Business Organization and Management

Creating and running your own business is one of the most exciting and challenging undertakings you can experience. Decisions made early on will determine personal liabilities, tax consequences, benefits and operating structure. I can explain the options available to you and discuss the drawbacks and benefits of each type of business entity.

Clients come to attorneys at different stages of their business planning. I work with entrepreneurs who are ready to actualize their lifelong dreams. I can assist people who are looking to expand an existing business. As your business grows, you may also want to consider establishing a business succession plan to protect and preserve your important investments, for yourself and your family.

In the course of running a business, an attorney’s services are often needed to negotiate, plan, and implement a wide variety of transactions including:

  • Shareholder’s rights
  • Contracts
  • Buy-sell agreement
  • Employment agreements
  • Asset purchases & sales
  • Minority shareholder disputes
  • Stock acquisition and sales
  • Business licensing
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Business dissolution or liquidation
