At Cook & Cook we advise individuals, for-profit businesses, and charities as to both potential and actual legal issues in which they are or may become involved.

We handle many aspects of business and personal transactions, such as business formation (Arizona LLC, corporation, & partnership) and business dissolution, real estate and business sales and acquisitions, federal trademark registration, business succession planning (including transfer to family or sale), asset protection, Arizona probate and general estate planning (Arizona will & Arizona trust).

Our representation of clients often begins with the formation of a business entity and continues through the development and growth of the business to sale of the business or transfer to the next generation.

We also represent clients on single business and personal matters — many of our clients are retired or salaried employees who need assistance with income tax and estate planning matters.

We pride ourselves on our efficiency and responsiveness. We realize that our work needs to be done according to the client’s schedule, not ours, and we make great effort to accommodate our clients’ schedules.
