Business Law at Tollefsen Law

Representing Business and Entrepreneurs

Our founder, John J. Tollefsen obtained a degree in Business Administration and started his practice with the goal of helping entrepreneurs build successful businesses. He added to his knowledge and experience through more than 38 years of legal practice and his own entrepreneurial endeavors. Tollefsen Law has worked on many private and public financings in a wide range of industries. By representing hundreds of businesses from formation through their inevitable challenges (like litigation or even bankruptcy), TL has the depth of experience to assist entrepreneurs and growing businesses. TL has assembled a competent team of lawyers and staff who each bring unique business knowledge and skills. TL is  experienced in assisting with business financing including private placements and securities offerings. TL has the knowledge, experience, and expertise to assist in many areas of law and business including transportation law and taxation. Unlike some business law firms, TL has significant first hand business and entrepreneurial experience allowing it to offer practical advice for small business that cannot afford ivory tower solutions.

Answers to tax questions

Transactions

Tollefsen Law has handled complex transactions in securities transactions, oil and gas, commercial real estate, sale of business assets and many other business agreements. We have worked on many international transactions.

Business Organizations

Because of TL's focus of representing entrepreneurs, we suggest the organization of your business be designed for defense. The economy is cyclical and it is likely that your business will face financial stress in the future. We can help you organize business entities that provide maximum protection in a financial downturn.

Business organizations, excluding some trusts, are creatures of state or federal law. For more information: 

Agency, Employment, and Contracts

Most business organizations are entities separate from their owners. They have rights under the federal and state constitutions as "persons." These legal fictitious persons can only act through human agents. Thus the law of principal-agent (law of agency) applies to most business organization transactions. In order for the transaction to be binding on the principal (the organization), the agent must have actual or apparent authority. Competent business lawyers can assist your organization drafting professional contract and agency agreements.

Tollefsen Law represents both employers and employees in labor disputes.
