Business, Commercial, Employment Law
We assist our clients with respect to a wide range of business issues and actively participate in negotiating and drafting corporate transactions such as the purchase, sale, and merger of businesses and assets, and general commercial contracts among businesses.
We also regularly advise businesses with respect to employment issues, corporate governance matters, capitalization and finance, stockholder concerns, commercial transactions, sales, matters involving the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), mergers and acquisitions, and litigation.
We further assist our clients on matters involving general business law, including contracting, commercial leasing, commercial litigation, and insurance coverage disputes.
We are also actively engaged in working with entrepreneurs at all stages, from start up through mid-level to established concerns. We advise entrepreneurs with respect to formation issues, including the selection of the appropriate corporate form (corporation, limited liability company, partnership, etc.). We guide our clients through the process of constructing the necessary management documents, including articles of incorporation, shareholders' agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements, and many other corporate documents. We further assist such clients with due diligence and fund-raising efforts.
We further work with companies and individuals with respect to employment law issues, including the creation of in-house policies for avoiding discrimination and harassment complaints, and the creation of handbooks and employment contracts. We also work on non-competition, non-solicitation, and severance agreements, as well as litigation arising from the same.
We are also there for our clients when things go bad, and we have substantial experience with resolving and litigating disputes arising from commercial transactions, corporate disputes, management disagreements, partnership split-ups, and fraud, theft, and competition situations.
