What Dungan & LeFevre Can Do for Your Business

At Dungan & LeFevre, we know running a business takes more than a dream. Trusting your legal issues to an attorney is critical to a successful business. Our background allows us to help with a variety of legal aspects within business law, such as:

General Counsel Services

Larger companies may have the resources to have their own in-house legal team. Dungan & LeFevre can offer an alternative solution. We can collaborate with your business on an affordable solution while providing those services like an in-house counsel.

We can work with you to address your business’s immediate and long-term issues. Are you planning on expanding your business to other locations? Did someone threaten legal action against your company? You can rely on us to answer those questions and more.

Structuring Your Business

Suppose you’re starting your business or choosing to reorganize. In that case, we can help you decide and form the appropriate business entity, whether that’s an LLC, C Corporation, S Corporation, partnership, or holding company.

Correctly forming your business or dissolving it when appropriate can be overwhelming without proper guidance. When you need to establish yourself and reassure shareholders or investors, Dungan & LeFevre is ready to help you.

Business Transactions: Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers, acquisitions, and other complex business transactions have very real implications. There’s a lot to consider in ensuring equitable outcomes for all parties when buying or selling businesses.

Our experienced business attorneys can guide you every step of the way, from due diligence to the final sale or purchase.

Labor Disputes

When you join a company, you expect them to uphold their end of the bargain and compensate you for your labor. Wronged employees are entitled to pursue legal recourse when employers don’t fulfill their contract or fire them illegally. You’ll have a better chance of successfully pursuing legal action with the help of experienced attorneys.

Business owners expect their employees to follow their contracts, company policies, and state and federal regulations. When you’re forced to act in the company’s interest and terminate someone’s employment, you need to be ready to protect yourself. Our business law attorneys can help.

At Dungan & LeFevre, we have helped clients deal with legal disputes, including race, gender, age, and disability discrimination; retaliation; harassment; family and medical leave violations; and denied benefits, among others. We can help employees pursue their rights when payments and salaries are in dispute, and we’re prepared to help employers protect their interests.

Shareholder Agreements

Joining forces with business associates, friends, or family requires carefully crafted business agreements to protect the parties, their interests, and the business. We guide you and your colleagues through the process of creating well-thought-out and effective agreements.

Dungan & LeFevre understands that creating agreements is essential to establishing a prosperous working relationship. Whether you need help redrafting existing contracts or starting from scratch, we’re ready to help you create the ideal agreement for your business.

Contract Disputes

Contracts are a core element in business law. When you enter into a contract, you should be able to expect and rely upon the other party’s promise to comply with the terms. When terms are ignored or disputed, your business may suffer monetary loss.

But our experienced business law attorneys have the knowledge and background to help navigate contract disputes and seek financial remedy. We can help you identify potential issues, deal with breaches in contracts, or help you write a contract that’s fair and beneficial to all parties.

Environmental Regulations

Environmental laws may involve local, state or federal regulations, and turning to a law firm with experience in dealing with these issues can save you headaches in the future.

We’ve got the experience to help you monitor and comply with any relevant regulations your business might encounter. Whether your business affects clean air or water or if it could interfere with a native species’ habitat, you can call us for help.

Construction Disputes

Construction projects have several facets, and problems can arise when agreements are broken, or a subcontractor wasn’t insured adequately before work began. Being able to address legal matters quickly and efficiently should be something you entrust to an experienced law firm.

Our attorneys are prepared to find and rectify the legal issues impacting your construction operation. We can work with you to find contract breaches, or ensure you’ve complied with local regulations, among other construction-related issues. We know there are nuances in Ohio’s construction laws, which could create serious problems down the road for unaware contractors or homeowners.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Should You Call a Business Lawyer?

Each case is unique, but generally speaking, anytime you need a contract written or reviewed. Involving a business attorney can protect your interests and allow you to focus on your business.

What Does the Initial Consultation Look Like?

Our attorneys will assess your case during our first meeting to ensure we can meet your needs. It’s also a chance for you to get to know us and our values. Once we establish we can help you, we’ll begin gathering more information about your situation and work on creating a plan to help you.

To Settle or Go to Trial: When Do We Head to Court?

Not every case needs to go to trial, but that decision will have to be weighed after reviewing your case. Because each case is unique, there isn’t just one answer. You could benefit from taking a contractor to court after they’ve breached a contract, but you may decide to settle an employee dispute outside of court. We’ll be here to walk you through the advantages of either strategy.

Can the Same Law Firm Help Me with All My Business Law Needs?

At Dungan & LeFevre, we can help with almost all of your business law needs. If there is a matter that our firm does not handle, such as bankruptcy or intellectual property matters, we will put you in touch with those who can and serve as the coach of the team, to make sure everyone is in communication about the work that needs to be done. We’ll get to know you, your business, and your family, as we want you to feel like we’re part of the family.


Mr. Justice is the best attorney that our corporation has ever used in our 55 years in business. I cannot say enough good things about him.
