  • Confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements

We can negotiate, draft, and review documentation relating to commercial acquisitions or sales.

We also assist and counsel clients at least termination, particularly where a commercial tenant has environmental and ISRA compliance obligations.

Procedural Compliance in the Manufacturing Sector

The best way to avoid problems is to anticipate them before they happen. Manufacturing businesses are subject to a wide range of state and federal regulations, including those determined and enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). A failure to comply with these regulations can both reduce employee confidence and result in significant financial and legal consequences for your business. Broader financial transactions are also subject to state and federal financial rules, the violation of which can put your business in jeopardy with the government.

Our legal team can perform a review of your company’s day-to-day and transactional practices to ensure all aspects of your operation are compliant. We can also provide counsel on evolving regulations so you can anticipate and have time to prepare for any adjustments that might impact your business.
