Kerr Russell’s team of business attorneys is a multidisciplinary group focused on the specific issues and concerns of privately owned businesses.

Our attorneys, many of whom are certified public accountants as well as lawyers, provide advice and representation regarding the full spectrum of matters unique to closely held businesses, and frequently act as general counsel for numerous businesses in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, finance, real estate, retail, service, technology, and transportation.

We advise private businesses owned and/or operated by unrelated partners, families, or a combination of outside and family interests. With each client, we learn the company’s unique culture and dynamics, as well as the owners’ objectives, which allows us to help them plan and execute strategies to protect and grow the business. Our closely held clients include businesses of varying sizes.   

Our attorneys advise closely held businesses on matters including:

  • Choice of appropriate business entity
  • General business planning
  • Succession planning
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Financing
  • Corporate and personal income tax and planning
