Business Services

Starting or expanding a current business is an exciting venture. There are a number of things to consider, from how your business should be formed ( LLC, Partnership, S-Corp, etc.) to licensing and contract review. Darling / Duffy understands local, state, and federal laws and regulations and how those may affect your business. We also advise existing businesses in legal matters including:

  • Business acquisitions
  • Business planning
  • Debt collection
  • Document drafting and review (contracts, leases, agreements)
  • Liens
  • Liquor licenses
  • Property tax appeals
  • Security agreements

Real Estate

The team at Darling / Duffy utilizes three decades of real estate practice experience when representing clients. Whether it is a commercial or residential issue, we represent builders and developers, landlords and tenants, sellers and purchasers. In addition to negotiating leases and contracts, and managing foreclosures, we work with city officials and appear before Planning and Zoning Boards on our client’s behalf.

Contracts & Transitions

Our lawyers are available for drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts of all types for businesses in all industries. Darling / Duffy protects the interests of your business while at the same time minimizing your exposure to liability through a well-drafted contract. Darling / Duffy can also draft or improve your pre-existing contracts.

Business Disputes

When handling a business dispute, there is no “off-the-shelf” solution to fit each case. The attorneys at Darling / Duffy understand that each dispute has its own set of circumstances and facts. Business disputes can involve breach of contract, fraud, negligent representation, partnership disputes, and other issues. It is important to have a lawyer who understands the legal and business issues involved along with the trial experience to handle a dispute that must go to court to be resolved.
