Company Records & Administration
Today’s smaller mid-sized businesses are complex. There may be multiple layers of ownership, separate businesses connected to the entity that do completely different things. Or, a variety of people are involved with the business, some not part of the day-to-day operations.
Due diligence can protect you from a disastrous relationship. Some of the ways our attorneys can help include:
- Before a merger, acquisition or joint venture
- Before buying or selling a business
The point of a written contract is to create clarity as to what each party’s rights and obligations are. When you enter into any kind of business or arrangement, you want to reduce your risk as much as possible. And that clarity will protect you later if a regulatory question arises.

Record keeping is not solely about fulfilling regulations or legal requirements. Record keeping is also about understanding your business, now and in the future. Without a proper record keeping system, tracking important details of your business may be impossible. Among other things, that can affect your inventory, a possible need for additional financing, being able to meet buyer’s demands – all leading to problems serving your customers. At Margrave Celmins, P.C., we have helped clients avoid these errors for more than thirty years.
