Many business ventures start out with great hopes and strong business plan. Their success, however, is usually based on their ability to change or move in another direction as market demand, infrastructure, employment law and regulations lead changes in that initial plan. These changes may result in differences of opinion among the original partners and their goals. Perhaps there is a resolution that offers less risk to partners if they utilize a limited liability company (LLC), S-corp or partnership. Each is governed by different provisions under Rhode Island and Massachusetts law.

The McCormick Law Offices has a strong background in both business and business law. Before passing the bar in 1990, Ed McCormick worked in the fields of finance, accounting, government and business. This background still serves him today, giving him a deep understanding of how businesses work and the challenges they face during all phases of their life span. While it is wise to work with an attorney early in the process to avoid making little mistakes that later become big ones, our firm can also help your company grow or change direction to avoid disputes, compliance violations or administrative issues. Our experience with negotiating and discussing possible outcomes has helped clients reach a resolution that is quick and much less costly than litigation.
