For a Corporation or LLC, important business decisions may require approval from the Board of Directors, Shareholders, Managers, or Members. We can review your corporate charter and draft any resolutions required to take authorized action on behalf of your business.
A well-drafted contract can help ensure your business achieves its expected goals and avoid future legal issues by providing adequate protections. We can assist you with drafting, negotiating, and reviewing a variety of commercial contracts.
A trademark is a word, name, symbol, or device used to identify and distinguish goods or services. It indicates the source of your product and therefore, it is one of the most valuable assets to your business. In today’s rapidly changing environment, the logos, packaging, and other identifying features of your business need to be protected to maintain ownership of how you differentiate your business from others. We offer a range of trademark services to entrepreneurs and established businesses to ensure that your trademark is adequately protected.
A copyright is a form of legal protection that grants creators of literary art such as books, songs, videos, and webpage content exclusive rights for the use and distribution of their work. Although copyright is secured automatically when a work is created and fixed in a tangible form, all works of U.S. origin must be registered before an infringement suit can be filed in court. Securing and protecting your copyright is an important way to ensure that as the owner of a work of art, no other artist can use your work for financial gain without your permission.
Corruption is a common business risk, especially for companies operating abroad. U.S. businesses and foreign companies who trade on a U.S. stock exchange are subject to compliance obligations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). FCPA enforcement has increased substantially in recent years, causing it to be a hot-button topic for any company that operates with any third-party agents abroad.
We can help your business develop a full FCPA compliance program focused on risk assessment, corporate policy, internal compliance procedures, due diligence procedures for new relationships, internal training, and disciplinary and reporting standards.
