Business Organizations & Transactions


Multitasking. A now-familiar term meaning the performance of various seemingly unrelated actions all at once, hopefully without crashing. Even the most computer-challenged business owner understands the concept.

Consider the day-to-day legal issues you confront, many without the benefit of legal counsel at your elbow:

  • Should I be in business as a partnership, a corporation or a limited liability company?
  • Should I raise equity capital or borrow?
  • What should I look out for in my lease?
  • Are these loan covenants fair?
  • Can I fire this employee?
  • Should I buy this business by stock or asset purchase?
  • How can I get out of this contract?

You can’t run out and hire a lawyer every time a question comes up affecting your business operations. But as your business grows, the questions get harder and the stakes get higher. Bean, Kinney & Korman understands these basic facts of business life and offers knowledgeable and practical advice as and when you need it.

Understands Your Business

Knowledge of the law is essential to being a lawyer and knowledge of your business is essential to being an advisor. We have extensive familiarity with a range of industries , giving us a head start on understanding the “real world” issues that often drive legal analysis. And what we don’t know, we’re eager to learn. We often invest time “off the clock” to learn your business model and your industry, and we consider it part of our commitment to our client relationships.

Being Part of the Solution

Sometimes, as Charles Dickens observed, “the law is a ass – a idiot.” That doesn’t mean your lawyer has to be. In business, finding constructive solutions is more important than having the last word. Responding to legal questions isn’t an academic exercise, it’s an integral part of your decision making. We are advisors and counselors, not just mindless hired guns.

You have to be flexible and innovative to survive. So do we. Let us know what we can do to support your business needs, and we will assure that your lawyers are a valued business asset, not an unending liability.
