Business and Commercial Transactions
From the formation of a corporate or partnership enterprise to the handling of a major restructuring, Pender & Coward offers a full array of legal services. The firm represents clients in acquisitions, banking and credit union law, real estate development, tax planning, contract drafting and negotiation, stockholders' and partnership agreements and financing. We also advise clients on compliance procedures with complex state and federal regulatory requirements. Our attorneys consult with our Real Estate, Environmental and Bankruptcy sections to identify and resolve issues with the objective of protecting our clients while ensuring that transactions are closed quickly and efficiently.
Members of the firm provide qualified legal services to its business clients on a variety of topics starting with the formation of the business as a corporation (C Corp or possibly S Corp), as a limited liability company, or possibly as a sole proprietorship in the case of small businesses. Our attorneys assist owners of businesses getting started with the preparation of thorough shareholder and other joint ownership agreements in order to have a clear understanding of everyone’s role in a new business. Services include transactions experienced through the growth of the business, such as expansion transactions, property acquisitions, mergers and other corporate acquisitions, as well as handling transactions involving the sale or other disposition of a business and its assets. This practice area also involves the day-to-day consulting that business clients require, such as negotiating leases, drafting contracts, and other day-in day-out legal issues our business clientele face.
