Our strength lies in advising mid-market companies on all aspects of the corporate and commercial activities, including:
We advise domestic and foreign clients regarding the structuring, negotiation, and documentation of international business transactions. Critical to the success of our work is an understanding of cultural differences and a sensitivity to diverse business styles.
We assist clients with all aspects of their legal business needs, including business policy and strategic advice, formation of joint ventures, strategic alliances and corporate partnering, and advising and drafting joint development, technology sharing, agency, distributorship and manufacturing and supply agreements.
As lawyers experienced in assisting clients with growing their businesses, we understand the need to resolve disputes in a cost and time effective manner. We endeavor to avoid costly litigation and to provide alternatives through mediation and arbitration. When doing so is in our client’s best interest, we aggressively litigate matters through trial. Our lawyers have successfully litigated complex contract disputes, bankruptcy claims, corporate issues, partnership disputes, technology and intellectual property conflicts, and employment matters. We regularly handle legal matters across the United States, in both state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration.
We guide our clients through every step of the creation and development of their business ventures by providing them with practical, cost-effective representation from corporate formation, through financing and growth, to mergers and acquisitions. Our services include private placements, angel rounds of financing, venture capital financing on behalf of the company or investors, debt financing and asset-based lending.
We give experienced counseling to both employees and employers in employment disputes before the Labor Commission, in state and federal courts, and in private arbitration and mediation. In our experience, the best way for employers to avoid employment disputes is to take advanced preventative measures. Consequently, we provide tailored advice in the following areas: effective documentation, education and training of managers, employment policies and employee handbooks, preparing and negotiating employment contracts, consulting agreements and separation agreements, discrimination and harassment compliance, stock option and employee stock purchase plans, reductions of personnel, minimizing risk of liability; and supervising internal investigations.
Our extensive real estate expertise allows us to represent buyers, sellers, developers, owners' associations, property managers, tenants and commercial landlords with their real estate development, sales, and leasing, as well as, commercial condominium projects, financing, investment, acquisitions and dispositions.
We assist employers and foreign investors in meeting their needs to obtain immigrant and non-immigrant visas for themselves or their employees, while endeavoring to minimize the inconvenience, delay, expense and potential liability related to immigration issues.
We work with our entrepreneur clients to develop a plan to secure the future for themselves and their beneficiaries. We prepare the documents necessary to implement the client's estate plan, including wills, trusts, property agreements, durable powers of attorney, and health care directives.
