St. Simons Island Attorneys Handle Business and Corporate Matters

Knowledgeable Georgia lawyers advise clients throughout Glynn County and Southeast Georgia

Strong legal counsel helps businesses to overcome challenges and concentrate on achieving their goals. At Choate Harris P.C. on St. Simons Island, we offer a full range of business legal services for small to large companies operating in Georgia. Our attorneys assist businesses at all stages, from formation to expansion to dissolution. For clients in Glynn County and the Georgia coast, we draft essential documents, facilitate business expansion and aggressively litigate disputes. Our clients, many who have been with us for years, rely on us as dedicated partners in their companies’ drive toward prosperity.

Experienced counselors simplify the business formation process

Launching a new venture presents many challenges, but our business formation lawyers can walk you through each step, providing knowledgeable counsel on matters such as:

  • Entities — Our firm will explain the advantages of various business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships. From there, we can help you file the necessary documents with the Georgia Secretary of State and advise you on governing document needs and other decisions.
  • Permits — In many cases, you cannot open without obtaining necessary approvals from government authorities. Whatever your type of business, we’ll tell you what needs to be done and advocate for the required permits.
  • Business planning — Even established businesses struggle with managing growth. Whatever field you are in, our accomplished lawyers can help you with issues such as asset allocation, management structures, supply lines, and credit matters. We also assist with complex legal concerns including employment and franchise law.

Our understanding of businesses and the practical considerations that are crucial to their success helps you create a strong foundation for your enterprise.

Insightful advisers assist with transactions, contract drafting and contract review

Making the right deal can bring your business to the next level, but without legal guidance from a qualified attorney, you might not be able to close the transaction successfully. Our lawyers understand the intricate details of sales, purchases, dissolutions, and other major transactions. From the due diligence process through contract negotiations and financing, our lawyers work tirelessly to achieve the best result possible while protecting you against unexpected surprises.

Detail-oriented attorneys create and enforce contracts

No business can operate smoothly without the establishment and enforcement of proper contracts. For commercial transactions, real estate purchases and leases, customer and vendor contracts, and other contract matters, we are skilled negotiators who are equally comfortable drafting agreements and reviewing documents prepared by other parties. Likewise, if you seek assistance with a breach of contract claim or suspect that a party is not abiding by their contractual obligations, our firm will take assertive action on your behalf.

Effective lawyers give companies an advantage in business disputes

Many businesses retain a law firm for transactions, only to find they need another one for disputes. Then when a dispute arises, there might be costly delays as the litigator gets up to speed on the company’s business practices. We are experienced civil litigation advocates who can assess a situation immediately and take prompt action to protect your interests. As we aggressively seek a favorable result, we never overlook the effect that tactical decisions have on the reputation and success of your business.
