Starting or Reorganizing a Business?

Control planning is crucial to business formation, perhaps more important than tax planning. Ironing out the details and addressing them in writing can prevent internal disputes or provide the means to resolve them without imploding the business.

We advise on forming as a limited liability company (LLC), partnership or S corporation, walking clients through all the considerations:

  • Ownership, management and voting rights (control)
  • Terms of the operating, partnership or shareholder agreement
  • Corporate tax considerations
  • Personal liability
  • Start-up financing and growth planning
  • Exit strategies and transferability of shares

Transactions and Contracts

Our business law attorneys have handled multi-million-dollar transactions, but even a small-scale business deal can fall apart or result in future litigation. We pay attention to the details in negotiation, drafting and review of contracts and agreements for every aspect of operations:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Multi-state transactions
  • Leasing, purchases and liquidations
  • Construction contracts

Business and Commercial Litigation

We strive to resolve disputes efficiently without sacrificing our clients' interests. We explore creative and cost-effective out-of-court solutions, but you are backed by veteran trial lawyers when it's necessary to file suit or defend against an action:

  • Contract disputes with customers or suppliers
  • Real estate litigation
  • Intellectual property
  • Commercial lease disputes
  • Employment litigation (non-competes, discrimination, wage and hour)
  • Corporate and partnership dissolution
  • Other breach of contract
