From start-up to wind-up, Durrett Law & Title has the requisite knowledge and experience to guide you.

In a world full of inexpensive business transaction shortcuts, our firm prides itself in providing valuable legal advice that is tailored to meet our client's specific needs.

We believe that handling matters correctly on the front end and going beyond the "shortcuts" will cost you a fraction of what it will cost to remedy initial missteps. Our attorneys and knowledgeable staff will discuss the big picture view for your business plans and explore various options and paths to accomplish your goals.

Every business transaction will impact a company's future in multiple ways. Retaining a lawyer in the initial stages of a transaction will provide meaningful guidance and benefits that helps your business to avoid certain pitfalls. We have experience in working with a client's other professionals, such as tax and wealth advisors, to ensure that our legal advice is consistent with our client's goals.

At Durrett Law and Title, we provide a wealth of legal experience and industry-specific knowledge to businesses in Lincoln Parish and across Louisiana.

  • Business Formation, Operating Agreements and By-Laws
  • Business Governance
  • Business Mergers, Stock (or Membership Interest) Acquisitions and Divestitures
  • Shareholder or Member Agreements
  • Business Asset Sales and Acquisitions

Furthermore, our firm has years of experience in resolving disagreements amongst business shareholders, members or partners.
