Get the Support You Need Along the Way

We are here to build a relationship with you, learn about your future goals, and find ways to support you as you work towards creating a successful business.

We can serve as your general counsel and be available when we are needed. You can call us, or make an appointment, and get the answers you need when you need them.

Our attorneys can make sure your business stays in compliance with local, state and federal laws. It is important for a business to maintain legal compliance. The intent of establishing a corporation or an LLC is to shield your personal assets. You must ensure that corporate governance is maintained and the appropriate documents are filed in order to preserve the protection you intended by setting up a business entity. Failure to do so can result in a loss of that corporate shield. We can help you stay on top of these requirements.

The firm also has employment and labor law attorneys that can assist you in developing and maintaining best practices in human resources.

In the event that you are faced with the unfortunate situation of defending a lawsuit against your business, or needing to sue someone, our civil litigation attorneys are also very experienced and ready to help.

Our real estate attorneys can help you with matters related to real property from buying a small farm to developing a large shopping center.

Then when it is time to retire or move on, we can help you with business succession planning or the sale of your business. The firm has attorneys who can assist with estate planning so you may pass your business on to the next generation in your family or as you prefer.

Barney McKenna & Olmstead can handle nearly every aspect of legal needs a business owner may have.
