Business and Real Estate Transactions


Comprehensive and Cost-Effective Guidance for Your Important Transactions

The investments you make in your business or your home can be the most consequential – and most complex – that you will ever make. There are dollars and dreams on the line; it is no time to be putting your trust in online forms that likely do not address your needs and concerns, or relying on agents or others whose interests may not align with yours.

You need someone squarely in your corner who has the knowledge and insight to ensure a prompt and trouble-free closing or provide sound counsel for you and your business; who prepares and reviews documentation to minimize your exposure and maximize the value of your investment; and who puts your interests first.

As an experienced Chicago business and real estate lawyer, I know how important it is to get a deal done. I also understand how crucial it is to get a deal done right. That is why I take a balanced approach to business and real estate transactions, one that is meticulous and detailed, but that does not delay a closing or consummation of a deal. My role is to facilitate, not stand in the way.

Sound Counsel for Business Transactions

For small and medium-size businesses throughout Chicagoland, I provide sound, practical counsel and guidance for business transactions, including:

    • Business and Entity Formation. The choice of entity structure for your enterprise is one of the most important decisions you will make as a business owner. Together, we will evaluate your unique needs and objectives, and discuss the many options available to your business. Starting off on the right foot or making a sound decision at a time of expansion can make all the difference. I make sure you have the guidance and counsel you need to make the best choices for your business.

 

    • Business Governance, Operations, and Growth. Once your business is established, it is crucial that you understand and comply with the often complex web of legal and regulatory requirements that apply to your operations. Failure to follow corporate formalities, make the necessary filings and reports, or meet labor, safety, or tax requirements can put your entire business at risk or expose you to significant personal liability. I work closely with my clients to implement programs and protocols designed to minimize risks and maximize efficiency.

 

  • Purchases, Sales, Transactions, and Agreements. By providing thorough and meticulous documentation and due diligence, I work to make sure that transactions proceed expeditiously and that risks are addressed and potential sources of conflict minimized.

Real Estate Transactions

Whether you are a first-time home buyer or an experienced real estate investor, I provide the counsel that can ensure that your real estate transaction is completed efficiently and effectively. I work closely with the agents, lenders, brokers, and others involved in your transaction, and I take pride in my ability to facilitate communication between all parties to ensure a prompt closing. As an experienced Chicago real estate attorney, I can provide you with invaluable peace of mind during and after your real estate transaction.
