An experienced attorney can help you to avoid future legal problems through the proper drafting of business-related documents and explaining your contractual and/or corporate rights and obligations in owing, operating or managing a business. York Gaskill represents and advises businesses, individuals and entrepreneurs who are in business or entering into a new business venture or business transaction or are in need of competent advice regarding the various legal issues that will likely affect their ultimate success. Drawing from our wealth of experience in litigating business disputes, we often educate our clients on how to avoid legal problems in the first place. In addition, we possess the real life perspective of operating a business and understand the importance of striving to help our individual and business clients succeed in business.
York Gaskill represents and advises businesses, individuals, and entrepreneurs in the birth, life, and death of their small to medium sized businesses. These steps include the formation documents, buy-sell agreements, contracts, leases, licensing agreements, intellectual property filings, employment agreements, and non-compete agreements that a business needs early in its life. We routinely draft operating agreements and bylaws as part of early stage business formation. We have extensive experience representing start-up companies, including advising clients on investment packages and drafting founders’ agreements and reverse vesting restricted stock purchase agreements, and other venture capital documents such as convertible promissory notes. We are frequently called to assist with employment manuals and policy documents tailored to particular clients. We provide training and advice related to numerous employment issues and client specific problems, including FLSA, EEOC and ADA matters. We advocate for a preparatory and preventative approach for our business clients to help avoid future legal problems and litigation.
Additionally, York Gaskill also handles litigation that stems from every aspect of a business. This includes breach of contract and business tort claims, harassment, discrimination, and other EEOC claims, and intellectual property litigation. In particular, our attorneys, Christopher York and Daniel Park, regularly litigate EEOC cases and trademark and copyright infringement cases in federal court. Our attorneys have handled all phases of litigation in business matters throughout the state of Georgia in both state and federal courts.
We strive to meet our clients’ goals by thoroughly assessing the facts and relevant legal authority for each case, and crafting a strategy to achieve those goals, whether through negotiations and drafting of transactional documents or by prosecuting or defending a lawsuit from pre-litigation settlement negotiations up to and including trial.
