Business Counseling and Representation
We provide a full range of guidance on corporate governance and related matters, including advising clients on best practices and compliance issues.
Many of our business clients turn to us for ongoing advice. We assist our clients by drafting and negotiating commercial agreements, including internal organizational documents, shareholders agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements, termination agreements, compensation plans, and restructuring, workout and dissolution documents.
We also handle choice of entity issues, equipment leasing, real estate property leasing, financings and franchise, distributor, confidentiality, and customer agreements.
Our business and corporate tax lawyers represent companies and individuals in structuring transactions and planning to achieve the best possible tax results. We also represent companies before state and federal tax authorities in audits and dispute resolution programs before the start of tax proceedings, and in tax court litigation.
The attorneys in our Corporate Practice Group serve in a strategic advisory role to clients when they are involved in litigation. Working closely with attorneys in our Commercial Litigation Practice Group, our corporate lawyers help develop cost-effective plans to defend and prosecute our clients’ positions successfully in federal and state courts, various arbitration forums, as well as in hearings before regulatory agencies.
