Business law is the area of law that deals with a variety of business matters, including the formation and organization of a new business, business negotiations, operational matters, and compliance with the many laws and regulations affecting businesses.

Purchase/Sale of a Business: Making the decision to buy or sell a business requires a thorough analysis of your financial positioning and a legal review to ensure that your personal and financial interests are protected. We are experienced in all aspects of the purchase and sale of a business including business partnership purchases, partnership dissolution, asset division, and corporate mergers.

Employer/Employee Relations: Any employee dispute can interfere with the successful operations of your business. Whether your business or another employee has been accused of wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, or a breach of contract, you want to resolve the dispute quickly and effectively to ensure the continuing and successful operations of your business.

Contracts: We can advise you of your rights and obligations before entering a contract. Our lawyers have over 20 years of experience negotiating, drafting, and reviewing employee contracts, purchase and sale agreements, and commercial real estate contracts. Before you enter into a contractual agreement, our lawyers can carefully draft or review your contracts with a fine eye for all the details.

Business formation: Before you begin business operations, it is important that you make appropriate decisions regarding what kind of business legal entity should be put in place to protect your business. At Bartlett & Weigle, we can help you decide what business entity is right for you based upon the nature of your business and tax considerations.
