Business Law

Whether you are a small or medium-sized business or an entrepreneur, your livelihood is dependent upon the success of your business, and the success of your business is dependent upon careful planning and thoughtful decision-making. Hiring a knowledgeable attorney to help you establish your new company or advise you on the day-to-day operations of an existing company can be critical.

When you form a new business, choosing the right operating entity is very important. Each entity, whether it be a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), general partnership, limited partnership or sole proprietorship, carries with it specific protections against liability, corporate obligations and tax implications. Mr. Bernstein can advise you through the business formation process, complete all of the necessary documents and obtain all of the necessary licenses and permits.

Mr. Bernstein can also act as your in-house lawyer, assisting with contract negotiation and drafting; with license agreements, product development agreements, joint venture agreements and other agreements; preparing applications for trademarks and copyrights; obtaining Internet domain names; advising on management responsibilities and liabilities; and advising on antitrust issues.

If and when disputes arise, whether it be with vendors, competitors or investors, Mr. Bernstein has the expertise and experience to litigate those disputes, including for breach of contract; breach of fiduciary duties; patent, trademark and copyright infringement; defamation; and other issues that arise in the normal course of business.
