Why every business needs the help and guidance of a commercial law lawyer

Home // Business Law

Whether you are starting a business or have an established business, it’s vital that you are aware of and comply with the laws that apply to your business.

Any business will run more efficiently and smoothly if the management team receives the legal advice required to be in full compliance with the laws and regulations that govern that business sector.

Don’t rely on a business associate or friend for guidance. Only an experienced business or commercial law lawyer has the expertise and training required to complete the legal processes that keep a business running smoothly and efficiently:

  • Asset sales agreements
  • Buying or selling a business
  • Corporate annual returns
  • Corporate restructuring or reorganization.
  • Dividends
  • Incorporations
  • Partnerships
  • Share sales agreements
  • Unanimous shareholder agreements

"Timely legal counsel can make a huge difference in the success of a business by, for example, reducing liability or collections,” explains Edmonton lawyer Andrew Geisterfer.

The fees are less than what you imagine and by choosing Masuch Albert LLP you have the cost certainty that comes with knowing that there are flat fees for most services. "There is no guessing or wondering about the final bill. That just creates stress and that is the last thing we want to do.”

Legal Scenario

Leaking basement

"I moved into my new home in early January and at that time there appeared to be no issues with my basement. However, when the usual spring thaw came in April I noticed that my basement was leaking. What should I do?"

What Would Andrew Recommend?

This scenario highlights the importance of having a property inspection done before you sign a deal. A property inspector is trained to see thing you don’t see. For example, in the winter, when everything is frozen, you are not going to see any water accumulation in your basement and you may therefore assume it is dry. A trained and experience home inspector will look for stains on a wall or other indicators that there was a leak during the summer months. It’s even better if you also have the sellers expressly warrant that the property has never been subject to flooding and they are not aware of any flooding issues with the home. That way you have a legal recourse if it turns out that they were not being honest.
