Doerner lawyers help individuals and businesses operating within the retail to conduct business transactions, resolve disputes and navigate government regulations in ways that achieve maximum growth and prosperity.
We assist retailers with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and partnering arrangements, public and private securities offerings, restructurings and reorganizations, venture capital and other financing transactions. As a full-service firm, we offer retailers the benefit of advice from collaborative teams, as our corporate lawyers work with our tax lawyers to maximize available tax benefits in transactions, and work with our intellectual property and antitrust attorneys to advise on licensing, technology transfer and similar concerns.
Retailing is intensely focused on human resource issues and we represent the interest of retailers and employers in such concerns as compensation and benefits plan designs, strategic counseling, and development of employment policies. If workplace disputes arise, we defend employment and employee benefits cases on an individual as well as a class basis.
Doerner can represent retailers in the full range of real estate issues they encounter regionally and nationally. We are well-versed in commercial lending and public finance, construction, environmental and tax issues in building new retailing facilities. We handle the acquisition, disposition, leasing and syndication of retailing properties, and when necessary can advise on issues related to workouts, foreclosures and bankruptcy.
Finally, Doerner litigators handle a wide array of complex commercial litigation and arbitrations for retailers, ranging from single-issue injunctions to multi-million dollar contract disputes.
