Business Lawyers Who Are Also Business Owners
Franz Hultgren Evenson, P.A., is home to not only business attorneys, but business owners as well. Several of our attorneys have experience establishing, operating and selling businesses outside of the law firm. We have firsthand knowledge of the legal issues that entrepreneurs, CEOs and owners face every day. From startups to “blue chip” companies, we have been providing legal services to business owners in St. Cloud and throughout central Minnesota for more than 40 years.
Advising Owners Throughout Their Company’s Life Cycle
Our business clients include startups that need assistance in forming a business entity, established companies that need legal help with day-to-day operations and expansion plans, and mature companies looking to transfer ownership or create an exit strategy. Our goal is to establish long-term relationships with our business clients, but we also take on one-time projects as outside counsel. Some of the legal services we provide include:
- Forming business entities and creating governance structures
- Creating employment agreements and other corporate governance documents
- Drafting and negotiating contracts
- Assistance in obtaining financing
- Legal support during mergers and acquisitions
- Selling, transferring ownership and other exit strategies
For larger companies, we also create stock options and executive compensation plans as well as negotiating shareholder buyouts. No business is too big or too small.
Helping Companies Of All Sizes Through Business Litigation
Our attorneys have decades of experience resolving disputes through negotiation and litigation. We have a deep understanding of the legal issues that businesses face from both outside and inside their company. From business torts to shareholder disputes, we can help through a range of litigation including:

- Unfair and deceptive business practices
We work with a diverse group of businesses across a broad range of industries. No matter what your legal needs are, we have the skills and resources to help you build, maintain and grow your business.
