Douglas S. Gregory, P.A. prides itself on being a one-stop shop for companies of all sizes. Our goal is to help companies at all stages of development, beginning from entity choice and formation when the business plan is in flux and ending when the company is successfully acquired by, or acquires, other leaders in the industry.
For new businesses, we can help you understand what business entity will be the most appropriate vehicle to address your particular situation. We can put the necessary documents and plans in place to allow you to focus on the growth and development of your products or services, including operating agreements, shareholders agreements, bylaws, employment agreements and distributorship, manufacturing and shipping agreements. As you expand, we can help you acquire new office space, either through purchase or lease, and grow the company’s assets. Our experience in corporate governance will assist you in ensuring that you are following all necessary corporate formalities including holding annual meetings, properly documenting company decisions and abiding by the applicable state law as it relates to your company’s management.
For existing businesses, we can guide you through difficult business decisions and implementing your growth plan. Whether your need is to raise capital, negotiate the best terms for a commercial loan, take your company public, resolve employment disputes or develop your succession plan, we have the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively and efficiently help you reach your business goals. We can also assist you with shareholder disputes, avoiding takeovers, and bringing and resolving derivative actions.
Our clients have included public and private companies and profit and non-profit entities of all sizes and across a broad range of industries. We understand that, in order to be your most effective advocate we must first understand your business, your industry and your objectives.
