Look No Further.

Our Business Attorneys Provide The Best Strategic Legal Counsel to Business Owners: Litigation, Start-ups, Contracts, Disputes & Other Business Issues.

Why Hire A Business Lawyer?

Great Question! There are many reasons a person would benefit from hiring a business lawyer, but we think these are the most important reasons someone should hire a business attorney:

  • A business attorney will protect your business 

  • A business attorney will protect your personal assets from liability

  • A business attorney will save you money during the course of your business ownership


Our Lawyers Will Protect Your Business

From Liability.

Are you a business owner or thinking about starting a business?  Whether you are facing business litigation or in a business dispute, exploring opportunities to grow your business, launching a new business, need a contract drafted, reviewed, or have a contract dispute, planning for business or professional growth, have shareholder disputes or issues, or buying a franchise, we are dedicated to protecting our clients' business.


How do we do that? We develop strategies to achieve your personal and professional goals and we implement the best tactics for your business. 

For instance, if your business is your biggest source of revenue, then a tactic would be to protect your business from litigation and liability. We would determine the best ways to protect your business from being sued and discuss strategies if litigation were to occur.

Our lawyers also ensure to protect your business from within. A business should be set up to not only include a plan to protect itself from outside sources- such as clients or competition- but also from within the company. Therefore, our business attorneys will give you the best legal advice to avoid partnership disputes, employment agreements, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, employee handbooks and guidelines, and more.

Our Lawyers Will Protect Your Personal Assets

From Liability.

Perhaps your business revenue is a great source of income for you, but the majority of your assets lie in your personal property. Personal property includes your house, your car, and your bank account. For a majority of Americans, most of their assets are their personal property. 

In this case, you will want to make sure that if your business makes a mistake, ends up in litigation, or an accident occurs, or there is a partnership dispute, your personal assets are shielded from the liability of your business. Yes- many people don't realize that if something happens to their business, the courts can allow a lien to be place don their home or a garnishment to be taken from their bank account. This can destroy a person. You want to make sure you are protected from this and we will make sure that it won't happen. 

Our Lawyers Will Save You And

Your Business Money.

Hiring a business attorney is an upfront cost and can be expensive. We get it. But did you know that hiring a business attorney can actually save you a lot of money? It's true. Think of it like preventive health care: if you take good care of yourself in the beginning and spend a little extra on fresh fruit and vegetables and quality supplements or vitamins, you will save yourself so much money in doctor visits, hospital stays, prescriptive medicine, etc. 

The same is true for your business. How you set up your business and draft and review important documents and contracts can help you avoid costly litigation, partnership disputes, decrease your business tax liability, avoid fines and late fees, give employee guidance and resolution tactics, and more.

Of course, if you or your business has already ran into one of these issues, we can help with that, too. Our business attorneys always give the most practical advice for your business, with an emphasis on reducing your costs.

What Does A Business Attorney Do?

Many people have this question and, of course, the answer depends on your specific case and your specific business. Our business lawyers are experienced and have comprehensive knowledge on all aspects of your business- so the list of what we do as business attorneys is rather long. Generally speaking, however, we will do the following things for your business:

  • Handle your business litigation, including disagreements with partners, shareholders, clients and more;

  • Assist with the start up of your company

  • Decrease your business tax liability

  • Give advice on how to handle client or customer disputes

  • Expertly prepare or review your business contracts and agreements

  • Help you manage your business and make it run smoothly, including employment agreements, operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and guidance on limiting or avoiding disputes

Our Business Attorneys Assist With The Formation And Start-Up Of Your Business.

When starting a business, one of the most important decisions is your business formation or business entity.

Business formation is the base to your success. We will help you determine how best to set up your business. There are misconceptions and misunderstandings concerning the different types of businesses with more than a half dozen to choose from such as: corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and sole proprietorships. We specialize in family-held and family-owned businesses as well.


There are a myriad of governing documents that must be filed and established including articles of incorporation and organization, bylaws, operating agreements, partnership and shareholder agreements and licensing documents.  Whether you want to start a business or are already established, you rely on transactions - with your clients, vendors, employees and others. We will help ensure the legalities of contracts and agreements are in place for your protection.  We will walk you through, explain and confirm you are compliant and have taken the proper steps to secure and shelter your business.  


You also have to consider tax and legal liability, transferability of ownership rights, ability to continue business in the event of death or withdrawal of one or more owners, the capital needs of the business and other business transactions. There are very specific laws pertaining to the regulations with which you as a business owner are required to comply.


The business entity type you select will determine the legal requirements of your business. Which entity will benefit you the most? A corporation? Should you create a Limited Liability Company (LLC)? Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)? What are the advantages of a Limited Liability Limited Partnership (LLLP) versus a Limited Partnership Association (LPA)? All have different structures – you have to make the right choice. Gantenbein Law Firm will advise and help you decide a tactical plan for success.


Our Attorneys Will Decrease Your Business

Tax Liability.

Businesses also face the complexity of tax issues. Our business attorneys have the expertise in both federal and state tax matters. We will help you understand tax law, resolve tax liens, back taxes, tax debt and relief and ensure your business is compliant with both state and federal tax laws.

Our business and tax lawyers will ensure your company was formed to have lowest tax liabilities. We can also re-structure your current business model to decrease your tax liability. 

The newest tax laws have many business owners wondering if their company should be re-structured to reduce their tax liability. We will review your business to see if there is a way to decrease your taxes and discuss alternative strategies for limiting tax liabilities.
