The firm’s business representation touches upon all facets of an entity’s life cycle: from start-up and formation, to internal issues such as corporate governance, shareholder disputes and employee matters, to involvement in business planning, contract drafting and review and relationships with vendors, suppliers and customers, to expansion and other business combinations, eventual sale, and succession planning. Many businesses consider Kuhn Rogers to be an invaluable business resource and critical team member, serving in both an advisory role and providing legal support for day-to-day decision making.

Business Formation

Kuhn Rogers assists clients with the formation of all types of business entities and combinations including corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships. Critical to the proper formation of these entities is providing guidance on what a venture may experience as it moves through its life cycle, anticipating issues that may arise between equity participants in the future and ultimately creating a comprehensive exit strategy to ensure a smooth transition or disposition. Kuhn Rogers has extensive experience in drafting operating agreements, shareholder agreements, buy-sell agreements and other related documents that will anticipate these concerns and give your business the greatest chance of success.

Mergers and Acquisitions

A great deal of Kuhn Rogers’ business practice involves representing businesses that are contemplating or actively engaged in some form of business acquisition, disposition or merger. Kuhn Rogers assists clients with all aspects of a transaction by counseling on how to best position the business, structure the deal and obtain financing, to drafting initial letters of intent and non-disclosure agreements, to negotiating and drafting definitive agreements and providing due diligence support, to ultimately coordinating and administering the closing. Transactions range from the purchase and sale of small sole-proprietorships or family run businesses to the merger or acquisition of the complex multi-entity, multi-jurisdictional conglomerate driven by tax concerns or complicated regulations.
