When you are trying to run a business or complete a real estate transaction, you need legal assistance you can depend on. At Schmiesing, Blied, Stoddart & Mackey, we take the time to learn about our clients and their goals, which puts us in a good position to respond to new legal challenges as they arise.
Whether you are negotiating a business contract, seeking a zoning variance, developing employment policies or taking any other business or real estate action, we are here to help. Contact us at our main office in Orange County, California, to discuss your legal needs.
Here for Your Business at Every Stage
If you are starting a new business, we can help you determine which of the business forms available under California and federal law — including the corporation, the partnership, the limited liability company (LLC) and the S corporation — is best for your individual circumstances.
We can also help you negotiate and draft the agreements and contracts that define the relationships between those with a stake in your business. We can help form buy-sell agreements, operating agreements and shareholder agreements.
As you face day-to-day legal issues in the running of your business, our attorneys are here for you. We can help your business with issues on an ongoing basis including employment contracts and policies, long-term strategic planning, tax issues, customer and supplier agreements, contractor agreements, real estate contracts, secured financing arrangements and licensing or distribution agreements.
If your business is closely held, we can advise you on estate planning and tax planning with an eye toward protecting you, your business and your family from unnecessary liability and uncertainty concerning business succession.
When you need skilled counsel on business formation, perfection and contracts in Orange County or the Inland Empire, don't hesitate to contact us.
