Business Services

For over 40 years, Henneke, Fraim & Dawes, P.C. has offered its business clients dependable legal counsel and transactional support. Every business, whether a sole proprietorship or a multinational corporation, has continuing legal needs. Our firm is knowledgeable about the complex laws and regulations that affect the formation and operation of businesses.

Support from formation to dissolution

We assist our clients from the very beginning of their ventures, by helping them select and form the business entity that best suits their needs. We offer ongoing assistance and advice on the myriad of legal matters that may affect the operation of a business, including commercial, tax, employment, real estate, licensing, and regulatory matters. We regularly assist our clients with tax strategizing, mergers and acquisitions, and stock and asset sales and purchases.  We are also available to review, negotiate, and draft contracts that affect every facet of a business. 

Litigation support

We understand that, for most businesses, some  legal disputes are unavoidable. We stand ready to protect our business clients’ interests in Michigan’s new Business Courts, as well as in state and federal courts, tribunals, and in arbitration. 

Business litigation is a specialty that requires both a breadth of knowledge regarding business law as well as experience in litigation procedure. Our attorneys have this knowledge and skill, which make us uniquely qualified to handle all types of business litigation.  Our dedication to protecting our clients has earned us decades-long relationships with them.

Transaction support

Ownership of businesses can and usually does change.  We have substantial experience in handling mergers, acquisitions, and sales of businesses and ownership interests.  This includes both stock and asset sales and purchases.  We regularly assist clients with planning for succession of ownership, whether it be to family members, or even to employees.  Our education, training, and experience in contract, real estate, and tax matters results in better representation for our clients’ business transactions.

We take pride in having assisted many Michigan businesses to develop and grow. We invite your business to become one of them.
