Our attorneys plan and structure business buy-sell agreements, provide advice on negotiating and drafting shareholder, partnership, and LLC partnership agreements, represent clients in mergers and acquisitions, employment contracts, deferred compensation arrangements, business formations, reorganizations, and syndications. The firm advises clients on different methods for owning and disposing of real estate interests, including assisting clients in structuring simultaneous or deferred like-kind (non-recognition) exchanges of real estate, classifying owners as dealers or investors, and providing advice to non-U.S. citizens selling U.S. real property interests.
