  • Business formation including entity selection, including corporations and LLCs
  • Operating agreements
  • Shareholder and partnership agreements
  • Stock offerings
  • Employment contracts, including non-competes
  • Real estate law, including purchasing and leasing matters
  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Corporate acquisitions
  • Business breakups and business dissolutions
  • Breach of fiduciary duty situations
  • Navigating forms and procuring legal documents
  • Business liquidations
  • Finance documents
  • Intellectual property (trademark and copyright law)

Bruntrager & Billings business attorneys have also done a great deal of litigation in business breakups. When we work with new clients, we use this knowledge to help them avoid similar mistakes down the road. At Bruntrager & Billings, you will work directly with one of our partners to establish your company’s foundation or to dissolve peacefully.
