General Counsel Services

Focused On The Needs Of Your Business

At The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, we understand no two companies' needs are identical, nor are the personalities that run the companies. That is why our attorneys focus on each business we represent individually, identifying its needs and learning about its personality. We determine what obstacles will need to be overcome and how to best deal with them from both a legal and business perspective.

Our representation of small and midsize businesses, entrepreneurs, and individual investors in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is comprehensive. Our attorneys have represented private and public company clients in industries as diverse as health care, real estate, sports and entertainment, retail, food distribution, construction, hospitality, engineering, public relations, gaming, marketing, and more. We are often asked to serve as general counsel for companies and represent them in all aspects of their corporate and transactional life, including:

  • Business formation
  • Qualifications to do business in other states, including filing fictitious (d/b/a) names
  • Employment and personnel matters, including drafting employee handbooks and counseling human resources representatives on the legal ramifications of implementing the policy provisions on a case-by-case basis

Business litigation

The manner in which a business dispute is resolved can be just as important as the resolution itself. While we are willing and able to go to trial to resolve the most complex disputes, we also are adept at negotiation and alternative dispute resolution as alternatives to litigation. If it is possible to preserve a valuable business relationship during the course of resolving a dispute, we will make certain that the opportunity is not overlooked.
