Skilled Assistance With Business Formation Matters

Decades Of Business Law Experience In Southern Louisiana

New and existing companies can be structured in a broad variety of ways. When you form or restructure your business strategically and with the help of an experienced business law lawyer, you can control risk, save money and increase efficiency.

At Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, we have experience establishing new businesses and assisting companies regarding reorganizing, merging and operating. We have handled the establishment of hundreds of new businesses, including:

  • Limited liability companies
  • Corporations
  • Partnerships and joint ventures
  • Nonprofits

We work with domestic and international companies and handle a broad range of matters, including:

  • The drafting and formation of partnership agreements, employment agreements and intellectual property agreements
  • Mergers and acquisitions (M&As)
  • Corporate formalities such as directors’ meetings, the issuance of stock and the creation of corporate bylaws
  • Business formation and tax implications
  • Business restructuring regarding risk

Does one facet of your company’s business involve an inordinate amount of risk? We can investigate options to split the company into two firms so that risk is distributed strategically. We have saved clients millions of dollars through knowledgeable, goal-oriented reorganization.

Our Approach

We can establish firms in every U.S. state and frequently work with foreign firms and firms with overseas operations. Additionally, our practice history includes lifetime business representation for numerous firms. We strive to represent our clients so well that they return to us throughout their businesses’ lifetimes. And they do — we act as general counsel for many small businesses.

Whatever your business litigation needs, our team will be there. We offer competitive rates for business and commercial law matters, including business litigation on a contingency fee basis.
