Helping Businesses Form
At Gellhaus & Gellhaus, P.C., we help small and midsized business owners address their legal challenges while allowing them to focus on what they do best: running their businesses.
If you are interested in starting a business in northeastern South Dakota, we offer a complete range of business law services, including the essential first step of business formation and entity selection. There are several business structures available to choose from, including:
- Sole proprietorship
- Limited liability company (LLC)
We can help you evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of each entity type, choose the one that makes the most sense for you and establish your business. We can advise you of the legal implications of your business decisions — and, as small-business owners ourselves, we understand your concerns and challenges firsthand.
Given the breadth of our practice, we can also assist you with other issues that can arise during business formation. We can help you pursue financing, develop policies and secure the appropriate real estate for your business.
Business Purchases And Acquisition
If your business is growing and expanding, it is probably a sign that you are doing something right. When the time comes to merge with another business or purchase an existing entity, it is wise to work with a proven business lawyer who can help you through the transaction smoothly and keep an eye out for any legal pitfalls that may arise.
If you need advice about a transaction that could affect the size, structure or scope of your business, we can help. We have helped many business owners conduct mergers, acquisitions and divestitures that protect their businesses and prevent disputes and litigation down the road.
