Business Formation: Unsure Of Where To Start?

Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help guide you through the business formation process. We can help you identify various considerations, including tax consequences, level of risk, liability protection and simplicity to help identify the type of entity that will help position you to achieve your objectives. When the choice of entity has been decided, we will prepare all of the documents needed for filing with the Arkansas Secretary of State and your local county.

Business Consulting: Providing Ongoing Legal Help

Once your business has been formed, we can help you create a marketing plan designed to make your company more efficient and profitable. We can help solve limited resource problems, and provide you with legal guidance based on your objectives and circumstances. We also offer a variety of general legal counsel services, including advising on legal matters related to your business, and drafting contracts and employment agreements.

Business Litigation: Being Sued? Need To File A Suit To Protect Your Business?

We are experienced in business litigation, and while no one wants to be involved in a lawsuit, sometimes it is unavoidable. We will work hard to provide your business with best defense available or to bring the strongest case against someone who owes you money.

In order to accomplish your goals, it may be best to settle quickly or to vigorously assert your claim at trial. Regardless, we will analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and provide a legal opinion geared toward your company's best interest. We will always provide you with an honest assessment and never waste our billing hours.

Business Dissolution: Partnership Dispute Or Closing Operations?

Business partners may not always agree on the best way to operate a company. If the disagreement reaches a point where finances are suffering or one member is no longer being heard, it may be necessary to seek a business dissolution. We will always work to dissolve a business as amicably as possible. However, we will also zealously represent you in litigation if a dissolution agreement cannot be reached.

In some cases, business ventures simply don't work out as planned. We can help dissolve your business and resolve any outstanding financial obligations, enabling you to move forward to the next stage of your life.

Licensing Board Defense: Have A License? Has A Complaint Been Filed?

Our attorneys have experience defending businesses and individuals with licenses against licensing boards who are investigating complaints filed against them. We will aggressively defend your license to ensure that your livelihood is protected. If successful, we can also pursue actions for false or frivolous claims made against you or your business.
