Dallas Law Firm Provides Essential Business Planning

NDHA helps clients start their own businesses. 
The firm reviews your business plans and advises on issues involved in business formation and operation, including (1) selecting the proper type of entity for your business, and (2) the tax and management ramifications and the potential liabilities arising from selecting a particular type of entity. Once your business has been established, we continue to help it grow by advising you on common operational and compliance issues, thereby increasing your bottom line and limiting your risk of personal liability.

Helping business owners move forward
NDHA works closely with business owners to ensure that their businesses run smoothly.  We often negotiate and draft contracts and buy-sell agreements, assist with corporate compliance measures and, when necessary, advise on both daily operations and major decisions such as a sale or acquisition.

Business Startup Services

Starting a business requires thorough business and tax planning. The formation of a legally sound business entity is a crucial part of this process. To ensure that this is accomplished, NDHA will assist you in selecting the appropriate type of entity, as well as selecting the appropriate jurisdiction for formation, from among the following alternatives:

  • Subchapter C-corporation
  • Subchapter S-corporation
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Partnership formation (including general, limited or  LLP)
  • Joint Ventures

NDHA also drafts or provides advice pertaining to shareholder agreements, membership agreements or partnership agreements as part of the entity formation process.

Our firm can guide business owners in the multi-stage process of buying or selling a business, including:

  • Advising on the structure of the transaction
  • Negotiation of terms and drafting of the deal memorandum
  • Advising sellers on legal strategies to address issues raised during the due diligence process
  • Advising buyers on conducting legal due diligence
  • Drafting, reviewing and negotiating the extensive documentation involved in a business transaction, such as asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements and security agreements
