Assertive Illinois Attorney Protects Your Business Interests

Seasoned lawyer provides strong legal support to company owners in the Springfield area

The business world can be as risky as it is rewarding, so if you are planning to start your own Illinois company, expand your current operations, or deal with conflicts, you need to know how to protect yourself and your assets. At James R. Potter, P.C., I take pride in supporting the enterprising individuals who help grow the economy in the Springfield area and throughout Illinois. I am dedicated to helping business owners and corporate boards run their businesses smoothly and confidently while avoiding risk. I skillfully manage contract issues, shareholder disputes, mergers and acquisitions, and trade agreements, and I am an aggressive advocate at both the bargaining table and during litigation.

Strategic legal counselor advises on a full range of business issues

For new businesses, there are liability and tax considerations that must be made. I review clients’ business plans and advise on all formation matters to ensure your company’s goals are being met. Once the business is formed, I continue to help it grow by advising on insurance coverage, investment strategies and corporate compliance issues.

Clients may benefit from my firm's advice regarding:

  • Business formation and dissolution
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Contract review and development
  • Due diligence
  • Financial investment counseling
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Securities issues
  • Tax planning

As a knowledgeable business law attorney, I aim to provide thorough, informed guidance for businesses of all sizes and at all stages. I am prepared to handle legal issues of any size or complexity that affect your enterprise. If litigation becomes necessary, you can count on me to work tirelessly to defend your rights in court and provide the best possible results for your case.

Tenacious attorney represents clients in litigation and contract disputes

Conflicts with employees, customers or other companies can disrupt your business operations and affect consumer confidence. When breach of contract or shareholder disputes arise, I will work to resolve them as quickly, efficiently and favorably as possible. If commercial litigation becomes necessary, I will work tirelessly to defend your rights. I am both a seasoned negotiator and litigator who aggressively advocates for your financial interests in the boardroom and the courtroom.
