Handling All Your Corporate Law Needs
Choosing and Structuring Entities for New Businesses
Choosing the proper legal entities for your new business is essential. We can help you create a new business entity or convert an existing business into one of the following entities: corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company, or partnership. Depending on your chosen entity, we may need to draft partnership, shareholder, or operating agreements. In those formation documents, we also can address dissolution, liquidation, buy-sell provisions, succession planning, and tax planning should those events occur in the future.

Facilitating the Merger and Sale of Businesses
When it comes time to sell your business, we can walk you through the emotional process of selling a business you have spent years or decades growing, whether alone, with business partners or family members. We can guide you through every step of the process, from assisting with finding and vetting potential buyers, negotiating the purchase price, payment terms and other salient terms of the sale, protecting you and your business through the use of non-disclosure agreements, term sheets and letters of intent, prior to proceeding with negotiating, structuring, drafting and review of the transaction documents.
