Representing Businesses

Private and Public Corporations, LLCs, Partnerships and Other Business Entities

Private and public companies alike frequently miss out because their attorneys do not offer good business advice. Most corporate executives know that smart business decisions require much more than simply understanding the law.

Law Offices of Jotham S. Stein P.C. attorneys offer business advice and business counseling to their corporate clients. Firm attorneys have negotiated (and counseled business clients during the negotiation of) a wide variety of contracts, including technology licensing deals, merger agreements and professional service contracts. The “other side” of those negotiations have included small closely held companies all the way up to Fortune 100 corporations. Mr. Stein, firm principal, has also served as a part-time General Counsel of a high-technology Silicon Valley company.

Private and newly public companies frequently run into difficulties with other corporations, sometimes with industry juggernauts. The conflicts are not always even-handed. Large corporations can wield their power over smaller companies in abusive ways. For example, a big company may decide not to pay on an important contract, knowing full well the smaller company will have difficulty dealing with the resulting cash flow problems.

Business conflicts can cause real risk to a company and force executives to spend valuable time on litigation, rather than focusing on running the business. In situations where a company runs into trouble with another corporation, attorneys from the Law Offices of Jotham S. Stein P.C. may work directly with the owner, founder, chief executive officer, general counsel or other business decision-maker to develop a negotiation and/or litigation strategy that meets the business’ needs. If negotiation is the best approach, firm attorneys may negotiate directly or advise the corporate decision-maker during negotiations. If litigation is required, the Law Offices of Jotham S. Stein P.C. strives to litigate in a way that keeps the company’s decision-makers fully involved and informed, yet free to spend their time building the business. Over the years, the Law Offices of Jotham S. Stein P.C. has represented many companies in a wide variety of disputes in state and federal court in aribitration and in multidistrict litigation.
