We make a difference in the lives of our business clients by serving as business attorney and adviser while assisting in the implementation of business and legal strategies. Our business attorneys serve as proactive allies with our clients, in and out of the board room, providing effective, efficient, and strategic legal and business advice to help them achieve their business goals. We distinguish ourselves from other law firms by providing results-oriented solutions to achieve our clients’ business needs and personal objectives. We communicate frequently with our clients through seminars and newsletters to keep them at the forefront of new laws and business trends.
Blalock Walters has represented and continues to represent many of the region’s oldest and largest locally-owned businesses, as well as new businesses, whether due to relocation or otherwise. Additionally, we represent numerous out-of-state corporations that require local legal representation. Clients include an array of closely-held companies, merchants, banks, agricultural enterprises and entrepreneurs. We handle a wide variety of matters for our business clients, including creation of their businesses, purchases and sales, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and agreements of all types, leasing, lending or borrowing, tax matters, and dissolution.
Our business attorneys make a difference by working to solve the myriad of problems businesses deal with on a daily basis. In seeking solutions to the increasingly complex problems faced by businesses today, we provide counseling to avoid future problems, and where controversies exist, we make a difference by providing litigation and “work-out” services for our clients.
Examples of recent major engagements include:

- orchestrated creative lender/borrower multi-million dollar “work outs” in loan and joint venture transactions to avoid foreclosure or litigation; and
- represented numerous sellers to a national purchaser in a focused industry segment and achieved tremendous value for sellers outside of the purchaser’s standard deal terms.
