Benefits of an Outside General Counsel Relationship

When you work consistently with the same attorney, you'll find you don't need to reintroduce your company's objectives to your legal team each time a new problem arises. Our attorneys already know you, the intricacies of your business, your immediate and long-range business goals, and the distinctive legal and practical problems your company encounters on a regular basis. We advise and represent closely held businesses on the full range of legal issues practically any company is likely to encounter, including:
  • Business startup, entity selection, formation and registration
  • Negotiation, review, and revision of basic organizational documents, bylaws, operating agreements, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements or buy-sell agreements
  • Contract documentation and litigation regarding customer or vendor relationships and other essential business operations
  • Real estate transactions from office or commercial leasing to land development and construction contracting
  • Employment law advice and litigation defense
  • Drafting nondisclosure agreements and confidentiality agreements
  • Business management succession planning
