Milwaukee Business Lawyers Assist Companies Throughout Wisconsin

Skilled advisors for small companies looking to grow

Milwaukee small businesses rely on Hart Law Office for assistance with business formations, contract negotiations and much more. We have more than 46 years of experience delivering clear, thoughtful legal advice to firms in southeastern Wisconsin. Our attorneys can strengthen your company’s foundation through skillful planning and will protect your rights if you’re considering entering into a contract or other business transaction.

Guiding you through the steps required for successful business formation

Launching a business is a nonstop endeavor with countless expected and unexpected challenges. We will allow you to concentrate on your success by assisting you with all of the legal obstacles, including:

  • Formation documents — Hart Law Office can prepare and file documents to start your business whether you choose to incorporate in Wisconsin or another state. This includes articles of incorporation, bylaws tailored to your needs, and certificates apportioning ownership shares.
  • Corporate and tax status — We will advise you as to the advantages and pitfalls of various kinds of business entities including corporations, partnerships and limited-liability options. If you’re wondering about whether it’s better to file with the IRS as an “S” or “C” corporation, we can explain those differences as well.
  • License and permit requirements — Various federal, state and local regulations might affect or even prevent your ability to operate. From the outset, we will work with you to identify each requirement and make sure all are satisfied.

The diligence and experience of Hart Law Office attorneys will help you develop a solid plan for establishing a thriving business.

Establishing buy-sell agreements to avert future ownership problems

Any business with shared ownership must plan for the possibility that one owner might have to give up their interest on short notice. Executing a buy-sell agreement when the business is formed prepares for this contingency and can prevent costly problems later. We can help you set terms for handling and pricing a buyout by one owner of another’s shares if something such as an illness, death, divorce or bankruptcy occurs.

Assisting companies with contract review and development

Whatever type of transaction you’re considering, Hart Law Office can review proposed contracts and clearly answer any questions you have about the terms and conditions. We also work with companies to draft and negotiate contracts with other individuals and businesses.

Providing comprehensive due diligence for all types of transactions

More than common sense is required if you’re investigating the purchase of another firm or just making sure that there will be no surprises after signing a contract. With more then 46 years of combined experience, Hart Law Office can provide a comprehensive due diligence evaluation covering every factor you’ve considered, and probably some you’ve overlooked. We will perform reviews to ensure that all legal requirements are satisfied and all pertinent information is available to you before you finalize anything.

      I have found Richard to be fair over all with both parties in the capacity of a GAL. There is sometimes where he should not be as lenient in his recommendations, but that is just him using all his options.
