Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation consistently advises and represents companies of all sizes and at all stages of growth. Our success can be attributed to the innovative legal solutions we implement for corporations, professional firms, and entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Whether a business is starting up, growing, firmly established, or struggling, we have the expertise to provide effective legal counsel on virtually any issue, from business formation and complex transactions to the resolution of business tort claims and contract disputes.
California business entities can be formed in many ways, from traditional partnerships and corporations to hybrid forms such as limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs). The selection of the right entity depends on many factors related to the purpose and goals of the business, and impacts everything from taxation and liability issues to decisions regarding how the company will be managed, transferred or sold. Beyond helping companies form and start up their business, we help in negotiations, drafting or reviewing contracts related to business transactions from real estate issues to employment agreements and sales contracts. Our goal is to provide the assistance needed to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected and that their interests are well-represented.
Business disputes are inevitable and, when they occur, skilled representation is necessary to ensure a prompt, effective resolution. A satisfactory outcome requires the knowledge and experience of an attorney well-versed in mediation, arbitration and commercial litigation. At Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation, we provide strong, effective representation in contract disputes and business torts, as well as in business entity and partnership disputes. Our experience working with business clients at every stage means that we understand our clients’ immediate and long-term needs and work to achieve a result that keeps those goals in focus.
