In addition, we counsel companies on business succession planning which can be of paramount importance to the small business.
  • Real Estate – The issues in a commercial real estate transaction are not the same as those that arise in residential deals. Purchase or sale negotiations and contracts, ownership structure, leases, landlord rights and responsibilities, property management and evictions are all matters on which we can counsel you.
  • Real Estate Financing – Financing your real estate acquisition or other project can be a complicated matter. We possess the expertise and experience in negotiating with brokers and financial institutions to help get your company the best deal possible.
  • Construction and Development – If your company is a developer, is remodeling an existing structure or building a new one, construction contracts that provide for foreseen and unforeseen contingencies can save you thousands of dollars and prevent delays. If terms need to be renegotiated or other problems arise, we can represent your interests to obtain a satisfactory resolution.
  • Insurance – Insurance protects you and your company’s assets in case of a lawsuit or if a particular condition or circumstance arises that causes you damages and/or loss of profits. We can ensure assist you have in obtaining the proper insurance and coverage amounts and can deal with insurers who may be reluctant to pay on a claim affecting your company or your own assets.
