We offer legal assistance in buying, selling, leasing and developing real estate. We also help clients negotiate and draft contracts for construction or remodeling of homes, offices and warehouses.
ESTATE PLANNING AND PROBATE
Our firm offers services in connection with estate planning and the probate of one’s last will and testament in court. For clients with large estates, proper planning can save significant sums of money in estate, gift and/or inheritance taxes. In those circumstances we may work closely with other counsel that specialize in estate and tax planning matters. Our personal knowledge of our client’s business and personal needs can be invaluable in the planning process and insuring that subsequent transactions remain consistent with the plan. If they have not done so, we encourage all clients to see an attorney, whether at our firm or not, to make the necessary plans and prepare the correct legal documents to be used in the event of serious or incapacitating illness, as well as death.
CORPORATION AND BUSINESS LAW
We offer legal counsel to entrepreneurs and existing companies in virtually all legal aspects of operating a business from start up to exit strategies. We help clients with choosing a form of business entity, and buying, selling or merging with other businesses. We also advise clients in the many legal and business issues that arise in the course of operating a successful enterprise. This area of practice also frequently involves aspects of employment law, financing arrangements, and intellectual property law.
