Experienced lawyers handle transactions, contracts and employee benefit issues

Whether you’re launching a startup or looking to build on decades of success, we offer knowledgeable insight and skillful representation for numerous legal challenges, such as:

  • Business formation — Our firm advises on all aspects of business formation, including the selection of a legal entity, corporate governance standards and the establishment of shareholder and partnership agreements.
  • Transactions — For all types of business transactions, our firm delivers strong counsel during the due diligence process and when it is time to close the deal.
  • Contracts — Businesses rely on the establishment and performance of sound contracts. Whether you need an agreement drafted, reviewed, negotiated or enforced, we can help.
  • Employment benefits — Managing employee benefits can draw focus away from your core operations. Our attorneys handle complex matters such as ERISA compliance.
  • Succession planning — When the time comes to transfer your business to someone else, there can be various legal, financial and organizational challenges. We offer comprehensive guidance on corporate transitions, taxes and other key concerns.
  • Breach of contract claims — When an agreement is broken, there are several possible remedies for the victimized party, including restitution, cancellation of the contract, liquidated damages and an order requiring the breaching party to perform the contractual obligations.
  • Collection matters — Recovering money that is owed to your business requires adherence to consumer laws and familiarity with the legal tools available to creditors.
  • Misappropriation of funds — If you suspect that someone has diverted business funds for their own use, immediate action is needed to recover what’s been taken and avert additional harm.
  • Corporate dissolutions — Breaking apart a company often leads to serious disputes over remaining assets, ownership of intellectual property rights and liability for business debts.

Regardless of your specific needs, we strive to achieve a prompt, favorable outcome for you while minimizing the disruption to your daily operations.

Business disputes in New Mexico

Our proven litigators deliver strong advocacy for companies in disputes arising from disagreements involving the management of closely held business interests.

Outside general counsel services

In-house legal departments require substantial resources, and most companies don’t have the everyday legal needs to justify such an investment. On the other hand, businesses of every size can benefit from having an experienced attorney available who understands their particular circumstances and objectives. Our firm has the size and scope to provide the same type of legal support that companies receive from on-staff general counsel. However, you can eliminate unnecessary expenses associated with hiring a full-time legal staff.

Why hire a business lawyer?

Business leaders are accustomed to handling challenges on their own. However, even a slight oversight during a commercial transaction or dispute could lead to costly problems down the road. We are committed to helping our business clients succeed and strive to build longstanding professional relationships based on mutual trust.
