Denver business owners can have various concerns, including:
Entity types provide different risks and rewards. A business attorney guides you through the process of selecting an entity type and forming the entity so it meets your needs and concerns.
Occasionally, companies find they need to restructure. This can happen when:
Contracts represent the lifeblood of commercial life. Most business transactions would never happen without a way to enforce legally-binding promises.

The attorneys at Sequoia Legal have extensive experience using the law to accomplish your business and commercial objectives. We have experience representing companies varying in size, from sole proprietorships to multi-billion dollar transnational corporations. Our clients represent many different types of companies, including:
Commercial law differs from other areas of law because it involves building something rather than tearing it down. Instead of anticipating lawsuits, business attorneys anticipate exciting events involving complex legal issues like mergers and acquisitions, the registration of a significant trademark, or the completion of the lease for a new corporate headquarters.
Disputes may still arise, even when you do everything right. Parties disagree on the interpretation of contracts and the scope of commercial rights every day. Business attorneys seek to resolve these disputes on fair terms so that you can return to business as usual.
When you hire a business lawyer, you need someone with a wide range of experiences so they can find creative solutions to your business problems. The lawyers at Sequoia Legal have worked with many businesses across a range of industries.
You'll have business law issues arise several times per day. Sequoia Legal offers monthly plans, so you always have a lawyer available when you need one without spending a fortune on lawyer's fees.
Broad experiences help lawyers anticipate disputes, helping you avoid them. Sequoia Legal has lawyers who have dealt with the same issues your business faces. By thinking ahead, they can counsel you to comply with regulations, meet your contractual obligations, and avoid litigation.
Our Denver export compliance law firm has extensive experience with export administration regulations, the FCPA and international trade and can assist clients with developing export control and FCPA compliance programs. We ensure each client follows appropriate FCPA, export control compliance and foreign trade regulations for their industry, and our clients hail from nearly every industry sector. The attorneys at Sequoia Legal have successfully assisted and provided continued guidance for several international companies regarding the internal implementation of FCPA and export compliance plans. These companies employ and engage in various transactions with individuals and companies around the world. To ensure continued compliance with US sanctions laws and regulations following the implementation of the FCPA and export compliance programs, Sequoia Legal has conducted company audits, interviews and internal FCPA training programs. Due to the diligence of the Sequoia Legal team, zero issues or enforcement actions have been taken by the US government against Sequoia's clients for any FCPA or export related matter. An investment in a Sequoia Legal compliance plan has saved our clients time, focus and money.
Companies routinely face complex situations when exporting or doing business internationally. There is a complex set of laws and regulations applicable to the persons, places and products involved in international business. Businesses sometimes end up violating or running afoul of these highly technical and complicated rules. Sequoia Legal has represented various US and foreign companies in conducting internal investigations relating to suspected violations of US sanctions and export controls. Following completion of these internal investigations, where necessary, we have assisted clients in voluntarily disclosing suspected violations to US authorities and have obtained favorable outcomes, including reduced penalties or no penalties. This has allowed our clients to sleep at night and continue to expand and do business internationally in compliance with applicable US law.
Our team at Sequoia Legal regularly helps sellers and buyers of businesses navigate the intricacies of the purchase and sale process to help them achieve their dreams. In this case, Sequoia Legal was brought on by the owners of a local technology company in a sale to a strategic acquirer with a total transaction value in the multiple millions. We successfully negotiated transaction agreements, including due diligence with the buyer and post-closing employment agreements, and closed the transaction within an expedited 30 days period. As part of this process, we helped educate the sellers through their first transaction and work through the emotional roller coaster of selling your business.
And Finding It! Sequoia Legal regularly helps search funds and individuals find, acquire and successfully build new businesses. Our client was a search funder focused on acquiring a company in the professional services industry. We assisted in negotiating several LOI's that fell through, but as a result of that process, we found the right acquisition fit and assisted our client in executing an LOI, conducting due diligence, structuring the deal, negotiating the purchase agreement, working with the SBA and completing a deal that included a cash payment, SBA loan and seller financing with a variable note that reduced if certain revenue metrics were not achieved. We then assisted our client with several "tuck-in" acquisitions to further augment and accelerate the client's goals and exponentially grow revenue.
Andrew and the Sequoia team are incredibly talented, detail oriented, and overall wonderful and trustworthy and people. I would highly recommend!
Andrew has been a great asset for my business through different acquisitions, employee onboarding documents, as well as providing assistance to many of my clients.
What a fantastic team here! They are super helpful, personable, and so incredibly knowledgeable! When I called them, I was immediately put in contact with a very professional young woman named Christina, and she immediately put me at ease. The whole team was very helpful with my issue, and I would not hesitate to call them again. If you are in need of legal assistance, definitely give them a call.

I can't say enough great things about Hunter and Andrew and the Sequoia team. We purchased a small business, and they were efficient, knowledgeable, and direct with their feedback about the deal and its structure and available when we needed them.
