He serves as outside general counsel for a number of his clients, advising on strategic day-to-day corporate and business matters, as well as helping them to manage acquisitions, dispositions, financings, employment issues, contract matters, and litigation. Bram also counsels on avoidance and resolution of business disputes, with a focus on those involving business partners and family members.  Bram’s practice also encompasses advising clients on matters involving limited liability companies, partnerships and investment funds. These matters range from complex joint ventures to fund formation to closely held partnerships and LLCs, and include planning for enhanced tax treatment, equity incentives, succession issues, and pre-structured unwinding.

Bram’s clients range from mature businesses that are well-established in their industries to multi-generation family businesses to entrepreneurs starting new ventures.  Bram represents clients in transactional and general business matters across many diverse industries, including health care and medical devices;  industrial, manufacturing and distribution;  technology, software, and high-tech; entertainment, media, advertising, and public relations; real estate; packaging; and professional services.
