Santa Clarita Business Lawyers Providing Legal Counsel for Business Transactions

The operation of businesses in the ever-changing marketplace grows more and more complex. Poole & Shaffery, LLP's general counsel approach to addressing the day-to-day legal needs of clients, small to large, enhances their ability to thrive. Further, successful resolution of complex business disputes often begins with the establishment of policy and best practices in the first place. Thoughtful planning at the early stages of business formation and transaction development is critical in avoiding risk and unnecessary complications down the road. The range of business transactions on which legal services are available include:

  • Business counseling, including appropriate choice of business entity;
  • Formation, structure, practice and governance of business entities, including corporations (profit and non-profit), joint ventures, limited liability companies, and partnerships;
  • Buy-sell, shareholder and other joint business owner agreements;
  • Business finance, including secured and unsecured loans and equity financings;
  • Purchase, sale and merger transactions
  • Creation and operation of distributorships and franchises;
  • Advisory services pertaining to, and preparation of, business contracts;
  • Governmental compliance representation;
  • Labor and employment services, including employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, non-competition agreements and trade secret protection;
  • Legal and strategic planning, including succession planning;
  • Intellectual property creation and preservation;
  • Intellectual property licensing, divestment, acquisition and development agreements.

The Santa Clarita business lawyers at the firm can manage all matters related to the formation of the correct business entity, and the drafting and negotiating of critical documents such as operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and partnership agreements. If the transaction is related to a merger, consolidation, conversion or dissolution, your enterprise will be represented by a firm with a great depth of knowledge in all of these matters, and a background and history in successfully representing clients in complex business transactions.

At the firm, counsel can engage in a due diligence review of the pertinent information impacting the viability and potential risk in any transaction, whether real estate purchase or sale, a merger of business enterprises, the acquisition of a business entity or the licensing of any product, service or process. This advance investigation prior to consummating agreements with another business entity can minimize potential disputes, helping to avoid the slow-moving civil court system and the potential disruption of a client's operation and advancement of its business.

The Santa Clarita business attorneys at Poole & Shaffery, LLP provide professional legal services in transactional law, and represent corporations, closely-held entities, LLCs, partnerships, joint ventures, and other commercial enterprises, as well as non-profits.
