Business Planning

As advisors and counselors to various businesses in North Louisiana, the commercial law attorneys at Blanchard Walker are regularly involved in the formation and operation of partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, and limited liability companies (LLC's). With our thorough understanding and appreciation of our business clients' objectives and priorities, we can effectively design and prepare business and commercial agreements, contracts, and documents that protect our clients.

Among the services we offer are: incorporations and other business entity formations; corporate and other entity governance; shareholder agreements; member agreements; mergers; acquisitions; liquidations; dissolutions; franchising; licensing; purchases and sales of businesses, corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies; contract negotiations and drafting; business financing; management planning; executive compensation plans; employment law; and employee benefit plans.

Our business and commercial attorneys are great believers in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration, as ways to avoid or to quickly resolve disagreements. Quick resolution of disputes helps business owners and their employees return to their regular business activities with minimal interruption, and helps them better preserve their reputations from being sullied through litigation.
