Key Industry Sectors We Serve

While most law firms spend a lot of time honing skills in their own specific practice areas, Ethos Legal Alliance does that and more. We focus on the industries in which our clients do business. By understanding and anticipating the larger spectrum of issues within an industry, we are better able to represent the unique needs of our clients and their businesses and beyond. We do this by focusing intensively on key industries in which our clients operate.

  • Financial Institutions

    Banking and Finance

    In the banking and financial services industry, Ethos Legal Alliance has earned a reputation as a preferred source of legal representation, based on our decades of work for leading institutions and our in-depth knowledge of the industry. Our work for financial organizations has taken us as far as the High Court, where we won a landmark case which clarified a depository institution’s rights in personal bankruptcy. We are especially active with our financial clients in support of their financing and investment activities, domestically, handling such matters as real estate lending, commercial lending, housing (including affordable, multifamily and for-sale single family), community development, school finance (including charter, public and private schools), asset-based lending, mezzanine lending, healthcare, tax credits (including new markets, historic and low income housing), corporate trust, bankruptcy and workouts, DIP financings, creditors’ rights, equipment leasing and finance, private banking, trade finance, and litigation.

  • Energy

    Legal practice in the energy industry involves economic, scientific, and engineering issues in a regulatory context. For instance, energy lawyers may work with companies and public utilities to handle the taxation of energy (such as “extraction taxes”), to procure licenses and ownership rights for energy-rich land, and adjudication regarding these energy rights. It is highly unlikely that consumers would consult with energy attorneys.

    Common Work of Energy Attorneys

    Energy law attorneys specialize in the energy business and work with power companies, municipal utilities, and all manner of energy producers. Much of their work involves compliance or making sure energy companies and other involved parties are following the proper laws and regulations. Since energy extraction can be quite dangerous and potentially harmful to the environment, there are numerous safety and environmental regulations.

    Additionally, energy lawyers may help energy companies secure financing and develop new projects. Energy discovery and extraction requires massive amounts of capital and often crosses international borders. Energy law attorneys also represent companies involved in litigation or arbitration.

  • Infrastructure, Mining & Commodities

    Ethos Legal Alliance is the choice of national and regional developers and contractors to provide comprehensive legal services for all types of construction and real estate development. From the building of high-end retail centers in India to the development of office parks in suburban Mumbai to the renovation and redevelopment of derelict warehouses and loft buildings in Mumbai City to the construction of personal homes, Ethos Legal Alliance lawyers offer extensive experience and valuable insights to their clients. In the construction field, we represent contractors engaged in office, residential, institutional and retail construction, including one of the nation’s largest residential builders, as well as developers, creditors committees, and building and homeowners.

  • Transport

    The lawyers of Ethos Legal Alliance have significant experience in providing a broad array of legal services required by companies in the transportation sector. Whether a company is focused on aviation, rail, marine or trucking services, the likelihood is great that Ethos Legal Alliance lawyers have successfully addressed the same issues and opportunities faced by that company.

    We are experienced in providing a full range of corporate representation to trucking companies in matters including mergers and acquisitions, financing, labor issues, closures, and bankruptcies. Our experience is extensive in representing national trucking companies and freight consolidators, and in assisting clients in dealing with collective bargaining and labor agreements.

    In the railroad industry, we frequently handle transactions for the financing of locomotives, rolling stock and related equipment, and have represented both lessors and financial institutions, domestically, in connection with equipment leasing and financing transactions.

    Similarly, we represent clients in the financing of corporate and freight aircraft, and of blue water and brown water cargo vessels. We have also provided counsel to clients in related maritime activities, such as stevedores and tug and barge operators.

  • Technology & Innovation

    Ethos Legal Alliance lawyers deliver valued counsel and representation to a spectrum of companies in information technology and telecommunications, including local and long-distance carriers, telecoms, CLECs, internet, and internet security companies, and communications and IT software enterprises. Our clients range from mid-size organizations to innovative start-ups, from long-established NSE-member giants to companies preparing for their IPO. Our work in this industry encompasses a wide range of legal and business matters, including licenses, copyrights, securities transactions, IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, hostile takeovers, bankruptcy, taxation, employment law, and ESOPs.

  • Life Sciences & Healthcare

    The health care practice of Ethos Legal Alliance is focused on serving the general business and health care law needs of both for-profit and nonprofit providers throughout the region. Our experience encompasses a full spectrum of health care provider services: teaching and community hospitals, health care systems, health care foundations, physician and provider practices, skilled nursing centers, assisted living, continuing care retirement facilities, hospices, ambulatory care, health care consultants, health care education, durable medical equipment and veterinary services. What characterizes Ethos Legal Alliance’s health care focus is our pragmatic, solutions-oriented approach to helping clients navigate problems and make the most of opportunities. While we counsel clients on the comprehensive range of legal and business issues that arise in the course of providing health care, we are especially active in counseling clients on health care regulatory law to ensure compliance with Medicaid and Medicare regulations and tax-exempt financing for health care providers.
