Legal Answers
11 Questions Answered

Q. Should two businesses trying to merge have separate attorneys to most effectively represent both sides?
A: Ideally, yes. The legal needs and goals of each business may well be different and each side should have independent counsel representing it. In very limited circumstances, an attorney can be retained to draft the transaction documents as instructed by the two businesses. However, in this circumstance, the attorney can not give either side legal advice and would be working for the solely for the resulting business (i.e. the merged business).
Q. I want to put a boat to LLC, but do not have one and time line is tight.
A: Until the LLC's Articles of Organization are filed with the California Secretary of State, the LLC does not legally exist and is not legally able to own either real or personal property. Creating a LLC can be a short process. The California Secretary of State's Sacramento Office provides 24 hour filing for Articles of Organization for an expedited fee of $500.00. See: http://www.sos.ca.gov/business-programs/business-entities/preclearance-expedited-services/
Q. I am a part owner of a 200 acre rice farm in N Calif. I own 24 % along with my sister each owning 24%.
A: I am unclear about your question. The short answer is Yes, it is possible for all owners, except the 9% owner, to sell their ownership shares to you and your sister. You mention a partnership which may imply that there is a partnership agreement of some sort. You should contact a business and real estate attorney to discuss this particular arrangement/ownership structure and to help you structure the sale.
