BUSINESS AND CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS

We advise our clients on a wide array of business issues and decisions from incubation through the development stage and into full-scale operations. We organize business entities and structure and document business mergers, combinations and strategic alliances. We assist in business negotiations and dispute resolutions, and document business transactions. The firm also serves in an "outside general counsel" capacity to small and medium-size businesses.

REAL ESTATE

We provide a full range of legal services necessary for the planning, acquisition, financing, development, leasing and sale of residential, commercial and industrial real estate.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The firm structures and documents domestic and international technology transfers and advises on general intellectual property matters. We also file and prosecute trademark and service mark applications with the Patent and Trademark Office and State of California.

ESTATE PLANNING, ADMINISTRATION AND LITIGATION

The firm provides complete estate planning and administration services for individuals and families. Our services include free initial consultations and evaluations of the client's estate; a recommended plan designed to preserve and protect family assets and to reduce estate, gift, income and generation-skipping taxes; and the drafting of carefully tailored documents to implement the adopted plan. We also serve as counsel to trustees and probate estates and provide asset protection planning services. We also handle probate and trust litigation matters, including will and trust contests.

ASSET PROTECTION

The firm develops asset protection plans for clients who are concerned about future creditor claims. Persons in high risk ventures or litigious professions are suitable candidates for such a plan. An asset protection plan is a preventative measure that must ordinarily be in place before any claim is made if it is to serve its purpose. The firm uses the most advanced techniques and structures to protect a client's assets, privacy and confidentiality.

BUSINESS AND PERSONAL LITIGATION

Although the firm attempts to negotiate a favorable settlement as a first option, some disputes simply cannot be resolved without resort to the court or other tribunal. We vigorously enforce and defend our clients' rights and interests with a wide array of litigation services for court, administrative and arbitration proceedings.

IMMIGRATION

The firm provides a variety of U.S. immigration services in immigrant categories and business related categories. We represent clients ranging in size from multi-national corporations to small companies who have just started business in the United States. We also represent individual clients who have other non-business related U.S. Immigration needs, such as obtaining U.S. permanent residence (“Green Card”) and U.S. citizenship through family relationship. We have many years of experience working closely with the Asian community, especially Japanese corporate communities.
