Business and Commercial Law

At the law office of J. Trent Lehman our primary objective is to help our business clients plan for success. We leverage our legal knowledge and skills to protecting our client interests and helping them achieve their goals.

Business Formation in Tennessee

We guide clients through all phases of the business cycle, starting with forming the appropriate business entity. This depends on factors such as how the business will be capitalized, the management structure, and issues of owner liability. We prepare the required foundational documents, assist with obtaining necessary licenses, and negotiate and draft related agreements. This includes, partnership agreements, operating agreements and shareholder agreements, among others.

Navigating Complex Business Laws

The laws governing business are based on a variety of rules, statutes, codes and regulations. For this reason, it is crucial to have a trustworthy business law attorney advise you in all your business dealings. Our legal team handles all aspects of business law, including:

  • Business planning
  • Business transactions/contracts negotiations
  • Business transfers and buy/sell agreements
  • Business succession planning
  • Key-man buyouts
  • Corporate resolutions
  • Non-compete and non-disclosure agreements

We also have experience handling business disputes whether through arbitration, mediation or litigation. Although we typically advise clients to reach negotiated settlements, we are fully prepared to litigate any matter in the state and federal courts.

Real Estate Transactions

The Tennessee real estate market is rapidly evolving, offering opportunities for homebuyers, real estate developers and investors alike. Nonetheless, engaging in successful transactions requires having sound legal advice. The law office of J. Trent Lehman is well versed in all aspects of residential and commercial property law. We have a proven track record of protecting our clients interests. 

Residential Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is probably the single largest financial transaction that many individuals will ever undertake. Therefore, it is essential to work with a capable real estate attorney. Our legal team routinely handles all aspects of residential transactions. This includes arranging for home inspections, reviewing and preparing contracts of sale, conducting title searches and representing clients at closing. 

By collaborating with a respected network of real estate professionals, including developers, realtors, title agencies and lenders, we work to ensure all transactions close expediently. We also handle related matters such as landlord/tenant disputes, land use and zoning, and assist with arranging for financing. 

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate transactions are more complicated and are subject to a number of local, state, and federal laws and regulations. At the law office of J. Trent Lehman, we assist clients with the purchase and sale of office buildings, apartment buildings, shopping centers and other commercial properties. We also provide advice and guidance on the related land use and zoning, permitting and government affairs issues. 

We also have experience preparing construction-related documents for stand-alone projects as well as multi-stage and multi-location ventures. Our team routinely works closely with our clients' team of architects, engineers, design consultants, construction managers, general contractors, and project managers. We provide a powerful combination of legal knowledge and business acumen to help buyers and sellers engage in successful transactions. 

Estate Planning

There are many misconceptions surrounding estate planning. Some think it’s only for the wealthy. Others believe they don’t need a will because they are single or don’t have children. At the law office of J. Trent Lehman, we believe that estate planning is everyone. In particular, It is important to at least have a will, a power of attorney, and an advance medical directive.

A well designed estate plan can also help you achieve a number of financial goals. Creating a revocable living trust, for example, allows you to avoid the time and expense associated with probate. There are also a variety of irrevocable trusts than can help to plan for a loved with special needs or to arrange for your long-term care. 

Our attorneys provide comprehensive estate planning services to individual, couples and families. We prepare all the related documents and also advise our business clients on succession planning. In addition, we advise executors regarding probate proceedings and also represent clients who are seeking to be appointed administrator of an estate.
