The Business Help You Need

Hamblett & Kerrigan, P.A., has been helping businesses and business owners with their formation, organization and dispute-resolution matters for decades. We represent businesses of all types, including high- and low-tech manufacturers, service organizations, higher education institutions and professional organizations.

Our attorneys have extensive experience resolving disputes before state and federal administrative agencies.

Whether you need help with business formation, contract negotiation or employee benefit disputes, our experienced business law and litigation lawyers know how to help you. Contacting an attorney to help with the legal side of running your business can make a massive difference in the results of certain situations. Let us take this off your plate.

We Can Help You With Business Organization And Formation

Running a business is a lot of work and involves a lot of processes you may not want to handle on your own. We can work with you to form limited liability companies, corporations, limited liability partnerships, and other business entities. The type of business entity used for your company’s operations and how it governs the relationship between its owners are critical issues to consider carefully. Our attorneys have the experience to walk you through various formation and organization processes.

As well as helping you with business formation, we can help you create the documents that govern the relationship between the owners, such as shareholder and operating agreements. We can also assist individual business owners in addressing issues with their co-owners, including purchasing and selling ownership interests or disputes between co-owners.

Contracts are essential to the function of most businesses. We can assist you in drafting, reviewing and revising contracts between your business and others, including contracts for services and goods, nondisclosure agreements, asset purchase agreements, licensing agreements and buying and selling agreements.

Your Business Litigation Partners

The business litigation group at Hamblett & Kerrigan, P.A., includes experienced commercial litigation attorneys who will advocate for your interests in state and federal courts in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, as well as before administrative agencies in arbitrations, mediations and other private negotiations.

Our attorneys have represented businesses in courts in a wide variety of commercial disputes and have successfully litigated or resolved matters such as:

  • Contract disputes
  • Shareholder derivative claims
  • Stock option disputes
  • Employee benefit disputes
  • Fraudulent conveyance claims
  • Wrongful discharge
  • Discrimination and harassment claims
  • Claims involving noncompete agreements

Our attorneys have the knowledge, experience and resources to represent businesses in court and before a jury effectively. However, we also recognize the importance of cost-effective, practical resolution of business disputes for our clients. Our attorneys are experienced in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. Clients seek to negotiate reasonable solutions to conflicts before or after initiating litigation.

When litigation is the only or best option, we are adept at moving the case through the judicial system to seek a positive outcome. Although business claims can be complex and involve lots of documentation, our attorneys manage the process effectively and efficiently on behalf of our clients.
