Helping clients accumulate and protect wealth

Boyd & Durant assists entrepreneurs in forming, buying, and selling businesses. There are many types of business entities, such as corporations, limited liability companies, trusts, general partnerships, and limited partnerships. We help our clients weigh the benefits unique to each to determine which form should be used for a given investment. When a venture is formed by more than one owner, we help them in negotiating the terms of their business arrangement. This is embodied in an operating agreement, shareholders agreement, or partnership agreement, and typically includes provisions regarding capital investment, distribution of revenues and profits, and management of the business. We plan for going in and for getting out. We assist clients in reaching their business deal and then in preparing the documents memorializing it.

We also have experience preparing clients for the sale of their business, including non-compete confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements leading up to a possible sale. When representing a buyer, our lawyers assist in due diligence investigations, financing, and provide closing services.
