Business Formation, Transactions, Disputes & Litigation

The Monterey County business lawyers at JRG manage a robust general corporate practice consisting of contracts, formations, dissolutions, dissociations, and corporate reorganizations. We specialize in handling complex, multi-party transactions and negotiations that may quite literally involve “betting the farm” on the successful completion of the deal. We can rapidly assemble experienced multi-disciplinary teams that are often essential to the successful finalization of these multi-party transactions, which may typically include corporate, finance, employment, regulatory, and environmental aspects. We regularly handle deals ranging in value from hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions of dollars. Our business law attorneys can also handle escrows involved in the purchase and sale of businesses.
