Business Law

The Small Business Administration estimates that there are at least 27.9 million small businesses in the United States. The Tax Foundation found that the U.S. has an estimated 1.7 million C corporations, 7.4 million partnerships and S corporations, and 23 million sole proprietorships. If there were ever any doubt, these numbers make it clear that business is such a big part of what drives our nation.

Business Formation & Disputes

Once you have your business idea, your next step is determining how to legally register that business. This initial decision will have lasting implications, making it vital that you make the right choice for your business needs. We’ll guide you through the differences, advantages, and considerations for each of the business types:

  • Sole Proprietorship
  • General Partnership
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
  • C Corporation (C Corp)
  • S Corporation (S Corporation)
  • Doing Business As (DBA)

Similarly, when you need help settling a business dispute — whether that’s with another business, with a client, or internally between partners — don’t try to go this process alone. We’re the trusted business advisors you need during this time.

Commercial Real Estate

Like residential real estate, hundreds of commercial real estate transactions take place every day. Unlike residential real estate, commercial transactions are much more complex and often affect more than just the direct buyer and seller — generally, they affect employees, investors, and even the local community. Don’t make the mistake of signing a single contract without first consulting with a business attorney.

Construction Law

While the term “construction” typically evokes images of people working hard to create a structure, it is so, so much more than that. When you’re in need of a construction law attorney, you’re about to deal with issues such as contract law, planning and approvals, employment law, workers’ compensation, torts, property law, dispute resolution, occupational safety, and — when necessary — business litigation.

Oil & Gas Law

Oil and gas regulations in America are unique because, contrary to many other countries, oil and gas are privately owned. This poses unique challenges to operating an oil and gas company, bringing up issues such as leases, ownership, jurisdiction, business contracts, and regulation compliance. Our attorney can inform you on the processes you’re expected to follow and defend you in the event that a dispute or lawsuit arises.
