Where Practical Business Judgment Merges with Legal Excellence
Whether you have a great idea for a new business venture, are the owner of a small business or just want to learn about options for your real estate holdings, there are legal issues that need to be addressed to ensure your success. At the Law Offices of James A. Littlepage, we help you achieve this goal by partnering with you to develop a thorough understanding of your business, expectations, objectives and goals. We pride ourselves on offering creative but practical legal solutions to promote your business success while ensuring that your overall estate planning goals are supported. Our goal is a long-term relationship with our business clients enabling us to meet the growing needs of their businesses while planning for tomorrow.
Many of our clients first sought our assistance with developing their estate plans, but did not realize the importance of considering the impact their business interest has on the process. Small business owners, farmers and ranchers have unique estate planning issues, especially if the business is a "family business." As the business and the estate plan are inextricably entwined, a failure of planning in one area can have disastrous consequences on the other. Through the utilization of Business Succession Planning, Buy-Sell Agreements and Employment Contracts among other tools, we can avoid such issues.
Among the many challenging decisions one must make when embarking on a new business venture, the first decision is typically the choice of business entity (Corporation, Partnership or Limited Liability Company). Our firm can advise you on all your options, and prepare and file the requisite documents to establish your business - Shareholder's Agreements, Stock Purchase Agreements, By-Laws, Partnership Agreements, Operating Agreements, Assignments and Options among others. Depending upon your circumstances, we may recommend a Buy-Sell Agreement and Employment Contracts and will advise you on a Business Succession Plan to ensure a smooth transition to the next generation after your retirement or death.
