Connecticut Business Legal Team
Business Formation & Planning
Starting a business requires careful planning. The business legal team at Eagan & Donohue has extensive experience in helping entrepreneurs choose the proper legal structure for their businesses. During the initial consultation, we learn about your business goals and explain the benefits and limitations of C Corporations, S Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships, General Partnerships, 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organizations, and Sole Proprietorships. For most of these business entities, we offer a fixed-fee package.
After forming your business, we will advise you on and assist you with such matters as:
- Maintaining proper corporate formalities;
- Complying with applicable state and federal licensing requirements;
- Preparing and reviewing commercial real estate leases, shareholder agreements, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, and confidentiality agreements;
- Purchase, sale and succession planning; and
- Business dissolutions
In addition to our business formation and planning experience, Eagan & Donohue is proud to be a commercial litigation law firm that handles both plaintiff and defense cases from the initial consultation to a jury verdict and any subsequent appeal. We handle cases in both state and federal court. This unique dual experience provides our legal team with a strong grasp of the issues and needs facing both sides, and better prepares us to negotiate beneficial settlements and facilitate workouts. In the event that settlement discussions are unsuccessful, we look forward to representing plaintiffs or defendants at trial.
