Business and Commercial Law:

The proper formation and operation of a business is critical to its success.  In today’s ever-changing legal environment, business owners must adapt to maintain their competitive edge.

We work closely with our clients to choose the best corporate form to protect both the interests of the business as well as the principals.  Sole Proprietors, partnerships, corporations, and limited liability companies (LLCs) each have their own specific risks and benefits. We counsel our corporate clients on the optimum form for their specific needs, prepare and file all necessary documentation to create your business, and provide compliance assistance with federal, state and local regulations.

Businesses often have multiple principals, which can present distinct challenges.  MIDLIGE RICHTER will draft partnership, shareholder or operating agreements, employee contracts, and advising you about your business’ insurance needs. 

As a business grows, we counsel the principals on ways to reorganize to maximize tax benefits, and protect their interests when making large financial decisions such as the purchase of new equipment,  commercial property, or signing a long-term lease.  We also review and draft contracts to ensure the protection of our clients during their business dealings.  When a problem does arise, we offer a host of commercial litigation services, including commercial collections, employee contract litigation, and breach of contract claims.

Business succession planning is also a critical service we provide our corporate clients.  We draft buy-sell agreements and business succession plans, which will address the business’ needs in the event of death or disability of one of the principals. 

Whether you are forming a new venture, or seeking to expand your business to increase market share, the attorneys of MIDLIGE RICHTER are committed to assisting you in taking your business to the next level
