Business Transaction Practice Overview
Are you starting a new business, expanding your current business, interested in purchasing a business, considering a joint venture with other individuals or companies, or selling your business? If so, you want an experienced attorney to help you evaluate your options, review and prepare essential documents to protect you and your business, and/or negotiate terms that meet your needs. You want a lawyer who will take the time to learn the specific goals and functions of your business and who will then help you take the right steps to protect your interests.
At Leo Shalit PC, we take a straightforward approach with our clients, clearly explaining the different options to them, as well as the potential consequences of their choices so that they can make informed decisions when deciding how to proceed. We review all aspects of the transaction to protect each client and their business from potential and future litigation issues.
The firm of Leo Shalit PC is regularly involved in the formation of corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs), commercial transactions, corporate transfers, dissolution, and litigation. We represent business owners in shareholder agreements. mergers and acquisitions, operating agreements, buy-sell agreements, and private commercial loans. The firm frequently represents purchasers and sellers of businesses. If you are purchasing or selling the shares or membership units of a business ownership entity, your rights and liabilities will be different than if you are merely purchasing or selling the assets of a business. Proper counseling and structure are imperative in order that you avoid detrimental pitfalls after the closing of the transaction.
Our firm represents business entities in all stages of growth, from small startups and emerging businesses to large and long-established business entities. Our firm acts as an ongoing transactional counselor to attend to and resolve complex issues that arise as a business grows over time.
