Southeast Michigan Business Contract Lawyers
Most transactions we conduct on a day-to-day basis are simple — we need something, someone agrees to provide it, a price is determined, the money and the needed item change hands. Everyone’s happy. Happy exchanges like this occur every second of every day everywhere in the world and we rarely give them a second thought. But for business owners and businesses alike, transactions have to be considered a bit more carefully.
At the law firm of Cooper & Riesterer, PLC, we provide an astute and carefully considered legal perspective on all business transactions to our clients throughout Livingston County and Southeast Michigan. But there are also financial issues involved in any commercial transaction and, for that reason, we have developed a network of highly skilled Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) who work with our clients to address the financial aspects of their business dealings.

Michigan Expands Options for Personal Asset Protection
Business owners now have a new way to protect their personal assets. With Governor Snyder’s signing of the Qualified Dispositions in Trust Act (QDTA) on December 5, 2016, Michigan joins 16 other states that permit domestic asset protection trusts (DAPTs). DAPTs are irrevocable trusts which, when drafted and funded correctly, can shield assets in trust from a person’s creditors.
New Overtime Rule Delayed, Possibly Scrapped
Businesses, breathe easier: the new overtime rule, most widely known for raising the threshold overtime exemption for salaried employees, originally set to take effect December 1, 2016, may be scuttled altogether. On November 11, 2016 Texas U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant granted an Emergency Motion for Preliminary Injunction, effectively blocking implementation of the rule. The Department of Labor appealed the decision on December 1, 2016, but recent developments suggest that the new administration may abandon the appeal and the rule altogether. In late January, the Department of Justice, on behalf of the Department of Labor, asked for a pause in the case to allow the new administration to consider its position on the matter. more
