We offer a wide variety of services for the needs of businesses, from the formation of business entities, to the purchase and sale of existing businesses, to general small business representation, to closing services. If you are in business, or would like to be, we can help you with your business needs.
Formation of Small Business Entities
Representing business owners in the choice of, and formation of, a form of business organization that best suits their needs and plans. There are many forms of business organization that an individual business owner or a group of persons going into business together can choose from. Several of the forms of business organization afford the owner or owners with a liability shield which can protect their personal assets from claims which may potentially be made against the business.
Representing organizations engaged in charitable, scientific, or educational activities in obtaining recognition by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3), or other similar code sections as a non-taxed organization to which donations can be made and deducted by the donor. As well as representing such organizations in obtaining an exemption from sales taxes from the Colorado Department of Revenue.
Purchase and Sale of Businesses
Representing both buyers and sellers of businesses, including both asset sales and sales of stock or membership interests. That can include the negotiation and drafting of contracts, advising parties about investigations which should be undertaken and disclosures which should be made, and the drafting and review of closing documents. We often act as the escrow agent, or “closer”, for the purchase and sale of a business, even when we do not represent the buyer or seller.
General Civil Representation
Much of our practice involves the counseling and guidance of our clients away from legal problems or through legal challenges encountered in almost any aspect of the business world. We draft contracts as well as provide interpretation of contract provisions before signing. We do not handle child custody, divorce, criminal matters or personal injury, but are willing to help assist you in the search for an attorney who can help you in this regard.
