Commercial and Business Transactions
A successful business depends on establishing and maintaining a strong legal framework to promote effective operations and long-term growth. We provide expert and on-going advice on important commercial issues such as business formation, liability protection, contract formation and enforcement, human resource development and dispute resolution. We represent for-profit and not-for-profit business clients both before regulatory bodies and in the courtroom, as necessary. JLGI represents clients who want to organize, manage, transfer or exit a business. We assist our clients in choosing which business form may best meet their needs, such as a limited liability company (LLC), partnership or corporation. JLGI attorneys work with our clients to minimize personal and corporate liability exposure and other considerations that are advantageous for them. JLGI works with for-profit and non-profit clients to decide management and operations issues, ownership transfers, profit and loss distributions, and negotiate the intricacies of government contracting. On behalf of our clients, we have prepared a wide range of important business legal instruments, including operating agreements and bylaws, purchase and sale agreements, teaming agreements, subcontracts, non-disclosure and non-compete agreements, stock or asset acquisition agreements, and many others. JLGI offers practical solutions to our business clients and because our attorneys have operated their own for-profit and non-profit businesses, we are keenly aware of the considerations and challenges facing both small and large business owners. Regardless of client size or transaction, we provide affordable, customized, and sophisticated legal services.
