Our attorneys handle all manner of general corporate matters for our clients, including business formations, commercial agreements, corporate housekeeping and general advising on legal matters that arise on an occasional basis. In some cases we act as “outside general counsel” for our smaller clients that do not have in-house counsel.
Our emerging company clients count on us to handle the wide variety of their legal needs. From structuring to formation to financing to intellectual property protection, emerging companies face a host of critical legal concerns. We assist them in prioritizing the legal issues they face and in handling the most pressing ones in a cost-effective matter.
Employment / Executive Compensation
Our attorneys handle the broad spectrum of employment-related activities, both on the company side and the employee/consultant side. Our practice extends from advisory and compliance-related activities for our company clients, to negotiation and drafting of employment, consulting and other related agreements, to advising on and representing our clients in employment claims and disputes.
Financing / Venture Capital
Our company clients count on us to assist them with various types of debt and equity offerings. We do a significant amount of work in the areas of venture capital and angel financing, where we assist our clients in structuring, negotiating and closing deals designed to achieve their business objectives.
Individual & Institutional Investors
Our attorneys represent investors of all types, including high net worth individual investors, family offices and VC funds. They look to us to assist with a variety of functions, whether it is diligencing, documenting and closing a transaction that has already been negotiated, or structuring and negotiating a deal from the outset or, for our less experienced investor clients, assisting them to develop an understanding of the available investment structures.
Intellectual property rights are very significant at every stage of our clients’ business cycles, from conception and formation, into growth and commercialization, and through to their ultimate exits. Whether it is assuring initial ownership of IP, registering and defending trademarks and copyrights, negotiating license agreements or collaborating with our co-counsel to advise on and file patent applications, our attorneys are very experienced in helping our clients manage and defend their critical IP assets.
In our increasingly global economy, we are regularly involved in cross-border activities, both inbound and outbound, representing both companies and investors. Our attorneys have significant experience in the details of commencing cross-border operations and forming local affiliate entities, in conducting regular cross-border business operations, and in structuring, negotiating and documenting cross-border transactions.
Litigation / Dispute Resolution
In the context of litigation and dispute resolution, we represent companies of all sizes as well as individuals. Our size and cost structure enables us to be equally effective in handling complex commercial matters as well as smaller, more routine matters. Our attorneys have practiced before state and federal courts, as well as in a range of arbitral and other alternative dispute resolution forums.
Mergers & Acquisitions / Joint Ventures
Our attorneys are very experienced in the representation of clients engaged in asset or stock sales and purchases, mergers, joint ventures, strategic partnerships and leveraged buy-outs, and we work across a broad array of industries. We advise companies that are preparing to enter the market, offer guidance on transaction structure, review term sheets, advise on and perform due diligence review and negotiate and draft documentation.
