Business Transactional

Even the smallest misunderstanding or miscommunication can snowball into a major dispute, one that leads to expensive, time-consuming litigation. Oral agreements, or even ones hashed out via email/text, often fail to consider all of the possible ways things can go sideways. An experienced business attorney can help ensure that all parties involved are operating from the same, well-written and easily-understood, page.

We can help you and your business with a very wide range of legal matters, including, without limitation:

  • Mergers & acquisitions/reorganizations;
  • Joint ventures;
  • Entity formation (LLC, corporation, partnership);
  • The purchase and sale of business assets, including goodwill;
  • The purchase and sale of entity ownership interests (corporate stock, LLC interest, etc.);
  • Drafting and reviewing corporate governance documents (resolutions, meeting minutes, etc.);
  • Equity-Owner Shareholder/Operating/Partnership) Agreements, with appropriate “buy-sell” provisions;
  • Purchase and sale of commercial real estate;
  • Draft and review commercial and residential leases;
  • Advise residential real estate investors;
  • Employment, consulting, and independent contractor agreements;
  • “Phantom stock” and other employee compensation plans;
  • Non-disclosure/non-use/confidentiality agreements;
  • Vendor agreements;
  • Client/customer/sales/services agreements;
