Business Law & Real Estate Law

Business and Law Are Deeply Intertwined

For any successful business, there are many elements of the business that involve the law. From deciding on the legal form your business, to planning on how you will provide for the sale or transition of your business ownership to a buyer or to a second generation, right down to the language of your contracts, the law plays a significant role in the success of your business.

Developing a strong working relationship with a business lawyer can help assure the legal elements of your business are appropriate and serve your goals. James Law Firm, P.L.L.C., can help. Our attorney is very experienced with business law, having worked as general counsel for a chemical company and a construction company.

James Law Firm, P.L.L.C., can assist your business with:

  • Business formation, including corporations, LLCs and partnerships
  • Business transactions and contracts
  • Mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures
  • Buying and selling of a business
  • Drafting company and partnership agreements
  • Tax compliance and planning
  • Function as in-house counsel
