The nature of a business takes on various shapes and sizes. For example, most U.S. businesses are created for-profit and carry with it a spirit of capitalism (entrepreneurship). There are businesses created for non-profit purposes and known for their philanthropy. Then there are investors looking to contribute their resources to existing businesses or real estate, also looking for profit, but with a more passive role. Whatever your flavor of enterprise, having a transactional lawyer is imperative to your company’s start and growth. They can help you navigate the subtle distinctions between a private foundation and a public charity or the difference between starting a business and investing in one. But perhaps the greatest value a transactional attorney provides is the peace of mind a company’s vision remains uninterrupted by regulation and litigation.

TAXATION

Tax is the first language – native tongue – of business. Whether a business is newly formed, taking on investors, considering an equipment purchase, buying or leasing a building, considering intellectual property (creating, licensing, buying, or selling it), advertising & marketing, applying for a line of credit, conducting research & development, etc., tax is the only area that applies to all of the above. More specifically, the Government is your mandatory partner in all economic and business endeavors. The good news is, the role of a tax attorney is to cut the Government as small a slice of the economic pie as possible. The true benefit and beauty of tax is revealed in the planning aspect, being as proactive as possible. However, whether you are in the tax planning stage, tax compliance & preparation stage, or tax controversy stage, having a tax attorney can oftentimes mean the difference between a business failing or not.

Intellectual property (IP) is a category of property that includes intangible creations of the human intellect. There are many types of intellectual property, and some countries recognize more than others. The most well-known types are copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets.  The main purpose of intellectual property law is to encourage the creation of a wide variety of intellectual goods. To achieve this, the law gives people and businesses property rights to the information and intellectual goods they create, usually for a limited period of time. This gives economic incentive for their creation, because it allows people to profit from the information and intellectual goods they create. These economic incentives are expected to stimulate innovation and contribute to the technological progress of countries, which depends on the extent of protection granted to innovators.

ESTATE & SUCCESSION PLANNING

Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person’s life, for the management and disposal of that person’s estate during the person’s life and at and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax. Estate planning includes planning for incapacity as well as a process of reducing or eliminating uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximizing the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. The ultimate goal of estate planning can be determined by the specific goals of the client, and may be as simple or complex as the client’s needs dictate.

Succession Planning

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing new leaders who can replace old leaders when they leave, retire or die. Succession planning increases the availability of experienced and capable employees that are prepared to assume these roles as they become available.
