Business Law

A significant portion of the Firm’s practice involves the representation of corporations and other business entities, including limited liability companies and partnerships. The members of the Firm whose practices focus, to a great extent, on business and corporate law are Bob Alderson, Mark Burghart, Dan Crow and Joe Weiler. They are regularly engaged in the selection, formation and operation of business entities, and they represent clients in transactions involving tax, antitrust and bankruptcy issues.

The business law practitioners in the Firm are recognized for their experience in these areas. Bob and Mark are co-authors of Chapter 4 (“Operating Problems”) of the Kansas Bar Association’s Kansas Corporation Law & Practice. Bob previously chaired an ad hoc committee formed by the Kansas Bar Association to study the need for revising the Kansas General Corporation Code, and he also served on a subsequent KBA committee formed to compare the Kansas Code with the Delaware Corporation Law.

A substantial portion of Mark’s practice involves the representation of multi-state corporations and business entities before the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals.

While Joe maintains a general corporate and business law practice, he emphasizes the representation of transportation companies and the creation of contractual arrangements which are available for the operation of transportation companies.

Dan’s business practice generally focuses on issues involved in the management and operation of homeowners associations and other transactions involving the transfer of interests in real estate.
