McCarthy & Akers, PLC represents businesses in various matters such as business formation, governance, contract drafting and negotiation, employment agreements, commercial disputes, and business dissolution. We cultivate relationships with our clients while providing efficient, cost-effective services aimed at helping our clients succeed at their business endeavors.

Our firm can assist with the formation and development of your business regardless of where you are in the business cycle. If you have an existing domestic business in Virginia or West Virginia, or if you have a foreign business (a business outside those states), McCarthy & Akers, PLC can become your business’ registered agent. We will give your existing business the legal advice necessary to further grow and develop. 

If you have not yet established a business, McCarthy & Akers, PLC, will provide the necessary assistance to form your organization and get it on the road to prosperity.  This includes selecting the right type of business structure for your company, such as incorporation (S- and C-Chapter), general partnership, a limited partnership, or a Limited Liability Company (LLC). As your businesses change and develop, we will assist with buy-sell arrangements, succession plans, and dissolutions.

One of the most important services we provide our business clients is litigation avoidance strategies. Regardless of a business’ size or prominence, legal problems affecting its financial status and reputation require practical solutions. At McCarthy & Akers, we view our clients’ legal problems as business problems, and work creatively and quickly to solve them.

In order to best prepare for your first business development meeting with us, feel free to use our Business Planning Worksheet. While not necessary—we will go over everything with you either way, and you’ll have time to gather what’s needed—you can use the checklist to ensure that you get the most time for your money.

We specialize in:

Partnerships are one of the simplest business entities to establish and operate. Although it can subject the business owner to greater risk, we can assist you with the protection necessary to protect your business and your personal interests.

Corporations offer a business owner much more flexibility in operating a business and may offer more protection. We can assist your business in creating the necessary corporate documents and corporate minute books. Some of the documentation that we prepare includes articles of incorporation, bylaws, corporate minutes and shareholder agreements to name a few.

In recent years the Limited Liability Company (LLC) has gained in popularity because of its numerous advantages over the traditional corporation. It combines the benefits of both a corporation and a partnership. The LLC enables the profits and taxes to “pass through” to the individual members while offering a significant amount of flexibility in its management. Additionally, an LLC offers the managers protection from personal liability much like a corporation. With these advantages it is no wonder why the LLC is fast becoming the most popular form of business entity.

Our firm will help you with the formation and development your business while assisting you with federal and state compliance laws. If you are an existing domestic business already incorporated in Virginia or West Virginia, or if you are a foreign corporation (a business outside those states), you must have a registered agent to transact business in these states, a service we provide. We will give you the legal advice necessary to grow and develop your business intelligently.
