Corporate Practice Group
For over 40 years, Lewitt Hackman's Corporate Practice Group Attorneys have been providing a full range of legal transaction and litigation services to both public and private business clients — from multi-million dollar entities to start-up companies.
Our attorneys have extensive background in the handling of matters in many diverse industries including: hotels, restaurants, waste management, entertainment, alcohol, tobacco, health care and the garment industry.
We provide counseling and litigation services to manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, hospitals, health care providers, real estate developers, franchisors, franchisees, producers, insurance agencies, accounting firms, law firms and other service and manufacturing businesses.
During the course of representation, Lewitt Hackman assists many of these businesses in:
- Commercial Finance
- Entity Formation
- Government Regulations
- Purchases or Sales of Businesses/Interests
We also advises management and boards of directors as to the legal implications of anticipated corporate actions and the effects of governmental regulation on those decisions. Family owned and closely held businesses have also long been an important part of our practice, particularly in the areas of corporate structure and succession planning.
Being a large law firm in the San Fernando Valley but a relatively small firm in Los Angeles, Lewitt Hackman adapts quickly to the ever-changing needs of our clients, meeting the complex demands and constraints of doing business in California.
Over the years, Lewitt Hackman developed the experience and expertise necessary to help family owned and closely held businesses align and balance the sometimes competing objectives of effective corporate governance, family harmony and financial success.
One reason we consistently achieve our client's goals is we believe that in order for a business to be successful, it is often necessary to engage or coordinate the services of other advisors. Our Firm's attorneys often work closely with our client's accountants, stockbrokers, insurance agents and other financial advisors to achieve the most desirous results for our client.
If a client is in need of an advisor, we employ our vast resources and referral base to assist in locating and engaging other advisors who can contribute to the success of their business.
As a result of the quality relationships and referral sources we have built over the last several decades, our attorneys often serve in the role of an experienced, trusted advisor to family owned business clients, guiding them through the often complex and unique challenges that they confront.
Since Lewitt Hackman is a full service firm, we are able to provide our clients with a full array of services, including advice pertaining to:
- Franchise and Distribution
- Mergers & Acquisitions
- Commercial Real Estate
- Copyright & Trademark
- Employment Law
- Technology & Licensing
- Tax Planning
- Trust and Estate Planning
We negotiate and prepare employment and consulting agreements, real estate and equipment leases, licensing agreements, transactional documents, commercial documents, corporate minutes, and other types of agreements. Clients also benefit from our expertise in tax, securities and other areas of governmental regulation.
