Solutions & Strategies for Your Business
As experienced attorneys and business owners, we understand the many issues entrepreneurs confront when growing or transitioning their business. Our solutions and strategies help entrepreneurs address these challenges throughout the businesses life-cycle. Our areas of expertise include:
BUSINESS & CAPITAL FORMATION
We routinely help entrepreneurs select and implement the best legal entity to achieve their business goals. This helps minimize liability and tax consequences, on-board partners and investors, improve management structure and prepare their business for growth.

- Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances

Buying & Selling Businesses
Some businesses are looking to increase operating capacity and market share by acquiring strategic assets, purchasing competitors or re-capitalizing their current ownership. Other businesses are looking to sell-off excess capacity while some owners are seeking to “cash-in their chips”.
Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, our attorneys are uniquely qualified to help you evaluate your situation and create the best deal structure to accomplish your goals.
- Asset Acquisitions
- Stock/Equity Purchases
- Mergers and Reorganizations
Successful businesses depend on the accuracy and enforceability of their business agreements. Their ability to sell products and services, hire reliable employees, maintain supplier relations and increase the value of their business is dependent on the quality of their contracts and agreements.
We help you create customized, win-win agreements to maintain long-term relationships with your customers, vested employees, suppliers and independent contractors.

- Confidentiality, Non-disclosure and Non-Compete Agreements

Transition & Succession Planning
Whether you are a start-up or mature business, every entrepreneur needs to plan for their eventual succession or transition. Every transition strategy has different ownership outcomes, tax implications and pay-out requirements. As a result, it’s critical to evaluate your situation and determine the best strategy for you and your business.
Our attorneys will work with you to implement a succession or transition strategy that maximizes the value of your business and accomplishes your retirement goals.
