Corporate/Business Law

Our clients range from start-ups to well established businesses. The industries we represent are varied, such as: Logistics, Entertainment, Construction, Hospitality, Medical, Food, Restaurant, Computer/Information Technology, Biotechnology and many others. We provide a full-range of services dealing with corporate governance, business formation, drafting, reviewing and negotiating agreements of all kinds, due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, trademarks and copyright, and government compliance issues, to name a few.

Young and established companies have continuous legal needs.  Both Missouri and Illinois economies are driven by small business.  Entrepreneurs and emerging companies are vital to job creation and the growth of our economy, not only in the Midwest and St. Louis region, but nationwide.

Our attorneys understand this need, they provide a full range of corporate legal services to entrepreneurs, both foreign and domestic, entertainers, immigrants, and any businessperson seeking legal advice. Our experience working at some of the best law firms in the region has prepared us to provide high-quality work combined with practical knowledge.  Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we can further understand the risks and frustrations associated with starting and running a business.  As a result, we can come up with “outside the box” solutions to assist you in running your business without legal obstacles.

The practice areas of McQueen Awad LLC are ideal for the needs of foreign entrepreneurs.  Our international legal services and corporate law practices are appealing to many foreign nationals who may also require immigration law consulting.  Foreign entrepreneurs have a particularly unique set of immigration law and corporate law needs.  In addition to questions arising about setting up the business, there are also questions about their status in the United States:

Does owning a business affect my status?
Can I sponsor myself if I own a business?
Can I be an investor in a business?

Conversely, immigration usually directly impacts how the business is set up.  For these reasons, it is extremely important that an experienced attorney in both corporate law and immigration law is sought in these situations, such as those attorneys at McQueen Awad LLC.
