Boyd & Durant counsels clients on the best way to set up a business enterprise. Whether it's a limited liability company, corporation, or partnership, we assist entrepreneurs in negotiating important provisions regarding company structure, equity, management, and buyout.
We additionally represent parties in the purchase or sale of businesses. These services include the due diligence, such as review of business valuations and appraisals, and real estate title examination. We also handle the closing, preparing the documents necessary to ensure the transaction is settled consistent with the agreement.
Our experience in real estate law, corporate law, and business litigation makes us uniquely qualified to handle complex divorces. We understand real estate, finance, and business valuations. These issues are fertile ground for disputes in a high net worth divorce. With the assistance of forensic accountants, and often through depositions and other litigation strategies, we work to ensure all income and assets are identified so they can be distributed according to law.
