Corporate and Business Law:

Denuble Law provides advice in choosing the best, most advantageous entity structure based on the nature of the business, local and international regulations, and tax strategies. Our services include assistance on the initial formation of domestic and off-shore legal entities, drafting by-laws and operating agreements, shareholders agreements, business transaction agreements, tax compliance, government registrations and licenses, mergers and acquisitions, and dissolution and liquidation of the Entities.

Contract Law / Commercial Law:

Denuble Law provides comprehensive legal service throughout a contract’s full life cycle. From the initial draft to the final negotiations and execution, our firm provides counsel on a wide-variety of contracts and agreements, including: purchase and sale of businesses, commercial leases, franchise, distribution, licensing, commercial agency, consulting service, non-compete, and domestic/international goods and services transactions.

Residential and Commercial Real Estate Law:

Real estate laws can be complex and difficult to navigate for foreign companies and individuals. Denuble Law represents foreign and domestic sellers and buyers on residential and commercial real estate transactions in New York.

Business Immigration and Cross-Border Employment :

All countries place limitations on the rights of foreign nationals to enter, live and work within their boundaries, restricting the talent pool for many multi-national companies, who rely on foreigners with critical skills for their business’s success. Denuble Law provides advice in maneuvering the complex array of rules, visa regulations, registrations, reporting requirements, and procedures that dictate a worker’s ability to work in a foreign country. Denuble’s guidance in international estate planning, employment and immigration law provides a company with a more flexible and mobile workforce.

The firm provides counsel and prepares applications to the U.S. immigration authorities without limitations to the following non-immigrant visas:

B-1 (Business visitor)
E-1 (Treaty trader)
E-2 (Treaty investor)
H-1B (Specialty occupations in fields requiring highly specialized knowledge)
H-2 (Temporary workers)
L-1 (Intra-company transferees)
O-1 (Foreign national with extraordinary ability in Sciences, Arts, Education, Business, or Athletics)

We also provide advice to foreign nationals who pursue Lawful Permanent Residency in the United States, throughout employment-based sponsorship and investment.
