Business & Estate Planning
Personal service and attention to detail in individual, business, and family matters are central to the practice of the firm.
Stan represents clients ranging from individuals and families to closely held businesses in estate planning and business transactions.
We assist clients in planning for the management of assets during their lifetime, including in the event of incapacity, and upon their death. During the planning process, we work with clients to identify and understand their goals, consider their current and future asset holdings, and provide a range of options. The Firm’s practice extends beyond the preparation of traditional Wills and Trusts.
Trust and Estate Administration
Assisting in the administration of Trusts and Estates is central to our practice. We prepare all necessary documents for the administration of Trusts and Estates and work with accountants and other advisors of clients. We also protect the interests of beneficiaries to insure maximization of the bequest made on their behalf.
Stan is experienced in many aspects of business law. We advise clients of all sizes, from and including start-up companies, existing companies, and farmers and ranchers. We present options for entity choices and solutions, including limited liability companies, corporations, limited partnerships, and other entities.
Mergers and Acquisitions
The acquisition or sale of a business and its assets involves counseling clients on organizing and structuring new entities, employment issues, and corporate governance. It also includes reviewing and drafting various types of commercial business agreements, including employment and consulting agreements, commercial leases and purchase agreements. Stan works closely with clients and their team of advisors to achieve the best possible terms, while resolving issues with a view toward the overall goal and success of the transaction.
