“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Preparing to Close a Business? Contact Your Austin Business Lawyer
Closing a business often requires more steps than starting it. It is critical to consult with an experienced business lawyer to make sure that nothing is overlooked. At my Austin, Texas law firm, I use years of experience to represent clients throughout Central Texas, helping them close businesses while protecting their interests and their assets.
Guiding Clients Through the Closing of a Business
I guide my clients through the steps of closing a business. This often begins with a vote to dissolve the business, as mandated by the articles of incorporation, partnership agreement or articles of organization. I draft the dissolution plan and documents executing the plan.
As a CPA and attorney, I assist appraisers in business valuation. Valuation is a necessary step that can prevent future litigation between business owners. Valuations also provide evidence justifying the figures used on a business’s final tax return.
I help my clients work out any contracts or obligations that extend beyond the closing date. I also assist with the preparation and filing of dissolution papers with the state. Many business organizations — including LLCs, LLPs and Limited partnerships — are required to notify the state that they have dissolved.
The quality of my work is well-recognized by my clients. Personal service and a commitment to excellence are hallmarks of my law firm. My clients have access to me by e-mail and cell phone 24/7/365 throughout the duration of a business divorce case.
