Business and Corporate Law

"Increasing confidence in your business"

Niles Barton has been representing business clients since its inception in 1838, so we understand the intricacies of today’s business. From start-ups to public companies, there are many challenges in starting, buying, selling and managing businesses from negotiating and drafting contracts, managing employees, understanding and complying with government rules and regulations, to resolving conflicts between owners. Our corporate attorneys understand these challenges, so we help clients deal with legal issues and problems that impact their business. Our business lawyers provide solutions from cost-effective company formation to strategic legal and business advice throughout the company growth stages. 

Many clients consult us specifically on sale, acquisition and merger matters. These transactions are about more than just money. Businesspeople have many reasons to buy, sell or merge a company, such as the injection of new capital or the acquisition of market share, growth, technology, experienced personnel, new clients, or new products or services. At Niles Barton, our attorneys understand these different goals and advise clients on the best way to handle the challenges and issues as they go through the sale, acquisition or merger process. 

We counsel clients in a broad range of industries and have specific industry expertise in the areas of banking and finance, construction, healthcare, insurance, real estate and development, information technology, small business and nonprofits.
