How We Can Help Your Business

When you hire Greenwood Law to represent your business, we will always be here for you when you need us. We are prepared to assist with individual transactions as well as provide tailored support on an ongoing basis. 

Our Rock Island business attorney can assist you with:

Entity Formation and Structuring

  • Entity Formation. If you are looking to start a new business, you will need to choose an entity. This decision will impact how you and your business is taxed, the level of personal liability you will be exposed to, and how your company will be organized. We can help you explore your options and take the steps to form a limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership (LP), C or S corporation, or any other type of entity that is consistent with your goals. In addition to filing registration documents with the state, we will review the reporting and other legal requirements your business entity must meet.
  • Risk Management. It is in your best interest to proactively detect and deal with risks before they become serious problems with adverse consequences. We can help you assess and respond to preventable risks (which occur within your organization), strategy risks (some of which are inevitable as you work to grow your business), and external risks (which occur outside your company). Our firm can recommend customized strategies for risk avoidance and reduction.
  • Mergers and Acquisitions. As a business owner, you may at some point have the opportunity to acquire, merge with, or sell to another business. These transactions are fundamentally complicated and require a meticulous level of due diligence. We can review the proposed deal and advise whether proceeding is in your best interest. Our legal professional can also represent you throughout the process and help manage any issues that arise, including regulatory scrutiny. 
  • Employment Disputes. Personnel problems can quickly become significant issues, particularly if an employee decides to take legal action against your business. Our firm helps our clients take steps to limit the possibility of damaging litigation, including the implementation of comprehensive employment agreements, arbitration agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and other powerful instruments. We can also advise on best practices for company policies, employee handbooks, and how to handle individual disputes.

If you are ready to find out if we are a good fit for your business, call (309) 790-7003 or contact us online.
