Paul J. Dominski
“I value long-term relationships with entrepreneurs, founders, and business owners founded on integrity, loyalty, and excellence.” 

Companies need sound, experienced business counsel on a wide range of matters.  Startups need advice to help them navigate the critical early stage.  Small- to medium-sized businesses need easy-to-understand, practical counsel on everything from contracts and corporate governance to regulatory compliance.  Many companies will need advice on raising capital, business succession and selling or buying businesses.  These companies rely on Paul Dominski’s practical, intelligent counsel.

An attorney who enjoys developing strong relationships with entrepreneurs based on trust and integrity, Paul does not confuse his clients with legal jargon.  He frames every discussion so that his clients understand exactly what he is talking about and how he can help them.

Paul also specializes in helping individuals structure their businesses, vacation properties and family camps to give owners flexibility in deciding how to pass them along to future generations.

Paul is a graduate of Cornell Law School an alumnus of the corporate legal department of Chadbourne & Parke, LLC in New York City.  He also served as an in-house attorney for the Oneida Indian Nation.  Paul brings a deep understanding of the complex issues facing businesses, helping him solve problems on many levels and at various stages of the business cycle. His interest in helping people goes beyond his professional life into his volunteer activities, which include working with the Upstate New York chapter of Team Red White & Blue, a not-for-profit that seeks to enrich the lives of veterans through physical and social activities, serving as a mentor for the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, and serving as a Director of Baldwinsville Meals on Wheels.

For start-up companies, mistakes can be costly or fatal during the critical early stages of their business.  Paul provides seasoned guidance to take some of the fear, stress and mystery out of the process and makes sure that important work is done correctly Paul takes his clients through every step of development, including:

• ownership structure and management
• raising capital
• employment and compensation matters, including equity allocation
• corporate formation documents
• registration statements
• negotiation with investors

Small- and medium-size businesses benefit from Paul’s experience crafting agreements that benefit his clients’ businesses while protecting their long-term financial interests. He provides an array of services, including:

• negotiating and drafting employment, sales and financing agreements
• counsel on intellectual property and corporate governance
• advice on buying, selling, or merging
• stock and asset purchase agreements
• non-disclosure and employment agreements

Businesses seeking capital through a private offering of securities seek Paul’s guidance through this complex process to ensure that the offering and sale raise the required funding and, importantly, stay in compliance with state and federal securities laws. Paul has worked on financing from $50,000 to several million dollars.

Owners of businesses, family camps, and vacation property are concerned about the financial implications and intra-family dynamics of passing their holdings on to family members.  They want to ensure the successful management of their assets in the future and they wonder how to work out use issues (for camps and vacation property). These owners consult with Paul for advice on transitioning and preserving assets. He helps families think about the legal and personal issues that can arise so that problems can be avoided and clients can get peace of mind about the security of their assets.

Healthcare groups including physician groups and organizations, hospitals, and Accountable Care Organizations needing help with compliance issues, facility development, acquisitions and sales, joint ventures, physician recruitment and staffing issues benefit from Paul’s wide-ranging knowledge of healthcare law on the state and federal levels.

Business Transactions

It doesn’t matter whether your company is in its angel phase or has grown into a mature, mid-sized business, you need advice you can trust. Perhaps more importantly, you need an advisor you can trust: an attorney who not only can map out the legal landscape for you so that your business can avoid pitfalls and take advantage of favorable laws, but someone who can give you sound guidance that supports your business processes and helps you grow.

Paul Dominski has made a career of building relationships with entrepreneurs who have created their own businesses. He takes an interest in the companies he advises and the people who run them because he enjoys the challenge of helping them succeed. His extensive work with companies of all sizes and stages of growth has given him a deeper understanding of the legal, contractual and personnel issues they face, and he’s ready to help you with practical, creative solutions to your challenges.

Family Camp/Business/Vacation Property Transition Planning

If your family owns a camp or vacation property, or you have a family-owned business, you have probably wondered about how to hand it down to the next generation without causing them undue financial burden. In the case of family camps and vacation property, transitioning is never as simple as handing the property down though a will; use issues often arise from existing family problems. Owners must consider a variety of difficult questions:  Who will care for the entity? Who will be in charge? How will you ensure that someone will preserve it for future generations? Paul has dealt with these issues and others, and will advise you on the kinds of arrangements you must make now to prevent serious financial and personal problems later.

Healthcare Law

The rapidly changing nature of healthcare delivery in this country has made adherence to legislation incredibly challenging. You can put Paul’s experience representing physician groups, hospitals, and Accountable Care Organizations to work for you as your organization moves forward in this heavily regulated environment. Paul can help you avoid many of the problems facing healthcare organizations as he advises you on important matters such as:

• state and federal regulatory compliance
• facility development
• acquisitions and sales of existing medical practices and licensed facilities
• joint ventures among physician groups and hospitals
• physician recruitment and contracting
• patient care and medical staff matters
