Our services include:

• Commercial Transactions and Litigation

Your California commercial transactions are the basis for all matters affecting the financial interests and advantages of your business, and thus your success. Before drafting and negotiating an agreement, our goal is first to understand our client’s needs and objectives. By looking at all the circumstances and elements surround the transaction, we are able to come up with a more efficient negotiation that fits your business and corporate needs. We also find it important to pay attention to the goals and objectives of the other party to the transaction. This allows us to negotiate and draft a more astute, clear and precise contract, thereby protecting your current interests, limiting the risks of litigation in the future and allowing for more efficient litigation if a breach takes places.

Understanding the different aspects of a transaction process allows us to better know the elements of a contract, the rights and obligations of the parties and the original intentions during negotiations and drafting. We thrive to find the most efficient method to resolve the dispute and maintain damages, as well as costs, to a minimal level.

• Corporate Transactions and Litigation

Your corporate transactions are the basis for all matters affecting the financial interests and advantages of your business, and thus your corporate success in California or abroad.

Our policy is to take the time to analyze each relevant element of the contract and the applicable law in order to find the best strategical approaches.

We litigate diverse corporate issues, such as: derivative suits, enforcement of contracts, pre-incorporation liabilities, and agents liabilities.

• Business Formation

The first step in forming your new business in Florida is deciding what kind of business entity you wish to form. We are ready to help you decide between a Limited Liability Corporation, a Professional Association, a C-Corporation, an S-Corporation, a Sole Proprietorship or a Partnership. We will discuss your corporate structure needs, objectives and tax preferences and help you get that first step accomplished efficiently and with tranquility.

• Mergers and Acquisitions

Are you acquiring a new business? Are you merging with another corporation? Acquiring a private business involves complex factors and considerations that need to be balanced with the parties’ interests. We remain at your disposition to evaluate these factors in light of your interests. These evaluations can be done individually in a private meeting or through mediation, thereby involving the other parties.

• Coordination with International Institutions

We provide assistance and coordination for Florida public and private entities with international financial and administrative institutions. Dealing with the institutions can become very complex, especially from a legal perspective. The role of International Institutions, such as the Central Bank, the IMF, the European Union, NAFTA, and the WTO has been key to regulations, obligations and opportunities for entities across the globe.

• Maritime Transactions and Litigations

Whether you are buying or selling a vessel, transporting cargo, or need employee agreements for your crew or docking, we are ready to work with you. Maritime transactions involve numerous legal rights and obligations that come not only from local laws, but also from international conventions. A thorough understanding of your present and likely future rights and obligations is crucial to forming a valid and truly beneficial contract.

• Condominium and Homeowners Association Litigation

As the economy dropped, especially in Florida, condominium buildings have an increasing number of problems that affect not only the condominium association, but often the condominium owners and/or tenants. Litigation involving condominiums often include numerous parties, discovery and many factors to be considered. Whether the building has a defect, has been damaged, has a nuisance that becomes intolerable or someone is not paying the bills due, we discuss with our clients the different options available and their interests. Our objective is to put together a tactical and well-tailored plan to resolve the dispute in a way that meets our clients’ needs.

- International Services

• International Arbitration

We provide arbitration services as attorneys or as arbitrators in the United States and abroad. Arbitration can be a valid and efficient method of dispute resolution in certain cases, especially those that need to be expedited quickly. The costs of arbitration can often be equal or sometimes even lesser than the ones in regular court. Additionally, it provides clients with more flexibility as to the location of the dispute, the law applicable to the dispute and to the agreement, its procedure, confidentiality and the timeframe to resolve the dispute. Additionally, arbitration functions with a panel of arbitrators (usually between one (1) and three (3) arbitrators) that are usually picked by the parties.

• International Mediations

We provide international mediations for a wide variety of sectors that are useful to small businesses, corporations and individuals. Mediation is often helpful in an international setting to better understand the parties’ point of views in a litigation or in a transaction. In the international realm of legal services, there are many crucial factors that must be well understood culturally and legally. Mediation allows this process to take place and allows the parties or the attorneys to better plan for the litigation or transaction that will take place. It is also used to directly resolve disputes without going through the court system.

• International Commercial Agreements

There are multiple steps and considerations in a commercial agreement. Negotiations of an international commercial agreement should include thorough discussions and considerations for dispute resolution mechanisms, applicable laws, timelines and penalty clauses in certain cases. A proper transaction assesses the different options available to the client to protect his interests in the agreement and foresees possible litigation issues. Especially today, it is important to take into consideration every economical, legal and political element that may affect the agreement now or in the near future, so as to ensure the agreement is successful. That alone, however, remains insufficient in ensuring that the agreement will adequately protect the interest of the client.

• Business Set-up, Analysis & Strategies

With experience and qualifications in different legal systems and fluency in French, English, Spanish and Italian, we provide our clients with the following business set-up, analysis and strategies in order help you increase and secure your interests on an international platform:

. Drafting of commercial strategies and plans;

• International Maritime Transactions and Litigation

Whether you are buying or selling a vessel abroad, transporting cargo, or need employee agreements for your crew or docking, we are ready to work with you. An International maritime agreement involves numerous legal rights and obligations that come not only from local laws, but also from international conventions.

We take the time to understand these elements to negotiate and draft an agreement that functions well for your needs.

We represent individuals or corporations in maritime contract breaches and personal injury cases involving foreign parties, foreign languages, and foreign litigation forums. Call us to let us know how we may be of service.

• Coordination with International Institutions

We provide assistance and coordination for public and private entities with international financial, administrative and economic institutions. The role of the International Institutions, such as the Central Bank, the IMF, the European Union, NAFTA, and the WTO has been key to regulations and opportunities for entities across the globe. Let us keep a keen eye on changes in regulations, treaties, objectives and existence of these institutions and suggest changes that may help your business and will keep your due diligence, corporate books and corporate regulations up-to-date.

• Privatization

We monitor and assist our clients in privatization, transferring the ownership of a business, agency or enterprise from the public sector to the private sector. A good example of a public sector that has become private in many countries is the trash removal services. There are multiple arguments for privatizing a business, agency or enterprise, some of them relating to financial resources, efficiency and conservative government involvement.
