Located in Cerritos near the port of Long Beach between Los Angeles and Orange County, Sarah Patricia Condor, Attorney at Law, provides advice and representation in corporate law matters throughout Southern California and statewide. Our corporate law practice includes entity formation and corporate governance, advice and transactional assistance, and litigation and dispute resolution.
Entity Formation and Corporate Governance
The initial selection of the type of entity within which to operate your business is a critical decision. Entity selection dictates how matters such as individual liability, tax consequences, management and control, and business succession and dissolution may be handled. We take the time to learn your goals and needs regarding your business so that we can advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of the different corporate forms in your particular situation.
We organize businesses using all the available structures under California law, including:
- Limited Liability Companies
- Limited Partnerships
- General Partnerships
- Limited Liability Partnerships
- Sole Proprietorships
Our office prepares and files all the necessary documents to register your company with the state. We draft corporate charters, articles of incorporation, by-laws, and operating agreements, and negotiate, draft, or review partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, member agreements, buy-sell agreements, and other contracts and documents necessary to establish the company in the interests of the owners.
In addition, we continue to provide corporate governance throughout the life of your company, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and providing a solid, working corporate structure. We are available to maintain corporate books and records, prepare for annual meetings and annual reports, etc.
Advice and Transactional Assistance
We are available at any time to provide advice and assistance with any corporate legal matter. We advise officers and directors on legal issues and risk management strategies, as well as compliance with corporate laws and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, such as Sarbanes-Oxley or Dodd-Frank. We also provide transactional advice and representation in a wide variety of contracts, including technology and intellectual property matters. We can also help draft employment agreements and executive compensation packages, as well as ancillary documents such as covenants not to compete, nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements, and protection of trade secrets. From the stockroom to the boardroom, we keep you covered and in compliance.
When corporate power struggles or disputes arise, we provide strong, effective representation to resolve the dispute efficiently and effectively through litigation or alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration. We provide representation in partnership or shareholder disputes, corporate restructurings, hostile takeovers, mergers & acquisitions, business dissolutions, business succession disagreements, officer and director disputes, and more.
