Business Law

In bargaining, negotiating, or deal-making, John Michael Jensen is committed to helping optimize your financial position, recognize risks, and negotiate beneficial arrangements that build lasting partnerships and relationships.

However, when misunderstandings occur, or when agreements fail and controversies arise, We are also here to help you. We work with you to strategically lay out the best way to deal with the problems. Many times, as outside attorneys, we can help re-align interests, correct confusion, and help you achieve positive results even after issues arise.

When other options are not viable, we vigorously litigate issues to judgment.

In addition to other Business law, negotiations, and contracting, John Jensen has experience in (i) business formation, start-up, and capitalization issues, including Internet or on-line businesses; and (ii) fine art, museum, gallery contracts, intellectual property negotiations, and art law.

In formal administrative proceedings involving state government, John Michael Jensen has successfully litigated to judgment a variety of cases involving statutory interpretation, contract interpretation, factual scenarios, or other issues.

we have successfully prosecuted Petitions for Writs of Administrative Mandamus and Writs of Mandate. Petitions for Writs of Administrative Mandamus challenge the legal or factual underpinnings of a government decision or the government adoption of an Administrative Law Judge’s Proposed Decision. A Writ of Mandate seeks to compel a government agency or inferior tribunal to act according to the law.

Our civil appellate practice focuses on review of the lower court record, superior persuasive writing skills, and incisive analysis to illustrate our client’s position.
