We can assist you with creating a new business and with the issues that arise when you operate your business. We have helped business owners
- minimize exposure to personal liability through forming an entity,
- draft and negotiate contracts to clarify and memorialize their agreements,
- minimize tax exposure through maximizing the use of deductions, and
- comply with laws.
Buying (or Selling) a Business
Creating a business from scratch might not be the most economical or practical approach to making your idea come to life. Sometimes it is easier to buy an existing business. We have helped buyers determine whether to buy the assets of the business or the entity, and to negotiate favorable terms of a new lease. (We also represent sellers of businesses.)
Operating as sole proprietor or a partnership exposes you to unlimited personal liability. You can avoid this risk by creating an entity. We can assist you with forming an entity that is right for your business, which can be a C corporation, S corporation, limited liability company, or limited partnership, depending on your needs and goals.
We can help you when buying or selling residential or commercial property, refinancing your current mortgage, obtaining a loan modification, or with a short sale.
We can help you negotiate and draft a commercial lease that protects your interests. We represent landlords and tenants. For tenants, we can add value by examining building department records for the premises.
Landlord & Tenant Litigation
We represent landlords and tenants in commercial and residential summary proceedings — nonpayments and holdovers.
