Successful entrepreneurship means that the prospective business owner, through consultation with the lawyer will become well versed about the role of local, state and federal government rules and regulations which impact new businesses in order to get the business off to a good start. Understanding the difference between various types of business entities and following through with appropriate licensure processes will enable the business owner to make the correct choice in business entity, which our attorneys will then form. Advice as to types of insurance, hiring practices, contracts, loans, and overall general best business practices will build the new or ongoing entrepreneur’s confidence in a strong business foundation.
Ongoing business owners need assistance in contract design and negotiation, along with non-compete, non-disclosure, customer credit extension agreements, and/or other legally binding documents. Commercial lease agreements and vendor/customer relationship are areas where our attorneys can assist the business owner in running an economically sound and successful operation to pass along through sale or inheritance.
Buying or Selling an ongoing business is an area where legal guidance can lead to good outcomes to avoid future litigation. Some of the types of businesses we have helped are: Law firms, medical practices, dental practices, churches and synagogues, restaurants, hair salons, construction companies, golf courses, real estate companies and many other types of small businesses. For such businesses, we have created operating agreements, employee handbooks, organizational documents, served as escrow agent for the sale or transfer of stocks and or assets, collection, formation of credit applications leading to better collection results, negotiation, brokering purchases and or advising and meeting with accountants, lenders, investors, payroll services, merchant credit services and other entities to ensure the business is operating according to plan. As our attorneys have a background in criminal law, successful recovery of theft by an employee or volunteer has helped our clients continue with their businesses without interruption.
