Tuesley Hall Konopa, LLP combines the resources of a large firm with the personal attention and efficiency of a small law firm. Our talented team of professional and knowledgeable attorneys is committed to respecting and understanding our clients' interests and goals. As a full-service law firm we provide business counsel, civil litigation and estate planning legal services for business owners and individuals throughout northern Indiana and southwestern Lower Michigan.
Beyond counseling, mediation and arbitration as the first steps to avoiding trial, our litigation team provides critical analysis of potential claims, prosecution and defense strategies and outcome evaluations as well as relief by obtaining injunctions and court orders to prevent improper conduct by competitors, employees, business partners and adjoining property owners. In cases where litigation becomes the necessary course of action, our litigation attorneys provide experienced representation in state and federal courts. As legal counselors, knowing the industry and understanding the business helps us position every case for an efficient resolution, with the ultimate goal being the most favorable outcome for our clients in the most cost effective manner available.
An estate consists of all the property that a person owns or controls, whether held solely or in some joint manner, and all other money or wealth that would be generated upon someone's death. A cornerstone of Tuesley Hall Konopa's practice is helping business owners and individuals protect and preserve these assets through estate planning and the administration of estates. An estate plan should allow you to control and manage your property while you are alive and well, take care of you and your loved ones if you become disabled, and when you die allow your property to pass to those you want, when you want, and in the way you want, while saving as many tax dollars, court costs and professional fees as possible.
Starting and growing a business is an evolution. From business formation through exit and succession planning our business attorneys focus on understanding every client’s personal and professional goals. This focus gives us the insight to be effective advocates and advisors as clients face the challenges and opportunities unique to their businesses. Along this path Tuesley Hall Konopa offers business counsel in the areas of business transactions, buy/sell agreements, partnership agreements, financing agreements, business growth and tax planning, employment agreements and other legal services required by business owners in the day-to-day operations.
