California Business Attorneys Advising and Assisting with the Optimum Entity Formation

Choosing the right structure for your business has long-term consequences in areas such as how the business and its owners are taxed; liability of the owners for acts of the company and vice versa; management, control and decision-making power; and transfer of ownership and business succession matters.

We take care of the procedures necessary to form and operate all of the following and more:

  • Corporation
  • Limited Partnership
  • General Partnership
  • Limited Liability Company
  • Limited Liability Partnership
  • Sole Proprietorship

Knowledgeable and Conscientious Attorneys for Business Transactions

At the heart of every business transaction lies a contract, whether oral or written, express or implied. Several factors go into making a successful transaction, including thorough knowledge and preparation, effective communication and strong negotiating skills, and the ability to carefully draft and review a document so that it accurately represents the agreement between the parties. Our business lawyers work to make sure our clients’ interests are promoted and protected across the spectrum of business transactions, including real property matters, sales & purchase agreements, leases, buy-sell agreements, insurance issues, employment agreements, and transportation and shipping matters.

Skilled Commercial Litigation Lawyers for Effective Dispute Resolution

Given the multitude of transactions which occur on a daily basis with customers, vendors, suppliers, distributors and others, disputes are bound to arise from time to time, and some of these will require legal assistance to resolve. Whether resolving a matter through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, trial or appeal, our experienced litigators look for the most cost-efficient and effective resolution that best protects our client’s immediate goals and long-term interests.

Not all business litigation involves an alleged breach of contract. We also represent parties in the multitude of business torts that can form the basis of a lawsuit, including fraud, unfair business practices, deceptive trade practices, and tortious interference with business relations. We also work to resolve disputes that arise among business partners or between shareholders, officers and directors of a corporation.
