Rosenthal Meyer provides a wide array of services to businesses of all sizes – from formation and initial document drafting to ongoing contract review and even mergers and acquisitions. We are able to assist in document review, due diligence, and negotiations.
Rosenthal Meyer can also provide legal checkup services, reviewing your business’s legal health – looking at the status of contracts, the legality of your employee manual and policies, and your document retention policy among other things. By taking a proactive approach, you can shut down problems before they occur and protect your business.
We are also able to draft the important documents that your business will rely upon – from contracts and non-disclosure / confidentiality agreements to operating/partnership agreements and buy-sell agreements. These documents are crafted to achieve your goals and protect your interests, taking into consideration the tax and legal implications of each decision.
For our clients, Rosenthal Meyer also offers a retainer program, allowing business owners to predict some of their legal fees and never have to worry about calling. Please contact us for more information on this program.

At Rosenthal Meyer, we understand that despite the best efforts on the part of business owners, conflicts and disputes still occur. The nature of business ownership can lead to litigation despite all attempts to avoid it.
Our attorneys bring knowledge and experience to business law matters. We have worked with business owners of companies large and small, in enterprises that cross industry sectors. We offer trusted counsel and guidance when legal issues arise.
Much of our business and commercial law services center around non-dispute situations, i.e. instances where legal counsel is needed for the set-up of an entity, establishing protection of an asset, or writing into contract an arrangement between groups or partners.
Business Setup, Employment, Franchise and Agreements
Business law encompasses correct business entity formation, factoring in personal liability, tax advantages, the number of owners, etc. Our attorneys provide counsel in the selection of appropriate business forms—limited liability, “C” corporation, “S” corporation, limited partnership, or other.
Some clients set up nonprofit corporations which involve different considerations. Our attorneys advise on this kind of organization registry and the legal compliance and tax exemption issues around it.
Joint Ventures and Partnerships
When a business owner is considering a joint venture, entering a partnership, or putting legal protections into place, our attorneys are ready and able to advise. We help clients organize company forms and structures, and draft partnership agreements, LLC operating agreements, and corporate shareholder agreements. We also put protections into place in the event of a business dissolution or if an owner is unexpectedly removed from his or her business.
Once a business is set up, our attorneys help clients with subsequent phases of development, such as negotiating leases and purchase agreements, negotiating contracts with clients, and providing support and counsel in all kinds of business transactions.
When a business has employees, is a franchise, or is undergoing construction, legal considerations can require attorney support and counsel. In matters regarding protecting your trademarks and copyrights, our attorneys stands by to assist.
At Rosenthal Meyer, we emphasize clear and robust communication, a thorough assessment of risk, and efficient service. We seek to build solid, on-going relationships with our business clients, believing that we offer important legal services that will be necessary and valuable at various stages in the span of the client’s business.
