Brentwood Business Services and Litigation Attorney
Starting, running, and selling a business is complicated, so it is not uncommon for legal issues to unexpectedly arise for the parties involved. There is a lot at stake with these kinds of transactions, so whether you are attempting to start a new business, are interested in acquiring an existing business, or are involved in a legal dispute with another company or individual, it is important to get the right legal advice and support from a team of dedicated Brentwood business services and litigation attorneys.
What is Business Law?
Business law covers legal matters related to commercial issues, such as employment, lawsuits, sales, taxes, antitrust laws, and bankruptcy, basically anything that involves a disagreement arising from a business relationship. It can help to think of business law as being made up of two main parts: the regulation of business entities and the regulation of business transactions. The help of an attorney can play a crucial role in both areas of the law. Creating a corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), or partnership, for instance, can be complicated, as each requires its own set of procedures, as does legally managing those entities. Similarly, entering into contracts with other companies, or even purchasing another business, can raise all kinds of legal issues that require the deft hand of a skilled legal representative who is well-versed in Tennessee business law.
