We specialize in real-estate, business and intellectual property law (trade secrets, trademarks and copyrights).
Methven & Associates is a business-law firm with a specialization in intellectual property, private-placement securities offerings and real estate. We provide our clients with transactional services such as entity formation, stock and other offerings, stock-option plans, corporate structuring, contract and lease drafting and review, and advice regarding employment matters and business law.
We also represent all sizes of clients in registering trademarks and copyrights, in Internet law and technology law, in the preparation of e-commerce agreements, privacy policies, licenses of all types and non-disclosure agreements, among others. In addition, we represent the business community vigorously in commercial litigation and arbitration. In terms of commercial litigation, we have successfully handled a wide variety of court cases, including recovering substantial sums for our clients in breach of contract litigation, forcing domain-name mimics to stop their tactics, and blocking injunctions based on allegations of breach of confidentiality and unfair competition. In addition, the principal of the firm has more than 20 years of experience as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.
On the transactional side, we have handled many multi-million dollar sales and acquisitions of businesses. Contract and lease drafting and review is one of our specialties. Also, with respect to employee matters, we provide advice on employee policy manuals, how to avoid violations of employment laws, and how to protect intellectual property.
