People who have an existing business or are starting a new business need a corporation lawyer to help them look ahead to the potential successes and challenges they may face. It can be difficult to anticipate how the business may grow, change or eventually dissolve.
What happens if one partner/owner wants out or dies? It can be important for the remaining owner(s) to retain certain rights, including the right of first refusal, or in the event of death, the right to purchase the deceased partner’s shares. There are other basic corporate rights and options that often get overlooked unless the business owner has the proper legal guidance.
