Business, Corporate and Tax Law

Timoney Knox’s Business, Corporate and Tax Law Group has the knowledge, insight, perspective and skills required to regularly assist both established and start-up companies with complex corporate and transactional matters. Our clients turn to us knowing they will receive a high level of client service and practical advice based on industry knowledge, economic factors, market opportunities, managed risk, and a comprehensive command of federal, state and local laws and regulations governing our clients’ businesses.

Our diverse client base includes local, regional and national businesses, both large and small, in a wide range of industries. We represent clients from oil and gas to manufacturers, construction companies, retail services, and computer technology. We also regularly provide strategic corporate advice to corporate boards, non-profit organizations and entrepreneurs, as well as banks and other financial institutions in all types of financing transactions.

We routinely help our business clients structure their corporate transactions in a tax-effective manner, including reorganizations and the purchase and sale of businesses and assets. We deliver tax advice from beginning (new corporations, partnerships and joint ventures) to end (business succession and estate planning) and all points in between.

Additionally, due to the depth and breadth of our firm’s legal services, we are able to involve our other practice areas, including labor and employment, real estate and litigation, when needed. Through all stages of your business development, we provide a comprehensive range of integrated, client-focused services to give our clients the most cost-effective and tax-efficient strategies that minimize risks and achieve business objectives.

While we would like to hear from you, you should be aware that any of the information you submit to us via this website will not be treated as confidential or privileged as a lawyer/client communication unless we have previously sent you an engagement letter. You are not a client of the Firm until you receive such an engagement letter. Please click the "OK" button if you understand and accept the forgoing statement and wish to proceed.


The sending of an email to a Timoney Knox lawyer does not create, and the receipt of it does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. This website presents general information about Timoney Knox, LLP which is not intended to be legal advice, nor should you consider it as such. Please be aware that anything you send to anyone at the firm will not be confidential, secret, privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure unless we have formally agreed to represent you in writing and a conflicts check has been successfully completed. Unless we have created an attorney-client relationship in writing, please understand that no information provided in an email that you send to one of our lawyers will prevent Timoney Knox from representing a different client in the same matter. Also, by acknowledging the terms here, you consent to the firm's subsequent use of information that you provide us in the representation of another client. Consequently, please do not send confidential or sensitive information and/or documents to anyone at the Firm until you have been notified that a formal attorney-client relationship has been established.
