“We get involved with our client’s business right from the start. Perhaps a deal looks great on paper, but in reality, it’s impractical for the client’s day-to-day operations or long-term success. We look at our client’s goals and develop creative ways to achieve them, so they have a well-rounded business succession plan with tax-efficient results.”
We’re part of your team. We regularly work with entrepreneurs, small business owners, and officers of closely-held companies. Whether we’re starting at the very beginning or helping you midway through the lifecycle of your business, we can support you. In fact, many of our clients consider us not just as outside counsel but as a key part of their business team. Starting with the foundational documents – forming of an LLC or corporation, or preparing minutes and other organizational documents, you can count on us for advice and execution.
We’ll keep your business current and in compliance. Liability is always a concern when operating a business. So it’s essential to minimize individual or parent company’s liability. We advise our clients on maintaining their corporate books and procedures to have peace of mind, knowing that their business is operating properly.
We’ll guide you and your business along the way. As your business starts to grow, we’ll see that you stay on track and are focused on your long-term goals. We’ll be there when it’s time to add new partners, find financing and investors, create efficiencies, or expand into other states if that’s the goal. Lassar & Cowhey’s attorneys will provide solid legal counsel regarding employment and consulting agreements, restructuring, reorgs, mergers, or sales or acquisitions of your company.
Other times, we’re there to offer a perspective on an issue you may be worried about. Like, “What’s going to happen to my business after I am gone?” Given our experience, we are accustomed to addressing these concerns and will work with our clients to create a succession plan that passes the business down to the next generation in the most tax-efficient way possible. We also develop strategic exit plans for the founders, including buy-sell agreements, complex operating agreements, and shareholders agreements.
When it comes down to it, what sets us apart from other corporate attorneys is our deep knowledge of the law combined with a custom solution and white-glove service.
