Our Capabilities

Our Corporate & Partnership service area advises clients on the formation, operation, liquidation, merger, purchase, reorganization, and sale of business entities as well as day to day operational issues. This includes the selection of the best form of entity from a tax, liability, and operational standpoint; entity formation; and continued representation on matters such as employment agreements, buy-sell agreements, contracts, leases, retirement plans, and other matters related to the operation of a business.

Particular emphasis is placed on choice of entity considerations as they relate to asset protection, liability planning, taxation and operational concerns. Members of this group also work closely with the Wills, Trusts, and Estate Administration team on the formation and operation of nonprofit corporations and private foundations.
