Services Offered

Business & Corporate Law

The skilled business attorneys on UpCounsel know what it takes to help Hayward area business owners keep their business community thriving - and they know what it means to be a lawyer that is called in to handle issues only when they’re needed. Every business owner needs legal support, but not every business needs or can pay for the overhead of general counsel. Most just need the support of legal services at startup, at certain points while in operation, and at sale, dissolution or acquisition of their business. Businesses of all sizes have to be lean and agile if they are to be assured of continued growth, and the business lawyers on UpCounsel work hard to understand their needs and act as engaged members of your business advisory board when needed while remaining an outsourced component of the team. Our lawyers have helped business owners with their startup needs through the acquisition or sale of their company and at every step in between, including drafting lease terms, website privacy policies, terms and conditions, and other agreements. Some of the responsibilities handled for Hayward business owners include contract negotiations, license agreements, shareholder agreements, and employee compensation agreements. Anything that the business owner needs in the way of legal support can be handled by the outsourced business attorneys on UpCounsel. Our Hayward lawyers help entrepreneurs, small business owners, and corporate executives in 94540, 94541, 94542, 94543, 94544, 94545, and 94557.

Intellectual Property Law

With many decades of collective legal experience, our team of legal professionals has the skills and background to handle a wide variety of intellectual property matters such as trademark defense, trademark registration, and protection of patents. The business lawyers on UpCounsel assist clients with national and international intellectual property concerns from their Hayward offices and offer a full spectrum of intellectual property services, focusing on intellectual property litigation including patent, trademark, and copyright infringement matters, patent preparation and prosecution, trademark transactions, patent transactions, and internet matters. Our clients include large and small businesses from virtually every sector of the science, technology, manufacturing, electronics, consumer products, and entertainment industries that seek protection of their intellectual property. In addition to their legal expertise, many of our business attorneys possess degrees in science or engineering, which ensures they understand the implications of the products and services offered by our clients and the registration and patent requirements that apply to new technologies.

Employment Law

Pensions, employee benefits and executive compensation programs play an increasingly important role in recruiting and retaining the talent that is essential to any successful business. In a climate of increasingly complex workplace regulations, however, employers have to establish employment strategies that result in productive and cost-effective outcomes. From labor relation negotiations and discrimination claims to employee benefit packagess, the lawyers on UpCounsel offer timely, creative, and aggressive advice and solutions that resolve — and even prevent — disputes and costly litigation. Our lawyers will help you design and implement employee benefit programs that serve the needs of individuals in publicly and privately held companies. Our multidisciplinary team draws upon not only decades of experience in employee benefits but also the resources of attorneys throughout the firm who focus on litigation, securities, individual and corporate taxation, estate planning, labor and employment, and corporate law to formulate comprehensive solutions and strategies.

Business Litigation & Mediation

In some situations and in some industries, business disputes and litigation are all part of the business practice. The business lawyers on UpCounsel deliver experienced and practical legal advice in situations where a business owner is threatened with business litigation and/or requested to attend mediation. It’s important to have the right legal help when you’re facing pre-lawsuit negotiations, court proceedings, mediation or arbitration. Our Hayward business lawyers bring over 100 years’ of practice to bear when managing business transactions, fighting off business litigation, and setting up successful businesses. As a business owner, you might feel that you can’t avoid lawsuits but in many cases you can simply by having the pragmatic advice of an experienced legal expert who will advise you when you need it and otherwise leave you to run your business as you see fit.
