Business
Whiting & Jardine handles business litigation, transactional work, and compliance issues for its clients. The attorneys at Whiting & Jardine have assisted many of the largest companies in the world but are equally proud of helping local businesses.
Advice
The attorneys at Whiting & Jardine assist clients who want to plan for the success of their business. Whether you are starting a new venture, designing a conglomerate business structure, need help with corporate governance issues, or just want advice on safe practices for running the business you already own, our attorneys have the expertise necessary to advise you on approaches that will safeguard your business for years to come.

Disputes
Business disputes are a major focus of the attorneys at Whiting & Jardine. These disputes often involve breach of contract issues, a failure to follow government regulations, or bad faith in negotiations or business practices. Regardless of the issue, our attorneys can help you get a resolution that is optimal under the circumstances.

Formation
The choice of which business entity to form is a critical issue for every business. While business owners often know an exceptional amount about their companies, they sometimes struggle to determine which type of entity is best for their business venture, be it a Corporation, Limited Liability Company, or a simple DBA. Our attorneys are skilled at evaluating the needs of businesses and prescribing the best entity choice to meet its needs.

Freeze-outs
Freeze-outs (the improper ousting of a partner or member of a company) are one of the most contentious types of business dispute. Often, these disputes are difficult for clients because they have invested significant amounts of money and/or years of their lives and have no way of recouping their investment once they are “kicked out” of the company. Our attorneys have experience dealing with freeze-outs and can help you get the value out of your investment.

Contracts
Contracts amount to private laws that govern the relationship of the parties to a transaction. Disputes over a contract often involve a breach by one or more parties. Understanding when a breach has occurred can be the key to succeeding in any dispute. This is why the attorneys of Whiting & Jardine not only assist clients in resolving contractual disputes; they draft contracts for their clients that help those clients avoid disputes in the first place. Our attorneys are also available to review existing contracts should parties need clarification of their rights.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

2. A good lawyer does not cost money. He saves money.
3. Building on the first two philosophies, always provide a level of service, that our clients could not have been better served by going anywhere else.
