Business Formation and Corporate Documents
The decisions you make from the start of your company can pave the way for its success. One of the most important first steps for any new business is properly determining and setting up an advantageous structure. Our attorneys will analyze your business’ ownership, purpose, any goods or services it intends to provide, and its goals, planned staffing and operations to advise you on creating the appropriate entity. We also work hand-in-hand with your CPA or other advisors to ensure your entity structure will allow you to take the most beneficial tax positions.
In addition to the creation of your business entity, we draft governing documents such as operating agreements, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, bylaws, company policies, employee handbooks and other documents you will need to start your business.
Once your business is formed we can help you with:
- Real Estate Acquisition and Leases
- Noncompete/Nonsolicitation/Confidentiality Agreements
- Contract Drafting and Review
- Commercial Collections
- Mechanic/Materialman/Oilfield and Other Liens
- Debt Workouts
- Joint Ventures
- Mergers & Acquisitions
- Succession and Dissolution Planning
- Employment Litigation
- Commercial Litigation
Embezzlement, Self-Dealing, Conflicts of Interest, Shareholder Oppression, Business Dissolutions, Forced Buy-Outs – When a majority or financial partner takes advantage of their position to the detriment of the company or other owners, we can help stop the unfair conduct, recover ill-gotten gains, and either fairly divide the company’s assets and dissolve it or leverage the purchase or sale of ownership interests.
