Corporate & Business Law

As a business owner or manager, you don’t want to spend your time trying to navigate the legal minefield.

The business world is fraught with legal traps and pitfalls. As a business owner or manager, you don’t want to spend your time trying to navigate the legal minefield. Your time is better spent making your company the most profitable it can be, both for you and your customers.

However, ignorance or confusion about legal issues can result in anxiety, potential liability, and unexpected costs and legal fees, all of which take their toll on your peace of mind, your business’ reputation and effectiveness, and your bottom line. Are you sure you have chosen the correct business entity form (i.e. corporation or LLC)? Have you taken the necessary legal steps to minimize your tax liabilities? Are you leveraging and protecting your company intellectual property assets to capitalize on their value, making your company more attractive to a potential purchaser? Are your employment contracts and service agreements protecting your business from potential disputes and competition? What if a dissatisfied customer or employee takes legal action against you? What would the impact be on your business if you had to defend a costly lawsuit? The consequences of not knowing that answer to any of the foregoing questions can stretch beyond lost revenue and cash flow to include lost time, energy, employees, customers, quality of life, and other resources which are better used to grow your business. Who do you turn to for help with these and any other legal questions? How can you avoid high and/or unexpected attorney fees from unanticipated legal issues?

Here are some better questions: What if you could partner with trusted legal counsel who takes the time to know the specific legal issues impacting your business, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that you have proactively protected your business from liabilities, and maximized your potential for profitability?
