Opening a new business can be one of the most exciting yet confusing times in an entrepreneur’s career. The Corporate Law attorneys at MeyerGoergen guide clients through the often cloudy waters of starting a business. In addition to helping clients acquire their companies, we offer succession planning assistance, guiding them through the sale and acquisition of business assets should a business dissolve. We have a strong commercial real estate acquisition, development & finance team, and we are one of only a few firms with lawyers experienced in franchise law.
At MG Law, we serve businesses of all sizes and in all industries, ranging from closely-held to large companies, including a significant number of the area’s largest privately-owned businesses. We represent commercial realtors, retailers, tractor trailer repair companies, gas stations, machine shops, hotels, software companies, realtors, and banks, among others.
Most of our clients have long-term relationships with our firm. Whether they initially came for help collecting on unpaid accounts or implementing operating agreements or employment agreements, they often return for a wide range of legal advice, including entity formation advice, ongoing corporate structure, bylaws and maintenance, commercial real estate and leasing transactions, and employment law. We also help clients develop internal procedures, billing, and contracts, and teach them how to avoid potential legal problems, protect against non-payments, and preserve business relationships.
Our transactions practice includes SBA Loans, small business loans, and creative funding solutions, such as equity injections, 401Ks and IRAs for finance options. We represent lenders on SBA Loans with the goal of protecting the bank’s interest while moving the process along so the small business can stay on track. We also provide legal counsel on mergers and acquisitions, general corporate, and securities law.
Our clients return because they know we are committed to providing practical, cost-efficient legal advice tailored to their unique situation.
