Business & Agri-Business

Planning a business transaction is an important first step to its successful completion.


Our Business and Agri-Business Law Team can help you successfully plan and complete your business transaction.

You may have questions about your transaction. Will you need a company or a partnership? Will you need a written agreement with any business partners you might have? Are there any tax risks you need to plan for? These are important questions to answer whether you are going into business with an associate, friend, or family member.

We work closely with accountants to make sure you understand any tax risks you might face and to make effective plans to manage these risks.

Big businesses have in-house lawyers to help them develop, maintain and grow their businesses. Our Business Team can offer these same services to your business on an as needed basis.
