Business Law Eugene & Lane County, Oregon
Each business is unique. Whether your business is already established or in the early formation stages, I meet with my clients to understand their unique situation and constraints. Then, together we will craft plans and solutions that suit your needs and protect you and your business. I also understand that businesses, especially new businesses, face financial constraints and so I work with my clients to ensure they understand their options, the costs involved, and the risks of not doing legal planning. The types of business law services I provide include: entity formation; mergers and acquisitions; and contracts.
As a business law attorney, I can assist with forming a corporation (or S-corp), limited liability company (LLC), or (in very limited circumstances) various types of partnerships. Formation includes state filings, securing a tax ID number, drafting the critical and legally required documentation, and meeting to review the formation documents with the clients.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Buying: Purchasing an existing business is an exciting time for the buyer, but purchasing an existing business can also come with great risk. Having the proper purchase documents in place is critical to protecting your investment in an existing business.
Selling: Selling your business often marks your exit from years of hard work. There are many ways to plan for the sale of your business, including succession planning to family members. Properly structuring the sale of your business can give you the legal protection you need to ensure your hard work really does pay off.
Having a properly drafted contract is critical to setting expectations in a business deal and protecting you in the event the other party does not perform. I can review and provide insight into a proposed contract or create a contract for your business deal, including creating a template that you can use in future deals.
These are just a few of the business law services available to clients. Legal services are also available for when deals go bad or disputes arise. However, proper legal documents and planning can make all the difference in avoiding emotional and expensive legal battles in the future.
