Things we can do for you

YOU DON’T RUN YOUR BUSINESS AS A COOKIE-CUTTER OPERATION, SO WHY USE COOKIE CUTTER LEGAL FORMS?

Too often small businesses run into legal trouble because they use the “do it yourself” legal method, thinking they are saving money by avoiding lawyers. Unfortunately, these “back of the napkin” agreements or internet form documents can lead to unnecessary and expensive litigation down the road, negating all of those up-front cost savings.  For a small investment of time and money up front, you can set your business on the right course legally and avoid time-consuming and costly disputes down the road. Some issues require only simple planning and documentation. Others require more complicated solutions. It takes experienced legal counsel to know the difference.

BUSINESS FORMATION

Whether you are a small start up trying to get your business off the ground, or an established business looking to move in new directions, taking the time to lay a proper legal foundation can avoid costly and time-consuming legal disputes in the future. Among the many issues to consider are proper corporate formation, preparation of partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements, lease agreement, terms and conditions for your customer and vendor agreements, and licensing requirements.

BUSINESS OPERATIONS

Once a business is up and running, ongoing operations and growth can lead to new and different legal considerations. As businesses add employees, new and updated employment agreements and noncompetition agreements may be needed. New employees may also be subject to minimum wage and overtime requirements. Perhaps the business needs new financing arrangements or wants to bring in new partners or shareholders. Or maybe the business has an opportunity to expand by purchasing another business. These and many other operational activities raise legal issues and requirements that, if unaddressed, can lead to significant and costly disputes. We can help you address these issues as they arise so your business can avoid potential problems down the road.

COMMERCIAL LITIGATION & ARBITRATION

Businesses large and small face many unforeseen legal challenges. Disgruntled employees try to take a company’s trade secrets and customers to a competitor. Business partners can’t agree on how to run the business. Landlord tenant disputes become intractable. Vendors, service providers and customers fail to deliver as promised. Businesses can also fall victim to fraud, misrepresentations, and breaches of fiduciary duty. All of these disputes can be difficult to resolve and may result in legal proceedings.

Whether you or your business have been sued or have a claim against someone else, the prospect of defending or bringing a lawsuit can be daunting. It is important that you hire an attorney who understands and can help you navigate the intricacies of the litigation process. We help small businesses resolve disputes through pre-suit dispute resolution, as well as by representing businesses and individuals in state and federal courts and arbitration proceedings, including before the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and the International Chamber of Commerce Court of Arbitration.

I’m so glad I called Lawerence when I did. My partner and I set up some preliminary terms as a precaution, and they ended up being very cost saving down the road when we started to disagree. I cannot stress enough what an asset he has been to my business.
