PRACTICE

Corporate & BusinessCORPORATE & BUSINESS
Commercial Transactions – We represent buyers and sellers of privately-held businesses and other transactions involving stock and business assets, whether or not they involve interests in real estate.
Contract Drafting and Negotiation – We can handle virtually any type of contract you need drafted, reviewed or negotiated. In the recent past, we have reviewed or drafted reality TV production agreements, franchise agreements, long-term equipment leases, noncompete agreements, exclusive supply contracts, licensing agreements, and joint venture agreements, to name a few.
Business Formation and Structure – As soon as you’re ready to launch your next venture, we can help you set up your new corporation, LLC, partnership or other business entity. A conversation with your CPA is usually a good first step, before you get your lawyer involved in the formation of any new entity.
Corporate Governance – Once your new entity is formed, we can help you maintain it properly and keep you in good standing. Like the roof over your head, the shelter and protection provided by a corporation or LLC depends not just on how well it was constructed, but how well it’s maintained over the years.
501(c)(3) and Other Exempt Organizations – We have experience in forming a variety of nonprofit corporations, including civic organizations, arts groups, religious organizations and other charities, and assisting with the process of gaining tax exemption from the IRS.
Government Contracts – We represent companies with government contracts, and we advise those who are seeking to do business with local and federal agencies and governments.
Copyright and Trademark – Patents and most trademark issues are better left to the IP lawyers, but we can assist with routine intellectual property matters involving copyrights, trademarks and trade names. We will refer you to the rocket scientists whenever you’re in need of some serious expertise.
Real EstateREAL ESTATE
Financing, Acquisition and Development – We represent real estate investors and developers in all phases of their projects, including land acquisition and assemblage, site planning, development and construction, and the financing of all of the above. We also close acquisition, development and construction loans for commercial lenders.
Title Services – We are a title agent for First American Title Insurance through the Attorney’s Title Guaranty Fund. We bind coverage for owners, borrowers and lenders throughout the state of Georgia.
Condominium and Planned Unit Developments – Over the years, we have worked with our developer clients to create dozens of residential, commercial and mixed-use communities throughout the state. Our services include negotiation and drafting of easements and cost-sharing agreements, incorporation of homeowner and condominium associations, and drafting of covenants and bylaws.
Residential Transactions and Refinance Closings – Our attorneys and staff have, collectively, closed thousands of residential real estate loans. We also represent buyers and sellers in cash purchases of residential properties.
Community Associations (Condo & HOA) – We represent homeowner and condominium associations in all facets of community governance and management, including assessment collections and other covenant enforcement. We also represent homeowners in disputes with their HOAs or neighbors, always with an eye towards achieving a fair but favorable resolution.
Landlord/Tenant Disputes – We handle commercial and residential dispossessory actions on behalf of both landlords and tenants.
Land Use and Zoning – We are experienced in a variety of zoning and land use issues, including rezoning and variance requests, subdivision and PUD approvals, and special use permits. We can merely advise you behind the scenes, or take the ball and run with it, depending on your needs and your own comfort level with the process.
Commercial and Residential Leasing – We advise landlords and tenants in their lease negotiations for all types of industrial, office and retail spaces. We draft and review both commercial and residential leases, and can be as involved in the negotiation process as each client wants or needs us to be.
Foreclosure/REO – For lenders with “problem” loans, we provide foreclosure services. For lenders with “special” assets, we provide an array of services, including general advisement, dispossessory and eviction, including “cash for keys” assistance, title services, condominium and HOA assistance, and end-user closing services.
Bankruptcy and Workouts – For borrowers who are upside down or underwater, or both, or worse, we can negotiate with your lender or advise you behind the scenes. We handle loan workouts, including the drafting and negotiation of forbearance agreements, and can represent you in a post-foreclosure confirmation action.
Entertainment and IPEntertainment & IP
Industry Representation – We offer full service production company and TV/film production industry representation, including drafting and negotiation of production contracts, deal memos, talent holding agreements, location and personal releases, and broadcast and distribution contracts.  We can also assist with title and rights clearance issues, on a scene-by-scene or episode-by-episode basis, including copy and script review.
Artist Representation – We are no substitute for a good agent, but if you find yourself in a legal conflict or your reps advise you to seek legal counsel on a particular matter or issue, we can provide that service and will work alongside your reps to ensure we work efficiently and don’t duplicate their efforts.
Intellectual Property Rights – Patents and most trademark issues are better left to the IP lawyers, but we can assist with routine intellectual property matters involving copyrights, trademarks and trade names. We will refer you to the rocket scientists when you’re in need of some serious expertise.
Wills, Trusts & EstatesWILLS, TRUSTS & ESTATES
We can help with your estate planning by working with you and your financial advisors in the drafting of your Will. We can also draft any necessary trust documents and what most people refer to as a “living will” (in Georgia, an Advance Directive for Health Care). When the time comes, we can also handle the probate of your loved-one’s estate, regardless of whether he or she left a will, and represent you in any probate disputes.
