Business & Corporate Law

Business & Corporate Law

Architects of Business.

Every business needs a proper legal framework from which to grow. Without the right legal advice, companies risk more than lost profits. They risk shareholder and property disputes, disgruntled employees, bad publicity and worse.

Given the proper legal tools – effective policies, contracts, training programs and more – businesses can easily lay the groundwork for prosperity and success. At Melchert Hubert Sjodin we’ve helped to build, manage and grow businesses for 80 years. Our corporate law clients include banks, wholesalers, retailers, technology firms, professionals and health care institutions, and real estate investors and developers, many of whom have been with us for generations.

We both structure and form business entities and provide businesses with a remarkable range of services encompassing banking and finance law, employment and labor law, real estate law, mergers and acquisitions, negotiations and drafting of contracts, business succession planning, and construction law and litigation.

We can help your business by:

Negotiating and drafting contracts, and commercial litigation – and by explaining to you the various strategies available to reach your goals, whether simple or complex.

Advising you on business purchases and sales, succession planning, dissolutions and buy-outs in a way that creates the maximum benefit for all parties.

Business structuring, including choice of entity, shareholder and buy-sell agreements, and capitalization.

Handling the legal details of software development and licensing arrangements.

Protecting your intellectual property, and your advantage in the marketplace.

Look to our firm for real-world solutions and positive results at all levels. From small businesses just starting out to representing established companies in mergers and acquisitions, we offer strategic advice combined with diligent attention to detail.

What Our Clients Say…

I appreciate the fact that they are willing to work with our other legal counsel. They have done this in several situations over fairly complex bond financing issues or with health care law. Yet we look at Melchert Hubert Sjodin similar to in-house counsel because of their broad experience and ability to turn things around quickly. They have fabulous turnaround time and we've always felt that their rates were fair and accurately portrayed the work they did.
