Corporate & Business Transactions


We assist national corporations and local businesses, partnerships, and individuals in business and commercial transactions, from corporate formation and partnership agreements to complex financing arrangements and multi-party contract negotiations.

From preparing formation documents and operating agreements to negotiating multi-million dollar contracts and advising on licensing and intellectual property agreements, our attorneys have done it all in the service of our business and corporate clients.  We’ve represented technology start-ups, local real estate developers, national corporations, and major-league sports teams.  Let us clear the way for your business to thrive.

Business Organization and Formation

Get your business off on the right foot.  Our attorneys have extensive experience advising and preparing documents for new businesses, corporations, partnerships, non-profit entities, and joint ventures, including operating agreements, corporate bylaws, stock, equity, and compensation arrangements, and employee handbooks and rules.

General Counsel Services

Every business has legal questions, but not every company has an attorney on payroll.  Our attorneys have advised and counseled local businesses and international corporations, and are versed in a wide variety of everyday business issues.  Whether they’re facing an employee dispute or a licensing negotiation, need help writing a joint-venture agreement or an end-user license, or want advice on a building lease or a corporate strategy, our clients count on us to serve as their general counsel.

Intellectual Property

Copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets are the heart of today’s businesses, and they can be easily lost without the proper legal safeguards.  Let us help you keep them safe by conducting comprehensive searches for conflicting marks, preparing state and national registration documents, drafting confidentiality agreements and auditing your trade-secret management procedures, and warding off competitors who might seek to infringe on your property and goodwill.
