Anticipating and Minimizing Business Risk

The corporate transactional lawyers at our Philadelphia office are adept at recognizing areas of legal, financial, and regulatory vulnerability in business agreements. In consultation with the client, we could work to minimize potential risks while pursuing their unique business goals.

Carefully drafted agreements reduce your risk of disputes and expensive litigation. Although some degree of risk exposure is inevitable in business transactions, our diligent attorneys work to ensure the client understands and accepts the specific risks before entering the agreement.

The Jacobs Law Group regularly calls on a team of subject matter experts in relevant disciplines to work to ensure both attorney and client have a comprehensive understanding of the implications of the contemplated business transaction; including in tax matters, business valuation, intellectual property and other areas.

We also have the ability to act as an independent general counsel to companies and families, missing that important skill set.
