TLD Law attorneys advise our clients in all types of corporate matters including formation, litigation of business disputes, ownership transfer, a company’s final dissolution, and everything in between.
Formation and Funding
TLD Law has formed hundreds of corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), and partnerships for business and individual clients. We assist with drawing up partnership agreements, including family limited partnerships, operating agreements, by-laws, and buy-sell agreements. Our work is designed to create structure and documentation to provide rules to each business owner or investor on how the business will be conducted. These agreements and documents give banks and prospective stakeholders confidence in the organization, which facilitates funding for new businesses and expansion for existing organizations.
Running the Business
Our attorneys work with in-house counsel for Fortune 1000, public companies. We counsel existing businesses of all sizes on how best to retain employees, including the use of stock bonus agreements, phantom equity plans, and stock purchase agreements. TLD Law attorneys handle shareholder agreements, subscription agreements, buy-sell agreements, structured buy-outs, sale or purchase of the business, (including advice on passing interests from one generation to the next), stock bonus agreements, and phantom equity plans through dissolution. A representation of our services includes having assisted and advised our clients with property interests, collective bargaining agreements, government regulations, and patents.
In the event of a lawsuit or other legal proceeding, we will depose witnesses if needed, work toward negotiating settlements if possible, and represent our clients in court when required.
Tax Strategies Before, During, and After
Our attorneys advise business owners and corporations on determining the correct tax and business structure for growing a business, and how best to minimize their tax burden. Part of this includes helping our clients in determining whether they might form subsidiaries, new companies, or related corporations, (like a Limited Liability Corporation, LLC) to hold real property. At dissolution or ownership transfer of the firm and its assets, we are most interested in correctly assessing and minimizing the tax ramifications of the dealings.
In all situations, we carefully research past and current laws to ensure we offer the best advice for the highest benefit for our corporate clients, their employees, investors, and stakeholders.
