Business & Contract Law

Legal issues permeate every aspect of business. They define the operational, tax, and regulatory environment of a business’s industry; dictate how businesses are bought, sold, organized, operated, and structured; inform business decisions to raise capital or to finance through debt; and establish obligations among business owners, employees, vendors, customers, and insurers. In this complex overlay, it is crucial for every business – no matter the size or maturity level – to work with sophisticated business counsel.

At Peace & Squires, we provide full-service representation and advise clients with all of their business needs through a company’s life cycle, including business entity selection, formation and financing, day to day contracting, vendor management, employment issues, restructuring ownership, acquisitions and dispositions, liquidation and exit, and corporate governance.
