Business Law

How can an attorney help me with my small business?

An attorney can assist with a broad range of legal services representing business enterprises of all sizes and those who create them. Legal advice is often required on a variety of topics, including the choice of business entity, process of formation, type of governance, nature of ownership, operational matters, combinations, acquisitions, dispositions and dissolutions of such entities. In addition to assisting with immediate concerns, a lawyer can help with interests relative to ownership and the passing of ownership to future generations or for the eventual sale of the business.

An attorney can also help you with relationships between your business and other organizations. This includes contracts, both drafting and negotiation, as well as joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions.
