Your Needs – Front and Center
The needs of middle market businesses are constantly evolving. We can help address the complicated legal issues growing and established businesses face.
Establishing and Reorganizing your Business Structure
How you set up your business’ legal infrastructure now has a long-term impact on the value of your business and your exposure to litigation risk. Richards Rodriguez & Skeith’s business lawyers can help you get it right.
Protecting Your Innovations
Your ideas are some of the most valuable assets of your business. We can help you protect them using the tools of non-compete and nondisclosure agreements, patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
Your business deals determine the success or failure of your business. Let Richards Rodriguez & Skeith help you make sure that your agreements with your customers, vendors, and contractors are clear and enforceable so that you can avoid any misunderstandings or costly disputes.
Without financial backing, even the best business ideas never get off the ground. Richards Rodriguez & Skeith lawyers have helped all kinds of businesses raise investor money the right way.
Preparing for the Sale or Transition of Your Business
For almost all founders, most of their own personal wealth is invested in their businesses. We help maximize the ultimate sale or transition value of businesses by discovering and fixing problems before they are discovered by a potential buyer.
Resolving Partner and Investor Disputes
Partner and investor disputes are expensive and distract the business from its core objectives. The attorneys of Richards Rodriguez & Skeith help resolve partner and investor disputes through counseling, negotiation, and as a last resort, litigation.
Acquiring Businesses and Assets
In addition to organic growth, businesses can increase in value through the strategic acquisition of complementary businesses or certain key assets. Our lawyers can help you make sure that you know what you are buying and avoid costly surprises.
Managing Employment Issues
Employees are both a business’ most valuable resource and the area of the business most difficult to manage. Our employment lawyers help business to remain compliant with complicated employment laws and regulations, to avoid and defend litigation brought by employees, and to design incentive plans to retain executives and other key personnel.
We believe that litigation is a last resort, but when the chips are down, our seasoned and practical litigation team can help you achieve a business win, whether inside the courtroom or at the mediation table.
