Other representations include:

  • represented a member of a health care joint venture in the un-winding of the transaction, including litigation regarding use and ownership of trade-secrets, effectiveness of a non-competition agreement, and allocation of financial assets.
  • represented a major handgun manufacturer in successfully defending against parallel investigations brought by the Federal Government and various state attorney generals.

  • represented a group of shareholders of a technology company who sought the removal of certain officers and high-level employees (including the President). The dissidents prevailed - the President and another departed, tendered their interests in the corporation (and returned certain assets which they had taken control of or which were in their name, including valuable intellectual property) and entered into non-competes.
  • represented shareholders of an international manufacturer in a stock sale, involving both US and foreign entities.
  • represented manufacturer in securing various trademark and copyright licenses.
  • represented key employee in structuring acquisition of equity interests in a construction firm and related real estate development company.
