AREAS OF PRACTICE
BUSINESS CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL LAW
Business law is sorted into two categories: (1) business transactions, and (2) business litigation. Business transactions include business formation, contracts, security agreements and perfection, as well as real estate transactions, and a host of other subcategories of contract. Business litigation is simply the enforcement of those rights as defined by contract or by statute. Proper business formation can significantly lessen the need for business litigation in the future.
The attorneys at Reynolds & Reynolds have experience in both business litigation and transactions. Business litigation often turns on the interpretation of business contracts. It is therefore invaluable to have the same attorneys that drafted the contract, represent the business, or its owners, in litigation involving the contract.
ASSIGNMENT OF ASSETS FOR THE BENEFIT OF CREDITORS
The Assignment of Assets for the Benefit of Creditor’s is the state version of bankruptcy. This is a burgeoning area of law, despite existing for decades. Assignments are a useful tool in a variety of circumstances, most notably for small businesses. Assignment cases are not common and the number of experienced assignment attorneys is low. For the time being, this burgeoning area of law remains a niche area in which select lawyers operate.
ASSET PROTECTION &
A thorough and fully developed estate plan is essential to protecting those assets which have taken a lifetime to earn. Reynolds & Reynolds has experience in complex estate plans regarding high value assets, as well simple wills and trusts.
Few areas of law are as engrained with historical precedent and tradition as estate planning. Historically, technical formalities have undone important executory documents. While the modern trend is beginning to focus more on intent and less on formalities, it is essential that any estate attorney be familiar with these technical rules.
Real estate law encompasses a wide variety of law, including title insurance and escrow transactions, drafting purchase or lease agreements, drafting mortgage or promissory notes and litigating claims thereto. The professionals at Reynolds & Reynolds have experience in every facet of real estate law.
Reynolds & Reynolds represents both debtors and creditors in commercial debt disputes.

Experienced family law attorneys give clients the knowledge to comprehend the seemingly complex and unsure legal system and the confidence to know that they will be treated fairly.
