Business Planning and Commercial Transactions

Nusinov Smith attorneys provide the comprehensive, integrated, business, litigation and regulatory services that Maryland companies need. We serve in their formative stages, assist them in their growth, and help in their disposition or dissolution, whether through merger, acquisition or other business succession transactions.

Start-up Companies:

Nusinov Smith’s services nurture clients through their business life cycle. We help start-up companies get up and running quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. We advise new companies on key factors related to their organization, structure and constituencies, including entity formation and organizational matters; best practices and procedures for entity governance; capitalization and finance matters; executive compensation and employee benefits; regulatory compliance strategies; and strategic merger and acquisition planning and transactional representation.

Employment and Operations Matters:

Nusinov Smith works to help clients to manage people, products, and processes, so they can stay on track operationally. This includes assistance with the ever-changing federal and state employment laws, executive compensation, and employee benefits to permit clients to attract, retain, and manage talented executives, professionals and staff.

Acquisitions, Restructuring and Contracts:

The firm’s transactional practice assists companies as they grow and evolve. When our clients expand, they work with firm attorneys on the acquisition and disposition of intellectual property, technology, real estate and other assets as well as all operational transactions. We also assist clients with debt and equity financings, licensing and other collaboration and teaming arrangements. In addition, the firm's attorneys have handled numerous management and leveraged buyouts, corporate restructurings, spinoffs, recapitalizations, strategic alliances, partnerships and joint ventures, placing client companies in optimal positions to succeed in the marketplace.

Real Estate Transactions:

The firm's real estate practice assists clients with real estate transactions and facility issues for all of their office, commercial, and operational needs. We regularly advise on facility leasing, acquisition and financing.

Intellectual Property Protection:

The firm's intellectual property and trade secret practices protect the valuable, innovative products and business processes that commonly form a company's foundation. As ideas and innovations develop, Nusinov Smith's attorneys advise companies on how to retain their intellectual property rights and trade secrets as their employees leave.

Strategic Advice:

We act as strategic advisors through each stage of our client company’s growth. Depending on each client's needs, the firm may play a more active role in day-to-day operations and function as an integral extension of company management, providing legal advice and business counsel. Alternatively, as desired by clients, the firm may have a less active role, participating as on-call, transactional advisors that consult with clients regarding strategic commercial and business decisions as they arise.

In summary, we offer strategic advice to businesses in a variety of fields and deliver prompt, cost-efficient, and expert advice; practical and business-oriented solutions; and strategic and effective legal support.
