Formation/Dissolution Of Business Entities

Businesses have very specific needs, and when it comes to handling legal issues, business professionals seek high-caliber legal counsel. The attorneys at Pape & Shewan, LLP, provide advice and advocacy for business professionals in California and nationwide. We are litigation attorneys with significant experience in resolving disputes and handling issues in court. We offer straightforward advice and assertive representation for our clients' business law needs.

Business Entity Formation

Starting a business venture is new and exciting. Not all business owners consider the legal ramifications if a business is not properly classified or if the business is given the wrong entity. Seeking representation of an equipped legal team at the very beginning of this process will protect the business's interests, and can ultimately eliminate costly or lengthy legal issues in the future. Our attorneys assist owners in forming limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs) and other California business entities. We have the ability to handle all legal work pertaining to business startups, including:

  • Choosing an entity
  • Drafting employment contracts
  • Drafting shareholder/partnership agreements
  • Reviewing documentation
  • Reviewing leases and real estate documents

Dissolution Of A Business Or Partnership

Not all business or business partners thrive in today's economy, and in some instances, a partnership dissolution or dissolution of a business is in all parties' best interests. Our business dissolution attorneys in Fresno work through this process step-by-step, and make it as seamless as possible. We identify areas that require attention from the onset and try to reach an amicable outcome outside court, if possible.
