Business Formation - Including limited liability company and shareholder issues

We have years of experience forming all all kinds of business entities, including:

  • Typical C corporations
  • Small business corporations
  • Limited liability companies
  • Limited partnerships
  • Professional corporations

Jim Benjamin, the firm's transactional practice leader, was a member of the committee which drafted revisions to the Limited Liability Company Act for the State of Colorado. In addition to providing expert advice on entity selection and Colorado laws governing business formation and corporate law, our attorneys are also very familiar with other states' laws in these areas.

There are a number of issues that may arise in selecting the choice of entity type, and deciding which is the best fit for the client is made much easier with the practical and easy to understand guidance of the firms' attorneys.

Financing & Sales - Including Securities and Debt

In the course of doing business, companies may need to borrow funds, purchase another business, or sell all or part of an ongoing business, in order to achieve their business goals. This may involve stock purchase agreements or asset purchase agreements (to avoid continuing liability of the acquired company). Our attorneys have extensive experience working with various types of financing arrangements, loans, capital investments and the issues involved in buying and selling all or part of a business.

Shareholder Redemption and Buy/Sell Agreements

Owners of closely held corporations or limited liability companies may need to establish guidelines for taking on additional partners or to create contractual assurances that their ownership percentages are protected. We are experienced in advising, negotiating, and documenting buy-sell agreements, redemption agreements, and non-compete covenants.
