Starting a small business can be a complicated process. Our skilled attorneys understand each step and will coach you through the process. When you decide to set up your own company, we can assist you with its formation, and the development of a sound business plan.
We will help you determine which type of business entity works best for you, based on a variety of considerations. We will explain the differences between a proprietorship, a partnership, a corporation, a limited liability company (LLC), or other entity. Once you choose a business entity, we can file the appropriate paperwork and keep your business active with annual filings. If needed, we will also assist you with any real estate issues related to your new business, such as leasing space for your restaurant, constructing your office building, or renovating a manufacturing facility.
You are knowledgeable about your own business' products and services, but you may need help understanding how to run a company. We spend time with all our clients, listen to your company plan, and advise you which parts may succeed and which aspects can be improved. We also can provide you with helpful advice on how to operate a business once yours is set up. In the event of a contract or other dispute, we can assist you in resolving it, or with any ensuing litigation, or refer you to a more specialized trial attorney.
We can also help you with your business succession planning, so that when the time is right, your business can be transferred to your family, your employees, a trust for the benefit of your heirs, or any of a number of alternative beneficiaries.
Most business or corporate law attorneys will help with business transactions, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and acquisitions of property. Our firm goes even further to make sure you are comfortable with and understand the business process. We will keep in touch with you and are available for consultation, or just to "listen" to your problems, at any time.
