Business Law

If you are starting a new business, purchasing a business, selling property, or need a contract written, Abernethy & Hagerman can assist you with all of your needs. 

Entity Creation/ Governance

Starting a new business can be overwhelming. You will have a hundred headaches and long checklists to overcome. Let Abernethy & Hagerman take some of that stress away by helping you obtain your corporate designation from the Pennsylvania Department of State, obtain your entity’s tax ID number or EIN from the Internal Revenue Service and draft your internal governance documents. This is a guaranteed way to achieve liability protection from any potential creditors from reaching your personal assets in the event something unfortunate happens in the course of business.

Real Property Issues

Whether it’s selling a home or leasing rental property, A&H will work with the client in order to make sure their rights are secure. There can be many pitfalls in selling real estate such as the proration of county and local taxes, the shifting to Pennsylvania Realty Transfer Tax, and certain warranties of title. Even if the documents seem like forms with boilerplate language, there is always a need to make certain you understand the terms of the transaction. Likewise, if you are a landlord looking to rent to a tenant, you should be certain your lease complies with the Pennsylvania Landlord Tenant act of 1951 as amended.

Contracts

Contracts are the lifeblood of any business exchanging goods or services. A&H works with new business or existing business in order to effectuate transactions between buyers and sellers. We also work with business owners to develop templates of documents that can be used in multiple transactions with customers in the future. 

Tax

The saying “no news is good news” is the truest when dealing with the Internal Revenue Service. In the event proceedings are instituted against you by the IRS, you will need an attorney who is licensed in federal tax court, which is a separate jurisdiction than federal district court. A&H can help you handle the requests from the IRS or the litigation associated with a dispute over a tax return.
