Business law deals with the creation, structuring and maintenance of new and existing businesses and the related issues that arise as businesses interact with the public, other companies and the federal, state and local governments.Business law attorneys specialize in transactional work, meaning they do not represent clients in court. In fact, business lawyers are often hired for their planning and negotiation skills, to avoid future litigation. The Firm’s business attorneys bring a collective experience of over 70 years of law practice to bear for our clients.
Corporate and partnership tax laws relate to the systems of income and franchise taxation used for taxing incorporated entities, LLCs, limited partnerships and other tax partnerships, including businesses and not-for-profit charities. These laws often differ from the systems for taxing individuals, and in some cases can have implications for individual taxation or the equity holders of the businesses as well. The corporate and partnership tax lawyers of the Firm work directly with our clients, their outside CPAs and in-house CFOs to assure the most tax efficient structure of the entities for both operations and potential M&A transactions.
Elder law refers to the area of legal practice pertaining to issues that affect older clients (usually those over 60 years of age). As one approaches the end of his or her life, issues related to what he or she will do with their belongings once they are gone become a greater focus. Frank Ehman brings over 10 years of experience with the U.S. Social Security Administration to the firm’s elder law and estate planning clients.
Estate planning law governs the state and federal laws, procedures and practices associated with planning for one’s estate and the orderly transfer and control of assets if he/she becomes incapacitated or deceased. Our firm’s estate planning practice also includes the probate of wills and representation of trustees in non-probate estate plans. Estate planning is useful for businesses as well as individuals. In fact, in many cases, estate planning is a necessary addition to a well-planned and well-run business.
Just as the law protects ownership of personal property and real estate, so too does the law protect the exclusive ownership and control of intangible intellectual property assets. These laws also protect against misappropriation and unauthorized use. Every business, large and small, has intellectual property assets, rights and interests. The firm’s intellectual property practice is chaired by Cami Boyd, a seasoned lawyer with over 25 years of experience handling intellectual property matters in the United States and around the world.
