Get peace of mind by choosing an attorney who can offer the best legal guidance for the decisions you are facing regarding:
Business law, or commercial law, relates to laws that govern business transactions of any kind between business entities (such as sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations).
A business lawyer is responsible for creating business entities, preparing all the documents required for setting up a business properly (bylaws, agreements), and creating and negotiating contracts/agreements.
The total sum of your property, both real and personal, is your estate. Estate law deals with the laws governing what will happen to your assets after you die. An estate lawyer helps with estate planning, including the writing of wills (such as living wills, declaration of last wishes, and guardianship), handling tax and property transfer issues, and addressing disability and long-term care.
Probate of Estates
After death, a person’s estate goes into what is known as probate. This process involves validating the individual’s will, identifying all assets and their value, distributing them according to the will and paying off outstanding debts.
Business formation involves choosing the appropriate business entity (such as sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations) and drafting the necessary legal documents (such as bylaws, operating agreements).
Commercial and Real Estate Transactions
The buying or selling of goods, services or property is called a commercial and/or real estate transaction. It usually involves the exchange of some form of monetary devise.
Lawyers who specialize in commercial and real estate transactions assist with structuring and negotiating contracts and agreements. With any type of commercial transaction, it is essential to establish the obligations and rights of both parties in the event of a dispute.
Business lawyers also ensure transactions are executed in accordance with federal, state and local regulations.
