Business Formation, Operation & Termination

A family is not restricted to those that are biologically related to you.  Family can come in the form of friends, teammates or other colleagues.  A family can be a business too.

Minnesota and Wisconsin each have various options for starting a business, running a business and winding it up once the business has concluded its necessary legal purposes and goals.  It is important to determine what business structure will best suit the businesses needs: a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited partnership, a corporation, a limited liability company, a limited liability limited partnership, and other forms.  The business formation that is chosen by the organizers will also have a direct impact on how and how much taxes will be paid.  Once the business is up and running it will then require a solid grasp of all laws concerning the survival of the business and how it governs its affairs. A business that is not maintaining the appropriate meetings and records will find itself in a courtroom eventually with unhappy business owners, investors or employees.

Our job is to help the fledging or experienced business navigate the myriad of laws confronting it to be successful. Our goal is to represent your business from cradle to grave, or through any series of life events in between.  Contact us today to see how we can best serve your businesses legal interests.

Real Estate

Whoever said that possession is nine-tenths of the law was apparently not thinking about real estate or land. When it comes to real estate or land title, and not possession, is king; title is everything in real estate.

Real estate transactions are an important part of life.  More often than not real estate defines what is home to a person, family or business.  Real estate transactions can include residential, commercial or recreational property. Real estate transactions are also an important part of death; how a parcel of land is titled at the death of its owner can have significant implications on how it is conveyed to others.

Proper title to the property is an essential cornerstone of any law practice.  It requires a keen attention to detail. It is our job to examine what the exact ownership status is of your property and make sure that the property is titled currently.  We can help individuals with title opinions, the review and drafting of commercial and residential leases, easements, licenses, deeds and more.
