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

Condo Special Assessment

"I am buying a condominium in Edmonton. The seller has indicated that there is a Special Assessment outstanding on the condominium and they have asked me to assume responsibility for it."

What Would Andrew Recommend?

Before accepting this obligation, you need to understand the extent of the Special Assessment and work this into the purchase price. For example, you may decide to revise your purchase price to take into account the negative financial impact of the Special Assessment. The key is to make this decision before the purchase, not after, and to consult with your lawyer before making any decision. Remember: It is your lawyer’s job to look after the details – this could be a very important detail.
