We help our clients carry their legal burden while achieving their goals and optimizing their businesses.
Whether it is forging or revising a joint venture agreement, setting up the right corporate entity, or ensuring a provision in an agreement does not unduly restrict a clients’ ability to pursue other ventures, we review and revise our clients’ contracts and legal needs to ensure their interests are protected.
We are knowledgeable in a wide variety of industries, including apparel, entertainment, medical, and real estate. We have represented authors, banks, breweries, restauranteurs, sports-apparel companies, surgeons, and brand-name surf-wear companies, among many others.
We work closely with our clients so we understand their business interests and goals so that we can tailor our advice to their needs and requirements.
We advise clients on how to navigate day-to-day corporate responsibilities, including corporate housekeeping matters (such as minutes, bylaws, and annual meetings), employee agreements, rental agreements, vendor agreements, and responding to and managing internal and external disputes (such as demand letters and cease and desist letters).
We relish working on the day-to-day matters with our clients as it helps deepen our relationship and affords us the opportunity to learn more about our clients’ needs and goals.
Our understanding of disputes and contractual ambiguities enables us to see potential problems and unfair advantages built into otherwise standardized contracts with vendors and contractors. For example, vendor contracts often have built-in automated renewal clauses that are traps for the unwary and which should be stricken at the outset by responsible counsel.
In addition to day-to-day corporate work, we also assist our clients in preparing, reviewing, and revising special and material transactions, including the purchase or sale of a business, the incorporation of a company, or the formation of a joint venture.
We help our clients negotiate transactions and assist them in hammering out the details for a term sheet and then translating those terms into an effective, comprehensive, and well-understood agreement.
We have helped our clients prepare agreements relating to founding companies, partnerships, operating agreements, joint ventures, inventions, sponsorships, vendors, publicity, events, trademarks, licenses, leases, and real estate.
