Founded on the principles of quality representation and personal service, Equity Legal is dedicated to helping the real estate and business needs of its clients.
There's an old saying that says, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." And rightfully so when it comes to your equity. Whether as an investor, developer, homeowner, or business owner, you know just how much time and hard work is spent developing and growing your assets. And what we all realize as creators of our wealth is that obtaining and building equity in our assets is not an easy task. But it is even more difficult to keep this equity. As investors, real estate brokers, attorneys, and business owners, we have chosen equity to be the focus of our service to you. Equity Legal Protects You At Every Step Of Your Transaction Before we were attorneys, we were investors. And before we were investors we were business owners. In fact, in our own initial deals when were starting out, we had to hire many professionals for every transaction. At times, it became a very difficult task to run a business, while having to consult with several professionals to make sure our deal was set up right so that we could eventually build equity that could also be appropriately protected and maintained. A recurring theme that our litigation clients faced were the many pitfalls in failing to adequately structure their real estate and business transactions at the early stages. Only in hindsight, after being forced to resort to costly and lengthy litigation did our clients recognize the importance of taking all available steps to shield their equity at the onset. It was during these times early on as investors, and again through the experiences of our clients, that the idea of Equity Legal was born. Our Unique Skillset Becomes Your Secret Weapon Whether you are selling a business, structuring a complex development project, buying an investment property, or trying to protect your equity from a lawsuit, all of these transactions require wise decisions. Usually, you have to manage these decisions by using several professionals at the same time, however, we find it much more beneficial and powerful to combine all of these skill sets under one roof. Not only can you set up your company so you are protected, but you can ask those complex legal questions in parallel with your project and at a much earlier stage. This speeds up decision making, and ultimately ensures you are building and protecting your equity for the future. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
