Dwight D. Eisenhower, a U.S. President, and businessman in his own right, once said: “The business of this country … is business.”

And you obviously agree, or you wouldn’t be seeking your own business incorporation, to further your family’s hopes for the future.

Starting and running a business is both exciting and terrifying.  There is a lot of bases to cover all the time but the reward that comes with being successful cannot be matched. We can help start you on the road to success with your small business incorporation plans, offering valuable input along the way in a number of vital areas, from contracts and capital to taxes and liabilities, registering, licensing, and permits.

When starting your own business, there is a lot to consider, many options to explore, many more decisions to make. You’ll appreciate how we can help. We’ve assisted with business formations and start-ups for many years.  In fact, our attorneys have all been in your shoes at one point as they each have successfully started and run their own businesses prior to beginning their practice of law.  They have each been where you are now and understand from a first hand point of view what you will need to start, operate, and grow your business.

We represent clients in all aspects of business law. Among the most obvious is the first step in the process—selecting the business entity under which you will operate. We provide advice and information on the benefits and disadvantages of doing business as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a corporation, or a limited liability corporation (LLC). Other legal issues that confront small business owners, are employment contracts and disputes, breach of contract disputes, business leases, purchase of real property, contract negotiations, and compliance with local law and local regulations.

We also draft contracts and leases for all kinds of business issues, such as commercial and residential leases, credit agreements and applications, no compete agreements, and employment agreements.

 

Buying or Selling

We represent clients in the sale or purchase of businesses too. These would include preparation of the Asset Purchase Agreement or Stock Sale Agreement and all related documents, such as drafting the promissory note, security agreement and Uniform Commercial Code filings.

Our attorneys also assist clients with collection of their Accounts Receivables or other debts due a client. This includes filing appropriate judgment liens or Mechanics’ and Materialmen’s Liens.

As you set out on your own with big plans for a small business incorporation, we want to be with you every step of the way. Our timely advice and attention to detail will make a difference.
