Firearms Business Lawyers
We serve as the single point of contact for members of the Firearms Industry, and handle the following day-to-day matters:
We review, draft, and negotiate contracts for all types of commercial transactions, including customer and vendor agreements, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures.
Firearms Business Formation
We organize and form simple (single layer) and complex (multi-layer) limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships, and other business organizations. Our ATF license lawyers and FFL lawyers handle ATF licensing, advising clients on obtaining the best type(s) and number of licenses for their business.
Firearms Business Re-Organization
We evaluate a company’s current structure and determine whether a re-organization will better facilitate its growth strategy and ensure longevity. A re-organization may require new ATF licenses and we handle that, advising clients on obtaining the best type(s) and number of licenses for their business and doing so without business interruption or “downtime”.
Operating and Governance
We draft internal governance documents, including operating agreements, shareholders’ agreements, by-laws, rules and regulations, and standard operating procedures.
Owner’s Manuals, Warranties, and Website Terms
We draft and negotiate executive compensation and management agreements, and restrictive covenants (“non-compete” and “non-solicitation”).
Gun Crime Defense
If you have been charged with a crime involving weapons or domestic violence, your rights may be in jeopardy. Some convictions can bar you from possession firearms for life and cannot be undone. We can help you protect your rights to the fullest extent of the law, and make sure that you don’t lose your firearms rights unnecessarily.
It is imperative that one charged with a crime, in particular a domestic violence crime, obtain competent legal counsel with regard to firearms laws. There are a great many pitfalls and intertwining of state and federal law that must be known as a case proceeds through the criminal justice system.
With the push for further gun control in America there is even more attention paid to the unlawful transfer in firearms. We have extensive experience defending these issues in federal court. We can defend you through the criminal justice process and ensure your right to keep and bear arms is not arbitrarily denied.
