Before moving his practice to Washington, Carl Colbert was a corporate attorney. Carl began his corporate career in New York City and later practiced internationally in Hong Kong, Jakarta and Singapore. Carl still advises a variety of corporate clients in Washington with respect to corporate formation, contract drafting, review and compliance and a variety of other matters. Carl is a strong believer in the idea that proper attention to corporate formation and proper documentation of various personal and corporate interrelationships can serve to avoid needless litigation down the road, and attempts to position his corporate clients to avoid, as much as possible, litigation risk and exposure. Of course, Carl recognizes that litigation is not always avoidable, and is available to aggressively prosecute or defend his Clients' claims as they arise during the course of his corporate representation.
