Governance & Structure

Especially in today’s increasingly regulated and litigious environment, appropriate processes in corporate decision-making go a long way towards minimizing risk. BALL PLLC regularly represents corporations in connection with corporate governance and related matters; we have also advised special committees of boards of directors.

How you organize your company matters. BALL PLLC implements corporate structures for both asset protection and tax minimization strategies.

BALL PLLC also assists businesses in performing internal due diligence in order to prepare companies for sale by reducing risk and optimizing company structures for prospective purchasers. We also guide future sellers in preparing their corporate data room information for review by future purchasers.
