Serving Your Needs
We know there are challenges unique to every business, and our team is committed to providing the personal attention it takes to understand each issue you face. Our attorneys work collaboratively across practice areas to bring a comprehensive range of legal expertise and guidance to each client, and to find resolutions that best fit within your individual goals.
Businesses, Business Owners & Entrepreneurs
Business structure. Business contracts. Business litigation. Employment contracts. Shareholder agreements. Today’s business leaders face a unique set of responsibilities—not the least of which is running a successful organization. SettlePou’s attorneys serve as trusted legal advisors for the business community, helping you confront legal issues with confidence. Whether you need assistance launching a new company, protecting intellectual property, negotiating a shareholder agreement, signing a lease, or confronting a courtroom battle, we can help.
Commercial Lenders, Creditors & Banking Industry
Managing risk. Protecting assets. SettlePou provides a range of services for commercial lenders and creditors, from protecting your interests from loan inception and documentation through our Commercial Lending practice to fighting for your assets through our Creditor’s Rights & Bankruptcy practice. Our attorneys are experts in the legal issues facing commercial lenders and creditors. We have the knowledge and experience to serve as your legal advisor and partner.
Consumer Finance & Mortgage Industry
In a heavily regulated industry, consumer finance and mortgage professionals face a maze of quickly evolving local, state, and federal regulation and substantial risks. With the right legal partner, however, you can navigate this maze, mitigate your risks, and maximize your profitability.
Employers and Executives
SettlePou routinely joins with its client-employers to provide advice for hiring, disciplining, and terminating employees, managing layoffs, and conducting employment-related investigations. Further, we draft and implement workplace policies and procedures. In the event litigation results in state or federal courts or in an arbitration or regulatory tribunal, we can effectively and efficiently defend or prosecute actions involving our client-employers. Our lawyers work to ensure compliance with evolving labor and employment laws, and our focused approach seeks the best possible resolution for each client's unique set of circumstances.
Insurers, Insureds & Self-Insureds
You face risks. We help mitigate them. SettlePou has broad knowledge and extensive experience representing not only domestic and international insurance companies and syndicates and their corporate and individual insureds, but also self-insured businesses, business owners, and individuals who are faced with property and casualty claims arising from the operation of their ventures. We defend claims and lawsuits involving aviation, transportation, non-marine accidents, premises liability, industrial accidents, land titles, and more.
Nonsubscription has been around since 1913, but only recently has it begun to grow in popularity. As an employer, it’s your right to opt out of the Texas Workers’ Compensation System—and at SettlePou, we’re prepared to protect that right. With nearly 20 years of experience representing nonsubscribers, we understand the history of Texas nonsubscription law and we’re up-to-date on changes since the practice has expanded.
Outdoor Advertising Companies
Outdoor advertising companies provide big business opportunities for their clients. They also face substantial legal challenges in protecting their assets, preserving their rights, and addressing disputes. Our experienced industry attorneys are experts with a deep understanding of the legal issues that affect our clients, from eminent domain issues, to assisting in local and state governmental regulatory advice, to resolving conflicts with landowners, advertisers, and governmental entities.
