Business & Personal Lawyers for Eastern North Carolina

Business & Corporate Law

The firm handles a wide variety of business needs as a primary part of our practice. Our attorneys advise clients interested in organizing or restructuring a business, from the inception of the business through termination of the business enterprise, with attention to personal and business asset protection, federal and state tax considerations, and the relationship of the owners. The firm advises both employers and employees on employment matters, including relationships with key employees and with regular staff personnel.

The firm represents businesses regularly in numerous corporate issues, ranging from the structure of relationships with other businesses or entities in the ordinary course of business, to disputes with third parties, to business combinations such as mergers and acquisitions.

As our area of the state is dominated by closely held businesses, the firm has extensive experience dealing with relationships among owners, both from a structuring standpoint upon inception of a business or admission/withdrawal of a new owner, to representing one party when disputes arise among owners. In family-owned businesses, which represent a significant part of the firm's practice, careful attention should be given to succession issues, and the firm's corporate and estate planning attorneys regularly advise families on the issues they should consider when planning the long-term continuation and success of their business.

A key part of successfully structuring a business enterprise is the maintenance of that enterprise to assure the continuation of the benefits intended at the time the business is organized. The majority of the businesses that the firm represents regularly seek advice from the firm for planning and any other issues they encounter through the course of their existence.
