The business client is the core of our practice. From choosing an entity to raising capital and attracting and retaining talented employees, from mergers and acquisitions through developing and implementing an exit strategy for the company’s founders, our attorneys can help you realize your business’ greatest potential, and protect you from pitfalls along the way.
We serve as General Counsel to a multitude of businesses across industries, from software developers to steel factories, from medical practices to internet service providers, from equipment wholesalers to real estate developers. We are able to draw on our knowledge of the law and experience with other clients to recommend and implement successful strategies, and minimize and avoid practices that may be detrimental to the longevity of your business. We stay on top of legal trends, with a particular emphasis on the ever changing tax laws, to alert our clients of opportunities to maximize their business or limit their liability at the earliest possible time.
By taking time to learn about the demands of your business and the norms of your industry, we can provide custom solutions to any issue your business may face. We are aware that not all issues call for a legal solution, and our seasoned attorneys are ready to offer practical advice and reasonable solutions to both the everyday and the extraordinary business problem. This practical approach to your issues is reflected in our sensitivity to tangible and intangible costs of any course of action. When we evaluate different solutions with our clients, we discuss not only the risks and rewards, but also the legal fees, administrative costs and the possible impact on relationships.
An often overlooked cost of every business transaction is the tax cost. Every decision that a business owner makes, from the form of entity to compensation of employees, from joint ventures to sale of the business, has a tax consequence. By drawing on the expertise of the attorneys in our tax practice, we are able to recommend the most tax advantaged way to structure any transaction. Our goal is to help you reduce the stake of the government as your "silent partner".
We assist existing and new clients as they have moved their businesses into the digital age, or begun new cyber-enterprises. Through our e-commerce practice, we help our clients apply traditional legal principals to new business mediums, and assist clients in ensuring their ownership and protecting their right in the valuable and elusive commodity of intellectual property.
While we offer practical solutions, by drawing on the strength of our Litigation Department we stand ready to vigorously advocate your rights. Whether you are defending a lawsuit, enforcing a contract, or need to enjoin a competitor, our skilled and experienced business litigation attorneys ensure that your interests are zealously represented. By demonstrating our willingness to peruse your rights in a court of law, we are able to put you in a stronger position to negotiate a settlement.
