Our knowledge of the laws regulating commerce helps us advise our clients so that they may negotiate and close transactions efficiently. Whether your business transactions involve leases, retail sales, accounts receivable sales ("factoring") or wholesale & distribution, our knowledge of state and federal commercial law, and international trade regulations can help your company avoid many pitfalls and ensure your agreements reflect the level of risk that was intended and acceptable.
If you are financing inventory, personalty or accounts receivable, or are in the equipment leasing business, our services can save you time and help reduce your business risk by properly securing your loans. We structure commercial transactions, draft security agreements and loan documents, perform U.C.C. searches and advise clients on the order of priority for assets you may be considering for collateralization. In commercial contracts, attention to detail is what frequently distinguishes a problem from a solution.
Real Property and Personal Property
From single family homes to commercial buildings, we have helped clients with purchases, sales, financing and litigating disputes involving their real property. We also have experience with transactions involving aircraft, pleasure and commercial vessels, motor vehicles, business assets, precious stones and precious metals. We help protect what you value and the stock and trade of your business.
Negotiable Instruments and Banking
The laws that are applicable to promissory notes, commercial paper, negotiable instruments and loan documentation can be complex and confusing: our experience with these financing and payment related documents and instruments has helped protect and prepare lenders and borrowers so that their risks and obligations were better managed.
Regardless of business entity type, we provide experienced legal advice about business structures, from pre-formation structure analysis, corporate governance, operating agreements, buy-out agreements, private mergers & acquisitions and dispute resolution. When your business interests are at risk, we also help enforce your rights through arbitration and litigation in state and federal courts and foreign jurisdictions. We are Outside Counsel for various businesses and also represent individual officers and shareholders.
We provide legal guidance to businesses that possess valuable intellectual property (IP) assets. The overarching objective of our IP services is to facilitate the development of our clients' IP and protect their competitive advantage. We accomplish this, in part, by maintaining open and updated communication with our clients and analyzing the most effective approach to achieving those goals. By employing calculated IP asset management strategies, our firm is able to assist clients in managing their intellectual property.
