SMALL BUSINESS LAW PRACTICE - HELPING SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS AND BUSINESS START-UPS
Every small business owner needs an attorney that he or she can turn to for trusted advice and counsel. I am pleased to offer a wide range of legal services including business formation, both for profit and non-profit; corporate governance; contracts and agreements; and business and asset transfers.
Business Entity Selection and Formation - There are several different types of entities each of which have advantages and disadvantages. I will assist you in determining which entity best meets your needs and goals; file the appropriate certificates with the State; develop by-laws, operating agreements and business continuation plans; and help you with general annual corporate filings and other governance issues.
General Corporate Counsel Services - Once you have started your business, I will be available to draft employee handbooks and policy manuals, employment contracts and separation agreements. I will also negotiate and prepare leases and general business contracts necessary to the successful operation of your business. Additionally, I can connect you with a network of business professionals who can advise you on the financing, accounting and insurance needs of the small business.
Purchase and Sale of Small Businesses - If you decide to purchase an existing business or sell your own, I can provide guidance throughout the entire process: from evaluating the risks and benefits of buying or selling a business to drawing up the sales contract; from transferring of licenses through the final closing process.
