We are unique in that we are not afraid to think outside of the box, and craft a solution for our clients which an ordinary attorney may not consider. This process has allowed us to prevail in situations where success is not apparent. Coupling that strategy with the latest in technological resources allow MLF to provide services which meet or beat those of the largest law firms in the country.
Organization of Entities - MLF provides its years of expertise to organize and fund a new business entity. We can form your for profit or not-for-profit corporation, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, general partnership, or association in a fraction of the time that other firms can do so, and at a fraction of the cost usually charged for comparable services. We can provide you with a turn-key organization, including all necessary tax identification numbers and business registrations. We have formed entities in many states besides Kansas and Missouri, and have formed off-shore entities as well. We can also assist you in start-up financing of your entity, including conventional bank financing, or private financing through investment banks or private placements.
Business Operations - MLF advises its clients with regard to all day-to-day issues which may confront today's business owners and operators. These areas include but are not limited to employer/employee issues, contracts and contractual relationships with customers, vendors and others, and governmental compliance matters.
Transactional Matters - MLF represents its clients in a wide array of transactional matters. Our representations have included the sale and purchases of businesses, sale and lease of real estate, oil and gas leases, and other such matters in which today's businesses are involved.
Consumer Finance - MLF provides representation in all areas of consumver finance, including regulatory compliance and representation in enforcement actions, organization and operation of entities in all areas of the industry, including online and storefront lending, call centers and other areas, state by state licensing, tribal affiliations. We represent our clients in state and federal courts across the country, before administration agencies such as the CFPB, and in arbitration forums.
Dispute Resolution Services - Litigation, Arbitration and Mediation - The attorneys at MLF have over 20 years of experience in all forms of dispute resolution. When a case cannot be resolved by settlement via arbitration or mediation to the satisfaction of our clients, we take the case to trial, be it before a jury or the court. Our motto has been "The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than for what you settled." Our trial experience is vast, spanning the Federal Courts of Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Texas, and most of the state courts in our region, and also in other states as well.
