Business Law & Corporate Law


In today’s complex business world, it is imperative that clients be fully informed and aware of the legal implications of the decisions they make.

Our attorneys regularly assist businesses of all sizes in business law matters. We have substantial experience in both the transactional and litigation components of business law with regard to corporations, limited liability companies and partnerships. Our representation involves assisting these businesses with start-up and formation, organizational and structural guidance, preparation of bylaws and shareholder agreements, contract disputes, general counsel, expansion, acquisition, and dissolution wind-up.

The Limited Liability Company (“LLC”) has become the entity of choice for many small business owners and real estate investors, over tradition Sub-chapter S-Corporations or Sub-chapter C-Corporations. Our  business attorneys provide a basic but thorough understanding of the various options available for Colorado business entity selection including the pros and cons of choosing an LLC over a Sub S Corporation for tax purposes. Our Douglas County business attorneys advise clients throughout Colorado on setting up and organizing the Corporation or LLC including an analysis of the single versus multi member LLC and the manager managed versus member managed LLC.
