114 | | Owning a business brings on many emotions from excitement and true enjoyment to feeling overwhelmed and stressful. But, if you don’t have an in-house legal team, then you will need a lawyer or firm to guide you through the bevy of legal contracts and issues you will encounter along the way. Buxton & Collie, a boutique transactional firm in Mount Pleasant focusing on business law, helps clients with just that. Buxton & Collie serve as outside general counsel for many local companies and advise business owners on a wide range of transactions and contracts, as well as commercial and residential real estate matters. “We handle contracts and corporate governance, help form companies, help them raise money from outside investors, and eventually exit the business,” explained Nathan Johnson, a partner of Buxton & Collie. “We are there for the full life cycle of a business.” Buxton & Collie could help you put together a partnership agreement, put in place formal plans to retain and attract employees, raise money from investors, sell or buy a business and more. They represent small local businesses up to state and regional companies. “Working with Buxton & Collie is like having your own legal department and consultancy in house without the overhead,” said former client and Mount Pleasant resident Ted Pulsifer. “They embed themselves in your operations and requirements and never lose sight of your best interests as a business.” Buxton & Collie is located on Highway 17 in the lower part of Mount Pleasant with the iconic signage on its brown brick building. It was founded in 2010 by Jim Buxton, who previously worked for two of the largest firms in the country. He returned home to Mount Pleasant to open his own firm. Brian Collie joined forces with Buxton in 2012 and heads the firm’s real estate side of the practice. “The most fulfilling part of doing business law is helping clients succeed. Planning and achieving long term success,” Johnson added. If you need help with organizing your company, structuring a transaction or with any other business law matter, then Buxton & Collie is here to assist your needs.
