Montana Business Attorneys

Are you looking to create a new business or do you already have a business with a pending legal issue? Are you buying or selling a business or facing merger and acquisition issues? Do you want to pass your business on to your children or employees?

Montana Business Attorneys At Silverman Law Office, PLLC, our business law attorney prides himself on working with clients, their accountants, insurance agents, and investment advisors, to establish the business that best suits the client’s needs.

Don’t face legal issues alone. Even issues you think would be straightforward, like buying or selling a business, facing merger and acquisition, or passing your business on to your children or employees, can be full of legal hazards. We can help you—from laying the foundation of your business to financing and structuring, implementation, operations, acquiring other businesses, selling, merging with other businesses, or even winding down your business as you prepare for a much-deserved retirement.

We’ll Help You Develop a Business Plan That Meets Your Needs

After consulting with us, you’ll walk away from our office understanding why a particular type of business best meets your legal, business, management, and tax needs, and how we can guide you through the entire life of your business. We’ll be happy to advise you on the intricacies and benefits of the following:

  • Corporations (both S and C types)
  • Family limited partnerships
  • Joint ventures
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs and PLLCs)
  • Limited liability partnerships (LLPs and PLLPs)
  • Partnerships
  • Sole proprietorships

Our Areas of Business Expertise

At Silverman Law Office, PLLC, our business law attorney can help you with almost any business matter. In addition to the above, we can aid you with:

  • Business tax planning
  • Department of Labor audits
  • Due diligence for start-ups
  • Employee issues

Whatever the issue, we’ll handle it with tact and thoroughness. We’ll always be mindful of the details, including those associated with regulatory compliance and liability.

Helping You Draft and Negotiate Contracts

In this litigious era, signing a contract can be like negotiating a minefield. Some businesses spell out every detail for their own protection; others, however, may include predatory clauses to take advantage of your inexperience. We can help you negotiate beneficial contracts for the following:

  • Business mergers and acquisitions
  • Construction
  • Employment issues
  • Equipment purchases and leases
  • Establishing operating, partnership, and shareholder agreements
  • Leasing and buying properties
  • Liability, renter’s, and protective insurance
  • Loans from financial institutions
  • Procuring special services (i.e., credit card processing)
  • Service and maintenance
  • Supplies from vendors

Every contract you sign impacts your future. Our business law attorney wants to help you make your future great, so we can grow together.

Navigating Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions require a team experienced in all aspects of buying and selling businesses, such as:

  • Evaluating and screening prospects
  • Financing
  • Negotiating
  • Strategic planning
  • Structuring
  • Streamlining the combined workforce
  • Closing the transaction

Our background in tax as well as business can help you navigate these treacherous waters so you and your family can protect what you have worked so hard to create. We believe the most critical decisions in commercial transactions are those reserved for the client and their advisors.

Our goal here is to drive the process to a successful conclusion that’s both personally and professionally satisfying as quickly as possible. We take great pains to get it just right, ensuring your full participation in both the details and decision-making through the entire process. If it’s not right for you, it’s not right for us. Just because “it’s always been done that way” isn’t a good enough reason to rush through a merger or acquisition. We’ll do it right the first time.

Personalized Attention and Tailored Business Strategies

Most importantly, no matter what we do for you, you’ll have our personal attention the whole time. We realize how important that is when you’re going through a stressful experience, so we will always take time to talk and make sure we do everything legally in our power to make your business dreams come true.
