TRANSACTIONS & CONTRACTS
Complementing our litigation work in the courtroom, BKC helps clients with corporate, personal, and real estate transactions.
Much of the law happens outside the courtroom. A contract is completed and filed away. You hope to never need it, but for those times when you do need it, it better be airtight. Investing in setting up contracts & transactions properly on the front end can help prevent costly headaches and frustration that arise in real estate, business, and estate disputes later down the road.
BKC provides general corporate counsel for its clients that do not have a full-time lawyer in house, or clients who have in-house lawyers but need one with a particular skill set that BKC possesses.
Beyond the forms themselves, the structure you select for your business can have far reaching implications. BKC's clients benefit from having a knowledgeable, trusted advisers help them through the legal process of forming a business entity that best suits their needs.
Contracts are exchanged and signed countless times a day. BKC assists its clients with their contracts so that they help accomplish their business goals while, at the same time, minimizing liability and risk exposure.
REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
BKC has helped seamlessly navigate real estate transactions covering home & rental income closings to large corporate transactions for both buyers & sellers. With over 30 years of experience in the real estate transactions, we seamlessly guide our clients through the process so they can rest easy on closing day.
WILLS & ESTATES
You bring a set of objectives to the table and we bring a set of legal tools to accomplish those goals. Together we put together the puzzle pieces in a way that meets objectives and protects your beneficiaries. A knowledgeable partner is critical to helping you carry out your wishes through wills and other areas of estate planning.
A death in the family is never easy. BKC is honored to guide our clients through that tough time by handling the legal aspects of a deceased loved one's estate through probate administration.
A home is the largest purchase most people will ever make. Title insurance provides peace of mind that the seller actually owns the home she is selling. Today it is required by most loans, but it is a smart investment regardless. BKC acts as a title insurance agent, helping clients get the peace of mind they need.
