Business Transactions and Agreements Designed to Serve Your Business Goals
Organizations of different sizes and structures naturally have different
business needs. Our firm handles a full range of transactions for businesses
of all different forms and sizes, with each one adapted to the specific
objectives of the client.
These transactions include:
Restructuring Agreements - Including modifying or creating shareholder agreements, reorganizing
the board of directors, re-envisioning the corporate mission, buy-ins
or buyouts or shifting control and/or restructuring the governance or
operations plan of a business
Mergers and Acquisitions - The law allows for many ways to combine resources for a common business
purpose. Our firm is adept at handling the due diligence needed to complete
the transaction, drafting or reviewing sale agreements or purchase contracts,
drafting or reviewing seller non-compete agreements, and all other moving
parts in the transaction such as ownership shifts of assets and intellectual
property and other major asset purchases or sale. Our law firm is also
experienced in establishing joint-ventures.
Buy-Sell Agreements - A contractual document addressing what happens if a business owner needs
to transfer his or her interest in the company and when a business owner
can no longer be involved in the business for any number of reasons such
as death, retirement, divorce, bankruptcy, un-involvement or conflict.
Our law firm helps with establishing a company valuation method, ownership
limitations and sale conditions.
Shareholder Buy-Sell or Stock Purchase Agreements - In limited liability companies (LLCs) and other entities that are not
organized as corporations, there is often no obvious outlet for selling
or transferring shares easily. We can facilitate this through a buy-sell
or stock purchase agreement addressing items such as payment terms for
a buyout, who is eligible to purchase a shareholder's stock and how to
measure the value of the shareholders interest.
Buyouts (or Dissolution)- What happens when one or more owners of a partnership or other entity
with limitations on the circulation of shares want out? Or you want them
out? Our lawyers can help you determine whether restructuring, dissolution
of the business, or a buyout makes the most sense. And we can implement the plan.
Restriction Agreements and Separation agreements - Establishing restrictions and/or limitations on transfers of ownership
or in a separation agreement, defining the process of owner or partner
name removal from all governing documents
Real Estate Development - We assist with commercial leases, construction contracts, syndications
and a host of other issues related to real estate. This includes serving
many medical practices.
Shareholder Agreements - We regularly draft and implement shareholder agreements which define
shareholder roles, responsibilities and authority of majority and minority
shareholders, the process of removal or replacement of company officers,
voting rules, methods for resolving shareholder disputes, and the protection
and privileges of the shareholders.
Partnership agreements: For partners in a General Partnership, this type of agreement addresses
admissions and withdrawals, contributions and distributions, ownership,
responsibilities, decision making rules or authority, business dispute
resolution, governing rules for buyouts and transfers and factors surrounding
dissolution of the partnership.
Non-Compete Agreements - To prevent poaching or solicitation of clients and customers, employers
often seek to place restrictions on where someone can work after leaving
that employer. We can advise you on the enforceability of these restrictions
in employment contracts and how to protect your rights and interests.
We help our clients not only with employee non-compete agreements, but
can establish seller non-compete agreements and non-compete agreements
for executives too.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of the transactions that we can
help with. Based on your unique situation and overall business goals,
our attorneys will tailor a customized solution that fits your needs.
