Starting a business is an exciting prospect.

Forming a corporation or LLC can be an important tool in making sure that you, your family, and your investments are protected from some liability.

Business Contracts and Transactions

Business Contracts and Transactions

A sound legal contract can save you time and money and reduce stress. It is important that you work with a law firm that thoroughly understands business contracts and transactions. Contracts exist so that everyone is clear on what each party’s rights, responsibilities and expectations are in a business transaction. The idea is to make sure that as many contingencies as possible are covered. Hiring a lawyer to draft your contract now will pay off later in the time you will not spend dealing with lawsuits and the attorney fees that go with them. more about Business Contracts and Transactions…

Mergers Acquisitions and Divestitures

Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures

The terms mergers and acquisitions are commonly used in business discussions to refer to a number of things, from your business being sold to another business entirely; to an employee stock option plan (ESOP) being put into place; to a recapitalization; to combining two businesses into one. An attorney can be an integral part of your merger team. One who is well versed in mergers and acquisitions can help introduce you to other team members, such as investors and lenders.  more about Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures…

Business Litigation Attorney

Business Litigation

When you are in business, it is entirely likely you will at some point face litigation. This could appear in the form of product liability or premises liability, or result from your discharge of an employee (i.e., wrongful termination, retaliation, or harassment). It is important to have an attorney on hand when you encounter situations such as these. However, it is also a good idea to speak with an attorney before these problems arise, to discuss how you might avoid common “litigation traps.”  more about Business Litigation…

Business Ownership Issues or Disputes

One of the most difficult parts of owning a business is getting involved in a dispute with another one of the owners of the company. Disputes between the ownership of a business may occur for a variety of reasons. Nearly all result from poor planning in the business structure. Sometimes, owners are able to resolve a dispute on their own. Sometimes, a mediator is called in to work through the problem so the parties can continue to move forward in the business. Sometimes, the issues can only be resolved in court.  more about Business Ownership Issues or Disputes…

Corporate Finance and Securities

Many businesses raise capital through the issuance of stock or shares in the company. The capital raised in this manner can help a business gather enough funds to purchase a location or begin manufacturing a product. Company stock is typically considered a security and as such is heavily regulated in the United States. It is always advisable to seek the advice of an attorney to help you avoid the problems that may occur if shares are issued improperly.  more about Corporate Finance and Securities…

Civil Litigation lawyer

Civil Litigation Law

In a civil case, the remedies are financial (or, possibly, orders to do or not do something.) A civil case begins with the filing of a Complaint, which lists what the plaintiff believes the defendant has done to wrong them. At that point, the defendant should retain a lawyer and answer the Complaint. There are specific timelines which must be observed for filing an answer – usually within 30 days. If the Complaint is not answered timely, then the defendant may lose his or her right to defend the suit.  more about Civil Litigation Law…
