At TONG LAW, our vision is to provide reliable, strategic legal counsel to businesses across California. As a full-service business law firm, we recognize the immense value of having an experienced California General Counsel Attorney on your team.

General Counsels handle a company’s overall legal affairs, providing comprehensive guidance and support to navigate the complex legal landscape.

Businesses today face endless regulations, compliance requirements, risks of litigation, and decisions with major legal implications. Without proper legal advice, companies expose themselves to substantial vulnerabilities that could lead to severe consequences. Our General Counsel Attorneys fill this critical need by serving as your trusted legal advisor and confidant.

Core Competencies

General Counsel Attorneys play a crucial role in providing legal support to businesses. They serve as trusted advisors and provide guidance on various legal matters. Here are some ways in which General Counsel Attorneys can provide legal support to businesses:

Legal Advice and Business Strategy

Our business lawyers have a deep understanding of the various business entity structures in California, including corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and sole proprietorships. We advise clients on selecting the optimal structure to limit liability and maximize tax advantages. Beyond formation, we provide ongoing strategic counsel to ensure legal compliance as you grow and evolve. We craft tailored recommendations that align with your business objectives while considering all legal angles.

Contract Law

Contract law is central to our practice. We have unparalleled experience drafting, reviewing, negotiating, and enforcing all types of business contracts, including:

  • Employment Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Services Agreements
  • Vendor Agreements
  • Licensing Agreements
  • Manufacturing and Supply Agreements

Our contract lawyers adeptly handle contract disputes through litigation or alternative resolution methods like mediation and arbitration. We vigorously protect your contractual rights.


Staying compliant is a top priority and constant challenge for companies today. Our lawyers regularly review your business operations and internal policies to identify potential compliance gaps related to employment practices, safety protocols, consumer privacy, and other areas governed by California laws and regulations. We then work diligently to update company handbooks, contracts, and procedures to ensure you avoid penalties, lawsuits, and reputational damages from non-compliance. Consider us your compliance lawyers, with your interests driving all we do.


Disputes and claims are an unfortunate reality in the business world. Our litigators represent clients in all types of business and commercial litigation matters. We appear in court to defend your interests in cases involving breach of contract, fraud, misappropriation of trade secrets, employment discrimination and harassment, wrongful termination, and more. Known for our vigorous representation and trial experience, we fight to achieve optimal case resolutions.

Intellectual Property

Safeguarding intellectual property is vital for companies heavily invested in R&D and innovation. We provide comprehensive IP services, including:

  • Filing for trademarks, and copyrights
  • IP assignment and licensing agreements
  • Trade secret policies and protections
  • IP audits to identify vulnerabilities
  • Cease and desist orders for infringement

Rely on our counsel to maximize the value of your ideas and legally protect your competitive advantage.

Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management

Staying compliant with California and federal regulations across employment, tax, consumer protection, environmental, industry-specific, and other laws can be challenging. Our attorneys monitor legal developments to keep your business compliant and minimize regulatory risks. We also advise on enterprise risk assessment and mitigation strategies.

Employment Law

Our employment attorneys guide business clients on proper hiring, management, and termination policies to avoid allegations of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, or other employment-related claims. Our lawyers defend companies against claims from current/former employees, governmental agencies, and other parties.

We aim to resolve matters efficiently, from initial agency charges and negotiations to litigation if required. Additionally, we provide up-to-date guidance on wage and hour disputes, family and medical leave, accommodation, and other requirements imposed by California employment laws and regulations. Consider us your employment law partners.
