We are well versed in entity selection issues to best manage taxes, liability risk, and administrative headache. We regularly organize Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), Corporations (whether C or S) and Sole Proprietorships. Professional advice is essential to the long term success of your business.
We routinely assist clients with Asset Purchase Agreements and Stock Purchase Agreements. These contracts define the details of your purchase or sale. A detailed, carefully crafted agreement will give you peace of mind because you know exactly what you’re buying or selling and how the agreement will be carried out. A clear well thought out agreement is imperative to a successful business transaction.
A Shareholder Agreement is a contract among a corporation and its shareholders. It defines who has the right of first refusal, and provides a method for people to buy bankrupt, deceased, divorced, or incapacitated shareholder’s shares.
Don’t forget to consider business succession planning. We have clients who worked their whole lives to create a successful business. Our attorneys are well versed in the emotional, contractual, and tax issues accompanied with planning for the succession of your business.
