Business Law

The members of our firm have a long history representing local businesses. We provide counsel with respect to making appropriate organizational decisions in establishing your business, the drafting of organizing documents and registering with the State Corporation Commission, if appropriate. In addition, once your business has begun operations, we can provide contract review and drafting services to our business clients. Our depth of business transactional and litigation experience provides our business clients with a complete experienced legal service.

Charitable Organizations

Organizing a tax-exempt charity or public service corporation requires special organizational documents for a not-for-profit entity. In addition, the Internal Revenue Service requires that these Articles contain provisions that prohibit self-dealing and restrict certain business holdings and investment decisions. The IRS also mandates that an organization applying for tax-exempt status meet certain operational criteria and submit certain forms containing a narrative plan for its operations and mission, as well as financial reports. If the organization has not begun operations, the IRS mandates that the applicant organization file a projected budget for the first two years of operations. The members of our firm can provide your organization with counsel in this unique area.
