Business/Commercial Law

Our firm has a long history in counseling companies and individuals in business and commercial transactions as well as in litigation.

We assist our creative and entrepreneurial clients to choose the business form – corporate, LLC or partnership – that will be most compatible with their enterprises and best suit their visions.  We collaborate with our professional colleagues in the areas of accounting and tax law to make sure our clients understand both the tax implications of their business formation choices and also the best practices to follow going forward.

We work to ensure that our business clients understand the importance of properly drafted business contracts, which we tailor to their specific needs and concerns with a view always to avoiding future complications and unnecessary disputes.  We are extremely detailed-oriented in reviewing and drafting operating agreements, partnership agreements, asset purchase agreements, distribution agreements, non-disclosure agreements, real estate sale agreements and leases and other business and commercial contracts.  Our contracts are comprehensive, clear and user friendly so that our clients can understand fully all of the terms and obligations they are accepting before they sign.

When necessary, we engage in litigation, including complex commercial litigation matters.  We take care that our clients understand both the risks and expenses of litigation so that when they choose such a route, they can be confident that judicial intervention is the best option for vindicating their rights and making themselves whole.  Our litigation approach, although aggressive, is never narrow-minded or rigid, and we always consider all options with the goal of finding creative solutions to difficult disputes.
