We advise clients in forming business entities and assist them in defining the rights and relationships of owners and stockholders. For companies in other stages of the business life cycle, our group develops and implements exit strategies and handles succession planning matters (particularly for closely held or privately held entities).

We are experienced in negotiating, drafting and reviewing agreements of all types, including employment, distribution, manufacturing, licensing, outsourcing and other agreements. Our lawyers regularly advise on technology licensing, transfer and collaboration arrangements for information, life sciences and other technologies.
