Business Law

A small business doesn't mean smaller legal obligations. Whether you are IBM or IBM Convenience Store, Inc., the basic legal issues you face are the same, and you need a law firm that knows business law to tell you what you are getting into and make sure you get what you pay for.

The legal ramifications of any business act have significant impact on your bottom line. The value of a business depends on its legal agreements and obligations, and it is therefore imperative these agreements are done correctly. A bad lease can make your business worthless, regardless of its annual revenue.

Since 1942, Demakis Law Offices, P.C., has been helping business owners — from the corner convenience store to the corner office of large, national corporations — protect their assets, know their legal obligations and grow their revenue and business. Our firm represented the first group to bring an Outback Steakhouse franchise to Massachusetts, negotiating, among many other legal documents, lease agreements across New England with some of the nation's largest property owners.

We put that experience with sophisticated agreements and entities to work for our clients who have a more localized focus, while still keeping in mind the size of the deal and entities involved. Over the life of the firm we have successfully concluded literally thousands of convenience store, package store, gas station, restaurant and other business purchases and sales for buyers and sellers, and the majority of our clients come from repeat business or referrals.
