Guiding Entrepreneurs Through Entity Formation
Our business law attorneys have been counseling clients on setting up businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for more than two generations. We have extensive knowledge of the legal code and have our finger on the pulse of the Massachusetts business community. Our process is to take the time necessary to get a full understanding of the ownership group, the goals of the operation and the unique aspects of the industry that the new business will be a part of. Based on what we find, we advise our clients on whether a sole proprietorship, a partnership or a corporation is most suitable. We then explain the pros and cons of each type of entity so that our clients can be confident that they are making the right choice.
Helping Clients Resolve Business Disputes
Even the most well-run organizations using carefully drafted contracts may find themselves involved in a business dispute. Growth and success are often the sources of conflict as partners begin to disagree on the right way forward, contracts with vendors increase in number and complexity, and a growing number of employees make disagreements and disputes. Common types of business disputes that we help clients with include:
- Dissolution of partnerships
- Business disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Breach of corporate fiduciary duties
- Suits among shareholders and closely held corporations
Our goal is always to negotiate a resolution outside of the courtroom, but we are always ready to go to trial if becomes necessary.
