Your Business’s Legal Partners
Starting a new business, navigating the ongoing success of a mature business and winding down or selling a business are all legally complex endeavors that require extraordinary legal skill and experience. Do not handle these commercial concerns without the help of experienced lawyers who can protect your business’s interests.
At the Herbert Machnik Law Firm, business law is at the forefront of what we do. With offices in Kalamazoo and Jackson, our attorneys provide comprehensive legal service marked by attention to detail and cost-effective solutions. We represent business startups, provide ongoing counsel, handle contract negotiations and reviews, serve as strong counsel in mergers and acquisitions, and we represent local businesses in all types of disputes and litigation. Our Michigan clients trust our business-savvy lawyers to serve as ongoing in-house counsel, helping them navigate all aspects of a successful business.
Representation Through The Lifespan Of Your Business
Our attorneys can help you with the entire life of your business. We can help you with the initial startup issues like:
- Entity selection
- Business filing with the Secretary of State
- Initial documentation and business planning
- Employment agreements
- All contracts involved
For already-established businesses, we provide ongoing legal counsel that can include contract work, compliance, best practices, employment manuals and policies, and the avoidance of litigation exposure. With the complexities of the modern world, it is critical to have legal minds as part of your overall team.
We also serve clients in mergers and acquisitions, as well as the winding down of businesses. In most cases, the closing of a business will have significant estate planning implications for the principals involved. Our attorneys also handle estate planning and probate.
Business Employment Law And Commercial Disputes
When disputes arise, there is nothing more important than efficient, favorable resolution. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in both business litigation and mediation. Whenever possible, we use mediation to obtain results more efficiently and amicably, but when mediation is not a viable option, our attorneys fight for our client’s interests in court. Our legal team has substantial courtroom experience. Our trial-tested lawyers represent in all manner of disputes that may arise in the areas of business law, employment law and civil litigation.
