How can an Albuquerque Business Attorney help you?

What is Business Law in Albuquerque New Mexico?

At the Law Office of Adam Oakey, our Albuquerque business attorneys understand Business Law and appreciate the fact that small businesses are the engine that drives our local and national economies. We also understand that entrepreneurs and business owners face a myriad of legal issues in starting, running, building, and eventually selling their businesses, or passing them on to the next generation.

Help Getting Started

As business attorneys in Albuquerque, New Mexico, we can assist you with essentially every step of your entrepreneurship process from entity selection and formation, to ongoing entity governance, to regulatory compliance, to negotiating and documenting important contracts and transactions, to litigation, to succession planning. Whether you are in the beauty, car, cleaning, entertainment, real estate, etc. the business attorneys at the Law Office of Adam Oakey can help.

Business Entity Selection

There are many types of business entities. The most common are Sole Proprietor, Partnership, Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Company (or “LLC”), and the so-called “S” and “C” Corporations. Each business form has different rules for personal liability, tax liability, and internal governance. For reasons we can explain during our initial consultation, we believe that the LLC, the “S” Corporation, or the “C” Corporation are the best choices for the vast majority of businesses.

Formation and Governance Advice for New Mexico Companies

Once you have selected the proper form for your new entity, in addition to drafting, signing and filing articles of organization (for an LLC) or articles of incorporation (for a corporation), you probably should also have an operating agreement (for an LLC) or bylaws (for a corporation) to govern how your company is run – especially if there will be more than one owner. You may also want a member agreement (for an LLC) or a shareholder agreement (for a corporation) to govern how major owners will conduct themselves when significant events happen.

Our business lawyers in New Mexico assist you with negotiating, drafting, properly executing, and implementing these important documents. We can also guide you with understanding and complying with the on-going governance rules that apply to your entity.

Business Transactions, Mergers & Acquisitions Attorneys in Albuquerque

At some point, every business is involved in important transactions that are critical to the continued success of the organization and/or to the owners’ ability to realize a profit on their hard work and investment. Whether that transaction is the purchase or sale of a significant asset (be it real property, personal property, or a combination of the two) or the merger with, or acquisition by or of, another company, our legal advice as your Albuquerque Business law attorneys is vital. We can help ensure that everything is properly negotiated and documented, ensuring that you avoid unpleasant surprises or catastrophes that can occur if you don’t have someone making sure “all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted.”

Dedicated Albuquerque Business Attorney

These are just a few of the things your dedicated Albuquerque business attorney will do for you. If you’re needing advice about how to legally set up your business, Adam Oakey can help. Adam Oakey has successfully built his own business and continues to do so for others. Get in touch with us to request a consultation today.
