Pease & Gustafson LLP
Business and Commercial Law in Massena NY & Potsdam NY
Since the establishment of Pease and Gustafson, the firm has dedicated much of its practice to meeting our business clients’ needs. We provide comprehensive business representation in every phase of business, including entity selection, formation, contract negotiation and preparation, corporate governance, dissolution, and representation in business disputes. We can also provide guidance in the purchase or sale of an existing business. We have advised businesses of all types including corporations, LLCs, partnerships and not-for-profits.
When establishing a new business, one of the first decisions you must make is deciding on the appropriate type of entity. This is an important decision as it will have tax and legal liability implications for you and your business. New York law provides several options, and our attorneys will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each to you.
In addition, our attorneys will assist you with preparing and filing the necessary formation documents, including shareholder, partnership and operating agreements. We can also assist you with other documentation related to your business including contracts, leases, purchase agreements, UCC Filings, non-compete agreements, and employee contracts.
Buying or Selling a Business
Business purchases or sales are complex transactions that require the attention of an experienced business attorney. Both buyer and seller should have proper representation in order to ensure that their interests are protected. We can help you draft or review purchase and ancillary agreements, advise you on the best structure for the deal, and ensure that due diligence is conducted.
