Contract law, transactions, litigation, arbitration-whatever your small business need, I can help. I am Atlanta contract lawyer James G. Killough. I have been providing business law services to business owners in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area for more than 35 years. Contact my law office to schedule a free consultation to learn more about how I can help you start or grow your business.

Corporate Formation and Organization

Starting your business, growing your business, passing your business along to the next generation-each of these stages in the life of a company can be accomplished more easily with proper legal guidance.

  • Legal counsel and document negotiation or preparation when you form your new business venture as a sole proprietorship, joint venture, partnership or limited liability partnership, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC)
  • Legal advice on the tax consequences and risk of liability of each business entity
  • Issuing stock or drafting stock purchase paperwork
  • Reorganizing a business
  • Business succession planning to properly transfer assets and control of a business

Business and Commercial Transactions

In contract law, it is all too true that you can spend a dime to get it done right-or spend a dollar to go to court to figure out what you did wrong. A well-drafted business contract will save you time, money, and stress. As your Atlanta contract lawyer, I can provide contract negotiation, drafting, and review services for a variety of routine business transactions:

  • Employment contracts, sales staff contracts, and independent contractor agreements
  • Vendor contracts and customer contracts
  • Manufacturing contracts
  • Commercial real estate leases
  • Equipment leases
  • Purchase and sale agreements for business properties

Business Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Like my clients, I focus on practical solutions to business disputes that limit their risk and their costs. If a problem can be resolved more quickly and cost-effectively with mediation or arbitration, I help my clients use those mechanisms to get an acceptable result to their business dispute. I have served as a business dispute resolution arbitrator for over 25 years, and I am arbitrator for NASD Dispute Resolution, an organization affiliated with the NASD, the primary private-sector regulator of the securities industry and operator of NASDAQ.

If your company's best interests would be protected in court, I provide skilled, knowledgeable and aggressive representation in the courtroom for any type of commercial litigation, including:

  • Trademark and copyright suits
  • Unfair business practices and unfair competition cases
  • Breach of employment covenants and non-compete agreements
