Considerations When Ending Your Business
Our firm provides a full range of business law advice and services, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts. We can also provide an opinion on the strength of a contract and your termination options.
As a business owner, you may be handed a contract or a waiver, with the expectation that you will sign it on the spot. But signing that document may expose you to needless risks. For example, by signing a 1542 waiver, you are foregoing your right to sue.

Get the Help You Need to Close a California Business
Our services give you trusted and knowledgeable lawyers who will stand next to you when you decide to shut down your business. Our goal is to minimize any potential liability for you, the business owner.
Our San Diego business lawyers will help you make the strategic business decisions to wind up your business, tie up debts and shareholders and employees rights according to the law. A business may dissolve through Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to the business no longer being profitable or desirable.
Formally Close a Business with the Government (Both State and Federal)
As a business owner, you may end your business at any time. However, there is a checklist of steps when ending your business with the government. Without termination with the state and federal governments, a business owner could be held liable for taxes and fees associated with the business.
Dissolving a Partnership
There are many steps in dissolving a partnership other than just dissolving and ceasing business. “Winding up” a partnership involves the process of executing contractual obligations, resolving partnership debts and claims, and the liquidation of assets and property.

I left a voicemail for Tom late Sunday evening and received a phone call first thing the next morning.
Tom was very quick to reply to any questions I had, and if he was caught up in a meeting, he was sure to return my call promptly.
Tom provided sound and logical advice, during a very stressful and uncertain time. At times I asked him to be more aggressive and was often met with the pros and cons of that decision, allowing me to understand the approach and thought process behind his strategy.
Ultimately he provided options for several paths for us to take, worked swiftly, and got us where we needed to be.
He reached out several times to check on my sanity and make sure I was good.
As someone with very high expectations, I would highly recommend his services. He provided expertise that proved to be successful, and also took the time to make sure I was emotionally solid.
Tom assisted with me with a 50% / 50% ownership conflict.
i liked that a lawyer, and not a staff member, called me to get the details and he gave me his opinion of what his initial thoughts are about my case.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Johnny Nitti helped us with our estate plan. He was very meticulous while drafting the plan and spent enough time to explain the details to us. He filed the deed with county recorder and paid for the fees himself. Overall, Johnny did a great job and we definitely plan to work with him in the future for any updates to our EP.
