Yes, to determine nature of matter and ascertain that we can be of assistance.
Because our experience has spanned so many industries and has reflected both outside counseling and in-house practice, we are sensitive to how businesses work and can counsel effectively at every level of an enterprise.
Vance R. Koven has practiced business law for over 40 years. A graduate of Harvard Law School, he has counseled Fortune 500 companies, startups, ongoing small businesses, and entrepreneurs buying and selling companies, in industries as varied as manufacturing, computer technology, telecommunications, publishing and oil and gas, as well as nonprofit organizations, authors, artists and musicians. He has extensive experience in international transactions and intellectual property, and is the author of widely cited articles on international investment protection and intellectual property
This firm devotes itself exclusively to business organization, transactions in the broadest sense, intellectual property, and acquisitions and divestitures (including integrating acquired businesses into existing operating models). We are strong advocates of the clear, intelligible drafting of documents to avoid unnecessary ambiguity and obscure legalese. Although we have a strong network of colleagues in other areas of specialty, such as litigation, patent prosecution, real estate, trusts and estates, and other personal legal matters, we choose not to spread ourselves thinly to areas in which we add less value. We can therefore bring "Fortune 500" expertise to even the smallest of businesses, with extraordinary cost-effectiveness the result.
