If you are involved with a complex transaction, merger, acquisition or the sale of your business, the details can be endless. You must sort through a tremendous amount of issues and deal with many obstacles. Some issues that arise in a "simple" business transaction can surprise you. For instance, even a business like metal die casting must deal with intellectual property issues and potential patent disputes. Laser cutters are programmed through software that is licensed and may not be automatically transferable to the new business owners. So, there may be trademark issues in the "simple" business transaction.
You need experienced and knowledgeable professionals to help you identify all the relevant issues and handle all of the obstacles. At Griffith and Jacobson, LLC, we are attorneys with business sense. Our attorneys can help you assess the tax, business and legal implications of each alternative. We will explain the choices every step of the way. We know your business.

Protecting You through Transitions
How do you protect your trade secrets when a key employee moves on? Our business lawyers are skilled at drafting contractual prohibitions against use or disclosure of confidential information and trade secrets. Employment policies that address the ownership of your company's "know-how and show-how"-specific knowledge of the trade by key personnel-can be critical to retain value for the company.
Non-compete contracts cut across many occupations and businesses. They can apply to employees who have access to certain trade secrets or other proprietary information—customer lists or buyer lists, for example. They can apply to the medical industry, when a doctor who is part of a group practice moves on. They must be crafted carefully. Our attorneys are skilled in drafting non-compete agreements.
