Why might you need a business lawyer? Maybe you are going to buy or sell a business, or perhaps thinking about expanding overseas, or you might want to restructure your current business. Maybe you need a professional to draft, review or negotiate a complex contract. The list of business services that we can provide is indeed lengthy, but consulting with a business attorney for any issue that you think might have legal implications can greatly minimize future problems and possible legal headaches over time.

At Mercado & Rengel, we make your business our business. This means that our firm is with you in order to avoid legal problems and anticipate your business needs at every step of the process, from formation to the closing or sale of your business. We have been helping business clients for over 20 years, including individual entrepreneurs, start-ups, established family businesses, and large corporations, in the U.S. and internationally. Many of our clients have been with us since we began our practice because they know we always act in their best interest.


We understand that company formation or the registration of an existing business may seem like a daunting task involving legal complexities. Yet, formally registering a company gives stakeholders or owners of the business benefits and protections that may not exist when you operate without registration. Some of the advantages involve reduction of tax burdens and protection from personal liability.

In the United States, it is almost a prerequisite to operating a business that you form some type of business entity. The choice of business entity is an important decision that has a lasting effect and financial implications on your business and should be made with the advice of a business lawyer and a tax expert. The most common forms of business entities are the Corporation (Inc. or Corp.), S-Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), Partnership, and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) -each business type has its own requirements, formation and maintenance costs, characteristics, personal liability, taxation, and ease of management.

At Mercado & Rengel our experts will advise new or existing business owners on:

  1. Choosing the appropriate place in which to register;

  2. Selecting the appropriate type of business entity to register, or switch to, whether it be a Corporation, S-Corporation, Limited Liability Company, Partnership, Limited Liability Partnership;

  3. The tax implications of each business entity; and,

  4. Drafting all of the required documents to properly establish and register a business.


Over the last 20 years, we at Mercado & Rengel have developed an intimate knowledge of business, finance and crisis management. We combine this specialized knowledge with our legal abilities to help business owners and organizational leaders with decision making in regards to their overall business strategy. Leaders make many decisions every day, but strategic planning in our view requires a focus on the short and long-term needs of the organization, its resources, and the goals sought to be achieved.
