Business and Corporate

Our practice centers on advising individuals and closely-held entities regarding business and tax issues.  We have extensive experience in forming and counseling entrepreneurs, corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships.

Our business practice includes the following:

  • Co-packing agreements for the production of food items and beverages
  • Contract review and preparation
  • Advice regarding choice of entity
  • Employment agreements and executive compensation
  • Agreements among founders
  • Corporate buy-sell agreements
  • LLC operating agreements
  • General business law advice

Often, these situations call for an understanding of the customs and standards in the community.  There is no substitute for actual experience.

In addition, we provide counsel for:

  • Structuring limited liability companies, providing advice concerning taxation of partnerships and S corporations, and drafting and reviewing operating agreements
  • Business separations and restructurings, the purchase or sale of an interest in the business, and compensating employees with equity interests
  • Structuring real estate joint ventures, like-kind exchanges, and advising clients on tax issues

We are knowledgeable with the laws relating to partnerships, corporations, and limited liability companies.  This includes familiarity with real-life situations, tax concerns, and the theory and history behind the various forms of entities.

We also are knowledgeable about matters relating to the sale and purchase of goods, including Uniform Commercial Code issues, distribution and sales arrangements, security agreements, and financing statements.
