How we can help your business

Mihelich & Kavanaugh, PLC can help your business no matter where it is in its life cycle, from formation to dissolution and everywhere in between. We’re proud to offer a variety of services to meet the needs of a wide range of business clients.

Forming and governing a business

Starting a new business can be an exhilarating but frightening experience. Making the right decisions now can be of paramount importance for the company’s future success — and making the wrong decisions can have expensive consequences. We can start your company on the right foot by helping you:

  • Draft articles of incorporation
  • Establish bylaws
  • Issue board and shareholder resolutions
  • Issue stock
  • Craft incentive plans
  • Set employment procedures
  • Structure board meetings and record minutes
  • Much more


Additionally, we can help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of different legal entities, including:

  • C-corporations, which are taxed separately from their owners
  • S-corporations, which are not taxed separately from their owners
  • Limited liability companies, or LLCs, which combine pass-through taxation with the limited liability protections of a corporation


We look forward to helping you make your dream a reality. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Business dissolution

There are certain legal considerations to dissolving a business that go beyond simply hanging out a “closed” sign in your storefront window. If your business has run its course, we can help you bring it to a legal end by filing a certificate of dissolution that meets your particular needs, and the needs of any co-owners or shareholders.

Business disputes

Disagreements are inevitable in business: between partners, between employers and employees, and between the company and its clients. We can handle such business disputes as:

  • Contract disputes
  • Employment disagreements
  • Partnership conflicts
  • Fraud
  • Collections
  • Breach of warranties
  • Real estate litigation


These are just a few of the general business law services that we’re able to provide our clients. We’re eager to discuss your and your company’s unique needs with you in detail, to better understand how we can help.
