Business and Corporate Attorneys for Growing Arizona Companies

Our business attorneys assist and counsel business owners throughout Pinal County — and out-of-state companies seeking to do business in central Arizona — in entity formation and in negotiating and documenting business transactions.

Business Entity Formation

Choosing which type of entity to form is one of the most important decisions to make when starting a business. Arizona law provides for a variety of business entity options, and each entity works differently to protect certain assets and determine tax, debt, and legal liability.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the benefits and disadvantages of each type of entity, and can advise you on which would be most appropriate for your business venture. We assist clients in forming:

We also offer strategic and operational guidance that help ensure that the type of entity selected will deliver the tax, liability protection, and other advantages that will serve the owners' interests:

  • Governance issues

  • Buy-sell agreements

  • LLC operating agreements

  • Corporate bylaws

  • Other shareholder/member/partner agreements

Business Transactions

Our attorneys negotiate, review and draft contracts to protect our clients' interests and ensure there are no ambiguities that may lead to costly misunderstandings or disputes later on. Our services include handling all aspects of:

  • Mergers and acquisitions

  • Business contracts

  • Stock purchase agreements

  • Franchising agreements

  • Real estate sale and lease agreements

We also facilitate business transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), which governs the purchase and sale of goods; leases; and negotiable instruments such as banknotes, bank deposits, funds transfers, and letters of credit. We assist vendors and buyers in preemptive planning, including negotiating deals and contracts, and helping to ensure that injured parties are placed in as good a position as if the other party had fully lived up to their obligations.
