The East Valley Law Firm 480-656-8378

Every business is unique.   A creative, personal approach is necessary to meet your business needs.  We assist clients with business transactions and litigation, including business formation, contracts, regulatory matters, employment disputes, and business and commercial litigation.

Business Entities

Selecting the appropriate type of entity for a new endeavor is one of the  most crucial decisions you will make at the inception of your business. We analyze the needs of each individual client to recommend the best business entity to form, including Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and corporations. In addition, we assist in business succession planning to ensure continuity of the business while minimizing any tax implications.

Contracts

A thorough and well-drafted contract can create a successful business relationship or transaction, while minimizing the chance of future disputes. We assist business clients in carefully negotiating, drafting, and reviewing a variety of agreements, including:

  • Business Contracts
  • Purchase & Sale Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Lease Agreements

Business & Commercial Litigation

Despite thorough negotiations and careful precautions, contract disputes do arise, whether due to misunderstandings or the failure of a party to fulfill its obligations. If you are facing a business or commercial dispute, We have the skills and expertise to guide your organization toward a successful resolution.  Whenever possible, we offer representation in alternative dispute resolution  proceedings such as arbitrations and mediations, saving our clients time and money and preserving the potential for future business relationships.  When disputes cannot be resolved through negotiations, we have extensive, successful trial experience and will fight to protect your interests in court.

Employee Disputes

Preserving a cordial employer/employee relationship is important in operating a successful business. An employee dispute can effectively halt normal operations, and resolving problems in the workplace can require substantial time and resources. We offer efficient and effective legal services on behalf of employees, employers, and other parties in a range of disputes, including:

  • Wages & Pension Plans
  • Workplace Safety & Injuries
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Wrongful Termination & Discrimination
  • Hiring Disputes

Regulatory Matters

Federal and Arizona state regulations govern zoning, the health and safety of employees, how a business is operated and dissolved, the issuance of corporate shares, how a business's operations can affect air quality and the environment, and a range of other matters. We work with government agencies to obtain the necessary licenses and approvals. We  stay abreast of the latest regulatory developments and advise clients on how best to remain in compliance.
