Mr. Schwartz is a respected member of the business law community, lecturing before his legal peers and the public. He has experience not only helping start-ups and entrepreneurs form their businesses, but also in handling the many varieties of complex and high-stakes litigation these entities may face after they have been in business for some time. When it's time to close a business, he can make sure the dissolution, bankruptcy, sale or other closure is done correctly.
Many large law firms require their clients to go to different attorneys in multiple departments for their transactional and litigation needs. This can lead to conflicting advice and extra costs in the form of internal communications and memos. As a small, knowledgeable firm we make consultations easier for our clients, offering them transactional advice that seeks to avoid litigation down the road, and litigation representation that takes into account their long-term business objectives. We can offer solid strategies to address not only your immediate concerns, but also to protect the health of your business over time.
Serving Businesses & Individuals in the East Bay
If you are an East Bay business owner or individual with business needs, you are probably looking for experience, diligence, and stellar service. Unlike many large firms, we provide our clients with personal attention, never delaying or failing to return a call, or foisting work on an inexperienced associate for the purpose of "training." We provide legal representation in areas including:
- Business and commercial law
- Business litigation
- Intellectual property
- Construction law and construction litigation
- Real estate contracts, transactions, and litigation
- Civil litigation
- Wills and estates
- Business bankruptcy and personal bankruptcy
- Tax law
Many real-life business situations incorporate more than one of these practice areas. We are equipped to help you navigate multiple areas of law to protect your business. Moreover, we understand that business owners want the money they spend on legal services to be cost-effective. Due to our experience and skill, we are able to deliver contracts and other transactional documents on time and at competitive rates. We investigate and plan meticulously to avoid litigation wherever possible.
A key aspect of avoiding litigation is setting up transactions and deals carefully to ensure that terms are transparent, and to increase the likelihood that a business relationship goes smoothly. However, not all disputes can be resolved amicably or prevented. When necessary, we aggressively advocate for our clients' rights and interests in all settings, including in mediation, at trial, and during the appellate process. We always we keep you informed as to what is happening with your legal matter, and take into account the hard work you have put into your business.
