Whether you are executing a bet-the-company transaction or simply updating your standard employment forms, you will have the full attention of an experienced lawyer who asks the questions that haven’t occurred to you yet, who commands a whole spectrum of ways to engineer contract terms to address the issues specific to your business, and who knows how to negotiate – and how to close – to achieve your objectives.
When clients start a business, they need advice and counseling to navigate through the numerous options now available in most jurisdictions regarding business formation. Our business lawyers are well versed in the pros and cons of using corporations (S or C), limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and other entities to provide the Firm’s clients the correct mix of liability avoidance, asset protection, tax efficiency, ownership flexibility, financing arrangements, optimal structures for liquidity events, and management/governance options for their particular situations.
Once we understand a client’s future plans for the business’ growth, operations, and capital raising, we guide them in the selection of the most advantageous business entity and provide advice on the structuring of holding companies, operating companies, management companies, joint ventures, and strategic alliances.
