Corporate and Business Law

Entities and Structuring

We offer a full spectrum of business legal services for those individuals or companies investing in real estate and other commercial businesses. We counsel on organizational structuring, including the recommended form of entity, (e.g. corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, trusts and other entities). After consultation with a client about their business needs and goals, our lawyers and the client choose the type of entity that will best serve those needs and goals including tax planning. We assist clients in forming the entity under applicable state laws. We have relationships nationwide which facilitate forming these entities quickly and efficiently, while we also prepare documents for the governance and operation of these entities, further implementing the client’s needs and goals.

On an on-going basis, our lawyers counsel about day-to-day and extraordinary business issues and transactions, the preparation and review of contracts, employment issues and regulatory matters. We work with clients to limit potential risks and liabilities, while providing businesses with the appropriate entity structure to grow and succeed. Clients who have sought our assistance in this area of expertise own and operate a broad spectrum of businesses, including manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers, real estate developers and investors, private lenders, financial service companies, health care service providers, professional service companies, communication and marketing companies, and software companies.
