Corporate and Business Law

Hiring an attorney to assist with your business is one of the most important decisions you can make. Whether you are starting a new business, or need representation for a well-established corporation, we are interested in helping. Our preventive services and strategies can save thousands of dollars in the long run.

We work with our clients to determine exactly what legal services best fit their needs and their budgets. Many of our services can be done either on an hourly basis or for a flat fee. Our pricing is very competitive, but does not require the sacrifice of quality and personal attention that you and your business deserve.

We work with entrepreneurs, investors and professionals in the establishment, operation, and transition of closely-held business entities of all kinds at every stage in their evolution.

Our Law Firm Has Substantial Experience in the Following:

Our focus is on the closely-held business, where the planning emphasis is often to maximize benefits, control, flexibility, and protection for the owners and key employees. Since estate planning is one of our related areas of practice emphasis, we get deeply involved in designing and implementing business succession strategies.

We have also represented a wide variety of tax-exempt entities, including clubs, arts and other charitable organizations, foundations and religious orders. We provide our clients with all necessary legal services, including general corporate and tax advice and planning, procurement and protection of tax exempt status and attention to directors’ liability and insurance issues, regulatory matters and dealing with governmental bodies and funding sources.

Our efforts frequently involve estate planning so that business interests can be transferred at minimal tax cost, and divided ownership and liquidity problems can be avoided. In addition, we provide tax advice regarding Subchapter S corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, C corporations, personal holding companies, collapsible corporations, disguised dividends, excessive compensation and other tax–sensitive transactions.

During the initial office consultation, we will discuss and determine the type of entity best suited for your particular needs. We will then draft the appropriate documents to have you up and operating, quickly and efficiently.
