Set Yourself Up For Success

Business law goes far beyond a lone statute, regulation or act, scattered legal frameworks and diverse regulations that can make setting up a business a challenge. Instead, it runs the gamut of topics and legislative frameworks to include everything from zoning and land usage to consumer protections and fiduciary duties. Keys to success for your company may include:

  • Choosing whether to form a limited liability company, partnership, trust or corporation
  • Drafting business formation agreements and filing for permission to operate as an in-state or foreign entity
  • Planning successor arrangements to keep your company running when you're no longer able to lead it
  • Resolving labor and employment disputes
  • Drafting shareholder agreements
  • Addressing breach of contract situations
  • Dissolving a business and resolving your remaining obligations
