The day-to-day operation of any business often involves a number of small or necessary transactions which form the lifeblood of the business. Whether it’s the acquisition of materials, the retention of customers, the sale of products or services, the securing of rights or the development or licensing of intellectual property, creative businessmen need creative lawyers. We don’t just look for a “form,” we work with clients to understand the unique, or in some cases not so unique, aspects of each commercial transaction, and work to customize a cost-effective solution that works for them. In some cases, the solution may be developing a system, procedure and related forms to document recurring transactions quickly and professionally each time. In other cases, it is ensuring that the unique nature of a transaction isn’t missed purely for the sake of fitting into someone else’s ready-made form.
Our attorneys have a broad background in transactional agreements, legal compliance and risk management in connection with day-to-day business operations and dispute resolution. Often, their threshold responsibility is to identify legal issues, after which they coordinate the assistance of the relevant personnel from the client, together with experts inside and outside of the firm, as necessary to reach appropriate resolution.
