Business, Corporate, and Tax Law
Successfully navigating today’s complex business environment

Timoney Knox’s Business, Corporate, and Tax Law Group is proud to serve as a trusted resource for our business clients, and to guide them through the vast array of legal issues presented by today’s complex business environment. 

Our team has the knowledge, skills, and experience required to regularly assist both established and startup 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 rooted in 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: oil and gas, manufacturers, health care, construction, real estate development, professional services, 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, mergers and acquisitions, and the purchase and sale of businesses and assets. We deliver tax advice from beginning (new LLCs, corporations, partnerships, and joint ventures) to end (sales of businesses and 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 complementary practice areas–including labor and employment, estate planning, real estate, and litigation–to serve our business clients when needed. Through all stages of your business development, we provide a comprehensive range of integrated, client-focused services to give you the most cost-effective and tax-efficient strategies that minimize risks and achieve business objectives.


“Timoney Knox has been an amazing partner. They have all the resources available to handle any legal matter and their communication and responsiveness are incredible. It is very comforting to work with a firm that has your best interests in mind. Highly recommend!”

Core Services

Business Transactions

We assist companies with mergers, acquisitions, stock purchase and asset purchase transactions, and joint ventures. Our attorneys are routinely involved with all aspects of a transaction. We take pride in our practical, comprehensive approach–serving our clients by managing legal risks while implementing creative solutions to get deals done.

Business Formation

We work with startups and entrepreneurs to organize and incorporate LLCs, corporations, and partnerships, and prepare the necessary governing documents to provide for management of the business, such as operating agreements and shareholders agreements. Our attorneys counsel both new and established businesses with structuring their organizations to maximize liability protection and tax efficiency.

Business Succession Planning

We plan for transition of business ownership to partners, family members, or trusted employees, assuring continuity for businesses and peace of mind for families at retirement, or upon an unexpected event such as death or disability. We counsel family businesses on how to prudently and tax-efficiently transition their legacies and wealth to future generations.

Business Counseling and Commercial Contracts

We serve as advisors on a variety of legal issues including taxation, corporate governance, employment law, non-compete covenants and collections as well as managing disputes with third parties and among business owners. We regularly prepare and negotiate contracts for our business clients, including leases, employment agreements, franchise agreements and contracts with vendors, suppliers and manufacturers.

Banking Law and Business Financing

We advise banks and financial institutions on complex loans and debt collections, including foreclosures. We assist businesses with navigating legal aspects of borrowing from banks and private party lenders, reviewing loan documents and security arrangements.
