Legal Services We Provide to Businesses
Whether you own a relatively new business, run an established company or are planning to launch a start-up, partnering with a legal expert offers myriad benefits at every stage. The business attorneys at Hunter Sargent, PLLC, are proud to offer numerous services to our clients in the Denton business community and beyond.
Every entrepreneur needs a roadmap for their business, which is exactly what comprehensive business planning is all about. After a thorough analysis of your business’s structure, operations and potential legal risks, we’ll work with you to identify issues that need to be addressed. We’ll help draft legal documents, ensure compliance, minimize tax liability and more to protect both your reputation and the bottom line.
Even if you do everything right, you’ll eventually be involved in a legal dispute—that’s just the nature of owning a business. As your legal advocate, we can help you navigate a wide range of legal obstacles, including breaches of contract, employment disputes, intellectual property disputes and disagreements over business transactions. We can also offer alternatives to litigation and help you pursue resolution through business mediation or arbitration.
Do you need help with limited liability company (LLC), corporation or partnership planning? The process of entity formation is complex and involves many steps, including finding the most appropriate structure for your company, creating legal documents and obtaining the necessary licenses and permits. You’ll also need to consider the tax implications of whatever entity you choose and how you’ll protect your personal assets from liability. We can do all of that.
Drafting Legal Agreements
Your agreements and contracts need to be airtight, which is why it’s smart to have a business attorney create and draft all your legal documents. Our business law firm tailors each legal agreement to the specific needs and objectives of the client. We deliver high-quality contracts for use between businesses and their partners, stakeholders, suppliers, customers and employees that account for every possible contingency.
Business transactions can be complex. Whether you’re involved in buying a business, selling your business or merging with another business or assets, you’ll need to go over every detail with a fine-toothed comb. Luckily, that’s our forte. Our attorneys will oversee everything from due diligence to legal contracts to regulatory compliance in order to minimize your financial risks. We’ll also provide ongoing legal support to help you navigate any issues that arise as a result of the transaction.
Business Succession Planning
Do you know what will happen to your business upon your retirement, disability or death? The best way to protect your personal interests and ensure your company’s longevity is through business succession planning. We’ll help you identify possible successors, update legal documents (including wills and trusts), minimize tax liability and provide legal support throughout the transition.
Corporate Law Services
Corporations and other business entities (including for-profit and nonprofit organizations) have more complex legal responsibilities than small businesses typically face. We offer a wide range of essential services for companies of all sizes, in all sectors, and assist with corporate governance, commercial litigation, securities regulation, mergers, acquisitions and more.
