CORPORATE & BUSINESS
CORPORATE & BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONS.
The firm’s business practice attorneys represent clients, from individual entrepreneurs to large companies, assisting them in the navigation of the myriad of legal and regulatory issues surrounding formation and registration of businesses, including the selection of the most appropriate business structure, and the preparation of the necessary agreements relating to such organizations, such as formation and corporate governance documents, partnership agreements, operating agreements, franchise agreements, distributor agreements and employment agreements. We understand the importance of the client’s desire to minimize liability exposure, taxes and business administration burdens and the critical aspects of transferability of interests, exit strategies and long term planning. We also assist clients in acquisition and dispositions of existing business enterprises, whether through stock or asset transactions.
Our business practice includes the representation of business owners, officers and directors in respect to corporate governance issues, including advising on management duties, authority, responsibilities and succession, shareholder rights, enterprise financings and regulatory compliance. For some clients, we manage their corporate records and minutes as an ongoing service.
Our corporate practice includes clients engaged in oil and gas exploration, pipeline and transportation, real estate investment and development, construction, mining, property management, hospice, healthcare, employment and human resource companies, telecommunications, and a variety of service and material supplier industries.
