The attorneys at Morris Russell take time to understand our clients’ short and long-term objectives to help them select the proper business structure to accomplish these goals. Our lawyers know the advantages and disadvantages of using corporations, general and limited partnerships, limited liability companies, and limited liability partnerships. For small and privately held businesses, in consultation with the client’s tax advisor we recommend organizational structures suited to each client's tax, estate planning, and business succession needs.

Morris Russell's lawyers also assist clients with negotiation and drafting of contracts and sales agreements, and counsel them on compliance with applicable laws, regulations and standards. We work closely with clients as their businesses grow, from drafting ownership agreements to assisting with employment or labor law issues when employees are hired or terminated.

In addition, we have experience assisting clients with mergers and acquisitions, and also with sales of businesses and business assets. Our attorneys will guide our clients through the challenges of these processes while analyzing assets and debts to facilitate the desired outcome.
