Business and Corporate Transactions

Todd & Associates represents clients throughout California with regard to general business legal advice, preparing agreements, corporate formation and start-up, and the full spectrum of legal counsel to family owned and other private companies.  Family owned and private companies have long been an important part of our practice, and over the years we have cultivated the experience necessary to help these businesses align and balance the sometimes competing objectives of effective corporate governance, financial success, family harmony and personal development.

Todd & Associates believes that it is critical to understand and address the full range of needs and goals of the family owned and private companies we represent. Our attorneys work with family members and management to design and achieve their goals by providing legal services and assisting in locating and engaging other advisers who can contribute to the success of the business. Many of the legal services we offer, including critically important tax and estate planning services, are specially tailored to family owned and other closely held businesses. Our attorneys serve in the role of an experienced and trusted adviser, guiding clients through the often complex and unique challenges that they confront.
