Zuckerman Spaeder LLP’s attorneys provide experienced counsel to clients in a wide variety of business matters. We have advised Fortune 500 companies, law firms, nonprofits, Native American tribes, and small- and medium-size businesses in numerous industries, including banking, manufacturing, food drugs, medical devices, and other Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-regulated products, real estate, health care, retail, energy, and telecommunications. In addition to counseling organizations, we also advise individual lawyers, business owners, and public figures in matters outside the courtroom. We provide a range of services, including serving as outside corporate counsel and providing business planning and financial advice. Our attorneys have experience navigating the legal issues surrounding the formation of corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and other business entities, as well as with mergers and acquisitions. We have also counseled international companies preparing to bring products to market in the United States. The firm has represented lenders and borrowers in secured and unsecured financings, in addition to structuring and documenting commercial transactions. When clients are facing bankruptcy, our attorneys provide counsel throughout the entire process. We also conduct due diligence work for companies seeking to acquire other companies involved in areas within our substantive expertise, such as FDA-regulated products. 

The firm regularly counsels businesses in a range of personnel matters and employee relations, in addition to representing clients in employment contract negotiations. We also register and enforce trademark and other intellectual property rights on behalf of our clients. We assist in preparing or reviewing contracts of all sorts, such as equipment leasing, licensing, joint ventures, and the purchase and sale of assets or businesses. Our attorneys counsel clients regarding various corporate compliance issues. By working with our clients to resolve their business challenges before they escalate to litigation, we help them avoid or mitigate risks and save money.

In addition to general business advice, Zuckerman Spaeder attorneys also provide counsel in specific areas of law. For example, our Legal Profession and Ethics Practice advises law firms on ethics issues and business matters such as internal disputes, partnership agreements, and trust accounts; our Food and Drug Practice provides counsel regarding the FDA approval process, labeling, advertising and promotion, and post-market surveillance; and our American Indian Practice advises clients on matters relating to gaming, taxation, and tribal sovereignty.
