Philadelphia Business Lawyers
Over the years, due to the good fortune of serving thousands of clients in almost every type of matter, our lawyers have developed a broad base of experience.
Although we at Sidkoff, Pincus & Green are known in the legal community as Philadelphia business lawyers and as commercial lawyers, we actually devote a large portion of our time and attention to trial law in cases where the issues are very complex and our clients are in a fight for their lives, reputations and financial viability. Often we are paired off against the government or multinational companies. Our cases are therefore usually very challenging, but one thing has been established: if we take a case, and if our client gave us good information when we evaluated it, we won’t back down because of the firepower our opponents try to throw at us.
The focus of our attention during any given time frame is a product of the type of work our clients bring to us. Recently, we have seen a heavy concentration on business and employment litigation, mixed with contract negotiations, drafting of transactional documents, and advising business clients on matters of International Law.
Sidkoff, Pincus & Green (“SPG”) is regularly involved in trial and litigation matters in federal and state courts, as well as before administrative agencies, and in front of arbitrators and mediators. We also have deep experience in appeal work in various state and federal appellate courts. Since we are devoted to the principal that from the moment we sign on to a lawsuit, every significant legal issue in a case must be researched thoroughly to be prepared for the ever changing status of the law, our legal research at the trial level often pays dividends on appeal. We recognize the issues that might be the subject of appellate briefs early in the case, and create and preserve a trial record that will be valuable in the event of an appeal.
In the area of financing and raising money for growing companies, SPG has networked clients to sources of investment and loans on the one hand, and on the other, we have participated in drafting business development plans, complex contract documents and conducting due diligence to vet potential deals offered to our clients. We also have devoted substantial effort over the years to helping our clients identify and pursue strategic partners.
Because SPG is fortunate enough to be the lawyers for some extraordinarily affluent individuals, we have years of practice in dealing with banks and outside advisors, managing trusts, overseeing foreign and domestic accounts, and in helping our clients respond to the business opportunities and legal challenges growing out of the myriad of businesses they own.
A significant number of our clients own companies that provide sales and representation services for manufacturers. In the context of drafting agreements, these clients have retained SPG to negotiate with institutions, their partners and others. They have similarly sought our advice on strategies to avoid litigation, and have retained SPG when litigation was desirable or unavoidable.
We regularly represent clients in claims involving contract issues, breach of fiduciary duty, shareholder disputes, insurance bad faith, intellectual property, trademark infringement and misappropriation of trade secrets.
In addition, our lawyers routinely take on cases involving wrongful termination, whistle blowing, personal injuries, medical malpractice and mass tort. We also handle divorce, custody and support matters in high net worth cases, and our extensive experience in business disputes has provided us with the background necessary in marital estate cases where one spouse is an owner of a company, and the value of that entity is in dispute.
