Forming a company, starting a small business or registering your business entity is a major step for many individuals – a step that requires experienced advice. If not set up correctly, the company, and you as the owner, may encounter serious issues including fines, penalties, or personal liability for the debts of the company.

In order to help, we are offering a checklist to guide you through the process. The checklist  is merely a starting point but will serve as a foundation to get you closer to your goal of getting your company off the ground. Keep in mind that we can only give legal advice to our clients, so this list should be considered as a single information source - not legal advice. Please fill out the form to the right to receive your copy of  ”10 Legal Questions to Consider When Forming Your Company.” 

We're looking forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!


We have substantial experience in the fields of corporate and securities law, and represent companies of all sizes in financing transactions. In order for a company to grow and reach the next level, they may need to be able to raise money when necessary, even when the sources of capital are limited. We do not just provide the tools to find funding opportunities, but we take an active role in locating, preparing, negotiating, and closing those opportunities. We have extensive experience advising companies on how to raise funds and actively participating in the negotiation process with venture capital, banking, and angel investors. Our goal is to put our clients in the best position possible to acquire funding and then connect them with appropriate sources of capital in an efficient and cost-effective manner for all parties involved. To accomplish this, we actively work with our clients to refine their business strategies, provide business solutions and prepare quality investor materials.

At Attentive Law Group, we do not want our clients to just view us as their attorneys, but as partners committed seeing their company succeed. Contact us today to learn how we can help your company.


Our attorneys have executed merger & acquisition deals for more than 20 years. We pride ourselveson the fact that we do not just close M&A transactions, but do so in a manner that meets our client’s business objectives. This is achieved by creating more than just a “billing” relationship with our client, but rather one where we become a trusted legal partner and valued advisor.

We have assisted several companies by quickly and efficiently executing their strategic plans. We have assisted large and small companies alike.  As an example, our lawyers have assisted with the following transactions:

  • Our client was interested in expanding its business into Canada.  We worked with Canadian counsel to assist our client in acquiring an operating business that met its needs, including the Purchase Agreement, Employment Agreements, Earn-outs and related transactional documents.
  • Our client was a foreign entity looking to expand into the United States.  We helped them form their local entity and negotiated the purchase of a local company that allowed them to expand their presence into the United States.

We represent and counsel sellers, purchasers, targets, and financial advisors in connection with a full spectrum of M&A transactions including:

  • Advance preparation for prospective targets
  • Private equity
  • Asset sales and purchase
  • Recapitalizations
  • Restructurings
  • General corporate counseling
  • Corporate governance advice 
  • Joint ventures
  • Spin-offs
  • Split-offs
  • Leveraged buyouts
  • Stock sales and purchase
  • Strategic mergers 
  • Redemptions


The stress and expense of becoming embroiled in a legal dispute can be debilitating. We recognize that our clients can ill afford the time, money, and emotional drain of protracted court proceedings. They have lives to live and businesses to run.

At Attentive Law, our primary goal is to assist you in identifying strategies for avoiding disputes in your business dealings before they arise. Where a dispute is unavoidable, we aim to reach a successful negotiated resolution as quickly and cost effectively as possible. And, in the event that formal dispute resolution proceedings are necessary, we have the experience to take your case from the filing of the initial complaint through to the conclusion of the hearing or trial.
