Commercial and Transactional Law

Business Entities

We represent clients from the planning stages to the wind-down of business entities and at all points between. Our entity clients include those formed in South Dakota and conducting business here or requiring registration in other states and those formed elsewhere and seeking South Dakota business registration, registered agent services or other legal representation. Our comprehensive legal services are designed to assure the continuing existence of the entity and to insure the liability protections, effective governance structure and other benefits of a range of business entity structures.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We’ve represented clients in mergers, consolidation, tender offer, and, most frequently, acquisition of assets. We provide counsel in the pre-negotiation, negotiation, and transactional stages of the process with emphasis upon minimizing risk and, whenever possible, maintaining a collegial atmosphere as the parties and counsel work toward finalization of the deal.

Creditor’s Rights

We represent banks and other lenders not only in the enforcement of their rights in mediations and in State and Bankruptcy Courts, but also in the creation of loan documents, perfection of collateral interests, loan reviews and collection strategy. We also represent individuals and entities in the creation, preservation and enforcement of their creditor status, whether based upon contract, open account or otherwise.
