Business and Taxation
We help for-profit and not-for profit businesses, corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and privately owned
businesses with their business and tax law needs. We also provide tax planning and advice to individuals and trusts.

Much of our work focuses on helping clients form and manage the most effective business entity for their operations, and we have advised on the formation, rights, obligations and (where applicable) dissolution of partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies. On the transactional side our lawyers prepare and review private and commercial sales, leasing, banking and secured transaction documents.

Success in transactions involving the purchase and sale of businesses and real estate often hinges on effective minimization of tax liabilities. Noland Hamerly lawyers are skilled at special use valuations, the creation of trusts and other tax-effective entities, and the structuring of like-kind exchanges to accomplish client tax objectives. If tax controversies arise we represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service and various California tax administrative departments and agencies.

We assist individuals and large and small businesses alike with structuring loans and refinancings, including security and collateral issues. Our finance counsel encompasses a wide range of debt transactions, including letters of credit, commercial paper, sale and lease financing, refinancings, negotiable instruments, and financing of accounts receivable.

Other Business Concerns
Our attorneys can help business clients with a variety of other general business needs, such as:

  • Ensuring their intellectual property rights through trademark and trade secret protection, copyright protection, infringement litigation, and effective e-commerce strategies.

  • Handling employment and labor matters, as well as pension, profit-sharing, ERISA, employment agreements and various other compensation-related issues.
