Business & Tax

Our practice covers the entire “life cycle” of a business – from the initial start-up phase and evaluation of the appropriate organizational structure, to the various complexities that follow a successful business, to its ultimate sale or transfer to descendants.

Our transactional services include private debt/equity offerings, financing agreements, vendor and distributor agreements, employment agreements, shareholder stock restriction agreements, and the acquisition and disposition of companies.

We are nationally recognized in the Texas tax arena, particularly regarding state franchise and sales tax issues. Additionally, our partners and associates offer years of experience with federal tax planning for small to Fortune 500-size companies, as well as for individuals and partnerships. We also have proven skills representing clients when tax controversies arise.

Our substantial tax practice naturally complements our real estate capabilities, from evaluating the tax aspects of a partnership arrangement to accomplishing a tax-deferred transaction.
