Corporate & Business Law

Whether you are starting a new business or have a mature business in need of legal representation, we are able to assist you. We frequently advise clients with regard to entity selection (choosing among C-corporations, S-corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), Limited Partnerships (LPs), and other entities). Your choice may involve a number of considerations, including tax treatment, number of partners/owners, the level of asset/creditor protection desired, the anticipated size of the business, and the type of assets that will be owned by the entity. Once the business type is determined, we can also assist business owners with ongoing business needs such as purchases (acquisitions) and sales, mergers, financing, transfers, contracts, dissolution/winding-up, and other needs. In addition, because we represent companies and landowners who frequently encounter governmental regulations, we frequently work with Wyoming’s environmental quality and tax agencies, and with state and federal land management agencies.

Nicholas & Tangeman has represented Mountain Cement Company, Albany County’s largest non-government employer for many years. Mountain Cement operates several quarries and a cement manufacturing plant. Because of the nature of its operations, Mountain Cement constantly interacts with Wyoming’s environmental quality and tax agencies, and with state and federal land management agencies, and we represent Mountain Cement before all agencies. We also represent Mountain Cement on contract, real property, minerals and employment matters. We have successfully litigated several matters for Mountain Cement, principally construction and contract disputes.

We represent In-Situ, Inc., a large firm that designs, manufactures and sells environmental monitoring equipment. In-Situ is also involved in in-situ mining projects through a subsidiary, Solution Mining, Inc. We represent In-Situ on a variety of legal issues, including contract, employment and litigation matters.

We also represent varied smaller businesses, ranging from area ranches (water rights, real property, estate planning), to high tech start ups evolving from University of Wyoming projects (business organization, contracts) to service companies (employment issues, construction disputes).

In addition to our local clients, we represent national and international clients on matters ranging from trademarks to property acquisition to environmental permitting when they conduct business in Wyoming.
