Attorney At Law

Providing personalized quality legal services for decades

North Carolina Business Lawyer


Starting, acquiring or optimizing any enterprise requires having a knowledgeable team. A business lawyer is a critical advisor to any successful businessman. Our office will effectively assist you with every step of business life to insure you’re making well-informed decisions.


Business Formation:

We can help you with the legal aspects at a business' inception by creating the right entity, whether it be a Corporation, a Limited Liability Company (LLC), or another type of entity.  Choosing the right entity is essential for maximizing asset protection, tax benefits, and retirement and heath insurance planning.  The decision should always be made with proper input from both an accountant and a lawyer.  We will then guide you through the legal requirements that apply to your specific situation. This often includes leveraging our expertise in Commercial Real Estate acquisition or leasing. We have the experience to counsel you on what options you have under the law so that you can make educated decisions.


Multi-Owner Corporations:

Many businesses are owned by more than one person and proper agreements between such owners on their business relationship will benefit them and their business throughout its life and even in winding things down when needed or desired.  We will help the owners address issues such as profit sharing arrangements, retirement or death of an owner, buy/sell agreements, and many other unique situations.
