PRACTICE

AREAS

COMMERCIAL CONTRACTS AND TRANSACTIONAL DOCUMENTS

Businesses routinely encounter a variety of contracts. Johnsen Law can review and revise or create custom drafts of these contracts, depending on your needs. Among other contracts and transactional documents, Johnsen Law works on NDAs (non-disclosure agreements); terms and conditions of purchase or sale; master services agreements; long term supply agreements; letters of intent; letter agreements; distributor or sales representative agreements; commercial leases; equipment rental agreements; and advertising agreements.

 

CORPORATE FORMATION AND GOVERNING DOCUMENTS

Deciding on a business structure can be daunting. Johnsen Law can guide you through this process, structure your new company, and prepare the governing documents, whether they be bylaws, a partnership agreement, or an operating agreement.

 

TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS

A business’s intellectual property is oftentimes its most valuable asset. Johnsen Law can register your trademarks and advise on copyrights and other intellectual property matters.

 

COMPLIANCE

A number of laws and regulations govern businesses. Johnsen Law can help you navigate these laws and regulations and ensure compliance.

 

EMPLOYMENT

Managing employees should be done proactively with clear expectations. Johnsen Law can assist you with spelling out these expectations. Among other things, Johnsen Law works on policies, procedures, handbooks, and employment agreements.

 

REAL ESTATE

Leasing, buying, or selling real estate is a major business decision with legal implications. Johnsen Law can work on your leases and other real estate agreements.

 

PRE-LITIGATION

Disputes can frequently be resolved before a lawsuit is even filed. Not only does Johnsen Law understand the risks and rewards of litigation, but it strives to think outside the box and craft commonsense business solutions.

 

E-DISCOVERY

With the advent of big data, e-discovery (electronic discovery) has become front and center in modern  litigation. Businesses are required to preserve and produce certain data, and the failure to do so can have adverse consequences. Johnsen Law can assist you in complying with your obligations under the law.

 

APPEALS

Even after a case is won or lost, it is not necessarily over. A losing party may have one or more opportunities to appeal the trial court’s decision. Moreover, certain appeals may be brought while the case is still pending in the trial court. Oftentimes it makes sense to have a new set of eyes and an outside perspective assist with the appeal. Johnsen Law can fill this role.

 

OUTSIDE GENERAL COUNSEL

Some businesses require ongoing legal work yet do not wish to retain in-house general counsel. It may be too expensive to do so, or there may be other reasons. Johnsen Law has the breadth and depth of experience necessary to serve as your outside general counsel and it offers packages designed to maximize value to its clients.
