Counsel for Complex Transactions Throughout California

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.

Poole Shaffery provides 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.
