We make it our business to understand your business. We will take the time to understand what you need so that we can make recommendations with confidence.

BUSINESS FORMATION. There are a number of important issues when forming a business entity. Should you be a sole proprietor, LLC, partnership, corporation? What other documents and agreements do you need? How will your entity be taxed? Are there any special considerations for businesses in different fields (manufacturing, service providers, medical, dental, etc.)? We can answer all of your questions regarding the formation of your business.

BUSINESS GROWTH. As a business grows, there likely will be investment, transactional, and operational matters to be considered. It is important to plan and to get sound legal counsel throughout the formation and growth of your business. Most business owners view the formation and growth of their business with the goal of an exit or succession strategy in mind. Finally, business owners must understand the tax consequences at each phase of a business life cycle. We can help with all of these issues.

BUSINESS SUCCESSION/EXIT STRATEGY. Do you have a key employee interested in buying your business? Perhaps you want to bring them in as an owner? Are you ready to retire and pass your business to your family or loved ones? Do you want to sell your business to an industry buyer, private equity, or other private parties? There are a myriad of issues and considerations when you are ready to sell or transition your business to new owners. Having experienced and competent legal advice is a must in this situation. Let us guide you through this process.

BUYING or SELLING a BUSINESS. Is the purchase or sale of a business an asset purchase or a stock purchase? Is it a cash deal or is there financing? Is there an SBA loan involved? Seller financing? Are you dealing with an unknown third party or is this a family member? Does the seller need to stay on as a consultant to ensure a smooth transition? Buying or selling a business is an important and complicated matter. This is an area of law where experience counts. Our attorneys can look out for your best interests throughout the negotiation, structuring, and closing of your business sale or acquisition.

Here are some common transactions, strategies, and documents we can help with:
