Experienced Houston Commercial Attorney Counseling Businesses and Corporations Throughout Texas

Effective corporate counseling demands extensive experience in both the transactional and litigation contexts. Attorneys must work closely with clients and strategic partners and advise on transactions, keeping in mind the potential legal risks and liabilities associated with various transactional decisions.  Each Houston commercial attorney at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP has decades of experience working in an advisory capacity with a diverse range of businesses, and litigating contract and employment disputes from mediation all the way through to trial.

Strategic and Effective Counseling Services

At Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, our Houston commercial lawyers provide comprehensive corporate counseling services that include anticipating litigation risk, minimizing litigation risk, integrating with strategic corporate partners, and avoiding litigation through pre-litigation

Anticipating and Minimizing Litigation Risk

Corporate counseling attorneys are responsible for anticipating the risk of corporate liability in myriad ways, whether the company is launching a new product (the corporate counseling attorney may identify potential patent, copyright, or trademark infringement issues) or entering into a sale of goods contract (the corporate counseling attorney can assess the provisions of the contract and determine if there are potential liability risks involved).  Once the liability risk has been identified, the attorney will advise the client on how best to proceed so as to minimize such risks.

Corporate Integration

The provision of high-end corporate counseling services requires that the attorney be properly integrated with the business entity such that they have access to appropriate strategic partners.  Integration ensures that the corporate counseling attorney can identify potential liability risks in a timely manner and provide the necessary advisory services.  Here at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, our commercial lawyers have years of experience working with a range of business entities in Houston and throughout Texas (sole proprietorships, corporations, etc.) and we know how to integrate their corporate counseling services with strategic partners at a given company.

Pre-Litigation Compromises

The effectiveness of corporate counseling services depends largely on an attorney’s ability to predict potential litigation risks and avoid litigation.  The risk of litigation may be minimized in some cases by altering the provisions of a contract to make the language less ambiguous, for example, or by negotiating a win-win scenario in a commercial transaction. In other cases, however, liability may already have attached. When liability has already attached, a Houston commercial lawyer at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP can begin negotiations with the injured party to reach an early compromise and avoid litigation altogether.
