Business and Corporate Operations

We support the formation, operation and expansion of LLCs, corporations and partnerships. We act as virtual in-house counsel for entities at various stages in their development and growth. We help new and existing companies prioritize their legal needs related to their budgets and reasonable expectations. We assist our clients with their transactional and joint venture negotiations, domestically and worldwide, and structuring of their business, including drafting of operating agreements, shareholder agreements, convertible debt, stock purchase agreements, and buy/sell issues. We also have intensive experience with international (“cross-border”) joint ventures and protocol agreements. Our guidance is valuable as companies transition in size, form, focus and relations with affiliates. We support partners, shareholders, and/or founders through dissolutions, transfers and disputes as well. As they start-up and evolve business ventures also have needs for our other services: trademark, trade secret, licensing, contracts, internet, dispute avoidance and other areas of focused legal expertise.
