Frequently Asked Questions about Licensed Professionals Legal Services
Be sure to build a team of experienced professionals to help you through the process. The critical players are accountants and attorneys with deep industry experience who do the same deal that you will be doing regularly.
Generally, it is the question of whether to rent or own. If a licensed professional has no experience or interest in managing commercial real estate, leasing may be a better fit. If licensed professionals are interested in paying themselves rent, then looking at acquisition or ground-up development can be a great fit. Suppose a licensed professional is going to acquire commercial real estate. In that case, it is critical for the licensed professional to engage a commercial broker with deep industry experience, a commercial real estate attorney, and the various professionals who help with planning and diligence such as architects, surveyors, and environmental professionals.
We help associates negotiate their associate contracts coming right out of school. The next step is to assist in the purchase of a practice or the buy-in. We provide regular advice regarding real estate, employment, estate planning, and general corporate matters as the business matures.
