Corporate Legal Transactions

General Corporate Matters

Many of our clients retain us to act as their “outsourced in-house counsel.” This arrangement has three principal benefits: (i) We develop an in-depth familiarity with your business culture and legal needs; (ii) We maintain a long-term relationship, which facilitates efficiency of service (with no additional employee headcount); and (iii) We become an integral part of your management team. The specific general corporate services we provide include:

  • Startup Counseling
  • Formation of Corporations, LLC’s and other entities, and preparation of related documentation
  • Founders’ Agreements, Operating Agreements and Limited Partnership Agreements
  • IP Agreements, including Licensing Agreements, Confidentiality and Inventions Assignment Agreements, and Terms of Service/use and Privacy Policy
  • Employment and Consulting Agreements
  • Stock Option Plans and Agreements
  • Commercial Contracts, including Services Agreements, Partnering Agreements, Vendor/Supplier Agreements and Reseller Agreements
  • Structuring of Equity Ownership, including Vesting Issues
  • Corporate Governance, including Board of Director Matters and Stockholders’/Voting Agreements
