while still being mindful of the capital structure of their companies, the actions that they take to increase the value of the business can often come under increased scrutiny from regulatory bodies and shareholders alike. Therefore, experienced business attorneys are important to help with complex corporate and commercial law issues specific to your business.
Contracts and commercial agreements are the cornerstone and foundation of all functioning companies and business entities. However, many companies don't get the assistance of dedicated legal counsel to draft custom legal agreements. When companies choose to forego professional legal advice for the sake of cost, it can cost them more in the long run. However, IP and business experienced lawyers can advise on specific business industry needs.
Businesses often overlook employment policies and agreements. Instead, companies rely on outdated form contracts that do not specifically address their companies’ specific practices. In addition, companies should consider ever-changing laws, regulations and technological threats such as hacking or social media issues in agreements. As a result, many companies fail to recognize that the departure of an employee can result in loss of customer databases or other valuable trade secrets simply because of a lack of legal protection and foresight.
We are experienced with evolving corporate and commercial law issues that should be considered in drafting agreements.
Complex business transactions can make or break a business. As a result, from deciding what kind of business entity to form, to financing and operating your business, to conducting mergers or acquisitions, to exiting or liquidating the business, we can assist you at every stage of your business’s lifecycle.
We have experience in handling business transactions and business litigation. Whether assisting you in drafting your employment contracts or helping you secure capital investment, we can help with legal advice at each stage of business growth.
All companies and entrepreneurs know that proper business planning is an integral part of running any successful business. While many recognize the need to consult legal counsel during the formation of a business entity, few realize that having legal counsel assist in operating the business and navigating a successful exit from a business venture can be just as important.
Whether you are creating or operating a business or leaving one, it is important to ensure that you maintain possession of, or are properly compensated for, any important assets or intellectual property contributed to or generated by the business. Drafting proper legal documents to protect your assets when you create, operate, or exit a business is essential.
Our IP and business attorneys provide corporate and commercial law services covering a wide range of business planning needs.
We recognize that companies of all sizes favor differing approaches when it comes to retaining legal counsel. Many companies are reluctant to hire outside counsel, and it is common for smaller companies to be cautious in budgeting for legal needs. However, it is important to have immediate access to an attorney that understands your business and is prepared to promptly respond to urgent needs. Even companies that have their own in-house counsel often need the support of a regular outside general counsel familiar with operational processes and business objectives.
We offer virtual general counsel services to large business enterprises, as well as emerging companies.
It is a common mistake for companies to overlook the handling of intellectual property and information technology assets during mergers and acquisitions. Companies can avoid these situations by enlisting our attorneys and their unique knowledge to help ensure their intellectual property and information technology assets are properly protected and leveraged during these transitions.

Furthermore, we counsel company owners, executives, boards of directors, officers and other officials on internal controls, reporting structure, indemnification, risk management, litigation management, and dispute resolution.
Our IP and business attorneys provide corporate and commercial law services as well as counseling on the intricate corporate governance issues often ignored by small and large companies alike.
Companies often use franchising as a common business model to expand their business and brand. The franchisor is the company that has developed the system and processes, while the franchisee is the third party that hopes to contract for the right to operate a branch of the business. Moreover, due to the importance of the franchisor’s brands and related intellectual property, complicated issues regarding trademarks and trade secrets may arise. Similarly, the more famous the franchise, the more complex the relationships and agreements governing the relationship are likely to be.
Master services agreements are contracts that govern future transactions and agreements. These agreements help protect the interests and visions of future transactions of the parties. Our IP, corporate and commercial law attorneys have experience in drafting custom tailored master services agreements to fit specific business needs.
Hold harmless and indemnity agreements are contracts that establish the protection of one party from another in the event of certain activities causing unforeseen liabilities. Such indemnity agreements can be necessary in certain business transactions. Indemnity can be found in the form of a contract or a clause of a contract.
