Business Law Experts

Choice of jurisdiction for formation

We assist in the selection of the jurisdiction in which the entity should be formed. Differing state or national laws may favor the selection of one jurisdiction over another, depending on the nature and ownership of the business and the location of business operations.

Operational Planning

Our executive background is a key differentiator from most business law practices. We assist with the establishment and continuation of effective day-to-day business practices, long-term plans, and general organizational structure. Our business lawyers are also available to advise and to assist with the every day aspects of your business, such as the set up of regular meetings and keeping the minutes.

Succession Planning – the Buy-Sell Agreement

Our firm can assist in the selection of an appropriate exit strategy for the principals. Every business owner, at some time, will want a retirement strategy to pass on the operations to a successor.

When more than one person shares ownership, exit strategies become even more important. One must think not only of ordinary retirement, but of the possibility that the owners may have a falling-out along the way, requiring one to buy out the other. The time to plan for this is during the formation; waiting until there is a falling-out can be very expensive, not to mention disruptive to the business. Setting up a well-thought-out buy-sell agreement is crucial.

Tax Planning

Last, but by no means least, there are oftentimes potential tax implications as a result of business set-up. Our business tax lawyers assist in the creation of operations, contract labor or employment relationships, and other matters that could affect the business’ after-tax income.

Professionalism: The Commitment of Our Firm

Professionalism is conduct reflecting the values embodied in the Colorado Attorney Oath of Admission, the Colorado Principles of Professionalism, and the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct. These values require attorneys always to act competently, civilly, and with integrity and to commit themselves to the public good and to furthering the interests of justice.
