BUSINESS & CORPORATE LAW:
Our law firm provides experienced and knowledgeable representation to advise start-ups, small businesses and medium sized businesses throughout Massachusetts. We can provide vital assistance to almost every aspect of your business, from basic zoning and environmental compliance, to formal business incorporation and lawsuits and liability. We advise business owners on a variety of matters, including entity formation and dissolution, contract drafting and review, tax planning, structuring business sales and purchases, leasing, reorganizations, and many other areas. Whereas other attorneys will tell you what you cannot do, our clients can expect us to work hard in order to provide them with creative solutions to achieve their business goals.
Start-Ups: We apply a combination of technical legal skills and practical experience to help you make the key decisions in the formation of your business. Our business lawyers can advise you in all aspects of the start-up process, including choosing whether to form an LLC, a corporation, or another type of entity to manage your business, establishing a business capitalization plan and plan for corporate governance, drafting employee contracts and establishing compensation plans.
Tax-Planning for Business Transactions: Careful consideration of federal and state tax law is critical in structuring relationships and transactions of a business. Our tax attorneys work to legally minimize our client’s tax burden and keep them informed of new tax laws, regulations and pending litigation. Our attorneys have experience structuring and negotiating the purchase and sale of businesses, divestitures, business combinations, spin-offs and other major business transactions. Our tax practice also involves tax planning for the formation, operation and eventual liquidation of all forms of businesses.
Preventative Employment Practices: Our law firm’s attorneys assist business owners with a broad range of employment matters, including establishing workplace policies and procedures, drafting employment agreements, auditing business’ employment policies and practices and training employees. We advise clients on a full range of employment-related issues, including hiring and retention practices, discipline and discharge, sexual harassment, workplace privacy, drug testing and non-competition. Our law firm also assists clients in drafting offer letters, employment agreements, independent contractor agreements, nondisclosure and noncompetition agreements and business separation agreements.
