CONNECTICUT BUSINESS LAWYERS
Business gets more challenging every day. In addition to stiffer competition, companies face growing government regulation and more frequent litigation. Business men and women need experienced counsel to help them comply with the law and avoid disagreements. The business lawyers at Chipman Mazzucco have the skill and experience to counsel clients to meet those objectives.
We embrace all aspects of business. We help entrepreneurs to analyze tax issues, form entities, secure trademarks, and obtain financing. We prepare agreements among business owners to define their rights and obligations in terms of equity contributions, management, and buy-out in case of death, disability, and retirement. We help companies put contracts into place with vendors, distributors, and customers. We handle software-as-a-service agreements, licensing agreements, and the terms and conditions for on-line retailers, not to mention leases for brick-and-mortar facilities.
As businesses grow, we also counsel them on employment contracts with noncompete, nondisclosure, and other important provisions. If an employee does not work out, we also prepare employee separation agreements to bring finality to the termination.
As clients purchase and sell businesses, we work closely with their accounting and financial advisors to guide them through the transaction.
Clients call on us for succession planning, especially in family situations. In conjunction with our estate planning team, our business lawyers devise structures to enable businesses to pass to younger generations and to weather the passing of a founder.
We have experience with a diverse range of businesses and industries, such as:
- Advertising agencies
- Banking and lending
- Commercial financial services
- Family businesses
- Fork lift sales
- Investment management
- Manufacturers of everything from electronic components and medical devices to kitchen cabinets and food products
- Medical and other professional practices
- Metal fabricating
- Natural resources
- On-line retailing

We respond promptly, work efficiently, and keep clients informed. As a result, we have served many of our business clients for multiple generations. Chipman Mazzucco is committed to building those relationships, one client and one matter at a time.
