Given the complexity of corporate issues, there is no question but that most companies will need to secure corporate counsel at some time or another. Recent events in the corporate community, together with the advent of new legislation to regulate corporate governance for publicly traded companies, has made regular access to sound legal advice on corporate policies, procedures and transactions a necessity. The expense for legal assistance for many small to mid-sized companies lacking an in-house legal staff can be quite a burden and therefore legal counsel is not used as often as needed.
The Business Law team at ZE can provide an alternative to this approach. In that ZE is based in Prince William County rather than Fairfax, DC or New York, we can offer this much needed assistance for everyday operations at a very reasonable cost, as well as support your business litigation needs more cost effectively.
At ZE, we can provide your company with legal advice and services very similar to that typically provided by in-house counsel, but without the overhead burden of staffing a legal department. We are very experienced in the generation and review of commercial transactional documents including Value Added Reseller Agreements (VARs), Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs), licenses, Teaming Agreements and Original Manufacturing Agreements (OEMs).
So, what can we do to for your company? Specifically, we can develop operational and governance policies and procedures and provide in-house training for executives and staff on sexual harassment policies, insider trading regulations, corporate e-mail policies and a variety of operational policies and procedures. At Zelnick & Erickson, our corporate practice is focused on early legal intervention in the contracting and policy-making process in order to prevent and reduce the risk of costly litigation while at the same time remaining mindful of your need to do business quickly and efficiently.
