Practice Areas

At The Packer Firm we provide legal services centered on the needs of small and mid-sized businesses. We provide services in almost every area of the law that affects their strategy and operations. We emphasize getting to know our client businesses intimately because we understand that legal counsel is only useful if it can be put into action in each client's unique organization and culture.

Business Formation

Most entrepreneurs want to quickly get about their business plans without worrying about complicated issues of business formation. The choice of business entity and the business’ governing documents, however, can have important impact on every aspect of the business’ future development including:

  • how the business, partners and shareholders are taxed
  • how major strategic decisions are made
  • how disputes between partners, managers and/or shareholders are resolved
  • how profits are distributed or retained
  • how the business raises capital
  • whether and how the business participates in mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures
  • succession planning
  • founders’ and/or partners’ exit strategies

The choice of proper business entity at the beginning can mitigate the risks and maximize the opportunities that arise throughout the business’ life. We help guide our clients through the process of forming a business so that they can begin putting their business plan into action. Please contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation on how we can help in the formation of your business.
