Company Formation, Financing, and Outside General Counsel

At Hutner Klarish LLP, we cater to the complete needs of our business and corporate clients from inception through all operational phases. Practical guidance and creative solutions are coupled with our sense of caring and cooperation to achieve objectives. Take a look at some feedback from our clients. We work closely with our clients, taking time to understand their business and their goals to ensure that appropriate legal structures, documentation, and contractual protections are in place. Our streamlined structure allows us to do so at a fair and reasonable cost to you.

Business Formation

The type of legal entity chosen for the business is crucial to its success. Hutner Klarish LLP helps to determine which form is most appropriate for the owner’s business goals, such as business structure, management controls, tax minimization, risk management, and potential exit strategies. We assist clients in determining the most desirable choice of entity to meet their objectives, such as:

  • S Corporation
  • C Corporation
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Limited Partnership (LP)
  • Professional Corporation (PC)
  • Professional Association (PA)
  • Joint Venture Partnership
  • Professional Limited Liability Company (PLLC)

Once the type of entity is chosen, Hutner Klarish LLP handles all aspects of formation and organization, such as registration, documentation, preparation of minute books and stock certificates, preparation of essential agreements, and obtaining any licenses that may be needed.

Ongoing Representation

We represent companies on all kinds of matters and transactions that are part of the ongoing operation of a business. In that way, we serve as their outside general counsel and effectively handle both their day to day and special matters, such as:

  • Shareholders and LLC Agreements
  • Strategic Contracts
  • Employment Contracts
  • Compensation Matters
  • Lease Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Commercial Arrangements
  • Employee Separation
  • Stock Option Programs
  • Loan Agreements
  • Distribution Agreements
  • Licensing Agreements
  • Branding & Intellectual Property

One of our most important functions is the anticipation of common problem areas, potential complications and cause for disputes and taking action now to extinguish fires before they ignite. If disputes arise, we use our experience and practical judgment to represent clients through settlement negotiations or litigation, arbitration and mediation.
