Corporate Law and Business Counseling

Gallagher & Cavanaugh provides comprehensive legal services to a broad spectrum of business clients ranging from national and multinational publicly traded corporations, to closely-held and family-owned companies, to small start-ups. Our services include the following:

  • creating corporations, LLCs, and partnerships for small businesses;
  • representing clients in contractual disputes;
  • conducting business closings;
  • preparing franchise and distributorship agreements; and
  • handling business litigation.

We provide knowledgeable and sound advice at every stage of a company's development.  We are experienced in addressing the complexities involved in maintaining control among founders and other business principals.  We also advise on and structure transactions allowing outside participation for a business to grow, such as capitalization strategies, and stock redemption, cross purchase, and hybrid agreements.  Our lawyers are also skilled in dealing with succession planning, taking a central role to guide the transition of a business from one generation to the next.  At times, we are called upon to handle business separations, including those involving professional service firms.

Our business lawyers are strong advocates, effective negotiators, and skilled in anticipating and identifying issues before they become future problems. We prepare comprehensive, well drafted transactional documents to accomplish our clients' goals. Our primary objective is to keep our clients closely informed of any and all key issues involved in a business transaction. We strive, whenever and wherever possible, to be "deal makers" and "not deal breakers."
