Health Care, And Small-Business Transactions And Governance

Whether you are a solo practitioner, small medical practice with three or four practitioners or a large established practice, the Shackelford Law Office, PLLC has the experience necessary to protect your interests and help you achieve your goals.

I am attorney Tricia Shackelford. I have been an attorney advising healthcare organizations, professionals and small-business owners for over 20 years. From my law office in Lexington, I represent clients throughout Kentucky.

The following are examples of the corporate legal services that I provide:

  • Formation of Medical Practices and Not-For-Profit Provider Entities
  • Formation of Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, Limited Partnerships and Professional Associations
  • Buy-Sell, Partnership and Employment Agreements
  • Stockholder Agreements, Employment Contracts, and Service Agreements
  • Securities Laws
  • Succession Planning
  • Corporate Governance Dispute Resolution, Arbitration, and Litigation
  • Purchase and Sale of Businesses
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Joint Ventures and Dissolutions
  • Leases, and Real Estate Acquisitions and Sales
  • Private Payer Health Care Administration and Reimbursements

Due to the wide range of services I provide, I often serve as general legal counsel for businesses that are too small to hire in-house counsel.

Starting A New Business Enterprise

Many small-business owners try to do things on their own, cutting and pasting contract language from the Internet and drafting their own agreements to save money. Unfortunately, if you make a mistake while setting up your business venture, the cost of undoing these mistakes later can be very high. It's far less expensive to hire a lawyer to avoid a problem than to undo it later.

The starting up of your business is the honeymoon phase when everyone is in a good place. It's better to draft your partnership agreements now when everyone is on good terms.

Protecting Your Interests When Acquiring A Business

Companies considering an acquisition or merger must carefully consider the ramifications of potential regulatory violations on transaction valuations and deal execution. Undiscovered illegal conduct may create liability for successors, putting them at risk of prosecution and damaged reputations. I work with clients engaged in all manners of transactions evaluating the potential risks and providing early strategic guidance to help avoid later problems and issues.
