BUSINESS LAW

        From formation to operations, we take the time to understand your business needs.  We advise owners on the tax and non-tax considerations in deciding whether to operate as a sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability company, or corporation.  We draft and prepare all organizational documents and agreements.  We work with current businesses in their daily operations by drafting agreements and various business memoranda, drafting contracts, and assisting in the compliance with state and federal regulation.  We work with business owners in structuring buy-sell agreements, entity reorganizations, and stock redemptions.

BUSINESS SUCCESSION PLANNING

        Creative plans for the transfer and succession of the family business or farm.  Our main purpose is to understand the nature of the business and the client's objectives so we can develop an integrated business, tax, and estate plan that will achieve those objectives.  We counsel clients in the drafting of buy-sell agreements, drafting insurance agreements, drafting promissory notes and structuring installment sales, creating family limited liability companies, and work to structure the business in a way to minimize the owner's estate taxes.  Our goal is to make sure the business continues to thrive long after the client has left the helm.
