The Business Law practice at Yourkvitch & Dibo serves a wide range of business’ legal needs.
Creation of Business
We have helped clients with their choice of business entity and tax entity decisions, then continued to the creation of appropriate governance documents, whether for an LLC, a corporation, or a not-for-profit.
We have also moved entrepreneurs through the financing cycle, from pre-seed and seed financing to A, B, C and Mezzanine rounds.
We’ve also counseled businesses on LLC Membership, Partnership, and Shareholder issues.
Operation of Business
Many of our Clients come to us seeking counsel on Employment issues, including employment policies, employee manuals, and hiring practices. We have also created Non-Disclosure Agreements and Non-Compete Agreements, where needed.
Startups and established businesses alike benefit from our review of business operations. We can advise on compliance with regulatory matters, consumer laws, and contract language.
Clients purchasing or selling a business, or buying or selling major business assets, can benefit from our experience. We review sale documents, financing packages, and can manage the process.
Yourkvitch & Dibo’s Civil Litigation team can assist with business disputes that may arise.
Early understanding of the issues can speed negotiations and settlement. Often, your attorneys at Yourkvitch & Dibo will be able to clarify and quantify the value of a dispute, which makes your position more clear to the other side. But if a resolution of the issues requires the intervention of the Courts, we’re ready.
Every business should, at the beginning, have a plan for the end. Whether it is an equity- moment exit, a retirement and succession plan, the unexpected loss of a central team member, or an intra-ownership dispute, we can help. Planning for the long-term is not a luxury. We can help you consider the long-range game plan of your business, integrate it with your own Estate Planning, and leave you well-prepared for the future.
General Counsel Services
Some businesses retain Yourkvitch & Dibo as outside General Counsel. This is an especially valuable relationship that keeps a firm better-integrated with its legal counsel. We act as your legal department, making ourselves available so that you can seek our advice early and often. We want you to call with that small, simple question … because sometimes, not asking can lead to serious consequences for your business.
