We draft agreements of all kinds. We will work with you to make sure you and your business are protected from beginning to end.
A partnership agreement should include details such as the purpose of the partnership, ownership interest, decision-making process, responsibilities and liabilities of each partner, what constitutes a default, notice provisions, dispute resolution procedures, and continuity and succession planning.
In a settlement, both parties agree to a resolution and final outcome of claims. If you are out of court, we can assist in drafting and negotiating a settlement agreement to avoid court altogether. In NYS, most court cases are settled rather than proceeding to trial-- which generally saves time and money. Once a case is commenced, a settlement agreement, also known as a Stipulation of Settlement, is drafted and signed by all parties. When you enter into a Stipulation of Settlement that is filed with the court, you are making a binding legal agreement that must be followed. As your counsel, ELG attorneys will be able to explain and answer any questions about the settlement agreement. You do not have to settle your case if you believe that what you are being asked to do in the agreement is grossly unfair. It is your right to have a trial and we can explain the cost/ benefit scenario of either settlement or proceeding to trial. As it is often said, a "good settlement is when both sides hate it.
Bylaws and resolutions are the initial decisions of your corporation's board of directors and basic "operating rules" of your corporation. An operating agreement is a key document used by LLCs because it outlines the business' financial and functional decisions including rules, regulations and provisions.
At ELG, we can assist you in drafting operating agreements, corporate resolutions, bylaws and other legally binding, operative documents. Whatever you need, we are here to help.
Esagoff Law can help you decide which formation is best for your business needs. There are a lot of factors to consider, mainly involving tax law.

An escrow account provides a secure and impartial way to protect both individuals and entities during a transaction by not releasing the funds until all of the deal's conditions have been met. This can help prevent fraud mismanagement and other problems that can arise.. This is a common scenario during real estate transactions. At ELG, as trusted fiduciaries, we can assist you with escrow arrangements.
