Business & Corporate Law

Entity Formation & Maintenance
We advise companies from setup to sale and everything in between. Our corporate practice attorneys provide advice and consultations on a broad range of issues including choice of entity, shareholder agreements, investors, employees, loans, and the various issues related to growth. We can help with your company’s setup, sale, or dissolution by preparing and negotiating the necessary documents along the way.

Contracts
We review, revise, and prepare a wide range of contracts and forms for businesses. We understand that businesses need a variety of documents prepared in a creative, prudent, and timely manner. Our team has expertise in an extensive range of agreements, such as:

If you do not see what you need on the list, just call and ask. But chances are, we work on it.

Complex Commercial Litigation
Ortiz & Schick has considerable experience and a record of success in resolving a wide range of business and commercial disputes. We practice in state and federal trial courts and appellate courts, as well as in the broad range of alternative dispute resolution processes, such as arbitration and mediation. We help our clients stay out of lawsuits through pre-suit meditations and thoughtful and creative legal advice. If the best alternative is to proceed with litigation or arbitration, we help by endeavoring to end suits quickly through settlement negotiations, or if necessary and advantageous, aggressively taking matters through trial, arbitration, and appeal. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants and have been successful in cases involving contracts, business torts, construction, corporate fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair trade practice, RICO, toxic torts, and other issues.
