IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE INVOLVED IN ANY REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS, HIRING A REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY CAN SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY.
Real estate attorneys specialize in negotiating prices and terms, meeting deadlines, and corresponding between loans.

We call it planning for success with the end in mind. Whenever you are entering into business with another party, it is essential to define roles, and what will happen to the parties’ business interests should disability, death, divorce, or termination from the company occur. Investors and entrepreneurs set themselves up for success when these issues are addressed from the beginning.
It is never too late to plan for success. We encourage our client entrepreneurs to build a foundation by planning the exit strategy from the beginning; however, most entrepreneurs have been so focused on making money that this area of their business plan has gone unattended. If you want your company to grow and/or scale, business succession planning will be key in navigating that venture.
Greer Law, P.C. is experienced in business planning, negotiating, and drafting agreements to guide the company to the next level.
Business planning providers and venture capitalists, private investors, and business valuation experts will agree that in any kind of growth opportunity there is a need to be able to finance and close a deal quickly. One of the biggest hold ups in a business transaction is when a company’s due diligence is not in order. Not only does due diligence take time, but it takes significant amount of money to prepare for a transaction. If you are making a move for growth, that is time and money that should be used on other things. For that reason, we advise all my growth focused entrepreneurs to have the company’s records, agreements, structure, and documents all maintained and ready to present on demand and at an affordable expense.
