Entity Formations & Maintenance

Be it a corporation, benefit corporation, LLC, LP, partnership, limited partnership, or L3C, we evaluate your business’ status and goals to determine the most advantageous legal structure for each organization at a competitive flat fee rate.

Raising Capital

We help startups with obtaining commercial loans and structuring seed capital offerings. As a business grows, we advise on private equity offerings to raise capital using our dynamic network of investor contacts and equity groups. For clients needing substantial capital, we negotiate and close VC investments. For more established organizations, we manage complex commercial loans, including working capital lines of credit, term loans and leveraged buy-outs. See recent transactions.

Intellectual Property Protection

IP protection is like insurance – you often don’t realize you need it until it’s too late! It is critical to identify and protect IP as well as recognize when your actions might infringe on the rights of others. We help you protect more than inventions, copyrights and trademarks; from confidential strategies for next year’s new product launch to trade secret protection, we act as a safeguard at every point of your business’ growth and diversification.

Buying, Selling & Liquidating

We represent a diverse group of clients in our M&A practice, including public and private companies, as well as leveraged buy-out funds. Our expertise extends over a broad array of transactions, including mergers, asset and stock acquisitions as well as tender offers, spin-offs, joint ventures and other strategic alliances.
