Counseling Businesses For More Than 20 Years
For more than 20 years, my law practice has provided comprehensive legal support to businesses in Knoxville and throughout Tennessee. I work personally with each of my clients, taking care to understand their goals and address their concerns; the individuals I represent are never passed off to junior associates or paralegals. Rather, a seasoned business law attorney personally oversees every aspect of each case.
From business formation to contract negotiation, representation during business disputes and the sale or termination of a business interest, I can help.
Legal Support When Your Business Most Needs It
Creating a business is an exciting time. However, it is important to remember that decisions made during formation can have long-lasting impacts on the financial health of your business.
As a seasoned lawyer, I am well-versed in the nuances of business formation. I understand the short- and long-term effects today’s decisions will have on the future success of your business.
Working closely with my clients, I help them form solid business structures that provide the most beneficial tax treatment possible, while shielding partners and owners’ personal assets from future business creditors. I also draft solid operating agreements that drastically reduce the possibility of future litigation, saving business owners the time and costs of future courtroom battles.
Tennessee’s more established businesses turn to me when they need smart, solid contracts that protect their business interests. I also help my business clients obtain the best deal possible during contract negotiations.
My firm helps struggling businesses restructure their businesses for more efficient debt management. Oftentimes, a merger, or dissolution of the business, will bring in the funds necessary to pay debts owed. Liquidating assets is another method used to increase cash-flow. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is beneficial when clients need help reorganizing their debts while keeping business operations intact.
