Areas of Practice

Corporate Formation & Structure

Choice of legal entity and jurisdiction are critical for any business.  As the business grows, the type of entity many need to change, as well as registration and expansion into new markets, both in the US and abroad.  In addition, corporate structures should drive maximum tax, equity and risk benefits if possible, especially if investors are involved.

Commercial & Business Agreements

Afissio Law clients enter into a wide variety of commercial and business agreements, including with landlords, strategic partners, customers, vendors, suppliers and government entities.  Each of these agreements should be strategically drafted and properly timed for optimal effect.

Customer Terms of Use & Privacy Policies

Many Afissio Law clients offer services or products to the public.  Customers must be clear on what they are getting, how they can use the client’s platform, if that’s part of the offering, and the relevant privacy policies that keep their personal information secure.

Intellectual Property

Most Afissio Law clients have valuable intellectual property, at minimum in the form of trade names and trade secrets.  Many also hold copyrights and patents.  Protection from infringement can be critical for the continued profitability of the venture.

Commercial & Employment Mediation & Dispute Resolution

Always an available tool, litigation is sometimes required to achieve a client’s business goals. However, there are often many opportunities to resolve disputes before an actual lawsuit is filed. Whether in informal negotiations or more structured mediation sessions, dispute resolution should be explored fully before rolling the litigation dice.

Government Investigations & Administrative Claims

There are a number of ways a client may be involved with government entities, including issues related to taxes, safety, wages, civil rights, whistle blowers or professional credentialing.  These issues should be approached strategically and pragmatically to avoid costly investigations and administrative claims that may turn into litigation later.

Liability & Risk

Any issue being studied by Afissio Law will necessarily involve an assessment of legal risk.  We approach the business holistically, looking at all its parts to make sure we understand the implications of any solution.  Often the most effective solutions are the simplest and most elegant.
