Creating Your Business
Whether you are starting a small business or creating a large partnership, you can benefit from the assistance of an experienced business law attorney. Starting a business does require filing paperwork with a state agency. The specific documents required depend on the type and structure of your business. Beyond preparing sometimes complex paperwork, there are many other considerations to take into account when creating your new business. Are you going to need a partnership agreement? Will you need employment agreements, such as non-disclosure or non-compete covenants? Does your business require any bylaws or other operating agreements? Your attorney can help you answer these questions, and draft the necessary documents for your new business to move forward.
Business Law and Disputes
It is almost inevitable that any business will face some dispute during its operation. Whether it is a contract dispute with a vendor or client, an employee matter, or an insurance claim, a dispute can cost you both time and money. So, it is important to hire a business lawyer who can handle your case efficiently while resolving the legal problem. In some cases, your dispute may even require litigation. Whether you initiate a lawsuit, or find yourself defending the business in a claim, your attorney can represent your business throughout the litigation process. With the help of a skilled lawyer, you will be able to refocus on running your business.
Some common types of business dispute you might face are employment-related matters, such as:
- Sexual harassment;
- Wrongful termination; or
- Wage and hour disputes.
Employment law is a particularly complex legal area. Your rights and responsibilities as an employer may depend on your business structure and size.
