Forum Law has valuable business experience as in-house counsel, and works with their business clients as business advisors, not legal technicians. Forum Law takes a business-focused, practical approach to all areas of corporate law, answering client’s questions, providing their clients with proactive risk management and avoiding costly bigger legal issues. This includes:
- Regular updates on changes in case law, statutes, and other legal obligations that affect businesses;
Review of existing contracts and discussion of strengths and weaknesses, and creating a library of form business and employment agreements tailored to the business’ specific needs or industry, ensuring more predictable outcomes and minimizing litigation risk;
Negotiation of contracts with vendors and clients, commercial leases, manufacturing and distribution agreements, and licensing agreements, including educating businesses with an understanding of their rights and obligations under the contracts and providing an understanding of which terms in a “boilerplate” contract can and should be negotiated;
Collection of debts from clients and settlement of disputes with clients, vendors, employees and others; and
Review of intellectual property issues and practices, making sure the business is protecting its assets, and not infringing on third party rights.
