We work with early stage companies from their initial start in the "garage" and founding teams as small as two individuals to mid-size family-held businesses in all areas of their formation, including: advice on choice of entity, capital structuring, stock option planning, documentation and maintenance; drafting and adopting bylaws; board formation matters, and confidentiality agreements; and establishing processes and policies for protecting clients’ intellectual property, along with counseling on various aspects of transfer of business licensing and exit strategies.
Our lawyers have handled all aspects of litigation in courtrooms in a broad range of matters, from the routine to the complex. Our approach to resolving such disputes combines strong trial court experience with substantial Alternative Dispute Resolution (mediation, arbitration etc.) skills. We recognize that litigation is now always necessary. When litigation is inevitable, however, our Business Lawyers are well prepared to represent clients efficiently, but aggressively.
Partnership Disputes are the core of our firm's practice. Our Business Lawyers help businesses throughout Virginia and DC in resolving their most complex, high-stakes business and commercial disputes. Our Business Lawyers have substantial experience handling disputes involving disputes between and among LLC members/managers, LP general and limited partners, and both majority and minority corporate shareholders. Please review our Notable Cases section for more information on our past cases.
