The Law Office of Nathan C. Rogers specializes in business transactions and commercial litigation and appeals.
Representative business transactions include:
- Formation of business entities
Starting a business is an exciting time and I am pleased to help you start your journey. The choice of a business entity, such as a partnership, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC) is an important decision that should be made in consultation with all your professional advisors, including attorneys, financial advisors, and accountants. I can help you decide which type of business is right for you and prepare the necessary legal papers to form it.
- Corporate governance
Corporations and LLCs offer limited liability protection for business owners. However, if certain formalities aren't followed, these protections can be lost. I can advise you regarding the actions you need to take to ensure your business meets applicable legal requirements.
- Preparation of commercial and residential leases
As a landlord, having a solid lease is critical to realizing a return on your investment. Whether you are leasing commercial or residential property, I can advise you.
- General contract law
Having a clear, concise contract can help prevent disputes and is essential if a dispute does arise. I prepare and review many different types of contracts, such as professional services agreements, construction contracts, business purchase and sale agreements, and real estate transactions, to name just a few.
Litigation and Appeals:
If you have been sued or are in a situation where your rights have been violated, you need to take action quickly to protect your interests. You also need a thoughtful, experienced counselor to assess the situation and advise a course of action that is both legally and practically sound. The Law Office of Nathan C. Rogers has the skill to take your case to trial if necessary, but also to give candid recommendations when efforts should be made to settle. The Law Office of Nathan C. Rogers will also represent you on appeal, even if another lawyer handled the trial of your case. I represent litigation and appellate clients in a variety of subject areas, including:
- Construction disputes
- Real estate disputes
- Insurance disputes
- Contract disputes
- Fraud/intentional business torts
- Unlawful detainer (evictions and eviction defense)
- General commercial litigation
