Counseling business clients of all sizes begins with helping choose the correct business entity for your company. Depending on your needs and objectives, you may want to do business as a sole proprietor, a partnership (general or limited), a limited liability company or a corporation. There are many reasons for choosing one entity form over another and, together with your accountant and other professional advisors, we regularly advise our clients about the business, legal and tax consequences of each.


How the owners of a business will relate to one another and how the business will be operated must be set forth in clear, accurate and complete terms. By-laws, partnership agreements, operating agreements and shareholder agreements will provide a “road-map” for your business. Documenting these details with the guidance of competent legal counsel will often enable a business to withstand difficult times, protect the interests of both the business itself and the families of the business owners in the event of certain events such as disability, divorce, retirement or death, and to otherwise address circumstances that may not have been anticipated, such as an orderly transition upon diassociation or break up of business partners or shareholders.


All businesses, small and large, are involved in contract transactions, wither written or oral. For example, companies lease the premises where they operate and enter into agreements with their clients, customers and vendors. Owners buy and sell interests in their company. Companies enter into both simple and complex financing transactions including lines of credit, mortgage arrangements and other credit facilities. In today’s business climate, documentation of contract terms is critical. Protecting your business in the event of disputes, through proper contract drafting is essential to the success of your enterprise. What may seem to be the simplest transaction demands an understanding of the transaction and precise drafting. We bring years of experience to each transaction and can guide your company through the negotiation and documentation of each transaction.


The acquisition or sale of a business or business interest is an enormously significant undertaking with substantial financial, tax, professional and personal consequences. The successful business owner prepares for acquisition with proper professional advice to ensure due diligence is properly performed and rights are protected through appropriate contractual protections. The sale of a business or an interest therein can have lasting consequences that effect your and your families’ future livelihood in a number of ways. Ensuring appropriate buyout terms and understanding any restrictions on future business opportunities are critically important. We can assist with all of these issues to help ensure your decisions regarding business ventures achieve your goals.
