Tax Planning & Resolution

The Internal Revenue Code excites our attorneys. We specialize in relieving the aches and pains associated with getting that dreaded IRS Notice. We thrive on providing information that allows our clients to make savvy decisions when it comes to creating their business structures, changing their business structures, or making decisions that utilize the Tax Code in the most beneficial way.

No one wants to find themselves in a legal conflict or dispute, but if you find yourself there, our lawyers are here to support you!

Corporate Law

Smart Counsel's transactional attorneys can negotiate anywhere from simple agreements to more complex transactions on behalf of our clients. 

Smart Counsel also acts as fractional general counsel for clients who have a more direct need for day-to-day legal assistance but do not need a full-time in-house attorney. Under those circumstances, our attorneys act as an integral part of our client's daily business, where we participate in board meetings, maintain corporate records, and assist in all transactions with third parties on behalf of our clients.

Engaging in a Merger or Acquisition can be a significant part of your business growth. Smart Counsel lawyers are here to assist you as you navigate this process so you can continue focusing on your daily duties and avoid costly mistakes along the way. 

Keep reading below to explore a few areas where we can support you (in plain English)! 

  • Due Diligence: Ensuring companies on both sides of a deal have crossed their Ts and dotted their Is! 
  • Mergers: Joining forces with another company to create a bigger footprint in the industry.
  • Acquisitions: A bigger fish eats a smaller one (also to grow in its sector).
  • Divestitures: The sale of a business or division to focus on streamlining.
  • Joint Ventures: Two parties decide to do something together but keep their companies separate. 
  • Exit Strategies: The sale of the complete business. 

These transactions can be highly complex, sometimes requiring heavy negotiations for pricing adjustments, debt repayment structures, or even continued focus on post-closing obligations.  

We are here to support you while you continue growing your business!

Our approach to assisting clients with strategic planning uses S.M.A.R.T. strategic planning tools to help identify a client's desired outcome and assist in project planning to achieve the goal most efficiently and cost-effectively.  

S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound efforts.  

Smart Counsel uses the S.M.A.R.T. method to focus our efforts on setting specific and measurable goals to pinpoint the definition of what a win would be for the client. Throughout our engagement, we measure and record progress to provide clients with tangible evidence of success. 

We can help with Startups, Business Planning and Growth, and Exit Strategies.
