What We Do
A corporate lawyer can be involved at any point in a corporation’s life. Prior to the company’s existence, a lawyer guides the business owners through the different entity structures and helps them decide how to form their business. As the business progresses, a corporate lawyer ensures continued legal compliance, resolves disputes, and helps structure new business deals by drafting and negotiating contracts. At the end of the enterprise’s life, a corporate lawyer helps dissolve the corporation.
At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we structure and plan your business for success. Our attorneys take the time to thoroughly understand your company, so we can provide sound advice. We embrace a collaborative approach by contracting other counsel, if necessary, to dive deeper into the complexities of corporate law and tax issues and how it applies to your case.
We want you to feel confident with every business decision you make. That’s why we take our time to educate you and present all viable options. Lead attorney, Stephen Hunnicutt, began his career as in-house counsel for a Fortune 500 energy company. Since then, he has worked as a litigator in both large and small firms before starting his own law practice.

Contract Drafting, Review, and Negotiation
Businesses are built on legal documents. They are the framework for how a company operates. From employment agreements to services contracts to corporate bylaws, these documents are in place to protect the parties’ interests and reduce the chances of disagreement.
Even with a legal document in place, disputes can arise. Maybe one party interprets the terms differently or there are some ambiguities. When the parties give different meanings to the contract’s terms, there is confusion, frustration, and possibly lost business.
The Dallas corporate lawyers at Hunnicutt Law have a talent for crafting and negotiating commercial contracts. To avoid disputes and the possibility of litigation, we draft legal documents that clearly state each party’s responsibilities and protect the business’s interests. We also ensure that each document meets all legal requirements. If you are presented with a contract, we will review and negotiate the terms to ensure they are legally enforceable and do not expose you to unanticipated liability.
Business disputes arise all too frequently. How you handle them can be the difference between your business’s success and failure. There are several options to resolve your dispute.
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
Our firm offers ADR services to those who want to take a less formal, less expensive, and less time-consuming route than litigation. To resolve a dispute, you have the option of negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. Our Dallas corporate lawyers will explain the advantages, disadvantages, and likelihood of success for each type of ADR and will negotiate and draft your contracts with the thought a dispute may arise in the future.
In some cases, litigation is unavoidable. If your business is facing a lawsuit, whether being sued or suing another party, you need a seasoned litigator representing you. With more than 30 years of experience litigating, a Dallas corporate lawyer at The Hunnicutt Law Group can anticipate your business’s needs and prepare for the obstacles ahead to be successful in court.
