Advice from our business attorneys

When starting a company, there are numerous issues to address, and if the proper steps are not taken, business owners can soon find themselves marooned on a treacherous legal island. Whether you are a small or larger business, we can help you navigate the process. Following are a few issues that can greatly affect new businesses:

Agreements with partners/co-founders. While handshake deals may be enforceable, anyone endeavoring to do business is wise to document all the details of partner and co-founder agreements. By doing so, you can avoid complex and lengthy disputes down the line.
Trademarks. Registering any business trademark is a matter that should be high on your list of priorities. Since domain name registration does not guarantee any legal rights to marks on the Internet, it is prudent to register trademarks federally to protect your rights.
Employee issues. One of the largest potential risks for any business lies in the area of employees. Both state and federal laws impose regulations, standards, protections, and restrictions regarding employees. We can help you avoid problems.
Contract liabilities. All contracts should be written in a manner that limits liabilities and protects your rights. Having an experienced contract attorney can literally save a business millions.
Our business law firm provides legal assistance throughout the business formation process
