    Business Law

    Incorporation and Organization of New Entities
    When you establish a new business or organization, what forms, documents, and other legal issues must you consider? What’s the best structure for your new entity? What are common pitfalls that you could encounter? How can you make the process as stress-free as possible? Our team can help you meet these challenges and more.

    Drafting and Filing of Articles of Incorporation or Organization and Other Business Documents
    Mistakes woven into the fabric of your business — in its articles of incorporation or organization — can redound to have subtle and long term negative effects, dragging you down, creating needless friction. On the other hand, when you draft and file articles according to best protocol – possibly using the advanced technologies and services that our firm can provide – you give your business or organization a leg up and a long-term advantage.

    Corporation, Partnership, LLC, and LLP Formation
    Forming a legal entity can shield your personal and business assets and position you for tax advantages and growth. Our team will help you choose the right structure and maximize the protection you get, based on your principles, needs, fears and marketplace.

    Purchase or Sale of a Business
    Buying or selling a business in Southern California can be quite challenging, given all the regulations, permitting, contracts, and negotiations involved. Activities involved might include: looking at cash flow analyses, reviewing contracts, taking offers from different bidders, working with one or multiple joint venture partners, and more. Our team can help you stay organized, focused and positioned for success, irrespective of the complexity or size of the deal.

    Commercial Lease Review and Drafting
    Whether you own a 12-story office structure and you want to lease out several dozen office suites or you simply want to draft or review a commercial lease template, we can meet your needs and help you avoid common errors and omissions.

    Contract Review and Drafting
    To succeed in business – or to build an organization – you need effective contracts that protect your interests and bind suppliers, vendors, and other partners to their commitments. These contracts should be clear, legible, free from annoying jargon, and mutually understood.

    Employment Matters
    Do you have worries about your workers’ compensation obligations? Do you have questions about how to establish and/or refine the hiring practices for your Carlsbad company? Or maybe you have questions about how to draft employee agreements for your Vista organization. In any case, we can help.

    As the old adage goes, “breaking up is hard to do.” Whether you are dissolving a robust, profitable corporation or a joint venture project that simply didn’t work out for both personal and professional reasons, our team can protect your rights, ensure that all parties “play fair,” and make the process as stress free as possible.

    Litigation of Disputes
    Sometimes, in business, deep and bitter disputes arise. If that’s the case, you will need meticulous, ethical and knowledgeable legal help to navigate the tricky road ahead.

    Negotiating and Drafting Partnership, Operating and Buy, Sell Agreements
    To handle sensitive negotiations, you want to rely on a San Marcos business attorney who has the experience, connections, and intuition to make your deals simple and seamless.

    Estate Planning

    Living Trusts
    By establishing a living trust now, while you have sound mind and judgment and health, you can protect your legacy and ensure that the people closest to you are protected and cared for.

    Durable Power of Attorney
    If you become incapacitated, you want a trustworthy advocate to enforce your wishes, resolve disputes, and effectively and respectfully manage your affairs.

    Advanced Healthcare Directive
    This is a topic that few of us like to consider, but if you fail to establish a carefully drafted advanced healthcare directive, you might place your physicians (or partner) in a needlessly difficult position. Eliminate lingering uncertainty, and take control over your care.

    Pour-over will
    This is a legal device that ensures that certain unaccounted-for assets and property will be distributed to your heirs according to your wishes and a pre-established plan.

    Probate, Guardianship, and Conservatorship

    Our team can make the probate process run smoothly, resolve disputes and ensure that assets and property are distributed according to the decedent’s wishes.

    If a loved one has grown sick or mentally ill, and you need to protect his or her finances, assets, property and rights, talk to our team about how to establish a conservatorship.

    Whether your teenage son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, and you want to protect his financial future; or your 10 year old niece recently lost both her parents in an accident, and you want to establish a guardianship so you can legally make decisions to protect her wellbeing, our team can help you handle the various challenges of guardianship.

    Trusts and Estate Administration

    Perhaps a close friend or relative recently passed, and you want to know how to invest, manage, and distribute assets in a way that is faithful to the decedent’s intentions. Or perhaps the settlor’s wishes were unclear, or he or she structured the estate in a less than strategic way. Our team can help you regain control, plan your next steps, and stay true to your values and principles.
