Business Formation and Governance

Our attorneys are ready to assist with all facets of corporate formation and operation. We routinely educate our clients on the advantages of various types of business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships. Our clients then can make informed decisions regarding the best types of entities to meet their specific needs. Our skilled attorneys prepare the necessary legal documents and counsel our clients throughout the formation process.

Once the business is formed, we are regularly called upon to advise our clients through the legal issues that arise in their businesses’ daily operations. Our attorneys work diligently to respond to our business clients’ needs, and our attorneys’ diverse legal backgrounds are a valuable resource to our clients. Whether our   clients need us to negotiate an agreement, draft a contract, handle a taxation matter, or answer employment law questions, we stand prepared to assist.

Over time, successful businesses must develop long-range plans. We are able to provide insight into the proper structuring of their succession planning, which may include a buy-sell agreement. If the time comes for a corporate merger or acquisition, we guide our clients through the numerous legal and tax issues. Over the years, we have assisted various types of businesses ranging from farming operations to start-up endeavors, and professional corporations to non-profit, tax-exempt organizations.
