Operating a successful business in today’s economic and regulatory environments takes a great deal of foresight and planning. Unfortunately, no amount of foresight or planning can completely eliminate the potential liabilities of your business, or help you avoid complex legal issues related to operations, regulations, agreements, or transactions.
At the DeChello Law Firm LLC in North Haven, CT, we leverage more than 25 years of experience to offer corporate and business law advice to clients throughout Connecticut. We handle a wide range of corporate and business law matters and have the knowledge and experience needed to seek to creatively protect your legal interests and address complex legal business issues. We are proud to offer clients knowledgeable representation in a variety of matters:
Our extensive work with companies both domestic and foreign allows us to provide advice on a number of legal issues, including:
Organization and New Business Startups: The financial and liability benefits of properly structuring your organization are significant. Our firm offers advice on the benefits and alternatives of incorporation, formation of limited liability companies, partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships, business structuring, protection of intellectual property rights, and other issues relating to the organization and protection of your business interests.
Business Transactions: Whether you sell a product or service to a customer or purchase materials and supplies from a vendor, it is important to protect your business during the transaction. We provide advice on the best methods of protecting your business during transactions, including guidance on drafting contracts, purchase agreements, consulting agreements, and more.
Operations: The daily operations of your business can be very complex, with various legal and regulatory factors to address. We offer advice on a wide range of operational issues, including employment and non-compete agreements and contracts with vendors, suppliers, and consultants.
Business Disputes & Corporate Divorce: Much like personal relationships, business relationships often sour and become unmanageable. While we strive to create business entities with management structures and succession plans to avoid disputes, clients are often referred to us to provide guidance concerning a dispute with a business partner or a corporate divorce, or when in need of guidance on entity governance issues or to dissolve a business entity. Our strength is working with our clients and their key advisors in fashioning creative strategies and solutions for otherwise emotionally charged business owner disputes.
Business Planning & Succession: Leaving a strong legacy behind is a goal for many business owners. Our staff helps business owners plan for the transition between owners and offers advice on the best methods for naming a successor to take over your business after your retirement or passing.
Ongoing Representation: We serve as outside “general counsel” to a number of business entities. In this role, we strive to be proactive in using our knowledge and experience to provide guidance on legal and business issues to protect the legal interest of your business.
Tax-Exempt Entities: We work closely with charitable, educational, religious, social service, artistic and athletic organizations on their special organizational, governance, corporate, and tax concerns needed to gain recognition by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt organizations.
Addressing complex business and corporate law issues can be a difficult challenge. The sooner you discuss your legal issues with a lawyer, the sooner you can begin the process of resolving the matter and moving forward with your business plan.
