Corporate & Business Law

Owning a business can be a rewarding experience. Our exceptional team is responsive, experienced, and efficient. We collaborate with your other advisors to ensure your legal needs are addressed, allowing you to focus on making your business the best it can be.

Whether it is a business formation (sole proprietorship, C corporation, S corporation, partnership, or disregarded entity), merger, acquisition, executive compensation plan, employee benefits plan, tax dispute, sale, or liquidation, deals are negotiated with confidence and professionalism. Because tax efficiency can be a major consideration, not only do we work closely with your tax advisors, we also have tax attorneys on our team.

Our work does not stop when the transaction has closed. To help you cost-effectively maintain corporate records, we use our dedicated team to provide detailed documentation and follow up. We are also available to serve as your registered agent to handle the annual filing with the Washington Secretary of State to prevent the inadvertent dissolution of your company. Moreover, our serving as your registered agent is “inexpensive insurance” against an accidental loss or mishandling of service of process for a lawsuit or other important legal matter.

Finally, our firm has developed a secure, efficient system to assist you in complying with the new Corporate Transparency Act which requires most privately held companies to file information reports regarding ownership and control with the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”), as well as important document changes for FinCEN compliance in your company’s organizational and other documents.
