William A. Price, Attorney at Law

Mergers, Acquisitions, and Recapitalization

What resource limits have hurt your company’s growth? Maybe you need to buy an existing business and profit from their products and customers. If selling or buying a business would remove your resource limits, talk to Bill. He will help you keep transactions confidential, identify financing sources, negotiate term sheets for deals, review target and buyer information, and arrange closing terms and post-closing dispute resolution that works for you and your business. He can also help you negotiate financing options not involving business purchase or sale. If you have a question about buying or selling a business, call 1-800-630-4780 or email Bill.

Business Transactions

Bill Price is our lawyer of reference at CEntrance. He’s helped us with intellectual property, software and hardware development contracts, and other business law issues. I would recommend him to anyone as a thorough, effective counselor.

Every company has owners, and the usual rule determining who gets what is the golden rule – whoever has the gold to invest makes the rules. Your company will need initial and later round capitalization, supplier and customer contracts, HR, risk management, credit, and collections documents. You should also have buy-sell agreements and other estate planning instruments in place and funded. Bill can help you draft and enforce your deals with insiders and outsiders. To get answers about the business operation questions bothering you, call 1-800-630-4780 or email Bill.

Administrative Law

Bill can make your life simpler and less exasperating when dealing with governments and taxes. Your company should be set up to minimize income, estate, sales, and property taxes across whatever business entities you use or states where you may have customers.  Well run companies also plan for regulatory and tax compliance, and may have to get licenses or permits from local, state, and federal administrative agencies before they can operate. If you have a question about tax liability or dealing with a state, federal, local, or international government agency, call 1-800-630-4780 or email Bill.

I have known Bill for decades as a friend and a member and officer (elder/deacon) of our church. This is an elected position, and speaks to the memberships general assessment of the character, ethics and reliability of the member. Furthermore, on many occasions, Bill Price would provide pro bono advice to members or friends of members that were in a jam and without resources to pay an attorney. Whenever there was a legal question, “let’s ask Bill about that” was often the suggestion..

If character matters to you. If dedication to your cause matters to you. Then you should consider engaging Bill Price.
