Business and Taxation

Starting a business and successfully operating that business takes skill, dedication, and drive. Regardless of the size, scope, or focus or a business, one key to its success is access to exceptional legal advice and assistance. Robinson Law provides legal representation to small, medium and large businesses and non-profit organizations from start-up through dissolution. A business venture may face a wide variety of legal challenges, including:

  • Start-up – before any business gets off the ground the groundwork must be laid. Deciding on a structure for the business (sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation) and then executing the proper legal documents to create that structure must be accomplished properly and in accordance with all local, state and federal laws.
  • Business tax planning – failing to properly plan for the myriad of tax obligations a business incurs can sink a fledgling business before it ever gets off the ground. Proper tax planning can prevent this from occurring. If the worst happens, and the business does end up with a hefty debt to the IRS, the attorneys at Robinson Law may be able to negotiate an offer of compromise for the business.
  • Business acquisitions – as a business grows it often expands. Expansion may include business acquisitions which typically entail a seemingly never-ending maze of legal documents that must be executed and filed with the proper authority.
  • Litigation – despite following all the rules and taking steps to avoid litigation, almost all businesses end up in litigation if they stay in business long enough. Litigation can be costly, both in terms of time and money. Having an experienced and skilled attorney representing the business is the key to minimizing both the time and expense of litigation.
  • Buy-out/Dissolution – at some point, the decision may be made to dissolve a business entirely or an owner/partner may wish to sell his or her interest in the business. To avoid issues after the fact, the dissolution or buy-out should be handled with the assistance of an experienced business attorney.
  • Non-profit governance – not-for-profit organizations operate under a different set of laws, rules, and regulations than for-profit businesses. Understanding, and adhering to, the non-profit laws and regulations means maximum profit for the organization

Robinson Law understands how important a business is to the owners of the business as well as to those employed by the business which is why the team at Robinson Law is dedicated to ensuring the success of the business through careful planning and ongoing legal support.
