Business Organizations

For over 75 years, Crouch, Harwell, Fryar & Ferner, PLLC, has been helping family and closely-held corporations, LLCs, and other small businesses in Northwest Arkansas with their business organization needs. We also have extensive experience working with local non-profit entities.

We often work with our clients from the very beginning of their business ventures. We take the time to understand the business or non-profit and its goals, and then help to select and form the business entity that will best serve those goals. As a firm with deep roots in the community, our mission is not just the successful completion of transactions, but the development of enduring relationships with our clients. We want to serve as partners in the success of our business clients throughout the lives of their businesses.
