Commercial and Business Law Attorney in Fairfield County
Experienced Stamford Business Law Attorney
Behind every successful business, there is good planning. This planning includes setting up an adequate legal entity that protects the business and ongoing monitoring of business activities to ensure compliance with state and local laws.
At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we provide competent legal representation relating to corporate transactions, business entity formation, contractual and business disputes, and commercial financing.
Experienced Corporate Transactions Attorney
Our law office has experience handling most corporate transactions, including the sale or purchase of a business, mergers and acquisitions, business dissolutions, and drafting operating, partnership and shareholder agreements.
Business Entity Formation
Each business is unique and the legal entity of the business dependents on factors like risk appetite, capital needs and the ownership structure.
Corporations are appealing because they protect the shareholders (owners) from personal liability. That is, plaintiffs in a legal suit, generally, can only claim corporate assets if a corporation has the required “corporate formalities,” in place.
Limited Liability Companies
Limited liability companies (“LLCs”), like corporations, shield owners from individual liability, however, they are less rigid than corporations are, and have fewer rules that owners must follow.
Sole proprietorships are the simplest form of business structure, usually requiring only a simple filing with the State and no additional formalities. However, sole proprietorships are the riskiest business structure.
Experienced Contractual and Business Disputes Attorney
After setting up a business, its owners must protect it. This includes having an experienced attorney draft contracts that anticipate issues with vendors and employees. Protecting your business is important, because even the best planning cannot prevent someone from suing. Proper planning, however, can reduce their chances of winning.
We rely on our trial experience to represent our clients aggressively in contractual and other business disputes. Our systematic approach to litigation ensures that we explore every venue to the benefit of our clients.
As part of our services, we work with our clients to negotiate and execute commercial financing transactions. Our experience allows us to structure deals to fit our clients’ short and long-term goals.
