Should You Take Your Company Public?

cvsoci.al Shorter Answer: If your goal is to exit, then the answer is no. Click for the longer answer.


How Do You Keep The Sale Process Confidential?

cvsoci.al Short Answer: “Don’t tell anyone.” Every seller should be paranoid about keeping a potential sale confidential. Your employees, customers, competitors, and vendors should only learn about the sale AFTER the closing and in a manner that you, the seller, are in complete control. Click for the lo...


Should You Feel Guilty About Your Employees After The Sale Takes Place?

cvsoci.al Short Answer: No As a business owner who is selling, you have absolutely no cause to feel guilty or responsible for your employee’s after you have sold your company. The closing of the sale of your company is YOUR payday.


The Key Plan Small Business Owners Might Be Overlooking

cvsoci.al When you’re starting or growing a small business, chasing the next client or deal often feels like the be-all-end-all priority.

Should You Sell Your Business To a Third Party?

cvsoci.al In most cases, the answer to this question is “yes.” By selling to a third party, you will have the highest probability of receiving the most compensation for your business in either cash or publicly traded stock, and you are increasing your chances of a larger financial payout.


Should You Transfer Your Business To a Family Member?

cvsoci.al Many business owners dream of transferring their lives' work to their children, this dream has worked successfully on many occasions but dealing with family members in a business relationship is one of the toughest challenges faced during a business transfer. Your family members have already experie...


Should You Sell Your Business To a Key Employee or a Group of Key Employees?

cvsoci.al Sell to employees only if their purchase price matches or exceeds what a third party would pay. The most significant disadvantage of selling to employees is MONEY. Best employees don’t equate to the most successful entrepreneurs.

General information

In 1977, Ned Minor and John Brown shared a vision; a vision which changed their lives and the lives of many others from that point forward. The Minor & Brown (M&B) vision was to change the role of an attorney from a legal representative to one of a business counselor and trusted advisor to clients. This vision became a concept and the concept became reality. The corporate tagline/motto of “Law for Business Owners from Start to Finish” applies this concept in all aspects of the present day business. The motto is embraced by attorneys and staff alike and carries over into everyday communication with our clients, as well as the community. When one thinks of a law firm, one usually does not think about customer service. We at M&B have customer service on the forefront of our minds at all times. Our attorneys and staff strive to provide the best service possible to our clients, which for us, means achieving the highest level of satisfaction in an ethical and efficient manner. We truly care about our clients. When conducting day-to-day business, whether in person, via email or on the telephone, employees at Minor & Brown interact with our clients in a professional and courteous manner. There is a definite “culture” at Minor & Brown; a culture that fosters communication and professionalism. Our clients, most of whom own businesses, appreciate the personal approach that M&B gives them. Many of our clients are privately-held businesses and expect to be treated with dignity and respect. In some cases, we have represented multiple generations of ownership in companies. At other times, we helped form companies and counseled those same owners for decades until they exited the business; moving on to the next stage of their lives. Entrepreneurs, who ultimately become business owners, pour their hearts and souls into their businesses. Our clients will tell you that M&B cares just as much about those businesses as they do and are thrilled to have representation that is truly concerned about the success of their business. Entrepreneurs are a special lot! It takes a great deal of dedication, ingenuity, and general “smarts” to start a business, let alone handle the daily operations. M&B understands and with careful planning and advice, empowers clients to attain the pinnacle all entrepreneurs endeavor to reach; true success!
