Business & Banking Law
Our business law team represents companies ranging from startups to large corporations in the Puget Sound and throughout Washington. We work with clients in a variety of industries, including healthcare, renewable energy, technology, real estate, financial services, and manufacturing. We understand our clients’ goals and objectives, and we bring business acumen and decades of legal experience to the table for our clients.
We help business clients in the early stages of their ventures, including corporate and LLC formation, LLC agreements and shareholder agreements. Our team handles a variety of transactions, from mergers and acquisitions to asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements, and technology licensing. As clients grow, we help with all of their employment law needs. When challenges arise, we represent clients in shareholder disputes and other corporate and commercial litigation. And when businesses reach their later stages, we assist with dissolution and winding up.
For decades, Beresford Booth has represented local and regional banks through its comprehensive lending and creditors’ rights practice.

Our team assists financial institutions with loan modifications and workouts. We also perform a variety of judicial and non-judicial foreclosures, including foreclosure of security interests in borrowers’ business property and business ownership interests, and forfeitures of real estate contracts.
