Seasoned Worcester Business Law Attorneys Provide Comprehensive Services

A valuable resource for the life of your business

Starting and maintaining a business is a challenge. In addition to supervising day-to-day operations, business owners and managers must contend with routine and special legal issues ranging from employment concerns to licensing requirements. As a new business owner, tackling these issues on your own can lead to mistakes and complications. And even if you’re an established business owner, managing these issues without help can draw your attention away from other important business concerns. With more than 35 years of history in the Worcester business community, Gould & Ettenberg, P.C. can be a valuable asset to Massachusetts businesses of all types and sizes.

How we can help

Through our comprehensive business law practice, our Worcester attorneys provide transactional counsel and litigation representation for a wide array of business and commercial issues:

  • Business formation — With a thorough understanding of Massachusetts business organization law, our attorneys offer business formation services to new ventures, providing them with the liability protection and tax benefits that they need. We draft comprehensive agreements and other formative documents designed to protect your investment and promote healthy relations between stakeholders.

  • Mergers and acquisitions — As businesses become increasingly successful, they may seek to absorb the resources and market share of their competitors through mergers and acquisitions. We help businesses negotiate these complex transactions, comply with corporate formalities and obtain approval from their shareholders or other stakeholders.
  • Buying or selling a business — Assigning value to a business can be a difficult and highly subjective endeavor. We help clients negotiate fair and comprehensive contracts when buying or selling a business and assist with due diligence during business purchases.
  • Employment issues — Our Worcester attorneys assist HR departments in drafting and instituting policies that minimize employment issues and provide aggressive defense during employment litigation.

Contract services

Well-drafted contracts are often the most effective means of avoiding expensive and time-consuming litigation. Our contract lawyers draw on more than a century of combined legal experience to assist businesses of all types in drafting form contracts for their routine transactions. For larger transactions that demand specific attention, our Worcester attorneys can negotiate and draft documents that memorialize your intentions and review any proposals by the other side to determine their full legal impact.
