Business Transactions


Serving the Needs of Businesses

Real World Business Experience

Our attorneys not only understand the law but also know firsthand the pressures and details of operating and growing a commercial enterprise. This enables the law firm of Brewer & Giggenbach to confidently and efficiently assist businesses with their legal needs.

Our attorneys handle business transactions for clients across a range of industries in West Virginia, as well as providing legally sound and commercially prudent solutions for:

  • Starting a business
  • Buy-sell transactions
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Acquiring facilities or equipment
  • Commercial real estate transactions
  • Commercial lease agreements
  • Contracts for purchase or sale of goods and services
  • Employee and independent contractor agreements
  • Business succession planning
  • Regulatory compliance issues

Business Formation — The Foundation for Success

The key for business startups is the choice of property entity. We consult with clients on taxes, management structure, and personal liability, and assist in advising whether to organize as a limited liability company (LLC), corporation (S corp, C corp), or partnership. We draft the shareholder, partnership, or operating agreement with an eye to exit strategies, profit sharing, and other considerations.

Business Transactions — Attention to Detail

Although we’ve handled large-scale transactions and litigation for large corporations, we primarily serve small and mid-sized companies as they grow, change owners, and conduct day-to-day business. Our clientele also includes commercial real estate developers and construction contractors in planned unit developments, subdivisions, and condominium conversions.

Brewer & Giggenbach drafts or reviews agreements, contracts, and leases in anticipation of conflicts, and with a focus on protective client solutions. We advise on parameters of the transaction, such as whether to conduct a merger through stock sales or asset sales. Should disputes arise from a business transaction, we have a reputation as effective commercial litigation attorneys.
