Forming A Business

Your business can’t move forward and grow without a solid foundation. There are many issues which can arise during a company’s startup years. Our business law attorneys can assist you with each phase all and know what to do when problems come up.

Choosing an Entity – Different states have different laws, and in some states, you can organize your business as a corporation, a sole proprietorship, a limited partnership, a general partnership, a registered limited liability partnership or a limited liability company. Our attorneys will work with you to evaluate your situation taking into consideration your tax exposure and personal liability. They will then give you options and recommend the most appropriate structure for your business.

Contracts and Agreements

Correctly drafted and worded contracts can protect you from future litigation. One good example is your employment contract. Every employment contract should include a non-compete clause to protect you and your company from pirated trade secrets and stolen customer lists.

Our business law attorneys carefully review every contract. They scrutinize every lease, every vendor agreement, every buy/sell agreement, and any other business contract to ensure you are protected and that you are aware of your rights and obligations.

Asset Protection

You are the business owner, and your name is associated with the business. Even if you organize your company to limit your liability, there are other steps you should consider taking to provide additional protection for your assets. Our attorneys will recommend whether to transfer ownership, set up trusts, or take other steps to assure your assets are protected. 

Once the business is formed, our attorneys will help you with its natural growth and progression.
Once you’ve decided on the appropriate business structure, several other tasks must be accomplished during your business setup.

Intellectual Property

We know what it takes to protect your logo, trade name, and any other intellectual property from your company. We can assist you with the registration of your service marks and trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
