The firm counsels a large number of varied business enterprises, including companies whose securities are publicly held and traded, providing advice and guidance on the varied legal issues they encounter. Those issues require attorneys in the firm to be conversant in a range of legal subspecialties, including federal and state securities law, the law of sales and commercial transactions, bankruptcy and debtor-creditor law, employment law, and intellectual property law such as trademarks and copyrights. Our business clients enter into numerous transactions and the attorneys in the firm negotiate and draft the contracts and other documents embodying those agreements, including purchase and sale of businesses, shareholder agreements, shareholder and partnership dissolutions or buyout agreements, commercial lending and equipment financing agreements, employment agreements, partnership and joint venture agreements, license agreements, and franchise agreements, as well as real estate transactions involving the acquisition, financing, and leasing of real property.
We have served as general corporate and/or special securities counsel to a wide range of publicly-held and private clients, both domestic companies and U.S.-based subsidiaries of foreign companies. Our services include such tasks as the structuring and formation of the corporate enterprise, implementation of shareholder arrangements and preparation of employment agreements, as well as advice on a wide variety of day-to-day corporate matters.
