Contract Law and Business Transactions

The attorneys at Orlowsky & Wilson, Ltd are able to review and decipher complicated business contracts and arrangements that are essential to the proper management and running of a successful business. We have much experience handling the negotiations and sale of a business and associated intangible and tangible assets and fully understand the tax implications of such transactions. If you are selling a manufacturing business with significant depreciated fixed assets knowledge of the tax consequences is critical to a successful sale. The allocation of a sale price in and among depreciable real estate, land, equipment, furniture, and fixtures are problematic and tax issues are unavoidable. Orlowsky & Wilson, Ltd can be there from the beginning of the transaction until its successful conclusion and will draft, review and file all the necessary paperwork so you avoid tax as well as transactional pitfalls.
