Business Transactions

Overview

Our passion is to provide quality advice to business owners concerning a variety of business issues. Dolce Law provides comprehensive legal advice for businesses at any stage. Whether you are just starting out, expanding, selling or transitioning a business to the next generation, we can assist with all your legal needs, including liability protection, valuation and tax complexities.

Start-up

When starting a business it is important to fully understand your long-term goals as well as your immediate needs. How many owners will there be? How is your business going to be taxed? Do you want to grow and sell the business quickly? Are you going to be a silent investor or an active participant in the business? What kind of bull-sell agreement do you need? Are your ownership right protected in the shareholder or operating agreement? These are important questions that drive how you start a business.

Mid-life

During your day-to-day activities issues arise that require expert advice on your ongoing business. If you need contracts reviewed or drafted, employment issues resolved or tax advice, I can assist in a variety of ways. Are you having issues with reorganization? Do you need to convert from an LLC to a Corporation? These issues can be complex with serious ramifications if not completed properly.

Transition

Successful owners have a comprehensive business plan. No business plan is complete without a complimentary estate plan to protect the years of work you have put into building your business. Are you selling your business? Is it an asset purchase or a stock purchase? What does that even mean? Do you desire to transfer the business to the next generation? How much is your business worth? These questions and many more exist. I can assist you in understanding these complexities and help guide you through so that you maximize your position.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is a vital concept that everyone, young and old need to consider.  Protect your assets from estate tax and transfer your wealth to your family.  Protect your children in the event of an untimely disaster.

I take a personalized approach to my estate planning.  I believe every situation is unique and requires a thorough evaluation of your individual needs.  I strive to build a relationship with my clients in order to develop respect and trust.  Estate planning can be uncomfortable because it requires all of us to discuss events we would rather not talk about.

Please let me partner with you and your loved ones to develop a unique plan that is right for you.

Tax Advice

Overview

The complexity of the United States tax code can be confusing at best. Let me bring some guidance and support to your tax situation. Whether you are involved in taxable transactions for your business or looking to protect your assets through estate planning, my experience will allow me to lead you and help you understand tax issues.

Personal

Proper estate planning is vital to protecting your hard-earned wealth.  Allow me to minimize your estate tax and maximize wealth transfer.

If you are experiencing trouble with the IRS, I can represent you and work directly with the IRS.  This allows you to enjoy life and your family without the burden of dealing with the IRS.

Business

Business transactions are riddled with tax pitfalls. Let me help you navigate those transactions to minimize your tax exposure.

Negotiation & Mediation

Negotiations and mediations can be emotionally taxing.  Let me take that burden and advocate with you.  Together we will identify your needs, your deal-breakers, your points of concession and develop a plan to find a workable situation for you.

I will be happy to work with family, business, landlord-tenant relationships and others.  Even when you think the situation is outside the law, I am more than willing to help.

I have mediated highly emotional situations, across cultures, within families and among co-workers.  My negotiation has spanned internationally, involving complex aircraft leasing agreements and contracts.

About

I am licensed to practice law in the State of Colorado.  With a Masters in Taxation (LL.M.), I am able to provide comprehensive advice in all matters of taxation.

I have worked with a start-up company, developing technology for GPS tracking on heavy equipment including asset control and theft recovery. Furthermore, I was the CFO for a large federal government contractor providing aerial fire suppression in the airtanker industry.  This experience gives me a unique perspective in business growth and financial control. I also worked as a federal officer for the United States Customs Service in border security and drug interdiction.

My hobbies include flying.  I have been in the aviation sector for more than 20 years.  As a flight instructor and corporate pilot I have had the privilege of having an “office in the sky.”  My Masters in Aeronautical Science gives me thorough understanding of the aviation industry and its particular needs.
