Corporate & Business Matters


The firm handles a broad range of corporate and business matters for businesses located in the U.S. and abroad, and serves as corporate counsel for numerous businesses in the Washington metropolitan area.  Matters include initial corporate organization (including articles of incorporation, bylaws, shareholder agreements, etc.), corporate joint venture documentation, state registration, licensing, partnerships and limited liability companies, purchase and sale of businesses, franchising, etc.  The firm has particular experience in advising non-U.S. clients on the establishment of operations in the U.S., including federal and state licensing requirements.

Moreover, the firm represents clients in all phases of contract matters, from pre-negotiation advice to contract formation, disputes, litigation and arbitration.  This includes prime and subcontractor agreements, joint ventures and teaming arrangements, disputes resolution, and commercial arbitration.  This area includes work for manufacturers, suppliers, and service companies.  It also includes equipment financing, construction and real estate contracts.

We also have considerable experience with commercial litigation, not only centered on private contract disputes, but also litigation involving fraud and U.S. antitrust issues, as well as civil racketeering claims.

Finally, Zuckert, Scoutt & Rasenberger represents a number of companies in trademark matters, both in the U.S. and abroad.  Representation ranges from advising both domestic and foreign companies prior to development and use of a mark, to registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, protection of marks abroad and trademark litigation.
