Trusted Franklin Business Law and Real Estate Attorneys

Ensuring smooth business operations in Franklin, Brentwood and Columbia

Every business, no matter what size or type, invariably runs into situations that require legal counsel. While some are fundamental, like business formation or contract reviews, others can be controversial, like contract disputes and collections.

The Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates, with locations in Franklin, Brentwood and Columbia, Tennessee, provides business legal advice to businesses throughout Middle Tennessee. We handle matters ranging from the simple to the complex.

Choosing the right business formation plan

If you want to start up a new business, we can help you decide which of several business structures is right for you and your enterprise. These include:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • General partnership
  • Limited partnership
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Franchise
  • Joint venture
  • Closely-held corporation
  • Corporation

Each has advantages and disadvantages, depending on your goals, and each has varying degrees of implications on personal liability and taxation. With the right legal counsel by your side, you can get your business up and running smoothly and effectively.

Skilled contract attorneys to protect your business from the start

Contracts are binding documents between two or more parties. They serve as the basis for almost every business relationship, so getting it right from the start is imperative. Our attorneys offer seasoned, practical guidance to business clients in need of:

  • Contract preparation
  • Contract review
  • Contract dispute resolution
  • Contract litigation

We work hard to ensure your rights are protected and if a breach occurs, we can represent your interests to resolve it out of court, or if need be, through litigation.

What to do if when you need to collect on business debts

Few words inspire more fear (or contempt) than “dent collection.” But as a business owner, you deserve to be paid the fair amount for the work that you do. When you need to collect on an unsecured debt, we can help you move the process along more smoothly, effectively and efficiently. If payment is still denied to you, our skilled Columbia business litigation attorneys are prepared to represent your best interests in court.

Protecting the rights of property owners in Tennessee

Commercial real estate owners and managers face a number of hurdles unique to them. Our Franklin real estate attorneys provide comprehensive counsel in all transactions, and have the experience and resources to protect your interests in court. We have earned a solid reputation for our work in the areas of:

  • Boundary disputes. Property owners in Middle Tennessee may find themselves embroiled in a boundary dispute when they seek to make building improvements. Emotions can flare up and the dispute can erupt into an all-out war. You can prevent this by consulting the Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of state law, local ordinances, and applicable covenants and zoning restrictions. Our meticulous approach helps you establish the facts and resolve the dispute successfully.
  • Condemnation, or eminent domain, is the power of federal, state, and local government to take private property for a public purpose. In some cases, the government has delegated the power to public utilities. When you are notified of the government’s intention, contact an attorney skilled in handling condemnation cases. We work hard to ensure you receive the compensation you are due for your property to the fullest amount.
