Business Law Services

With our attorneys on your side, you can address any current legal issues while ensuring that your business is prepared for future growth. We can serve as general counsel for your business, and we can assist with many different business law matters, including:

  • Business formation - By choosing the correct structure for your business, you can ensure that you and your business partners are protected from liability and determine the best way to address personal and corporate taxes. We can assist you in determining whether you should create a limited partnership, limited liability company (LLC), S-corporation, C-corporation, or another type of business entity. We can also ensure that your business is properly registered and meets all ongoing legal requirements for the type of entity you choose.
  • Contract review and disputes - The contractual agreements you make will provide you with protection from liability and ensure that all parties are properly compensated for products or services. We can review partnership agreements, vendor contracts, employment contracts, commercial leases, or other contracts to identify any potential legal issues and ensure that you understand how they will affect your business. We can also help resolve any contractual disputes or breach of contract claims in a way that protects your business from legal or financial harm.
  • Employment law - In addition to helping create valid, enforceable employment contracts, we can help your company put policies in place that protect you from liability while ensuring that your employees' needs are met. We also represent both employers and employees in employment matters such as human resources issues, personnel issues, and claims of discrimination or sexual harassment.
  • Litigation - We understand that it is often preferable to resolve business-related disputes outside of the courtroom using methods such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. However, when necessary, we are prepared to provide you with representation in court in the event you are sued or feel you have a case against another party. We will work to protect your business's interests and ensure that you are fully compensated for any financial harm done to your company. 

Business law attorneys help businesses address the various legal issues that they may encounter. This includes making sure the business is structured properly, determining the most beneficial tax strategies, drafting and negotiating contracts, and ensuring that the right employee policies are in place. Business lawyers can also provide legal representation in disputes with other people or businesses and help determine the best ways to resolve these matters effectively while protecting a business’s financial interests.

By working with a business law attorney, you can not only address any legal issues that may arise while doing business, but you can create a successful business strategy that will help you achieve your goals. A lawyer can ensure that all procedures are followed correctly when establishing a structure for your business, review your contracts to identify any potential loopholes or areas of concern, address employment matters, and help protect a business from liability.

The ideal structure for your business will depend on the way the company will be organized and managed, whether you need to protect owners or partners from liability, the most beneficial tax strategies, and your plans for financing and capitalization, such as selling stock or ownership shares to investors. Depending on the unique needs of your business, you may choose to structure it as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a corporation, or an LLC.

In some cases, agreements between your business and other people or organizations may be somewhat informal. While written agreements, forms downloaded from online sources, or even verbal agreements may be sufficient in some cases, these agreements may not always be enforceable if disputes should arise. By working with an attorney, you can ensure that your contracts contain terms that will protect your rights, and you can be sure that you will know how to proceed if you need to take action to enforce a contract’s terms.

If your business becomes involved in a legal dispute with another person or organization, you may need to resolve these matters in court through litigation. However, the litigation process can be costly and time-consuming, and you may be able to use alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve these disputes more quickly and efficiently. In some cases, you may be able to negotiate a settlement or use mediation or arbitration to address matters without the need to enter the courtroom.

The legal fees for business law services will often depend on the amount of time and work needed to address certain issues. In some cases, flat fees may apply to certain services, while in others, an attorney will charge an hourly rate for the amount of time worked on a case. Typically, more complex cases, such as those involving business litigation, will result in higher fees. Our firm offers free consultations, and we will explain the fees we charge and the amount you can expect to pay for certain services..
