Advised our Client Regarding Possible ITAR Violation

Client: a chemical company

We identified a potential ITAR violation for a small specialty chemical company based on failure to register as an ITAR manufacturer. We advised our client regarding ITAR registration and voluntary self-disclosure.

Conducted Conservation Easement Law Research

We were involved significantly in conservation easement law research, analysis and summation, specifically regarding the highly debated area of amendments to conservation easements. We were also involved in the petition and negotiation for amendments to an existing conservation easement encompassing 1000+ acres of land in Montana and in the process of the creation of two new conservation easements comprised of more than 630 acres of land.

Represented the Owner of a Chemical Manufacturer During the Company’s Sale

We assisted the sole owner of a company that manufactured specialty chemical dyes in selling most of the assets of the company to a large conglomerate that had been a former customer. Our team handled negotiations with the buyer from the beginning to the end, and both sides closed the transition content they had received adequate value in the transaction.
