Our Business Law Services

Entity Formations

For any business, one of the first and most important steps is to select and properly form an appropriate business entity. We can advise you on the benefits and drawbacks of the different options that are available, and then prepare all of the filings and other paperwork necessary to form your new entity. We regularly assist clients with regard to:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Corporations
  • Other types of business entities

Once we file the paperwork to establish your new company, there are several additional initial and ongoing steps that are required. We can assist you with everything from preparing operating agreements and shareholder agreements (to establish management and control rights and limit the owners’ liability) to drafting meeting minutes and submitting annual filings.

Contracts and Operational Matters

Most businesses deal with a number of other contracts and operational issues on a daily basis. We have experience representing a wide range of businesses, and can advise your company in aspects of its day-to-day operations. Some of the services that we regularly provide to companies of varying sizes across North Central Wisconsin include:

  • Drafting and negotiating client and vendor contracts
  • General business counseling
  • Buy/Sell agreements

A Collaborative Approach to Business Representation

When representing our business clients, we often work closely with their insurance, accounting, and other professional advisors. Having a fuller picture of your company will allow us to become more attuned to its unique legal needs. By taking this collaborative approach, we can also provide more comprehensive, efficient representation, while helping to keep issues from falling through the cracks.
