We counsel you in structuring and closing any business loan transactions.

When representing either party in the selling transaction, we will prepare the documents required to effectuate the conveyance and assure the proper filing and recording of those documents.
Commercial Leasing
For a variety of reasons, many business owners elect to lease space in which to operate their business instead of purchasing a building. In addition, many people invest in commercial real estate and buildings and lease space to others. Our attorneys are experienced in drafting and negotiating commercial leases for both landlords and tenants. If questions or issues arise after a lease has been signed, we can help analyze the facts and render an opinion, as well as negotiate a resolution.
Work-Out/Debt Restructuring
Sometimes, despite the best efforts of a business owner, a business may run into cash flow or other financial problems. In those situations, our firm works closely with the owner and his or her accountant, or a financial consultant to assess the problem and solutions that are available.

We assist in the design of work-out plans and exit strategies. We negotiate with lenders, trade vendors, and other creditors to obtain short term and long term cash flow relief to help the business get back on track. We also counsel on how to protect personal interests during this difficult period.
Commercial Litigation
Complex commercial litigation often requires broad knowledge of the workings and inter-workings of the American judicial system. Our lawyers are always aware of the parallel ramifications of work they take on–whether the dispute involves corporate fraud and abuse, a business dissolution, contractual dispute, or trademark issues.
