Legal Support For Business Success
Whether you are starting a new business or embracing fresh opportunities, there are risks and key decisions along the way that can mean the difference between success and failure. Grealish McZeal, P.C., provides solid legal advice to safeguard your business and personal interests and lay the foundation for continued success.
We serve small and midsize companies in the Houston metro area, as well as the Boston area in Massachusetts. Our lawyers have extensive experience in business law, including many clients in the oil and gas industry. Our overlapping practice in commercial real estate law enables us to provide comprehensive services to our business clients.
Startup And Entity Formation
We help entrepreneurs choose the best structure for their enterprise, which might be a Texas limited liability company (LLC), a Texas corporation, or a Texas limited partnership (LP) or limited liability partnership (LLP). We explain the pros and cons of each entity as they relate to risk tolerance (personal liability), taxation and flexibility. Just as important, our lawyers help draft or negotiate the operating, shareholder or partnership agreement to define the roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders to head off future disputes.
Our firm also counsels business owners on the opposite end of the business cycle, including succession planning, buyout negotiations or business dissolution.
