Mergers and Acquisitions
Larsen & Risley offers comprehensive legal services designed to support the negotiation and transactional process leading up to the purchase, sale or reorganization of a business entity. We strive to provide timely guidance to our clients regarding the various transaction structures available and the tax consequences of each.
Larsen & Risley can also assist with the proper dissolution of various business entities, including corporations, partnerships, or limited liability companies. Dissolution typically includes the filing of appropriate documents with the Secretary of State’s office, obtaining various tax clearance certificates, and the distribution of any remaining assets to the respective shareholders, partners, or members.
Limited Liability Companies
Larsen & Risley uses the limited liability company (LLC) as a useful alternative to partnerships and corporations. For federal income tax purposes, an LLC properly structured will be treated as a pass-through entity.
