Business Law

Companies thrive thanks to hard work and vision. We provide value to company owners by giving honest legal advice that protects the company, shareholders, and their personal assets.

Small Business

A skilled small business attorney can help a small business avoid issues that can severely impair the financial stability of the company. These issues include employment, intellectual property, compliance, tax, securities, and more. Attorneys who have served as in-house general counsel are forced to address all of these different areas of the law, thus making them adept in representing a small business like yours.

Through my work as in-house counsel at a Los Angeles television network, I gained a wide breadth of legal experience. When I opened my practice, I was able to call on this experience to advise business owners and managers. I know where I am strong — representing smaller companies. That is why I exclusively represent independently owned businesses.

The role of a corporate attorney is to help negotiate and ensure the legality of commercial transactions, advising individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and other entities on their legal rights and duties, including the duties and responsibilities of the corporate officers. From determining and advising on the initial set up and organization of a legal entity, to reviewing a lease, to licensing a trademark, to mergers and acquisitions.

For shareholders, establishing a written set of rules is essential. Owners of a new company must agree how to distribute assets and liabilities. A Shareholder Agreement will serve the owners of the company for years to come. A clear agreement can prevent infighting and litigation.

Finally, it is important to consider exit strategies from the start. What will happen in case of the disability, death, divorce, or bankruptcy of a partner? A Buy-Sell Agreement should document how to deal with adversity before the need arises. Our clients can assure their business legacy and their families’ welfare with our unique business successions plan.

Contracts are the “rules of the road” for all business relations. Properly assigning responsibilities can save time and money by preventing future disputes.

What should you look for in an attorney that will draft/review/negotiate your contract? A broad range of experience.

1. An attorney with negotiation experience will do good job as your advocate.

2. An attorney with contract drafting experience will be sure to include contractual terms that you never considered.

3. An attorney with business litigation experience can advise you about what happens in the event of a contract breach.

4. A commercial collections attorney will explain what can be done to get a debtor to actually pay what is owed.

Through my experience as in-house counsel and later as litigation associate, I spent time learning and practicing all of the disciplines above. I draw from my broad experience to draft, review and negotiate business contracts. I prepare specialized documents for your company rather than one-size-fits-all templates.

Business transactions move quickly. That is why I use state of the art technology to communicate securely and deliver work-product without administrative delays common at law firms.

Asset Protection

Individuals and business entities use asset protection techniques to limit creditors’ access to certain valuable assets while operating within the bounds of debtor-creditor law. Small businesses are reluctant to engage in asset protection until it is too late, which is usually after they have been served with a lawsuit. The reluctance is usually related to cost. But while finding a good small business attorney to assist with asset protection at a reasonable cost may be challenging, the outcome can be a significant value-add to your business. A knowledgeable and skilled small business attorney can help protect you from issues that can severely impair your financial stability. These issues include creditors, employment matters, intellectual property issues, and others.
