Business Law

Mastin Bergstrom, LLC regularly provides advice and counsel and offers a full range of the legal services essential to the success of medical professionals and all other types of businesses, including some that are usually only available from a large high-priced law firm or from a separate and unaffiliated accounting firm.

The emphasis of our business law practice is to advice, counsel, and support healthcare professionals and all other types of business owners to get properly established, operate, thrive and prosper, and then transition out of the business when the time comes.

Our business lawyers are experienced in all stages of business development, from entity selection and formation through routine as well as extraordinary negotiated transactions, including such as: commercial or private capital financing and sales, mergers or other means of business succession. They also regularly work with our clients to add value to their business through efficient tax minimization strategies, planning, and compliance with ever-changing tax requirements.

Interrelating with the firm’s other resources, we bring our business clients the experience and knowledge needed for successful contract negotiating and drafting, financing transactions, employment matters, intellectual property concerns, real estate transactions, and taxation.
