At VLF, our lawyers know that each business client has committed themselves to developing a unique concept and hard-worn reputation in their relevant market. As a full-service business law firm, VLF has represented local entrepreneurs and international businesses alike. Our advocacy and counsel is routinely sought for all of the legal challenges a growing business will face, whether that means launching a new venture, taking on outside investors, protecting creativity, or winning a complex lawsuit.
Entrepreneurs and start-ups are a major part of our clientele. We have stood with some of our long-term clients from the inception of their ideas, through launch and years of growth, to founder retirement years later. VLF routinely assists small businesses in forming the entity of their choice, including limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships, or joint ventures, to suit their needs. VLF also provides the legal expertise needed to structure corporate governance, complex acquisitions, and divestitures, prepare private stock issues, negotiate compensation packages, and protect and license intellectual property rights under state and federal law.
When your business faces legal action, VLF’s corporate and litigation attorneys bring their proven experience to meet the challenge. Initiating suit. Seeking injunction to stop irreparable harm before it happens. Winning damages to put your business back where it should be. Responding to a lawsuit. Evaluating and planning as the legal landscape shifts. VLF has obtained favorable results for its clients in everything from simple commercial disputes, to specialized technical arbitrations, to highly complex and lengthy multiparty federal and state litigation and appeals.
