Our attorneys have extensive experience representing both new and existing businesses and their owners. When advising new businesses we recognize that the task of setting up a new business can be daunting.
There are many rules and regulations that your business may be subject to. The issues become even more complex if the business will involve multiple owners or employees, the development or use of intellectual property, involvement in a heavily regulated industry, or the use of outside financing.
We provide helpful practical advice to new businesses to assist them with the process of incorporation and the development of policies and agreements needed to minimize risk and avoid liability and conflicts down the road. Some of the services we provide new businesses include:
- Planning for Liability Protection
- Entity Formations and Filings
- Shareholder & Partnership Agreements
- Operating Agreements
Existing businesses are faced on a daily basis with situations involving real estate, leases, employees, vendors, contracts and financing. In addition, at some point in time every business faces one or more major issues involving either partner or shareholder withdrawals, the acquisition of a new business, or the sale, merger or dissolution of the business.
We can provide guidance on how to best navigate these legal challenges in the most cost-efficient manner and negotiate and document the necessary agreements. Because we work as a team, the expertise of our entire team of lawyers and your other professional advisors are available to assist in the planning process. With this approach we are able to provide much more comprehensive solutions and strategies to solve the legal needs of your business.
