Businesses have many needs including choosing the best formation, drawing up contracts and business litigation to name just a few.

There are several different ways to structure a business varying from sole proprietorship, partnerships and various corporations. One of the most effective is a Limited Liability Company (LLC). It provides the protection of your personal assets that you need and there are tax advantages. There are fewer state regulations than for some types of corporations. Meet with one of our attorneys who will discuss the benefits of an LLC with you and decide if this is your best approach.

  • Business formation: If you are starting out in business, this is one of the most important decisions you may make. There are several factors to consider:
    • The need to protect your personal assets from liability incurred by the business.
    • Tax considerations for the various types of business structures.
    • How formal is the business and how will it be managed.
    • How will transfer of ownership interests take place.
  • Contracts: Businesses run on contracts. Contracts between employers and employees, between contractors and subcontractors, contracts with vendors, for buying and selling real estate and personal property. Whether you need a contract drafted, or need for us to review a contract before you sign it, we can help.
  • Business litigation: No matter how perfectly your contracts are drafted, or how well your business is structured, you may still become involved in a business dispute that cannot be resolved without litigation. We focus on settling disputes as quickly as possible so that your business is not interrupted.

Whatever your business needs, we are committed to always acting in your best interest, whether it is for your business formation or business litigation, whether that means settlement negotiations or taking a case to trial.
