Your business is your livelihood and managing your business is your priority. You invest significant time, energy, and assets making your business successful. Legal issues interfere with your achievement of the goals you have set and take your attention away from effective management.
Legal issues such as business formation, contracts, and disputes can be complex and confusing. Let Newnam Land handle the legal issues that affect your business, so you can focus on making your business thrive.
In addition to years of representing businesses, and their boards, the lawyers of Newnam Land have additional business experience. Robert Land holds a Master of Business Administration and real estate license, and Dixie Newnam studied business administration, with a focus in accounting, as part of her undergraduate degree.

Newnam Land’s attorneys have many years of experience in business law and enjoy working with business owners to address their legal needs. Some of the areas that we can help you with include:
It can be tempting, especially when you are starting out or funds are tight, to attempt to handle business issues on your own. Ultimately, this can cost you much more in the end and may jeopardize your business.
On-line forms are not tailored for your situation and contain words of art that may negatively impact you. Many times, several types of documents are needed to accomplish your goals, but without legal advice, you may not use all the necessary documents or all of the language you need to protect your interests.
Further, there are statutory considerations for many of the decisions faced by a business that are not common knowledge. Simply put, you do not know what you do not know.
We encourage to you contact our office to set up an appointment if you have a legal issue affecting your business so we can help you manage legal risks to your livelihood before they grow into larger problems.
Boards of businesses and non-profits face the additional issue of proper governance. Understanding and following the company’s governing documents, such as by-laws and resolutions, is of the utmost importance.
Often times the governing documents are outdated or not drafted to reflect the best practices for managing that particular entity. Further, many board members aren’t given access to this information or don’t read or understand the information.
The attorneys at Newnam Land have over a decade of experience representing boards and understand the special challenges faced by board members.
From assistance at meetings, to educational workshops, to advice on specific issues, Newnam Land can help your board meet the demands of leading an organization.
