Business Formation

Selecting the appropriate structure and correctly forming your entity is a fundamental step in creating a successful business. Each form of business carries implications for owner liability, tax treatment, management and control, and other important issues. I can help you with this setup process, including steps such as:

  • Advising on entity selection and structure
  • Filing Articles of Incorporation
  • Obtaining necessary licenses
  • Drafting organizational agreements

This is not a comprehensive list of the ways I can help you, so if you need something I don’t cover here, please reach out and I’ll be happy to discuss and assist with your particular needs.

Contract Review and Drafting

If you have existing contracts to be reviewed, written by another party, it is likely the terms will favor the party who drafted the document. I can help protect your interests through careful review of your contracts. I can also assist in negotiating new contracts or changes to existing agreements with employers/employees, contractors, vendors, and others to ensure your business has the proper legal documents in place to run smoothly, including:

  • Business Organizational Agreements (LLC Agreements, Partnership Agreements, Shareholder Agreements)
  • Services Agreements
  • Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Noncompete Agreements
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Employment agreements

This is not a comprehensive list of the ways I can help you, so if you need something I don’t cover here, please reach out and I’ll be happy to discuss and assist with your particular needs.

Corporate Maintenance

Once your business is up and running, there are a variety of compliance and record keeping requirements you will need to follow depending on the nature of your business. While perhaps not exciting to most, these matters are important for keeping your business in good standing and preserving the personal liability shield. I will handle the minutiae of things like annual reports, state filing fees, corporate resolutions,license renewals, and more, allowing you to focus on what you do best – expand and improve your business.
