Gagen McCoy counsels our clients on cost-effective solutions to what are frequently difficult and complicated matters, and we provide the level of expertise necessary for practical and efficient problem solving. We represent individuals and business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, general partnerships, limited partnerships, joint ventures and sole proprietorships, on a wide range of business issues.

Our clients include both businesses that primarily focus their activities in the San Francisco Bay area and others that are extensively involved in international transactions. Our attorneys have the experience base necessary to quickly identify a range of solutions for the client to weigh and consider, and the ability to then help implement the selected course of action. In a recent survey, the leading concern among business people was that their attorneys were either too expensive, too slow, or failed to understand the importance of getting the transaction done. We pride ourselves on our ability to apply the right set of legal resources to the problem presented, and to get the job done quickly, correctly and at a reasonable cost.

We regularly work on the following types of matters:

  • Counseling on issues relating to contract formation and contract interpretation
  • Business relationships and counseling
  • Strategic planning
  • Reorganizations
  • Assets and stock acquisitions
  • Trade secret and unfair competition matters
  • Employment, including wrongful termination, harassment and policy manual drafting and revision
  • Compensation incentives and executive contracts
  • Breach of contract
  • Real estate contracts
  • State licensing requirements

Our attorneys also offer a unique set of services to California school administrators throughout the State of California who are regularly referred to us by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) and by other school administrators and school districts with whom we have had previous contact.


No matter the scope or nature of your legal problem, our firm offers experienced, effective legal representation by professionals you know and trust.
