Business Transactions and Formations

Whether you are buying a business, selling a business, or protecting your current business, we will guide you through the process from beginning to end.  We represent companies at all stages of the business cycle, from start-ups to mature businesses.  For new businesses, our lawyers will walk you through the often confusing array of legal issues, including corporate structuring, human resource issues, employment, trademark, copyright, and compensation arrangements.  For established companies, we assist you with everything from preparing/reviewing contracts and licenses, to mergers and acquisitions, and the sales and purchases of businesses.  In doing so, we routinely negotiate and draft the following transactional documents:

  • Asset Purchase Agreements;
  • Partnership Agreements;
  • Entity Formation Documents;
  • Buy Sell Agreements;
  • Security Agreements;
  • Promissory Notes and Guarantees;
  • Real Property Leases;
  • Equipment Leases;
  • Franchise Agreements;
  • Stock Purchase Agreements;
  • Non-Compete Agreements;
  • Independent Contractor Agreements; and
  • Joint Venture Agreements.

If you are buying a business, selling a business, or just looking to further protect your company, call us to discuss your legal options and a strategy for success.
