The attorneys of Going Ward have experience advising business clients in all stages of the business development cycle.  We regularly assist clients in selecting the appropriate business entity and organizational structure to meet their needs.  As part of the business formation process, our attorneys are experienced in organizing limited liability companies, general and limited partnerships, corporations, and S corporations.  We have extensive experience in drafting letters of intent, operating agreements, shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, and other organizational documents.

After formation, Going Ward provides assistance and advice to our business clients related to the day-to-day operations of the company.  We have experience counseling clients as to financing arrangements, organizational restructuring, contractual negotiations, and expansion including corporate mergers and asset acquisitions.  We regularly assist our clients by drafting or reviewing purchase and sale agreements, vendor contracts, employment contracts, non-competition agreements, lease agreements, and other business documents.

At the end of the business development cycle, Going Ward counsels clients through the process of dissolution, sale, or winding up of a business. Our attorneys will draft separation agreements and work with our clients to mitigate or resolve shareholder/member disputes.
