New Businesses

We frequently guide entrepreneurs in creating and managing appropriate business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, Subchapter S corporations and not-for-profit corporations. New enterprises often need to carefully establish rules regarding corporate governance, voting, equity transfers, profit-and-loss allocation, and dispute resolutions.

We help startups create customized agreements among current and future equity holders, as well as helping create employment, consulting and intellectual property agreements and incentive plans. Our lawyers also draw upon their experience to provide practical legal and business advice to help clients address the ever-changing demands of a growing business.

It is not uncommon for a corporate matter to require the resources of our tax, bankruptcy, litigation and real estate lawyers. We coordinate all our resources with a single point of contact so we can seamlessly deliver thoughtful and practical solutions. Here are some examples:

  • Our corporate and real estate attorneys closely collaborated on the purchase of a Miami office tower by a Japanese client that was structured as the sale of equity interests in a holding company.
  • When our client, a U.S. public company, entered into litigation with a group of investors, our corporate lawyers negotiated a complex court-approved settlement involving debt and equity securities, while our litigators simultaneously advanced the litigation process.
  • We assisted a UK-based hedge fund in collecting amounts due under a secured loan agreement in a dispute involving multiple U.S. and offshore holding companies, banks, collateral agents and other hedge funds. Our corporate and litigation lawyers achieved a successful result by devising a multi-country strategy involving coordinated corporate and court actions in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and New York.
