A successful business depends on establishing and maintaining a strong legal framework to promote effective operations and long-term growth. This is especially true in Vermont. We provide expert advice on important commercial issues such as business formation, liability protection, contract formation and enforcement, human resource development and dispute resolution. We represent for-profit and not-for-profit business clients both before regulatory bodies and in the courtroom, as necessary. We represent clients who want to organize, manage, transfer or exit a business. We assist our clients in choosing which business form may best meet their needs, such as a limited liability company (LLC), partnership or corporation. We endeavor to work with our clients to minimize personal liability exposure and other considerations that are advantageous or appropriate for them. We work with our clients to decide on management, ownership transfers, and profit and loss distributions. We have prepared on behalf of our clients purchase and sale agreements for stock or asset acquisitions. We offer practical solutions to our business clients and because our attorneys have operated their own businesses, we are keenly aware of the considerations and challenges facing business owners. One of our attorneys holds a masters in business administration and is particularly adept at offering practical solutions in business formation, corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions.
