The attorneys at Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle LLP (TLD) have counseled hundreds of corporations, LLC’s, and other business entities in all aspects of the business life cycle, from formation to Shareholder Agreements, Subscription Agreements, Buy-Sell Agreements, structured buy-out’s, sale or purchase of the business, passing interests from one generation to the next, stock bonus agreements or phantom equity plans through dissolution. TLD’s corporate attorneys are well-versed in the corporate issues which arise from running a business. We counsel business owners on the most effective ways to form a corporation, including how to capitalize the company.
We help partners in various entities to prepare partnership agreements, operating agreements, by-laws and buy-sell agreements. Each of these documents is designed to provide rules to each owner on how the business will be conducted. We counsel existing businesses on how best to retain employees, including the use of stock bonus agreements, phantom equity plans, stock purchase agreements and the like.
Determining the correct tax and business structure for growing a business is one of the most daunting decisions for a business owner to make, and normally requires the advice of competent legal and tax experts. We can assist owners in determining whether to form subsidiaries, new companies, related corporations, LLC’s to hold real property or any combination thereof.
We assist business owners in the transfer of businesses from one generation (generally the “Founder”) to a second generation (either family members or employees or some combination thereof).
If you are a business owner and would like assistance with a business law issue facing your company, please call us at one of our locations.
