Established Salt Lake City Attorney Skillfully Manages Commercial Law Issues

Comprehensive legal services for corporate clients throughout Utah

Never in history has commerce been more competitive. So, if your company is going to prosper, you must do more than tend to business. You must avoid legal pitfalls and resolve commercial disputes as favorably, quickly, and cost-effectively as possible. At the Law Office of E. Barney Gesas PLLC, I am focused on helping businesses of all sizes manage business, corporate and commercial issues efficiently, so they can achieve their business goals. Drawing on more than 40 years of transactional and litigation experience, I provide reliable advice and determined representation for the full range of your business needs.

Reliable assistance with commercial transactions

The Uniform Commercial Code governs most routine commercial exchanges. But complex business deals require custom contracts that protect your rights with precise specifications and clear contingencies. I negotiate and draft extensive contracts for complex commercial operations. I also assist with other essential aspects of your commercial enterprise, including:

  • Real estate lease, purchase and sale agreements — Because every parcel of real estate is a unique asset, every commercial contract effecting the transfer of property must be a custom contract. I draft agreements that protect your rights as a buyer or seller so you can realize the greatest benefit from your bargain.
  • Purchases and sales of businesses — Like real estate, a business is a unique asset. But business sales are also complex because assessing the value of the company and reaching an agreement on the price can be difficult. I represent buyers and sellers, performing due diligence on the company’s assets and debts, intellectual property holdings, the status of its contracts, overhead, customer goodwill, and tax considerations, so my client has a clear, comprehensive understanding of the deal before committing.
  • Regulatory compliance — I advise companies on state and federal regulations related to their industries and the products and services they trade. I help to keep your company in compliance with rules from various federal agencies including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Department of Energy, and others.

When you retain my services for your commercial transaction, you can expect precise, detailed legal service that inspires confidence.

Cost-effective commercial contract litigation

Even the most careful businesses wind up engaged in commercial and business litigation at some point. I provide highly responsive service for clients embroiled in contract litigation. One especially important issue for commercial enterprises is the protection of trade secrets through the enforcement of noncompete agreements. Too often, a separated employee leaves a company and takes vital intellectual property, such as proprietary business systems, client lists, supplier lists, and product specifications. To protect your company’s future, you must act quickly. I can help you get an injunction, prohibiting the former employee from using your IP and compelling its return. If the theft has already harmed your business, I can help you recover the damages you deserve.
