Gilbert Business Lawyer
As a business owner, you need an attorney who gets it. You need someone who understands the unique struggles you face, and has expertise in the laws that affect you. The Gilbert business lawyers at Denton Peterson PC have been in business for many years, so they understand the unique challenges that business owners face, and they have the legal expertise you need to guide you.
Between managing your employees, marketing to customers, and trying to grow your business, you don’t have time to worry about the legal ins and outs such as when certain filings are due or what guidelines you have to have in place. That’s why you need to work with a corporate attorney from our firm. Our team will manage those details for you and give you advice on what actions you need to take to meet your legal obligations and to minimize your liability.
Building the right foundation is essential to your business success. Part of that is choosing the right business structure or entity.
An Arizona business lawyer from our team will help you understand the benefits and disadvantages of the different entity types for your business, including sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company and corporation. There are also variations on some of these entities that may better fit your specific situation.
Your choice of business structure may affect the type and amount of taxes you pay, how much liability you bear as an individual, how much control you are able to exert over the business, the relationship between the business partners and so on. We’ll talk through your goals for your business and help you understand how each entity type aligns with those goals to help you make the decision that best fits your situation.
Part of operating a business involves filing or preparing the right paperwork at the time of the formation of your business or when you provide financial updates about it. The type of filings required for your business depend on your entity type, industry and possibly other criteria.
A corporate attorney from our team can help you understand your obligations and then prepare the paperwork on your behalf, ensuring that it is filed properly and on time. Some of these filings may include:
- Articles of Incorporation
- Annual Reports
- Articles of Dissolution or Termination
- Articles of Amendment
- Statutory Agency Documents
- Certificates of Disclosure
We’ll help with whatever filings your business needs to submit, and we’ll help you understand all the legal issues associated with such filings.

Contracts are at the heart of doing business. Most, if not all transactions your business is involved in should be in writing, from hiring employees to buying inventory. But if the contract is not written properly, you are leaving yourself open to liability and loss. A partner could claim he should receive more profits, a party to a contract that did not work out could refuse to refund your money, or a stock holder could sue you for alleged improper actions taken as a business officer.
Our attorneys draft iron-clad contracts that protect your interests. Some of the contracts we draft include:
- Purchase and sales agreements
- Real estate sales and commercial leases
- Employment contracts
- Non-compete agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
- Franchise and distributor contracts
- Joint venture agreements
- Supply contracts
- Partnership agreements
We can create any contract that you need in the course of the operation of your business, and we will write it to minimize your liability and protect your rights.
