Our firm’s Everett-based legal team assists with the transfer of ownership interests in closely-held businesses throughout Snohomish County, as well as neighboring areas in Washington State. This includes ownership interests in small and medium-size businesses of nearly every type, including LLC member shares, corporate stock, and partnership interests. It also includes stock options, such as options for employees and executives. We do not assist with the transfer of stock in publicly traded companies, nor do we participate in initial public offerings. We can, however, refer clients to appropriate attorneys at other firms if they require business law services we do not provide.
Businesses and their owners typically choose our firm because of its high-quality, low-overhead approach. Generally speaking, our attorneys graduated from higher-ranked universities and/or with higher class standing than our local competitors, and we charge appreciably less per hour. Call us at 866-631-0028 to learn more.
