Business Law

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. The Firm’s business law practice draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including (but not limited to):

Tax law
Corporate and partnership law
Intellectual property law
Real estate law
Employment law
Debtor and creditor rights law

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. Business formation of the right entity is a necessary step when opening a business and makes the business a distinct legal entity, separate and apart from its owners. There are five primary types of business formation options: limited liability company (LLC), corporation, limited partnership, general partnership and sole proprietorship.
