Scott J. Seiler on Business Law

Scott SeilerAre you faced with a complex legal issue that could severely impact your business? Striving to gain market share and are considering the purchase of a competing firm? Is retirement and a simpler life enticing you to sell your business or property? Scott Seiler, 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year, as awarded by Twin West Chamber of Commerce, has vast experience with a myriad of business matters. He organizes corporations, LLC’s and partnerships; drafts state of the art operating, member control and buy/sell agreements; conducts business purchases and sales; and negotiates complex (and simple) business, commercial and real estate contracts.
Known for effective problem-solving, Scott can drill down and spot practical and legal problems in a transaction, organization or corporate structure that others simply don’t see.

His experience as a trial lawyer provides the basis for his practice philosophy. “I know what it’s like for a client to deal with litigation and the court room. Sometimes it’s necessary and in such cases we advocate zealously. But, for the most part, we have been able to help our clients establish and implement policies and procedures that keep them out of harm’s way.”

Scott has created a niche representing business organizations regularly in need of legal assistance, serving as “on demand” counsel. From business start-up and organizational matters, to terminations and succession planning, Scott partners with clients on every aspect of their legal needs. “I play the role of generalist, with a focus on corporate and business transactions, employment law (for employers), real estate, and creditor/debtor matters. I also troubleshoot and serve as watchdog, taking on tasks such as managing litigation across the country, hiring lobbyists when needed, and consulting at board meetings for companies of all sizes.”

Beyond legal matters, Scott provides insight and direction as a member of the Sholom Community Alliance Board of Directors, where he sits on the Budget & Finance and Human Resource committees, and as a member of the General Counsel of AISH, Minnesota.
