Many of our clients see their Tonkon Torp business lawyer as an outside business partner. We've built relationships that have endured for decades, acting as an outside general counsel, strategic business advisor, and one-stop legal resource. Our 40 years of experience with clients of all sizes and in a variety of industries means you receive informed judgment on day-to-day problems, foresight on potential areas of conflict, and strategies for preventing litigation.

To us, the fundamental measure of a good client relationship is how little you worry about legal matters and how much you can focus on taking your business to the next level. For large public and private clients, as well as small private and closely-held family companies, our business lawyers act as a primary contact, handling day-to-day legal matters and referring clients to other Tonkon Torp lawyers with skills in particular disciplines as needed.

Our general business lawyers give advice on a variety of issues including:
  • Corporate ownership, control and management issues such as entity formation, tax planning, and executive compensation.
  • Negotiation and documentation of private and public capital solutions for start-up, ongoing operations and business expansion.
  • Agreements governing relationships in production, supply, marketing and distribution.
  • Development of internal company policies covering employment matters.
  • Development of regulatory compliance strategies for tax audits, antitrust and trade regulation, and intellectual property.
  • Real estate matters such as acquisitions, land use approvals and compliance, environmental clean-up, and leasing of office, warehousing, manufacturing and sales facilities.
