Business Entity Formation

Deciding how to organize your company--a Sole Proprietership, a Partnership, a Public Limited Company, a Private Limited Company, a Foreign Company, a Liaison / Branch Office or some other form of entity, can be confusing. The business and tax aspects of your decision vary greatly. We can help you establish the operating structure most beneficial for you.

Commercial Finance

Whether representing a lending institution or a publicly or privately held business, we understand that time is money. Loan documentation is not all the same. The negotiation of such documents poses special considerations affecting your company's future flexibility and rights. We are accustomed to providing this work quickly.

Commercial Paper and Business Transactions

We assist our clients in the sensitive work of forming documents for maintaining relationships with their customers, suppliers and employees. These include employment agreements, confidentiality agreements, manufacturing and supply agreements, manufacturers' representative agreements, joint ventures and other agreements necessary in today's competitive business environment. Sadly, we know much of the ever common litigation that we read about in this area could have been prevented. We take pride in keeping our clients out of this expensive litigation process.

Corporate Governance

We advise clients on rights and responsibilities with respect to members, directors, and shareholders. Whether it's an indemnity clause in one's by-laws, an insurance contract or both, the issues concerning member / director liability can have substantial impact on one's wealth. Advance attention to these concerns can prevent many of these problems.
