BUSINESS LAW

At Thrasher, Dinsmore & Dolan, a Legal Professional Association, we take pride in the lasting relationships we have developed with our business clients. We balance our legal knowledge and expertise with practical advice to help our clients achieve their goals, working to facilitate business development, not stand in the way.

  • General Corporate: Our lawyers have significant experience handling all facets of business law, from entity formation to complex business transactions, working with companies of varying size, demographic location and industry group. We understand and work to balance the competing needs of investors, management, lenders and equity ownership. We counsel clients on a wide range of business matters, from general day to day business operations to joint ventures, equity financing and restructuring, tax issues and financing. We take a proactive approach to advising our corporate clients, helping our clients to evaluate risk, negotiate and develop strategies to account for those factors, and accomplish their business objectives. Many of our clients employ us as regular outside general counsel to assist with company issues on a regular basis including guidance on corporate formalities, contract drafting and negotiation, employment matters, and dispute resolution.
  • Mergers and Acquisitions: We understand that every business transaction is unique, and our attorneys bring to the table well-honed legal skills, carefully crafted agreements, and often, creative thinking, to get the deal done. Whether you are involved in a merger, acquisition, or a sale or divestiture of your business, we focus on identifying the appropriate structure for the transaction, identifying potential issues and devising strategies to overcome them. We work to negotiate agreements that balance the size and complexity of the transaction with the needs of our clients. We seek to identify risk, both known and unknown, and advise our clients on ways to structure transactions that balance the need to minimize that risk with the need to move business forward. We also assist clients with the dissolution, liquidation and winding down of an entity that has ceased operations.
  • Business Succession: Having a viable succession plan in place can be essential to a company’s survival, and can help maximize value for company owners even when the unexpected occurs. Our lawyers can assist you with devising and implementing an appropriate and customized succession plan to help ensure the success of your business well into the future, whether the desired transition is to future generations, employees, management, or even a third party.
  • Litigation: We understand that business disputes require you to shift your time and resources away from your main focus, your customers and products. Therefore, we partner with our clients to advise them on ways to reduce the risk of potential litigation. When disputes do arise, we work to minimize the impact on your business by pursuing smart, cost-effective solutions. If court action is necessary to protect your business interests, we bring our extensive litigation experience to the table. We combine legal skills with an understanding of the practical considerations underlying business decisions so that we can guide you towards the most advantageous solutions for your business.
