Managing Risks While Maintaining Returns
We can help you balance your exposure to risk and return on investment. We can help you realize your dream of business ownership while preparing for the contingencies of taxable liability or lawsuit. Deciding how to structure your business is the first step. Our attorneys can help you — as the owner of a new or growing business — choose among the following business structures based on the risk assessment of your business and your relative exposure to legal and taxable liability:
- Limited liability companies (LLCs)
- Joint ventures
- Nonprofit corporations
Aggressive Business Litigation
Your business’s viability and profitability hinges on others performing their parts of the bargain. When a business transaction is not completed as planned, it is important to assert and enforce your legal right to sue. The scope of our business litigation practice encompasses:
- Loan default and collections litigation
- Breach of contract litigation
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Commercial property purchase and sale
- Equine law-related litigation
Often, parties can manage a business dispute without litigation if dealt with promptly. However, when litigation becomes necessary, you want an experienced lawyer on your side. Our lawyers offer over 70 years of collective experience and the right business perspective.
Assisting You With Transactional Business Needs
Transactions are the lifeblood of any business. Disputes between parties or contractual language that is less than clear can cost your business valuable time and money. We can help ensure that business transactions are legally sound in order to protect your company from potential litigation down the road. We can also review other transactions and stand ready to protect your valuable interests either through negotiation or litigation, if necessary.
