Why Lexern Law Group?
Lexern Law Group has one objective: to give our clients peace of mind by helping them to create, grow, and preserve their legacies.
You need a business & estate planning attorney who can protect your best interests. It is easy for lawyers to do work for family businesses or professional practices as it comes in – a purchase of business or contract here, an estate plan there, and so on. But, the true service to business and professional clients that lawyers perform is business planning. It is in this realm that the lawyer acts as the artist in creating business and succession plans that allow the business to continue despite the difficulties that come with mixing family with business and work, by respecting what is commonly the genius and hard work of the founder of the business while still ensuring that others can carry on. You need business & estate planning attorneys who learn your story, help you achieve your goals, and protect your dreams. We have offices in Libertyville, Illinois, and Glendale, Wisconsin.

Business and Corporate Law
Running a small or mid-sized business is complicated. We understand that. When you need legal advice on business formation, business purchase or sale, or contract negotiation, we can provide a highly experienced and practical legal advice at a fraction of the hassle, time, and cost of big law firms. Business owners rely on Lexern Law Group for its legal knowledge and practical legal advice that helps them minimize litigation risks and optimize business opportunities during the start-up, transition, reorganization, or expansion phases. Our clients get real value, along with real results, and a relationship that’s second to none.
Unlike large corporations, family-owned businesses often fail because their founders or senior-level partners retire, become incapacitated, or die. Problems can also arise when the founder, or one of the partners, gets divorced or the partners no longer get along and decide to part ways. Without thorough planning, any of these events can destroy an otherwise successful family-owned business. Every business has to change ownership at some point, and whether or not it survives such a change often depends on its succession planning. Business succession planning is the process of preparing for a transfer of the business to another person (often child or children of the founder) or a business entity.
In a perfect world, nothing would ever go wrong in your personal or business relationship. Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world. People get divorced, children are sometimes born with special needs, people get injured and suffer from debilitating health conditions, family disputes can ruin relationships and lead to a long and expensive legal wrangling. Our client-centered approach, however, provides practical solutions that help clients to understand the risks and plan for the future. In fact, our clients often get a peace of mind that their personal and business affairs (and affairs of those who are dear to them) are properly covered with their best interests in mind.
