Hudson Valley Business Law Attorney

Attorney Claudia Pollak advises and represents companies and entrepreneurs with a broad range of business-related legal matters.

The practice focuses on advising small and medium-sized businesses, entrepreneurs and company managers on legal issues that can impact an organization's future growth and profitability. This includes helping clients:

  • Choose the right type of legal entity and structure, whether a corporation or limited liability company (LLC)
  • Advise on mergers and acquisitions
  • Liquidate and dissolve businesses
  • Protect their intellectual property (trademarks, copyrights, licensing)
  • Review, draft and revise commercial contracts
  • Advise and train on employment law matters (employee handbooks, legal claims and investigations)
  • Implement executive compensation arrangements
  • Structure the issuance of founders' shares (shareholder agreements, 83(b) tax elections for restricted stock)
  • Draft stock option plans

For closely-held businesses, where the shareholders are family members or actively work for the company, it is important to talk about succession planning and to have a shareholders' agreement or operating agreement in place that protects the company and its owners.

The practice assists clients in the Lower Hudson Valley with the purchase and sale of their businesses, including advising on government licensing requirements, office and retail lease terms, due diligence review and other matters involved in buying and selling a business.

Attorney Claudia Pollak recognizes the importance of maintaining an organization's corporate records and properly documenting board and shareholder decisions for corporations (or member and manager decisions for LLCs). She is well-versed in drafting appropriate minutes of board and shareholder meetings, drafting company bylaws and LLC operating agreements and handling corporate government filings.
