New Mexico Business Lawyer

Business Law Attorney

We offer a full range of services in the area of business law including contract formation, sales, commercial paper, agency, employment law, natural resource law, business organizations, property, insurance, consumer and creditor protection, and many more. When beginning a new business venture, our experienced professionals can assist you and work with other professionals in forming a business entity tailored to meet your business needs.

We can help you buy or sell a small business, manage the legal aspects of a business, deal with employee issues, form the contracts needed to protect your business or file documents to form your business entity. There are agencies at the state and federal level which govern and regulate businesses. We will assist you in navigating the maze of regulations and laws required to run your business. We aim to protect you and your business from unnecessary liability and put you in the best position to succeed and be profitable.

Our existing business clients cover a variety of industries, including ranching, farming, oil and gas, property management and development, and banking just to name a few. The needs and concerns of each client are unique because each industry has its own peculiar issues. Beyond that, each client is at a different stage of maturity.
The unique needs of a family business (closely-held business)

Small business owners, in particular, need specialized advice. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish the person or family who built the business from the business itself. Because we have valuable experience with such closely-held businesses, we know how to best advise you.

It is often the wish of small business owners to keep the business family within the family. We work closely with owners of family businesses to achieve that goal in the best way possible. In fact, small business planning is often best coupled with careful estate planning to ensure that a client’s wishes during their working life are not destroyed upon their death or incapacity.
Experience and advice at all stages of your business

Your business may be just an idea, or the business may have been a part of the community for decades. Our business planning and business law lawyers are ready to assist you no matter what stage you are in. We can help you form the entity and protect your idea or dream. We can also provide valuable assistance to your business in brokering a deal or forming a contract.
