Business General Counsel

Our fathers did business by a handshake. We would like to do that too. But in today's world, doing business by the handshake leaves too much risk on the table.

A viable job, employment, manufacturing, sale, etc, contract can be the difference between a little hurt and a big hurt.

When relationships sour, the first thing to stop is the money flow. The second element is the litigation that can ensue. Having your rights protected and spelled out in advance of the fight can be the difference that makes or breaks you and your business.

A little preventative medicine goes a long way to insure the health of the business. Insuring that every party knows their rights and what is expected of them is the way the solid business relationships thrive and prosper.

We work with the owners of closely held businesses to prepare important contracts such as employment agreements for the owner-employees and key employees; non-qualified plans of deferred compensation; and buy-sell agreements between and among the owners. We also counsel the owners who are considering the sale of the assets of the business or of the stock or membership interests of the business. The tax consequences of the purchase of the shares of another owner in the event of death, disability or disagreement, are significant. The same is true of the purchase or sale of a business or real estate. We try to provide practical and innovative solutions, whether the client is the sale of his or her company or real estate, or the purchase of the company or real estate belonging to someone else. We bring special expertise to the counseling, combining sophisticated tax planning with practical business advice.
