We offer complete business and corporate law services with an emphasis on preventing problems and proactive planning. Our services include negotiating business agreements, drafting contracts for sales or acquisitions, financing of business operations, employee and shareholder agreements, operating agreements, technology licensing and copyright protection, and guiding our clients through the proper dissolution of businesses.

When disputes cannot be prevented or resolved through negotiation, our experienced business litigation attorneys offer powerful and knowledgeable representation in arbitration, litigation and appeals. We handle everything from breach of contract litigation, shareholder disputes and employee covenant breaches to fraud. Our firm also has substantial experience successfully litigating on behalf of manufacturer's representatives employing a little known provision of Georgia law, which applies to the wholesale distribution of goods for out-of-state manufacturers.

Protecting intellectual property rights is critical to many of our clients in a variety of fields, including marketing and the technology industry. The trademark, licensing and copyright law attorneys of Briskin, Cross & Sanford, LLC, assist clients in preventing unauthorized use and initiating or defending infringement actions and in maximizing their intellectual property.

Briskin, Cross & Sanford, LLC, has significant experience in franchise law, counseling clients who are purchasing or selling a franchise as well as assisting companies in franchising their business systems. This work involves not only advising clients of their rights and responsibilities pursuant to franchise rules promulgated by the Federal Trade Commission, but also involves counsel regarding related laws such as Georgia's Sale of Business Opportunity Act, of which many who license or sell a mark or business system are completely unaware.

Our attorneys are active in many volunteer and charitable organizations. As a result of our deep involvement, we have real experience in the formation and operation of nonprofit organizations. Our firm has represented charitable, religious, educational, civic and fraternal benefit organizations as well as trade associations, chambers of commerce and homeowners associations in various matters, including various formation and operating concerns, and, where appropriate, applying for tax-exempt status.
