Commercial & Corporate Law
Our goal is to forge long-lasting relationships with our business clients, assisting them with every type of transaction or dispute they face throughout the lifetime of their organization. For new businesses, we provide consultation on choice of entity (i.e. sole proprietorship, partnership, corporations or limited liability company), and assist in the drafting and filing of formation documents and articles of incorporation, bylaws, and operating agreements. Once a business is up and running, we assist with negotiating and drafting most types of transactional documents, including shareholder and buy-sell agreements, review of leases, stock subscription agreements, employment agreements, covenants not to compete, supplier agreements, distribution agreements, asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements, opinion letters to auditors, and nondisclosure agreements. We also assist businesses with land development and real estate matters as well as employment issues.
When a commercial dispute arises, we represent clients in federal and state court in a wide variety of business litigation matters, including shareholders’ disputes, business acquisitions, sale of businesses, vendor disputes, franchise disputes, unfair competition, unfair and deceptive trade practices, injunctions and commercial debt collections.
Our comprehensive services also include assistance with commercial compliance. We can serve as a company’s Registered Agent, prepare annual minutes, prepare and host special meetings, conduct board meetings, assist in qualifying the company to do business in required jurisdictions, obtain business licenses, obtain industry-specific licenses or registration, and prepare corporate resolutions.
