BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL

Business Formation

We can assist startups in forming their business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and more complex business structures. Our services include a detailed analysis of the client's business plans, expected ownership and investment structure, and potential legal and regulatory risks. Based on our analysis, we prepare advice and recommendations tailored to each specific client on a host of business formation decisions.

General Counsel Services

For many startups and early-stage businesses, hiring in-house counsel may not be efficient or even possible. Our general counsel services assist businesses without in-house counsel by providing direct access to our attorneys as and when potential legal issues arise. Our attorneys will then either directly handle legal matters within our practice areas or refer the matter to outside counsel with the relevant and necessary expertise. 

Contracts

Contracts are a daily focus for most businesses. A successful business agreement can create a relationship that benefits all parties involved. An unsuccessful business agreement can lead to a lengthy legal dispute that ends up costing substantial time and money. Our attorneys have the knowledge of the law and of the world of business necessary to advise our clients on their contract needs, including negotiation, drafting, and review.

Frequently Used Contracts

We have negotiated or drafted a variety of agreements for clients in a range of industries. Examples include:

  • Operating Agreements

  • Partnership Agreements

  • Employment Agreements

  • Master Services Agreements

  • Confidentiality Agreements

  • Non-Competition Agreements

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements

  • eCommerce Agreements
