CORPORATE STRUCTURING AND RESTRUCTURING
TEIL works with inbound companies to structure agreements for partnerships and scaling.
With consistent introduction of varying revenue streams and distribution channels, the opportunity for profit grows, as so does the complexity.
That’s where we come in.
Business is a little like life. Much of the difficulties you encounter can be avoided with careful planning, and preparation - but some issues cannot be avoided. Protecting a brand or even a single design involves intellectual property, copyrights, trademarks, and patents. Don’t find yourself unprotected, arm yourself with legal expertise and get ahead of the curve.
DEFAMATION & IMAGE RIGHTS
Maintaining the integrity of your public image is an inseparable part of your business, whether you’re a creative individual or a small company. Protecting your privacy and your public image from slander and libel is only one side of the coin; negotiating sponsorships, public appearances, and endorsements is the other. TEIL advises on both, offering litigation and dispute resolution, defamation (pre and post publication), and other image protection mechanisms—all so you can amplify and control the way you want the world to see you.
The internet, software, and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges in protection and monetization—challenges that our firm stays two steps ahead of.
The startup and small business marketplace is still a new and fierce frontier that requires legal advice from attorneys who are deeply familiar with the ins and outs of new business. We offer a competitive advantage that can help you save money and make more of it in the long run. Our holistic approach is essential to any company looking to grow.
