Business Advice & Commercial Transactions

Increasingly, clients seek out Clinton Brook & Peed for a wide range of legal advice in business and transactional matters. For many clients, we serve a function similar to that of a general counsel–we provide ongoing advice on a range of matters, handle a broad range of structural and transactional matters as they arise, and manage outside legal costs when specialized expertise is required.

The firm’s philosophical approach to business transactions is to emphasize the following three factors: (1) achieving favorable business terms for clients in light of the overall business strategy; (2) creating incentives, not just legal remedies, to promote compliance with the agreement’s terms; and (3) anticipating and preempting the things that could go wrong.

Applying these three fundamental principles, the firm has advised a number of clients on some of their most important transactions, including business entity formation, trademark applications, joint venture and licensing agreements, key employee contracts and other major transactions. We also advise on other important ongoing issues, like equal employment opportunity policies, fiduciary obligations to investors and shareholders, regulatory compliance issues, and contract template review. In addition, the firm has developed a specialized practice before D.C.’s Alcohol Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA), assisting local businesses with regard to obtaining and maintaining liquor licenses.
