Generally, a Modesto business transaction lawyer helps business owners conduct business and expand their companies. You may need an attorney if you are acquiring a business, acquiring intellectual property, or purchasing large orders of inventory. When you take part in a business transaction, you must navigate complicated areas of law. For example, you may need to draft restrictive covenants or prepare the required paperwork to start your business. Our lawyers can help with a wide variety of business transactions involving:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements: Selling or purchasing your business requires you to dig deep into what the business is worth. It also requires diligent investigation.

  • Uniform Codes: Every state in the U.S. has its own set of courts, laws and regulations. The Uniform Law Commission establishes uniform codes to regulate business transactions happen between states. Our law firm may be able to use these uniform codes to help you mitigate taxes on country-wide transactions.
