Nick advises clients during all stages of issues so that every person can know they can always come to him for services.

Nick Heimlich Law is providing San Mateo with a number of different services and we want to provide you with a detailed description of each so that you know if it’s right for you.

Nick Heimlich has three main areas of practice:

Business Formation

As a San Mateo business attorney, Nick Heimlich identifies with many potential clients wondering if whether they should incorporate the possible benefits or downsides of incorporation. Not only that, he helps you on how to set up your corporation or LLC and under which state to set up your corporation.

Think about this: Where will your corporation physically be headquartered? If your business is virtual, then your thought should be around where the individual persons reside? A second factor is taxes. Each state has a different set of rules for corporate taxation. Do you intend to keep profits entirely in the company, raise venture capital, distribute any profits; these all can affect your decision of where and how you form your company. Let a knowledgeable CPA advise you.

A third factor is the intended business and projected revenue and expenses for the next two to three years.

If you form a corporation or a limited liability company and keep it separate from your personal finances, then you may be able to protect your personal assets from corporate debts or obligations. As we’ve seen before, people didn’t protect their personal finances with their business and their business debt affected their personal assets.

One should consider what potential liability one might have. Different types of businesses tend to have different exposures. For example, shareholders/owners having disputes, and with incorporation, it can help detail what the owners are actually obligated to do. Another source of exposure is with employees/contractors that provide services. Clarify potential liability with advice regarding employees, contractors, and payments. However, despite trying to review potential exposure, no corporate attorney can guarantee that you won’t have a legal claim if you’re operating a business.

Our Business Law/Corporate Advising are in the following:

  • Entity Selection (Corporation, LLP/LLC, S-Corporation)
  • Corporate Governance
  • Business sales and asset purchase agreements
  • Shareholder/Founder/Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Franchise agreements
  • Lease

Civil Litigation/Dispute Resolution

Nick Heimlich Law covers a wide range of services within this area that San Mateo can benefit from. This is one litigation lawyer in San Mateo who has experience in many cases dealing with breach of contract, collections, franchise law, and so on.

  • Breach of Contract – We will discuss the matter in detail with the client before the client can make the decision of whether a lawsuit or arbitration is the right next step to take. If the opposing party is completely unresponsive, then a lawsuit or arbitration may be necessary. No matter what, we represent people that want to defend or enforce their contracts.
  • Collections – A San Mateo litigation lawyer should advise you on how to deal with customers refusing to pay and how to minimize or avoid accruing accounts receivables. We can advise you whether a lawsuit, negotiation, or correspondence can be used to help address unpaid accounts.
  • Business/Partner and Real Estate Disputes – Whether it’s a business or partnership dispute, your choice of business attorney influences whether the situation progresses constructively, or the situation aggravates and additional problems arise. Another point of contention is an officer’s salaries and benefits. People should consider whether the salary and benefits are reasonable for the industry and company and document the basis of any decision. Open communication is key to be able to progress forward.
  • Franchise Law and Litigation – A franchise dispute attorney review of the Franchise Agreement and the Franchise Disclosure Document is highly recommended. A Franchise Disclosure Document in California provides a wealth of information regarding a franchise if you are considering purchasing a franchise and you need someone to thoroughly review every detail.
  • Fraud – Fraud can come in many different forms but the consequences can really hurt both parties. A San Mateo business attorney can work with you to asses the damages and help find ways to recoup with company losses. Many successful business can fail solely due to mismanagement of funds because the business is unaware it’s happening.

Nick Heimlich Law can tell you what he can do for you, but he can also show you. He has driven advocacy and proven results that provide evidence of such. For example, this San Mateo business attorney assisted a hotel owner in Minnesota settle a franchise dispute with a publicly-traded billion dollar hotel company. Through legal research of Minnesota franchise law and similar franchise disputes, he was able to settle the case for $1 million less than the original demand without litigation.

Trademarks/ Intellectual Property

  • Trademark Filing – At the San Mateo Law Offices of Nick Heimlich, we can help you file for trademarks of your goods or products. We help from the filing to registration with the United States Trademark Office. Should your company have global ambitions, we can also contact foreign associates in other countries to obtain a quote for such services.
  • Trademark Litigation – After creating a unique product or service, it’s critical to protect it. Customers expect a trademark to have consistent value and quality; if your competitors are allowed to copy your trademark, the value of your trademark is diminished. We provide the best strategies with a trademark dispute and protect it against infringers.
  • Website Disputes – The web occupies much of our time and we sometimes forget how powerful the web is because we control it with such ease. Nick Heimlich has advised companies regarding trademark disputes, copyright infringement as the look and feel of the website, initial interest confusion, and many more.

Avoiding issues when it comes to websites is critical because of how complex and confusing a website as a property can be. Sometimes competitors will copy a website and then attempt to divert the customers to a different website. There are two avenues to take if this were to happen – in court and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). There are more cooperative methods of trying to resolve it but a take-down notice could be done to try to have these websites taken down because of infringement.

As the World Wide Web grows, so do many more companies sprouting and trying to get a piece of the niche that you may be in. Protect yourself and get prompt advice from your San Mateo business attorney to minimize and find ways to deal with issues as they come up.

This was the first time ever needing a lawyer for something, I was a bit frantic and overwhelmed with everything going on, but Nick and his team were very professional and honest, and made me feel at ease about my case. They were even professional and cool with the opposing attorney even though she was being unprofessional at times. In the end, they were able to settle my case and bring me a satisfying outcome. If you're ever in a bind and need a business lawyer, I highly recommend Nick and his team.

Mr Heimlich was very professional kind and knowledgeable when I give him a call. I was calling to hire an attorney for an tenant and landlord dispute. I had a particular issue that Mr Heimlich took time to completely listen to me. unfortunately the area I needed help was not an area that Mr Nick practiced. but he was not hesitant to give me some leads and direct me to the right place. he's a man of character and cares about what he does, I can only imagine his level of excellence in his area of expertise. he's a man of great character and I would recommend him for anyone to give him a call and talk to him. thank you very much Nick. thank you for caring .

I entered into a membership contract that had unreasonable cancellation requirements. I went to Nick through my company’s employee assistance program. Nick did thorough research and found that the contract term exceeded term limits allowed by California law. As a result, I was able to cancel the contract without any penalty. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

My family cannot thank Nick enough. We needed a business litigation attorney for a lawsuit that was going to trial, he not only took the time to understand the complexities of the case but was able to convey that to the judge. He was able to get us amazing results. Hands down the best attorney we have ever worked with.
