From business formation and financing to intellectual property protection and mergers and acquisitions, our attorneys provide sound, cost-effective legal solutions to our clients.

We understand your business and legal needs and are dedicated to helping you grow and succeed.

We regularly engage in providing strategic advice to emerging companies and their funding teams at the earliest stage of development and beyond. We assist clients in the selection of appropriate, tax-efficient structures for business. We have extensive experience in forming corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, strategic alliances, and joint ventures. We plan and implement a full range of business and financial transactions for our growth-oriented clients.

We are actively involved in a broad range of capital funding activities for emerging businesses from seed to later stage financings. We have structured hundreds of debt and equity capital transactions for both private and public companies. As a result of our experience and contacts, we are able to advise clients about various financing alternatives and introduce them to potential financing sources across the country.

Mergers and Acquisitions
With expansion, business leaders often develop an interest in acquiring other entities or in selling their own enterprise. We have experience in the acquisition and disposition of companies and their assets, including the negotiation of tax-free mergers as well as financing and security arrangements. We have represented buyers, sellers and financial institutions in mergers, acquisitions, and leveraged buyout transactions.

Intellectual Property
Companies must aggressively protect key intellectual property to thrive. We have registered patent attorneys with experience in the four major technical disciplines of patent law: electrical, chemical, mechanical, and life sciences. We also have attorneys experienced in trademark, copyright, and trade secret matters.

We advise clients on a wide variety of sophisticated federal, state, local, and international tax matters including entity selection and formation, operational tax matters, business acquisitions and dispositions, corporate reorganizations and liquidations, and partnership taxation.
