Business Law

Every business should have a relationship with an attorney who will be knowledgeable of their company and who will learn the goals of the company and its owners. Because they consult many companies, a business attorney often will be knowledgeable in areas that can maximize the company's profitability, including recognizing revenue opportunities and lowering the company's regulatory, structural, and tax expenses.

Below are business law areas in which I practice, and related articles can be viewed through the provided links:

Business Formation
When you are planning to start a new business, legal advice up front is crucial, and I can provide that help.

  • Setting up a business entity requires thought and planning. The first question is: what kind of entity, i.e., corporation, LLC, etc.? Once that decision is made, the details need attention. What governmental filings are necessary?
  • Are employment contracts necessary?
  • How are the business records to be maintained - and by whom?
  • What initial contracts, such as leases, franchise agreements, etc., need to be put in place?
  • Financial record keeping
  • Do you need a corporate stockholder/partner/member agreement to address issues such as your disability, transfer of interests to other persons, and what will happen to your interest upon your death? (For most people, the answer is almost always, "Yes", and a restrictive agreement is a must.)
  • Business transfers and business succession

Asking the Right Questions is Important
Our job is to take the time to get to know you and the unique aspects of your business goals well enough to ask the right questions and point you on the right path. If I do not know what you have in mind, I cannot be of much help. Once I have a grasp on your thinking, that makes it easier to draft the right documents, e.g., articles of incorporation, partnership documents, LLC articles, bylaws, minutes, etc. And I will also work closely with your accountant to make sure that the proper tax framework is in place. Once you are in business, I will be here to help with any legal complications that may arise, and review any documents that have legal ramifications.

Benefit From My Years of Experience in Business Formation
Picking the right type of entity and setting it up properly is a major decision when you decide to go into a business. I have seen what works and what is to be avoided.
