Business Law Services Services
“I don’t know as I want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell me how to do what I want to do…” — J. P. Morgan
What clients want is what Morgan wanted: help in achieving their goals. Today, many lawyers have no idea of their clients’ goals and dreams, and would never consider offering something as unlawyerly as “business advice.” That’s the difference you’ll experience working with Altitude Community Law. We’ll be your business law partner, supporting you for all your business needs.
We offer complete legal services for your business:
Entity formation, business startup
Complete support for starting your new business endeavor, including business licenses, choice of entity, LLC, partnership, shareholder and other agreements, bylaws, articles of incorporation and organization, human resources, insurance and other practical legal and business services.
Real estate purchases, sales, leases and financing
Real estate transactions can be the most significant deals for a business, both in financial investment, time commitment and risk. Let us help remove the risk and protect you throughout these transactions. We provide all levels of legal service, from review of simple leases; drafting documents such as promissory notes, deeds of trust and deeds; to negotiating and documentation of complex, multi-party purchase and sale transactions.
Contract drafting and negotiation
Contracts drafted, interpreted, negotiated and enforced. We provide the level of service you need and want, from general recommendations about contracting, to reviewing a contract you prepared, to creating a form contract for future use, to negotiating and documenting a complex business transaction.

As your business grows and changes, we’ll provide the legal service and advice you need to accomplish your goals.

Corporate governance, strategic planning and business consulting
One of the most important things we can do for your business is help you innovate and grow. We’re passionate about practicing preventative law, and supporting your business objectives as your business law partner. David Closson’s MBA and practical business experience may be the most useful aspects of our legal representation. How do we help you grow? Examples include support for annual and other board meetings, strategic planning and business consulting. We also offer complete corporate governance services including serving as your registered agent, assisting with disclosure requirements, board resolutions and other practical assistance. You can let us handle it, or let us educate you so you can do it all yourself – whatever works best.
