We represent corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships, advising each on the steps to take to success.
For start-ups, we can advise clients on the advantages and disadvantages of choice of entity and the steps necessary for formation. For ongoing businesses, we provide counsel on operational issues, as well as preparation of agreements among shareholders or other owners. We represent both sellers and buyers in the negotiation of asset purchase and stock purchase transactions, including retail, manufacturing and service businesses.
Our attorneys have significant experience with union and labor issues, complex regulatory matters, intellectual property issues, environmental matters and immigration. We have a large and well-established employment law group. Our clients include large, established corporations, utilities, not-for-profit entities and start-ups.
Our attorneys are accustomed to the highly regulated nature of financial institutions and are well-versed on regulatory matters, including Uniform Commercial Code, creditors’ rights, foreclosures and consumer law compliance. We regularly assist our clients during litigation, including workouts of troubled loans.
We work with an array of financial institutions, including large national banks, statewide banks, savings and loans, holding companies and affiliated entities. We can assist with commercial transactions, real estate matters and regulatory issues.
Our attorneys can provide assistance with negotiation and preparation of loan documents, real estate and title issues, and development of standard lending forms and credit policies. We defend claims made against banks, assist with governance issues and provide counsel to boards of directors.
To recover as much as possible, companies who are owed funds by a bankrupt creditor must work quickly and follow the rules of federal bankruptcy court. We can aid creditors in the recovery of assets by filing the proper paperwork, on time, and ensuring that the necessary follow-up is handled in a timely manner. We represent creditors, including banks, businesses and individuals, in bankruptcies, foreclosures and workouts of individual and commercial debtors.
