Our experienced business attorneys will take care of the many complex legal issues and liabilities related to operations, regulations, agreements or transactions, so you can do what you do best.
Any business, big or small has many moving parts and should be scrutinized closely from a legal perspective to ensure operations run smoothly at all times. Whether you are an individual starting up a new business or a company with years of experience, it is imperative that you have an experienced business attorney who will take the time to understand your individual business needs. These are some of the key areas in which we specialize:
Business Entity Startups
Properly structuring your business from the beginning can yield significant financial benefits, as well as protect you from unforeseen liabilities down the road. Our skilled business law team will advise on the benefits and alternatives of incorporation, formation of limited liability companies and partnerships, as well as business structuring, protection of intellectual property, and many other issues relating to the security of your business interests.
A buy-sell agreement is a binding contract between business partners about the future ownership of the business should one partner want to leave the business, goes bankrupt, gets divorced or dies. Negotiating a buy-sell a partner buyout agreement with an experienced business lawyer is critical to protect the investments of all involved when forming a partnership.
Business Disputes / Corporate Dissolution
For a variety of reasons both personal and professional, business relationships don’t always work out the way the parties originally expected and can become unmanageable. Our experienced business dispute lawyers can provide guidance and representation to manage a dispute with a business partner, arrange a corporate divorce (corporate dissolution), or to dissolve a business entirely.
Mergers & Acquisitions
A merger or acquisition between two
companies can be a financially beneficial endeavor.
However, without proper legal representation throughout the process, mistakes can be made which could affect the company years down the road and be very costly. Our business merger attorneys will help to advise and navigate financial and tax implications, protection of property and real estate management throughout the merger or acquisition process.
Non-Profit / Tax-Exempt Organizations
Just like any other business, non-profit and tax-exempt businesses have a myriad of legal and financial issues. Our non-profit business lawyers have decades of experience counselling nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, churches, and government entities. Whether it is assistance in drafting an article of incorporation, guidance from our tax attorneys for proper tax filings or providing counsel on corporate governance issues, we can help you to start off on the right foot.
