Business Law

Even the most talented entrepreneur can’t beat the competition without understanding the rules and regulations surrounding small businesses in the State of Minnesota.  Unfortunately, there are only so many hours in the day. The best way to ensure that you are protected legally and that your business will thrive regardless of any legal challenges that you might face, is to enlist the aid of an experienced Minnesota business law attorney. Since 1989, Kevin K. Shoeberg has been helping small business owners demystify the legal aspects of business formation, transactions, and litigation.   

Some of the ways that we can help you to achieve your dreams of a successful business include:

Business Formations & Transactions:

The early steps of a business go far beyond a good idea.  It is important to make sure that you are starting on the right foot legally as well.  Individuals who are starting a new business for the first time may feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options confronting them.  We can help with the formation of a Limited Liability Company (LLC), general and limited partnerships, sole proprietorship, S-Corp, C-Corp, or other corporate entities.  By sitting down and discussing your business strategy, we can determine the best structure to achieve your financial goals and protect you as needed.  We will also assist you in the drafting of contracts and agreements, acquisitions and sales of business entities, and business succession plans so that the future of your company is protected.

Business Disputes & Litigation:

A common thread to the health of any small business is a legal dispute or litigation.  By working with an experienced small business attorney, you can weather these challenges and keep your business alive and growing.  Business litigation covers a wide range of disputes from breach of contract and other contract disputes, to corporate and partnership disputes.  This can include business fraud, unfair competition matters, intellectual property cases, securities litigation, and others.  If your company is facing any form of dispute, either internally or from and outside entity, contact us right away.  We understand that time is money and we seek to find affordable and timely solutions so that you can continue doing business.

Municipal Law:

Kevin K. Shoeberg has been practicing municipal law for more than 30 years. Municipal law is usually concerned with civil matters that are under the jurisdiction of local governing authorities.  These include the bylaws and ordinances that are necessary for a municipality to function effectively and peaceably and can include such issues as zoning issues, personal issues, permitting and licensing for development, subdivisions, city councils, and a number of other matters.  We can provide you with practical answers to complicated questions about local government and help you solve civil problems quickly and affordable.
