Our Business and Commercial Law group represents established mid-sized and closely-held-organizations, as well as emerging businesses. We serve as primary outside counsel to a number of companies and supplement the legal staffs of large companies. At Harrison Sale McCloy, our strategic approach to working with business clients supports all phases of their growth and evolution and helps them define and meet their business objectives. We regularly provide advice and counsel on all types of transactional and commercial matters, including the selection of a business entity, review of financing and franchise agreements, stockholder and partnership agreements, non-competition agreements, leases, distribution and supply contracts, license and royalty agreements, real estate matters and employee issues. We recognize that tax planning goes beyond routine compliance and preparation of returns and provide advice and guidance on the tax implications associated with operations and transactions.
With respect to emerging business and entrepreneurial business planning, the firm's attorneys work in partnership with a wide range of new business endeavors, providing counsel in business planning, protection of proprietary interests, accessing capital, organization management, strategic partnering with larger firms, and government financing through economic development and government grants and contracts. We also help with succession and estate planning for owners of closely-held businesses.
