Ultimately, you have to make these decisions.  But they are too important to make without all the necessary information.  Matt will advise you of your options, along with the costs and benefits of those options.

As a business owner, Matt understands not only the legal aspects of the business world, but also the everyday challenges and opportunities business owners face.  

There are decisions with legal ramifications at every juncture of a business venture.  At the beginning, do you need a corporation, an LLC, a partnership or sole proprietorship?  The same questions apply as your business grows or you take on an investor or add a partner.  Matt can also prepare proper documents to protect you if you are buying or selling a business.

You need to be sure you have insulated yourself from liability as well as you can.  This includes not only the form of business, but also your contracts or leases with clients or vendors.  

Long term and business continuity planning are also important.  What happens if you or a partner die or become unable to work for a period of time?  Matt can help you make a plan and discuss the proper insurance and other tools to have in place to prepare for these contingencies and be sure your business and family are protected.

Commercial real estate law is very different from residential law.  We assist clients in a variety of commercial transactions, from buying or selling a hotel or apartment complex to buying or selling tracts of land for residential development.  We prepare HOA documents, developer contracts, and other documents and agreements needed for commercial property ownership, development, business use or transfer.

In South Carolina, you must have an attorney handle your real estate closing.  We represent clients who are buying or selling real estate, refinancing, or taking out a home equity line.  

We advise clients on matters of ownership and prepare transfer deeds, contracts, leases, easements, and any other document you may need for residential real estate ownership or transfer.
