CORPORATE AND BUSINESS LAW
Throughout its more than ninety year history, Carson Messinger’s primary emphasis has been advising corporate and personal clients regarding the legal aspects of owning and operating a business. We represent all types of business organizations including sole proprietorships, partnerships, joint ventures, limited liability companies and corporations.
In connection with such representation, we advise clients on the most advantageous form of ownership entity for a particular business or venture, and then prepare articles of incorporation or organization, limited liability company operating agreements, shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, joint venture agreements and related organizational documents, as appropriate. After formation we assist in the preparation of buy-sell agreements, employment contracts, minutes and other corporate resolutions, and assist in drafting and negotiating all types of business contracts. The members of the firm practicing in this area have significant experience in representing clients in corporate stock redemptions, mergers and acquisitions.
While Carson Messinger represents a number of national and regional clients, the members of the firm practicing in this area devote a significant portion of their practice to representing small business clients and counseling individuals in business matters.
