Business Law

Pauline is well versed in the formation and dissolution of various business entities, including partnerships, corporations, and LLC's, to name a few. A well drafted partnership or operating agreement is very important to ensure the business survives if there is a dispute between partners.  Additionally, Pauline has experience representing business owners in the purchase or sale of businesses. The importance of structuring a business purchase or sale to protect buyer or seller is paramount. Pauline will assist the seller to determine which type of sale is desired and what protections must be in place in case of default by buyer.  The documentation required to transfer a business is voluminous and must be completed with care. Please contact Pauline to discuss the sale or purchase of your business.

 

Business Disputes

Disputes often arise in business. Pauline will assist you in protecting your business or your interest in a business. Many business disputes end with significant harm to the business itself. Pauline will assist you in resolving the dispute without additional or unnecessary harm to the business. 

 

Landlord-Tenant & Eviction Law

Pauline has spent eleven years representing Bay Area landlords and tenants in all aspects of Landlord-Tenant law. Pauline has significant litigation experience and has appeared numerous times in superior court.  Pauline understands that settlement before trial is less costly then litigation; accordingly, and if it is in the best interest of her client, Pauline often negotiates pre-trial settlements, through open and direct communication with opposing counsel. The eviction process is complicated and can easily be derailed with simple mistakes. If you have a problematic tenant and are considering the eviction process, please contact Pauline to discuss your options. 

 

Leasing and Property Management

Pauline counsels her clients in every step of property management from initial negotiation and drafting of leases to the effective and legal management of properties, to terminating a tenancy effectively. Pauline has significant experience with all types of properties and tenants from 500,000 square foot commercial developments to single family residences. Pauline has spent many years advising large property management companies on how to implement legal policies and procedures for dealing with their tenants so as to diminish the potential of legal claims.

 

Construction Law

Pauline has experience representing owners, builders, and developers in and around large scale development projects. Pauline is a resource for title issues, environmental issues or the defense or enforcement of Mechanic’s Liens.  Pauline frequently works with state, county, or local agencies regarding the use or classification of real property at her client's request.

 

Debt Collection and Credit Repair

Pauline has experience with all phases of debt collection from initial contact with the debtor, negotiating and drafting pay-back agreements, locating assets, assessing the viability of obtaining a judgment and attaching assets for the debt owed. If you have a debt owed to you, take a moment to discuss the potential for collection. Pauline also has significant expertise representing the debtor in negotiating settlement of outstanding debts for much less than the amount outstanding and completing the subsequent repair of a debtor's credit record.
