Throughout the Triangle area, my firm, North Raleigh Law is a trusted partner to small and large operations. My name is Robert L. Morton. In addition to being an attorney with more than two decades of experience, I am a small business owner and entrepreneur who realizes how legal issues can affect the overall well-being of your business. Whether you seek assistance with a standalone concern or you are looking to engage the firm in an outside general counsel role, I will provide detailed, cost-efficient representation for a wide range of challenges, including contract, litigation and property matters.
Experienced Advocate Assisting With Business Formation, Contracts And Shareholder Disputes
As a business owner or manager, you are likely to face crucial decisions without warning. Whatever your particular challenge entails, you can rely on me for effective assistance with:
- Business formation and advice — My firm outlines the relative merits of corporations, partnerships and LLCs so that startups can choose the entity that best fits their needs. I also counsel clients on tax classifications, bylaws and the establishment of policies that promote sound growth.
- Contract drafting and development — By working closely with businesses, I help to create and negotiate contracts that include favorable terms and anticipate potential contingencies.
- Financial investment counseling — Before making a significant company investment, it’s important to analyze the potential legal and financial consequences thoroughly. My firm performs detailed reviews of proposed projects and transactions so you can minimize the possibility of unfortunate surprises.
- Shareholder and partner disputes — Once a serious disagreement breaks out between partners or fellow shareholders, a business might suffer significant, or even fatal, damage. Drawing on my legal and practical knowledge of these situations, I advocate for my clients vigorously without losing track of the company’s overall health.
While strong legal guidance is invaluable, I understand the financial pressures that businesses face. That is why I maintain cost-effective rates and constantly look for ways to reduce the burden on clients.
Work With A Proven Litigator Who Takes On Various Commercial And Civil Litigation Cases
I am an accomplished business litigation advocate who represents clients in Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Vance and Franklin counties. No matter the specific claim, dispute resolution through arbitration or mediation may be a preferred, cost-effective first step in resolving the conflict. However, if litigation becomes necessary, my technical knowledge and trial experience will enhance your chances of success in court, whether you are a plaintiff or defendant.
