Business Law

With over 50 years of experience, the lawyers at Carter Reymann Law represent the business interests of a broad and diverse clientele through all stages of the entrepreneurial business cycle.  Whether you are in the preliminary phase of developing your company; drafting contracts (service, boilerplate or custom); hiring employees; completing leases; executing business transactions (large or small), or protecting intellectual property; our expertise paves the way for a seamless, stress-less journey.

One of the most important decisions a business owner, or a sole-proprietor, needs to make is what type of business entity they are going to form. Carter Reymann Law assists business owners in the formation of a legally sound business entity which may include the following:

  • C Corporation (Inc.)
  • S Corporation
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Partnership
  • Limited Partnership (LP)
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
  • Joint Venture

Once a business entity has been formed, our clients may require governing documents, such as articles of incorporation, operating agreements, bylaws, annual reports, financial and tax planning, private placement equity raises, and associated financing considerations.  Our firm also guides business owners in the purchase and sale of business assets and ownership interests; mergers and acquisitions of commercial enterprises; personnel and labor considerations; employee benefits, including stock plans; and other on-going business transactions.
