Experienced Legal Help For Your Business

Clients of Gayheart Law, PLLC, regularly bring a broad spectrum of business law needs to my office. I am attorney Melissa Gayheart, and I have the knowledge and experience to help with these business law matters.

I provide legal counsel for businesses informed by experience with a variety of business and tax matters, from creating an LLC or corporation to tax planning and compliance for your ongoing business operations or your individual needs.

More Than 25 Years Of Experience

Starting a business is a challenging venture that often brings business clients to my firm. With more than two decades of experience with corporate finance, accounting and business law, I am ready to help you with the process of turning plans into profitable action. Taking care of legal details first allows you to focus on delivering quality goods or services to your customers.

Varied Legal Services For Businesses

Among my Lexington-based firm’s many offerings for businesses, I offer direction in the following areas:

  • Business formation (startup)
  • Business operations
  • Contract drafting, revising, negotiating and signing
  • Compliance with complex tax laws, and employment laws

Tax Planning And Guidance

Corporate taxes and regulations have been an interest of mine since I started law school. In my private practice, I have focused on the following legal issues:

  • Individuals and small businesses with a variety of issues including retirement planning, wealth preservation, capital gains, selling a business
  • State corporate income tax in the Commonwealth of Kentucky
  • Payroll withholding taxes for employers

I have earned a strong reputation among Lexington-area businesses through my sophistication and knowledge in these and related areas. Tax laws are complex and often opaque and create many opportunities for individuals and small businesses to make expensive errors. My guidance can ensure you understand the steps necessary to comply with these laws and regulations and that you have properly taken into account issues related to taxes.
