The Law Offices of Phil Sudan advises clients on a wide range of commercial and financial transactions with a significant emphasis on business, corporate finance and tax matters. We are actively involved in providing solutions to clients’ legal needs. The types of solutions and their application are as varied as the clients which we are serving and their needs. For example, to purchase or sell a business combines corporate law, securities law, tax law, intellectual property law, finance law, together with specific due diligence procedures. To raise capital for a business requires corporate law, securities law, and tax law. To attract and retain employees, our services could entail the preparation of employment agreements, compensation packages, including deferred compensation and incentive stock options, and shareholder agreements.
We provide practical solutions to our clients’ business problems. Our technology and industry focus allows us to become our clients’ strategic partner. We pride ourselves on gaining a far greater understanding of our clients’ technologies, industry environment and business needs than is typically expected from lawyers. After a quarter century of working with companies that create new technologies and markets, crafting innovative solutions to cutting-edge business problems has become our stock in trade.
We are frequently involved in assisting clients in structuring business transactions and in drafting and negotiating a wide variety of documents, including contracts for the acquisition or disposition of business entities, private placement and public offering of securities or debt instruments, partnership and joint venture agreements, restructuring work-out transactions, commercial contracts, incorporation documentation, employment and incentive compensation contracts, and reports and other disclosure documents required by the various state corporate and securities laws and federal securities laws.
Currently, we represent clients with U.S. and international operations, advising them on a wide range of commercial and financial transactions with a significant emphasis on international business, corporate finance and complex tax planning for businesses operating in multinational jurisdictions. Our practice includes mergers and acquisitions, corporate securities, corporate finance, venture capital, tax, as well as the protection, development and exploitation of intellectual property. We have extensive experience helping multinational clients develop and implement transfer pricing strategies that support their overall international tax plan, while complying with the often complex transfer pricing rules of different jurisdictions.
We have managed many international joint ventures and related marketing, distribution, licensing and technology transfer issues. Typically, the transactions contemplate manufacturing or development abroad with local management, based on technology, know-how, management and other tangible and intangible assets being provided from the United States. Our work has included ventures in countries throughout Europe, North and South America, the Middle East as well as Asia. We have also represented numerous foreign concerns seeking to participate in U.S. ventures.
