Legal counsel to business
We focus our practice on assisting businesses and business people to achieve their objectives. We do this by helping them identify and avoid problems, by structuring advantageous commercial transactions and by resolving unavoidable disputes quickly and favorably.
There are a number of ways in which our firms concentration on business issues, extensive experience and creative problem solving benefit our clients.
Although we have assisted companies of nearly all types and sizes for more than six decades, we have developed an in-depth understanding of the special needs of closely held businesses and their owners. Directly and through referrals from accountants, financial planners, attorneys and other professionals, we are often called upon to resolve complex and difficult matters, particularly those related to family businesses.
We often provide local representation for inhouse and outside general counsel and we are representing a growing numbe r for foreign clients doing business in the United States.
Our firm has earned a reputation for being especially skilled at bringing about creative and mutually satisfactory negotiated solutions to complicated and emotionally charged disputes, including those involving probate court litigation.. We are know for thoroughly understanding each clients business and personal circumstances so that we can provide precisely the right advice and representation. Our services encompass corporate and employment law,estate planning and taxation. Four of our attorneys have advanced degrees in taxation form New York University Law School and we are often involved in tax court litigation.
By focusing our practice on the legal needs of privately held companies and the individuals and families who run them,we have become thoroughly familiar with the various special concerns they face in building and managing their businesses - and the family dynamics that are often involved. For clients without inhouse counsel,we often fulfill that role on an as-needed basis.
We have the experience to recognize when additional expertise is needed and in those cases work closely with other attorneys,consultants and specialists to achieve the desired outcome.
Because of our breadth and depth of experience,clients often involve us in helping them to define their goals and develop strategies and processes to achieve them.
If you have concerns in the areas of corporate and employment law,estate planning or taxation,we would be pleased to discuss them with you.
