Business and Corporate Law
Throughout the life of the business cycle, from formation through sale or dissolution, our business and corporate law attorneys provide a comprehensive range of services.
Whatever the needs may be for your current or planned business, our team of business attorneys are available to assist from advising officers and directors on fiduciary obligations and government issues, to recommendations for stock redemptions and entity reorganizations, spin-offs or split-offs.
Entity Choice, Tax and Business Planning, Finance: A host of considerations go into the type of entity a client considers forming — S or C corporation, limited liability company, partnership, limited partnership or other type of entity. We can draft and file the necessary formation documents. In addition, we provide new owners with a “users manual” for their new business, which usually includes a description of the main features of the entity’s governing documents — operating agreement, partnership agreement, bylaws — and examples of necessary periodic business reports such as shareholder resolutions or annual meeting minutes.
On-going General Counsel: Luvaas Cobb can support your business with practical day-to-day business law advice in the areas of tax, contracts, commercial transactions, real estate transactions (including acquisitions and commercial leases) and employment matters.
Business Succession Planning: A necessary part of the business planning process involves strategies for the smooth transition of the business to family members, business partners and/or key employees. Our attorneys can help clients make effective use of minority ownership discounts and provide advice with respect to closely-related tax and estate planning issues. Once we help our clients devise a business succession plan, we can help implement the plan by coordinating the drafting of buy-sell or share transfer agreements.
