Both principals of this Firm involve themselves in all aspects of the law confronting businesses and their owners. We are involved in helping clients select the proper legal entities for new enterprises, working with lenders and others to finance ongoing businesses, planning for the ultimate succession in family businesses, as well as negotiating the wide variety of issues confronting modern business.
Day to Day Advice, Ongoing Compliance and Business Transactions. In these complex times businesses need legal advice on a variety of issues as they arise. Every business should have access to experienced and knowledgeable attorneys to assist them in forming new business entities, negotiating transactions, obtaining financing and staying in compliance with the laws and rules that apply to each particular business. Businesses also need lawyers knowledgeable about their business when it is time to buy a new entity, sell the business or transition the business to a new generation. Our lawyers have the expertise to assist and advise in all of these areas.
Taxation of Businesses. With the changes in corporate and individual income tax rates combined with the ease with which businesses can utilize a wide variety of business entities to achieve growth and minimize taxation, our attorneys are involved in analyzing and advising on the tax impacts of not only traditional corporate settings but, to an increasing degree, the complexities of partnership taxation as applied to a variety of entities including limited liability companies, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and multi-tiered partnerships.
Employment Defense and Human Resources Advice. As governmental involvement with more businesses has increased, we have dealt with and become familiar with dealing with the myriad of employment issues confronting employers including issues dealing with discrimination, immigration law compliance, restrictive covenants, separation agreements and others.
