We leverage our diversity to provide excellent advice and forceful representation in a broad range of business sectors and practice areas.
The diversity of our attorneys, paraprofessionals and staff reflects both the firm's domestic commitments and its international capabilities.
If you are a Next Economy company, we are interested in helping you manage and grow your business. The difference we can make in the first year or two of a company's life sets the tone for decades of later success. As a result, our practice involves the representation of companies at virtually every stage of development and is focused on the full range of services that will help a business grow.
As you grow, we provide the breadth and depth of legal resources needed. Everything from structuring your business to achieve minimum tax consequences to hiring and retaining your employees and executives to putting together creative deals to finance your real estate expansion growth. Attorneys from all ALG practice areas, including labor and employment, securities litigation, intellectual property, complex litigation, executive compensation and taxation, work closely together to ensure that clients have single source access to answers to pressing legal and business issues.
If you're starting a new venture, you will have to grapple with a basic question before getting to the fun of VC financing, strategic partnerships or an IPO: Is the business going to be organized as a partnership, limited liability company (LLC) or corporation, and under which state's laws should it be organized?
Our representation of fast-growth companies gives us a unique understanding of the legal and tax issues facing venture financed and publicly traded technology companies. Based on your long- and short-term business goals, we can help you determine how best to structure your company's organization, and then help you put together all of the corporate paperwork to make sure you are in compliance with state and federal laws.
As your business grows, we will structure plans and transactions to achieve the best possible tax result for you. We take into account issues such as stock option/stock issuance plans, other executive compensation issues, employee benefits, mergers or other acquisitions, off-balance sheet financing (synthetic leases), joint-ventures, strategic alliances, recapitalizations, debt or equity issuances, state tax planning, spin-offs and other transactions common to start-up and emerging growth companies.
