Company Formation, Counseling and Governance


The Business Group advises entrepreneurs  with regard to entity selection, entity formation and initial capitalization, tax planning, and agreements among founders. We work closely with Sideman & Bancroft’s tax attorneys to provide innovative and practical solutions to an array of complex tax and structuring demands. With assistance from our Intellectual Property Group, we provide guidance on protecting and licensing technology, building and protecting brands, trade secret policies, and registration of copyrights and trademarks.

For more mature companies, we also assist in addressing a broad range of business planning issues such as the analysis and implementation of acquisitions, joint ventures and other strategic alliances. We help structure the admission of additional equity owners, exit strategies, owner buyouts, and succession plans.
