BUSINESS & CORPORATE LAW

Our attorneys solve legal issues arising from business relationships. We are experienced in evaluating, handling and resolving disputes before state and federal courts as well as administrative agencies using mediation and arbitration when appropriate. We can help with business disparagement, breach of contract claims, corporate litigation, deceptive and unfair business practices, tort claims and employment claims.

Business planning services are also provided. Business Planning is the process of analyzing the client’s prospective business or existing business, and determining the proper entity – whether that be a corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company, general partnership or sole proprietorship. The key issues in determining the proper business entity involve the short-term needs of the business, the long-term goals of the owners, and weighing those factors against the tax consequences and the complexities of the selective business entity. In Utah, many times business planning also involves succession planning, which involves buy-sell restrictions and a plan for transition of the business from one generation to the next.

Sole proprietors and family-owned businesses are represented as thoroughly as larger corporations.
