Our Business Practice Group assists clients in the entire range of business activities, from formation and governance through business transfer and dissolution. For startups, we advise on appropriate entity selection and domicile (California or elsewhere) and help to resolve and document issues and agreements among owners. For all businesses, we counsel on appropriate procedures for raising capital, dealing with employees, compliance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements, preservation of intellectual property rights, and entering into and carrying out most ordinary commercial transactions. We represent financial institutions and advise them in all aspects of regulatory compliance. We specialize in franchising and in business bankruptcy and restructuring, and in the transfer of business interests to family members, other owners and third parties.
