Business Matters

Forming New Businesses: Shaw & Murphy can help clients form new LLCs, “C” Corporations, “B” Corporations or other business industries. We help clients decide which form best suits their needs, deciding whether to operate as a sole owner, a partnership, LLC or corporation.

Advising Businesses: We regularly consult with clients on running their businesses, working closely with financial and other professionals. We advise on the reorganization and dissolution of entities, and how to minimize the liability and risk facing officers and directors.

Buying and Billing Businesses: We also help clients negotiate the expansion or sale of their business from initial contract through closing. We work closely with financial professionals to help clients make the business, tax, and financial decisions that best fit their goals.

Commercial Law: We assist clients in preparing contracts and agreements, the sale of goods and services, and in obtaining financing for business purposes.

Employment Law: Our attorneys have 30 years of experience in handling discrimination, sexual harassment, employee benefit, affirmative action, and whistleblower litigation. Employment law is complex, and our firm actively pursues state and federal human rights, as well as agency regulations.

Not-for-Profit Corporation: We assist over 100 NFP corporations, including the creation and structuring of Not-for-Profit and 501 (c) entities, as well as revisions to Bylaws and Charters, and corporate matters and operations.

Real Estate: We represent both commercial and individual clients in all areas of real estate law, including the purchase and sale of property, construction matters, mortgages and foreclosures, zoning, landlord-tenant matters, adverse possession, and boundary line disputes.
