Business and Commercial Law

When you're starting or operating a business, the legal counsel you need should be informed by business savvy. That is what we offer at the Law Offices of H. Michael Soroy in Los Angeles. Mr. Soroy is an MBA as well as an attorney and brings business acumen as well as legal experience to the table when working with new or operating businesses in Southern California.

Full Range of Business Law Services

Our firm can help you with the full range of transactions and ongoing legal issues needed to set up your business and make it thrive. This includes:

  • Starting a business: Many business owners choose the form of a limited liability company (LLC) when setting up a new business. But this is an important choice, and it makes sense to weigh other options as well such as limited partnerships (LP) and corporations. We can use our legal and business experience to help you make a considered choice — and take care of the paperwork needed to make it happen.
  • Day-to-day operations: Sound legal advice that is based on an awareness of your business challenges can help you face those challenges effectively. Our firm can assist with day-to-day matters such as negotiating and drafting business contracts and agreements to protect your business assets. We can also use our real estate experience to handle issues involving leasing or property sales.
  • Sale or dissolution of your business: If you are involved in the purchase or sale of a business, we can provide the counsel you need to seek appropriate value for your interest. We also know the right steps to take to close a business when that is called for.
  • Business succession plans: If your business is a family-owned or operated business, it is important to think ahead about a succession plan. We can use our estate planning knowledge to guide you to an appropriate resolution.

Reputable Southern California Business Litigation Lawyers

When business litigation becomes necessary, we are prepared to represent businesses in support of their long-term goals. Practical, straightforward resolutions are usually preferable to long, drawn-out legal battles. We aggressively pursue such resolutions. We share our business clients' concern for the bottom line and the ongoing health of their enterprises and operations.

But negotiation is not effective in every situation. That is why our commercial litigation attorneys are prepared to represent client interests at trial when necessary. Our business litigation cases include breach of contract disputes and issues involving business breakups or closings.

Attentive, Responsive and Dedicated Business Counsel

In business law, as in all our practice areas, clients appreciate our attentiveness to their needs and responsiveness in communications. Our lawyers devote much time and energy to giving each potential or existing client the time and thoughtful consideration necessary to answer questions and move closer to their goals.

We also assist business owners and management personnel in personal legal matters that include estate planning, probate and real estate transactions.
