Erin K. Tenner has thirty (30) years of experience handling business transfers including asset sale and purchase agreements, stock purchase and sale agreements, option agreements and executive buy-in agreements. Erin is here to help you understand when a stock purchase or an asset purchase is in your best interest, when you can and cannot give stock options without creating huge tax liability and how to take in a partner or buy into a business in a way that will be productive and beneficial for all parties concerned with expert advice designed to minimize liability and encourage growth.
Real Estate Transactions
Buying or selling real estate is costly enough without exposing yourself to unnecessary liability. Our experience can help you navigate the land mines of environmental exposure, tax liens, mechanics liens, construction defects and other issues that can cost you if you are not anticipating them and being proactive. We protect you from the worst that could happen and help you plan for the best.
Shareholder, Partnership and Operating Agreements
If you have a partner and you don’t have an agreement that governs what happens if one of you dies, becomes permanently disabled, loses their interest in a divorce or to a creditor, you have unnecessary exposure. We will help you draft an agreement now to protect you later. Having an agreement prepared while everyone is getting along will save you time and money if a dispute arises or if the unexpected happens later.
Are you signing complex loan documents that you don't understand? Are you in a bind with your lender and need help getting out? Are you leasing land and haven't thought about what happens if the landlord's lender forecloses because he hasn't paid his mortgage after you have paid the rent? Businesses are often faced with challenges and need help negotiating with their lenders. We are here to represent you in all loan-related matters. Whether you are leasing or borrowing let us help you before you get into trouble by explaining the risks and getting you the agreements you need to protect yourself if something goes wrong.
Corporate & LLC Formation and Dissolution
We form corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and handle mergers and acquisitions, as well as dissolutions. Let us help you decide which entity choice is best for you. The franchise taxes are calculated differently on corporations than on limited liability companies. Or is a partnership or limited partnership more sensible for your business? Whether you are buying land or a new business or starting a business from scratch you need to consider whether an entity formation will protect you from unnecessary liability and enable you to take advantage of tax laws to reduce your tax liability.
We review contracts with architects, general contractors and lenders. All need to be coordinated and provide accountability so everything flows together smoothly. We know the provisions that can save you money and the ones that can hurt you or protect you in an economic downturn or when a contractor isn't delivering. Legal complications and issues are a reality for businesses everywhere. The stronger your agreement, the less likely you will have a dispute and the more options you will have if a dispute arises giving you better chance of prevailing or settling early if you prefer to avoid the expense of litigation.
