Medical and Other Professionals: Specialized Clients with Challenging Legal Issues
Professional and business services clients are diverse. Their specializations include medicine, accounting, law, engineering, architecture, consulting, scientific and technical research, computer system design, and management and other services. Such a broad range of interests triggers a wide array of legal challenges.

We also assist clients with regulatory matters, bankruptcy proceedings, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, asset purchases, corporate malfeasance claims, white collar criminal defense, and general business disputes.
Jenkins Fenstermaker Provides Complete Services to Business and Professional Services Clients
While every business has a core function, its overall business concerns run much deeper. Professional and business services entities are employers that occupy real estate and are responsible for what occurs on the premises. They enter into daily business deals, and, regardless of the nature of the business or transaction, sometimes they become involved in lawsuits. Jenkins Fenstermaker can provide the legal counsel and litigation defense services to address these legal needs and more.
The Need for Labor and Employment Professionals
Employees are the foundation of many professional and business services organizations. Remaining compliant with regulation of employment matters requires partnership with experienced labor and employment law counsel for business and professional clients.
Our clients benefit from our labor and employment group in the following areas: counseling services, drafting employment contracts and employee manuals; litigation defense; discrimination and wage and hour claims; counsel on leaves of absence; benefits determinations; deliberate intent claims; workers’ compensation issues; and more. Our skilled labor and employment attorneys are the answer to all your labor and employment needs.
Transaction Attorneys for Your Commercial and Real Estate Matters
Running a business involves a dizzying amount of daily business transactions, each with its own legal encumbrances. Our business and commercial attorneys have the legal aptitude and experience as well as the business acumen to steer clients through general business and commercial real estate transactions, tax issues, and succession planning. We are seasoned professionals in dealing with regulatory concerns, securities matters, and bankruptcy proceedings.
For financing and other financial matters, we guide clients through the process of evaluating debt obligations, mortgage packages, asset purchases, and mergers and acquisitions.
Although we live in a technology age, many businesses have a physical presence, and occupying a facility may implicate land use and zoning issues. With our experience and expertise in real estate matters, we can help with everything from investigating and negotiating to managing land use issues.
Organizational Structure and Corporate Governance
The form of organizational structure you choose for your business can play a significant role in how you operate as well as your profitability, so the right advice and counsel on business structure is essential. Our business and commercial attorneys are up to the job of identifying and establishing the right organizational structure for your success.
Once your business is established, you can rely on our business and commercial group for guidance on your corporate governance, succession planning, compliance, and tax issues to keep your business efficient.
Risk Requires the Right Representation: Professional and Business Services Attorneys
Risk is part of being in business, and having the right attorneys behind you before and after that risk turns into a liability is critical. Our professional and business services attorneys will partner with your in-house counsel or provide independent representation to proactively minimize risk and, when needed, robustly defend against any claims.
