Serving the Legal Interests of Closely Held CompaniesClosely Held Company Lawyer at Beck & Christian

A closely held company is a private business entity that is owned, operated and controlled by a small group of individuals (shareholders). Unlike publicly traded companies, ownership (stock) in a closely held business is not available to the general public. The vast majority of closely held companies are family businesses.

If you want to form a Closely Held Business, it is vital that you speak to an experienced business lawyer who fully understands the advantages and disadvantages inherent to such a business entity, as well as the best ways to minimize tax liabilities and how to help shareholders establish an effective business succession plan.

Although there are numerous advantages to establishing a closely held company, having a comprehensive shareholder agreement in place is essential in case disputes arise between the shareholders. Beck & Christian handles a wide range of issues for Closely Held Businesses, including:

Drafting, Negotiating & Reviewing Business Formation Contracts

Drafting, Negotiating & Reviewing Shareholder (Buy / Sell) Agreements

Acting as General Counsel on Behalf of the Closely Held Company

Providing Tax Advice to the Business

Defending State & Federal Tax Controversies on behalf of the Business

Establishing Closely Held Business Succession Strategies

Serving the needs of business clients throughout Orange County for more than 35 years, the lawyers at Beck & Christian always make a conscious effort to ensure that our clients’ expectations are met, and go above and beyond to do so.
