The Hyland Law Firm LLC provides comprehensive legal representation to businesses in business transactions, commercial property tax valuation appeals, and litigation matters throughout the greater Kansas City Metro area. We also represent individuals in personal injury, wrongful death and partner disputes or what we call "Business Divorces". Our business representation is tailored to the unique needs and goals of our clients.
Overland Park business attorney Charles J. Hyland understands that the most effective approach to preventing costly and disruptive litigation is to avoid such disputes through sound legal counseling, skilled negotiation of contentious issues, and artful drafting of unambiguous business contracts and documents. Mr. Hyland’s extensive litigation experience allows him to more effectively draft business contracts and other documents to anticipate ambiguities that lead to future disagreement and litigation.
Business Law: Sound Legal Counseling, Effective Legal Documents & Tenacious Litigation
Mr. Hyland recognizes that most legal issues are also financial issues that can interfere with the smooth operation or profitability of a business. When counseling clients on business formation issues and preparing contracts or business formation documents, his goal is to provide the foundation for a minimum of disputes and regulatory compliance issues. The best legal advice is virtually invisible because it is based on anticipating and preventing legal roadblocks before they happen. Mr. Hyland provides effective legal representation of your business by anticipating regulatory compliance, personal liability and contract disputes before they arise and providing effective solutions based on strategic planning.
Our Overland Park business law firm provides legal representation in both business transactions and litigation in a broad range of issues, including but not limited to the following:
- Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
- Mergers and Acquisitions
- Buying and Selling Businesses
- Partner Disputes
- Business Dissolution Issues
- Contract Preparation and Disputes
- Non-Compete Agreements and Disputes
At the Hyland Law Firm LLC, we recognize that when former employees or partners compete directly with you by using your trade secrets like client lists, manufacturing processes or other valuable intellectual property, it can seriously compromise your business. Similarly, contentious partnership disputes and unpaid accounts receivable can also cripple your business so Mr. Hyland works diligently to provide effective and economical solutions, effective negotiation, and tenacious litigation of the issues confronting your business.
Providing Business-Like Solutions to Business Divorce Issues
While there is always a risk of conflict because of the acrimonious feelings that frequently accompany the breakup of a business, Mr. Hyland attempts to navigate around these emotional roadblocks to reach business-like solutions to important issues. These challenges are often compounded by real world concerns regarding the impact of the divorce change of the business ownership and structure on the earning capacities of the partners. We look forward to working with you on these issues.
Mr. Hyland often will rely on alternate dispute resolution processes like mediation to reach a mutually acceptable resolution to your dispute. There are significant advantages to negotiating the dissolution of a business partnership and not let a judge who knows nothing about your business make all the decisions. Constructive negotiation and resolution reduces the stress on you and can reduce the cost of the process leaving more financial resources for you and your business. Issues that arise in Business Divorces include:
Business valuation and distribution
Equitable distribution of equity in real property and retirement plans
Hidden, wasted and diverted assets
Division of hard to value assets (stock options, antiques, heirlooms)
- Customer relationships
- Continuity of the revenue stream
- Protection of company trade secrets and assets
Whether you are embroiled in a potential dissolution with your business partner or need help in court, Mr. Hyland provides diligent discovery, thorough knowledge of the law, well-crafted legal documents, effective negotiation, and proven advocacy at the negotiating table and in the courtroom. Mr. Hyland represents both businesses and individuals in Overland Park and the surrounding areas.
