For over 40 years, Lewitt Hackman’s Los Angeles business law attorneys have provided a full range of legal services to public and private businesses, from multi-million and billion dollar entities doing business globally, to family-owned San Fernando Valley start-ups.
Our attorneys have extensive background in the handling of matters in many diverse industries including, but not limited to: hotels, restaurants, waste management, entertainment, alcohol, tobacco, health care and the garment industry. The firm has also provided legal 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 has assisted many of these businesses in a wide range of projects, including but not limited to: the formation of the entity, the purchase or sale of the business or an interest therein, syndications and financing, as well as the legal aspects of day-to-day operations.
Lewitt Hackman has also advised 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. Being a large firm in the San Fernando Valley but a relatively small law firm in Los Angeles, Lewitt Hackman has been able to adapt quickly to the ever changing needs of its clients in order to effectively meet the demands and constraints placed upon it by the firm’s clients.
Over the years, Lewitt Hackman has 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.
A reason the firm has been able to consistently achieve the client’s goals is because we believe that in order for a business to be successful, it is often necessary to engage or coordinate the services of other advisors. The firm’s attorneys often work closely with the client’s accountants, stockbrokers, insurance agents and other financial advisors to achieve the most desirous results for the client. If a client is in need of an advisor, we can also use our vast resources and referral base to assist our clients 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 the firm has built over the past 35 years, our attorneys are trusted by their clients and 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 law firm, it is able to provide its clients with a full array of services, including advice pertaining to corporate and business matters, real estate, licensing, trademark, copyright and other intellectual property issues, employment law, employee benefits, taxation and estate and succession planning. The firm negotiates and prepares 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 the firm’s expertise in tax, securities and other areas of governmental regulation.
