Proper Business Formation Sets Foundation for Success

William C. Brewer & Associates, PLLC not only understands the law, but our attorneys also know firsthand the pressures and details of operating and growing a commercial enterprise. This enables the law firm of William C. Brewer & Associates to confidently and efficiently assist businesses with their legal needs.

The key for business startups is the choice of a proper entity. Attorneys consult with clients on taxes, management structure, and personal liability, and assist in advising whether to organize as a limited liability company (LLC), corporation (S-corp, C-corp), or partnership. William C. Brewer & Associates attorneys draft shareholder, partnership, or operating agreements with an eye to exit strategies, profit sharing, and other considerations.

Attention to detail is critical in business transactions. Although the firm has handled large-scale transactions and litigation for large corporations, our attorneys primarily serve small and midsized companies as they grow, change owners, and conduct day-to-day business.

The firm’s clientele also includes commercial real estate developers and construction contractors in planned unit developments, subdivisions, and condominium conversions.

William C. Brewer & Associates drafts or reviews agreements, contracts, and leases in precautionary anticipation of conflicts and with a focus on protective client solutions. Should disputes arise from a business transaction, the firm has a sound reputation as effective commercial litigation and contracts attorneys.

William Brewer has owned and operated several companies, including a 75-employee food-processing and distribution firm. With his business owner experience, in addition to practicing law for more than 35 years, he can impart insightful legal advice that protects clients and their investments.
