Experienced And Forward-Thinking Guidance For Businesses
Business gets more challenging every day. In addition to stiffer competition, companies face growing government regulation and more frequent litigation. Business owners need experienced counsel to help them comply with the law and avoid disagreements.
Comprehensive Counsel For Businesses
We embrace all aspects of business. We help entrepreneurs to analyze tax issues, form entities, obtain financing and secure trademarks. We prepare agreements among business owners to define their rights and obligations in terms of equity contributions, management and buy out in case of death, disability and retirement. We help companies put contracts into place with vendors, distributors and customers. We handle software as service agreements, licensing agreements, and the terms and conditions for online retailers, not to mention leases for brick-and-mortar facilities.
We can also assist with the formation of businesses. We also counsel clients on employment law issues, such as employee handbooks, employment agreements, separation agreements, as well as noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements.
Helping You Through Growth And Transition
As businesses grow, we also counsel them on employment contracts with noncompete, nondisclosure and other important provisions. If an employee does not work out, we also prepare employee separation agreements to bring finality to the termination.
Clients call on us for succession planning, especially in family situations. In conjunction with our estate planning team, our business lawyers devise structures to enable businesses to pass to younger generations after the passing of a founder.
