A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE; A WORLD OF OPTIONS
Certainty is the most important aspect of any business decision. Whether you are deciding to start a business, purchase or invest in a business, or partner with others to start or expand your business, the less guess work that is involved, the easier the transaction will be. You will benefit from our broad range of experience in all aspects of business transactions, from starting a business, to obtaining financing, to developing products as well as negotiating licensing, manufacturing, and/or distribution agreements, and finally developing a plan of business succession.
Members of our firm have represented companies of all sizes, from “mom-and-pop” retail establishments to start ups to publicly-traded, multi-national companies, in many sectors, including healthcare, technology, service, and retail, among others. We have represented companies as well as investors, and rendered trusted advice on significant issues across a broad spectrum of entity status and issues, including entity formations, corporate governance, and general contract drafting as well as business sales and acquisitions, private offerings and financing, securities qualifications, licensing, real estate, and other business transactions.. Regardless of the size of your business or your proposed transaction, you will receive individualized representation, designed to efficiently assist you in achieving your business objectives.
Starting a business can present a daunting and often confusing series of questions. Should I form an entity or should I maintain a sole proprietorship? If I form an entity, what type of entity should I form: a corporation?; an LL.C.?; a partnership? If I form a corporation, should I form an “S” corporation or a “C” corporation? There is no one-size-fits-all answer to these questions, and our experience at negotiating these often challenging issues will allow us to guide you to the decision that best meets your needs.
Our experience dealing with regulations, not only as those who have to deal with regulations, but also being among those who create and implement regulations, allows us to navigate the often confusing worlds of Federal, State, and Local regulatory schemes. If you are facing an issue, chances are we have faced a similar one in the past and we can assist you in breaking down the barriers that stand between you and your business objectives.
To assist with some of the entry-level questions, and to assist you in thinking about issues that you may face with your business intentions, we have developed the “Business Toolkit”, which is available free of charge. If you would like to have a free consultation to discuss your business objectives, click here or go to the “Contact Us” tab and set up an appointment.
