Jackson Attorneys Serving mid-Michigan Businesses for Over a Century

The business attorneys of Curtis, Curtis & Brelinski, P.C. provide the highest-quality legal services and advice to a broad range of closely-held and family businesses in Jackson and throughout mid-Michigan. Our corporate lawyers know that using the same lawyer's services again and again is the greatest compliment a client can give, and our law firm is proud to have represented many business clients for years, many over 40 years and spanning multiple generations.

We advise corporations and LLCs on all facets of business, from entity selection and formation, governance, taxation, employment law, commercial loan structuring and transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, contracts, purchase order and supply agreements, shareholder disputes, succession planning, commercial litigation, restructuring and out of court workouts, divestitures, and dissolution.

Our corporate attorneys focus on building ongoing relationships with our clients so we can understand their business, which allows us to identify potential risks before they become problems. We strongly believe that businesses receive the most value from legal services when they are proactive instead of reactive. Our early involvement in a business or employment issue can help avoid a dispute from becoming a lawsuit, which exposes the company to both financial liability and negative publicity. Let us focus on the law, so you can focus on what is most important to you ... growing your company.

As you can see from our list of business-related services, this area of law is extensive. Businesses are highly regulated and complex organizations, and you should have experienced and seasoned legal counsel to help you navigate the waters. Our corporate lawyers have over 55 years of collective experience, and we are ready to help you and your company succeed.
