AMGJ Law’s attorneys are experienced in business and commercial law, providing essential guidance for small and large businesses and local governments across New Mexico. When we counsel your company, we deliver value for our services by helping you avoid litigation and derive the most significant benefit possible from your business endeavors. Our insight removes impediments to your success by alerting you to the potential implications of a course of action.
We offer a wide array of services targeted to the business client faced with a critical transaction or dispute or who merely needs some sound legal advice. Services we most often provide include:
We provide guidance for choice of entity decisions, filings with the New Mexico Secretary of State, tax planning, ownership agreements, capitalization, loans and lines of credit, company bylaws, company handbooks, real estate, land use, and permitting, regulatory compliance and any other matters you need to get your enterprise up and running.
Contract review and development
We negotiate terms and draft documents that protect your rights in any business or commercial exchange. We review your existing contracts to identify risks, so you can take prudent steps to implement contingencies or revise these agreements. Our detailed, practical knowledge of construction law enables us to represent landowners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, material suppliers, and sureties on a full range of contract issues.
Implementing a strategic plan
We work closely with your company's owner or development officer to hone your strategic plan. Our firm assists with due diligence on mergers and acquisitions to identify areas of legal concern that could affect the asset's value, applying legal and industry-specific knowledge to acquisitions. We are adept at facilitating franchise agreements to help companies proliferate with minimal capital expenditure. If your plan calls for restructuring or downsizing, we provide step-by-step guidance to help you maximize the benefits and comply with applicable laws.
Buying or selling a business
If you are an entrepreneur who has built a business and wants to sell, our business attorneys can help you position the sale to derive the greatest value possible. Often with small, closely-held businesses, we assist in sales from owners to family members or key employees. We advise on business succession plans that help the company retain customer loyalty and brand value. We also represent buyers in negotiations as well as mergers and acquisitions.
Disputes and litigation
While having the backing of a solid and aggressive litigation team is a necessity in any dispute, we also recognize the costs and delays inherent in the litigation process. We help place litigation in its proper perspective for our clients by assisting them in identifying, assessing, and avoiding litigation risks in light of the client’s objectives while providing practical and diligent representation throughout all phases of litigation when it is unavoidable. Our skills and experience in our specific practice areas are brought to bear in the civil and commercial litigation process, providing our clients with a litigation team that is not only potent but also understands the underlying subject matter. We are also well-versed in alternative dispute resolution methods, including negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
