Legal Advisors Assisting Businesses at Every Step

The attorneys in Copeland Cook’s Business team advise businesses and their owners in a broad range of industries, beginning with the startup and continuing throughout the business life-cycle.

Agreements and Contracts

Our Business attorneys have expertise in structuring business transactions (including tax implications), and we utilize that expertise when negotiating and preparing transaction documents such as leases, supply contracts, employment agreements, non-compete agreements, and buy-sell agreements.

Tax Advice

We also have experience in assisting clients with economic-development incentives. We often advise clients regarding tax-incentive programs, the use of private-activity bonds in financing projects, and the negotiation and preparation of ad-valorem tax exemptions and fee-in-lieu agreements.


We have extensive knowledge and experience in entity formation and organization. We routinely advise clients regarding choice-of-entity considerations, negotiation and preparation of entity-governance documents, and the structure of debt and equity.
