Drawing on a variety of legal disciplines, including tax law, intellectual property, real estate, sales, employment and bankruptcy law, business law manages the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as businesses interact with other companies, the government and the public.
Business law focuses on many aspects of businesses, including the formation of the company, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder rights, property issues, and business entity and security matter disputes.
Before opening their doors to the public, new companies must take steps to comply with the law. Our attorneys routinely work with our clients to assist in the formation of their new business entities, and regularly consult with clients to determine the best business entity for their enterprise. We also provide guidance for companies to avoid potential legal action, relying on their expert knowledge of business law to minimize a company’s exposure to litigation and save them significantly in both time and money.
