Business Transactions

We counsel clients in the critical aspects of forming, managing, and selling their businesses. We can assist entrepreneurs to select and form the correct organizational structure, in drafting the requisite formation documents and negotiating and drafting Buy-Sell Agreements. For existing businesses we can provide assistance with contract disputes, regulatory and compliance matters, and owner-relation issues. We work closely with our client’s officers and directors to assist them in understanding and meeting their legal responsibilities. We represent both buyers and sellers of businesses and regularly review legal documents and financial statements, assist in drafting letters of intent and formal agreements.
