Business Attorney – Formation, Incorporation, Contracts and Operating Agreements

If you are starting a business in Georgia, the attorneys at C. David Rowe, P.C. can help you with all of the legal aspects of getting your new business up and running.  We can help you with business entity selection and formation, LLC operating agreements, tax identification numbers, and shareholders agreements.  We can also help with reviewing leases, employee and independent contractor agreements, confidentiality and non-competition agreements, start-up tax advice, and other general business start-up legal needs.

If you are looking to sell your business, we can provide advice throughout the entire process, from planning for the sale all the way through closing the deal.  We can assist with non-disclosure agreements, letters of intent, asset purchase agreements, entity purchase agreements, planning for tax consequences, purchase price allocations, seller financing, earn-out agreements, and other similar needs.

We also represent clients who desire to purchase a business, including negotiation of the letter of intent, conducting due diligence, assisting with meeting SBA and bank requirements for commercial loans, setting up new business entities, closing the transaction, and beginning operations.

We provide business succession planning services for business owners who desire to plan ahead for the succession of their businesses in the event of death, incapacity or retirement.  This is typically structured through a stand-alone buy-sell agreement or buy-sell provisions in an LLC operating agreement or shareholders agreement.  When appropriate, a family limited partnership (FLP) arrangement can be used for gifting ownership of a business entity over time to other family members.

We have experience assisting with all types of businesses, including professional practices and internet-based businesses.  We can assist with many different business agreements, contracts, leases and other documents.  We have an extensive and trusted referral network of service providers including accountants, bookkeepers, insurance agents, commercial bankers, advertising and website specialists, graphic designers, financial advisors, and many other professionals to help you get your essential business systems and relationships in place.
