Business Formation

    Holmes PLLC’s business cases and clients have developed a transactional practice involving entity formation, capital raising in the private equity market, trust administration, deeds and conveyancing, bank and equity financing, mineral lease negotiation, contract drafting and negotiation, and regulatory compliance. The transactional practice attends to the Firm’s longstanding client base, as well as to entrepreneurial and incipient businesses.

    The Firm's transactional practice can provide alternative solutions to wasteful or uneconomical litigation – which the firm especially strives to avoid. The Firm works with its clients’ in-house attorneys or lawyers and staff to meet the clients’ transactional needs. Also, the Firm associates with transactional law boutiques when and as necessary, depending upon the size and complexity of the transactional need.

    Among the instruments that the Firm uses for its transactional practice are the following:

  • Joint venture agreements
  • Participation agreements
  • Joint operating agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Limited partnership agreements
  • Limited liability company agreements
  • Private placement memoranda
