We handle formation of entities such as corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability companies (LLCs).
  • Ongoing business transactions: We meet the ongoing legal needs of businesses in the areas of company mergers and acquisitions, stock sales, asset sales, buy-sell agreements, cross-purchase programs, entity purchase programs, business reorganizations and sales contracts.
  • Business litigation: Our firm protects the rights of business owners involved in business disputes, breach of contract claims, creditor actions, business dissolutions and more. We participate in mediation, arbitration and litigation, pursuing the method most pertinent to your situation.
  • Family business reorganizations: Our lawyers frequently represent family farms of significant wealth. Farms often involve multi-generational relationships. We can guide you and your family through farm reorganizations, restructuring and spinoffs. This is often done in partnership with our estate planning services, which focus heavily on wealth transfer.
