Choosing the right type of business organization during the formation process is often the first step to building a successful enterprise. Our firm helps clients structure new businesses, ensuring that the organizational scheme best suits their business needs and protects them from both legal and financial liabilities. As part of the formation process, we also assist businesses in the preparation and implementation of articles, bylaws, operating agreements, and other documents necessary for compliance with corporate formalities. Along with advising local business owners, our experience includes setting up businesses outside of the United States as well as offshore parent companies.
General Counsel Services
Once a business is formed, the need for knowledgeable legal counsel does not end. Our firm offers ongoing general counsel services for new and established businesses, building long-term relationships with our clients and staying abreast of their business endeavors. We help businesses maintain accurate records, manage assets, enter into beneficial contracts, and ultimately develop and grow. As general counsel, our goal is to provide continuing information through regular updates related to business operations, and intercept potential problems before they affect productivity.
When advising businesses in their day-to-day operations, we regularly prepare, review, and negotiate documents for a wide variety of business transactions, including:
- Leases for office space and equipment
- Contracts for services
- Distribution agreements
- Franchise agreements
- License agreements
- Collection matters
We also assist clients with purchases and sales of businesses, including the review and preparation of letters of intent, confidentiality agreements, sales agreements, promissory notes, bills of sale, and other transfer documents. In all matters, we strive to close deals as swiftly as possible, while protecting and advancing our clients’ interests.
When a company faces litigation, experienced legal representation is vital to ensuring that the business’s rights and assets are protected.
