Business and Commercial Law

Business Law OverviewThe most successful entrepreneurs are risk-takers, yet they also are smart enough to recognize the importance of putting the right plans in place and creating proper legal safety nets. At the Law Offices of James W. Talbot, PLLC, in Seattle, Washington, we have helped businesses for more than 20 years navigate complexities encountered at all stages of a company's life cycle, from formation and organic growth to acquisitions, mergers and sales.

We assist our clients with the full range of business-critical tasks, including:

  • Business formation — Determining what type of entity makes the most sense for your business as well as franchising needs
  • Commercial litigation — Resolving disputes, including breaches of contract, with business partners, suppliers, vendors or customers efficiently and cost-effectively
  • Business contracts — Developing and reviewing operating agreements, employee agreements, partnership or shareholder agreements, buy-sell agreements and more
  • Life sciences law — Helping clinical research organizations, pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, physicians and clinics develop beneficial relationships with business partners
  • Construction law — Representing homeowners and contractors in disputes regarding insurance claims, mechanic's liens, defective work, warranty claims, architect claims, bonding claims and more

Attorney Talbot also provides the full range of estate planning services, which is a natural outgrowth of his business law practice because of the need for small-business owners to put comprehensive family and business succession plans in place.
