If you are thinking of starting a new business, or if you want to take your existing business to the next level, a Wheeler Upham business attorney will help you. We’ll explain the differences among a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a corporation, and a limited liability company, and we’ll put together with you the business entity you choose. Once you’ve set up your business, we’ll help you comply with all the necessary legal requirements--government regulations and filings, taxes, securities laws, employment laws, employee benefits--as well as providing you with assistance for buying or leasing real estate, obtaining financing, preparing buy-sell agreements among the business owners, and all the other events in the life of a closely held business. If you are buying or selling a business, or if you have a family business and you need a business succession plan to transfer operations or ownership to the next generation, you will find someone at Wheeler Upham to help you.

Wheeler Upham’s business attorneys have served as general counsel to businesses both large and small. Such representation requires an understanding of the inner workings of a client’s business and the markets in which it operates. We work closely with our clients, taking the time to discuss the nature of their business, their goals, their expectations, and their resources. Using their years of experience, our business attorneys can thus offer practical advice along with legal assistance. Our services are efficient and cost-effective, and we respond quickly to our clients’ pressing needs and concerns.
