“Court is seldom a good business strategy.”
– Jim Joyce, Joyce & Bary Law

The business team at Joyce & Bary Law is able to deliver big-firm service and expertise without big-firm (or big-city) overhead. Led by attorney Jim Joyce, we are enthusiastic about helping small-business buyers and sellers and can help them understand the moving parts on both sides of a transaction.

We handle all types of business transactions and agreements, including:

  • LLC formations and operating agreements
  • Corporate asset purchases and sales
  • Stock sales and purchases
  • Negotiating and drafting business contracts, commercial real estate leases
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Joint ventures
  • Business divisions and buyouts
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Non-competition agreements
  • Non-solicitation agreements
  • Employment agreements
  • License agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Member control agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Management agreements

Buy/sell transactions often get off course. A good business broker is someone who can bring all the parties back together, remind them of their original goals and get the transaction back on track.
