Attorneys Handling Commercial Probate Matters

There are numerous complications involved when someone’s businesses interests need to be transferred in probate.

You need the help of an experienced team of lawyers to protect your interests and help you understand the process.

The attorneys of the Law Offices of P. Sterling Kerr, P.C., represent clients in Henderson and throughout the states of Nevada, California and Utah in commercial probate matters. The firm combines decades of experience and unique knowledge of commercial probate to provide exceptional legal counsel and litigation support.

Representing Beneficiaries

In addition to helping clients create comprehensive estate plans to transfer business interests, the firm’s lawyers represent beneficiaries set to receive these commercial interests in probate. The attorneys handle matters that include:

  • Transfers of business entities: Generally, business ownership interests can only be transferred if the business is solely in the name of the person transferring the interests, as in a sole proprietorship. Basically, a beneficiary in these cases becomes the owner of the business.
  • Designations: For LLCs and other shared business interests, a beneficiary can be designated to take the place of the person transferring the interest. For this to be possible, it must be stated in the LLC operating documents.
  • Litigation: Whether you are dealing with a transfer of a business entity or a designation in an LLC or similar entity, it is likely that you will face resistance, disputes will arise and litigation could result.

The firm’s estates and probate litigation attorneys are experienced and prepared to handle all aspects of commercial probate. They will walk you through the process and make sure your interests are protected.
