Agreements Among Owners

Our lawyers have experience both as in-house counsel and as general counsel to businesses ranging from the variety store with a sole proprietor and a few part-time employees to closely held, family-owned businesses with operating facilities in several states.

By-laws, shareholder agreements, LLC operating agreements and Buy-Sell Agreements are all important to maintain strong effective relationships among owners. When a business is owned by a few owners and the owners work at the business or provide financing to the business, the operating documents need to reflect those specific concerns. What happens if an owner wants to get out of the business. What happens if a key employee dies or wants to retire. We will tailor your documents to meet your specific needs and reflect your business goals. The lawyers at Welts, White & Fontaine identify the issues, explain the concerns and draft documents which address your concerns.
