ADDITIONAL BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS SERVICES
CUSTOMER, CONSULTING, EMPLOYEE & INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR CONTRACTS
Having represented clients on both sides of the table (as counsel to both the customer, consulting, employee or independent contractor, and as counsel to the corporation, partnership, limited liability company or sole proprietor seeking a contract with a customer, consulting, employee or independent contractor), we have plenty of experience in advising what is best for our clients, and can help the them satisfy both their business and tax concerns.
TRADE SECRET & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AGREEMENTS
In today’s high-tech environment, it is critical for a corporation, partnership or limited liability company to protect and preserve their trade secrets and intellectual property. We have the experience and expertise necessary to ensure that your business is prepared to deal with these issues, and that your trade secrets and intellectual property are fully protected despite the changing business landscape.
BUY-SELL & NON-COMPETITION AGREEMENTS
An often overlooked issue when putting a business entity corporation, partnership, limited liability company or limited liability partnership together is how to separate a shareholder, partner, limited liability company member or limited liability partner when that is appropriate.
Again, having represented clients on both sides of the table, we can see what is best for the client and how to get what the client wants to satisfy both their business and tax concerns.
We can help you negotiate in one of two ways:
- During the buy-sell or non-competition agreement “up-front” on the formation end
- When it’s time for the parties to go their separate ways
Moreover, we can achieve this with minimal adverse impact on either the heirs and assigns of a deceased shareholder, partner, limited liability company member or limited liability partner, or the corporation, partnership, limited liability company or limited liability partnership which might be losing a “key-man,” “key-woman” of other key employee.
