Start-Up Services

We provide exceptional legal counsel throughout the registration of your business with the appropriate federal and state agencies and the preparation of your company's internal organizational documents. Our guidance is based on your specific goals and risk tolerance.

It is imperative that you have prepared clear agreements with business partners that address how business and its affairs are managed, the allocation of profits, losses, and distribution of assets, among other important aspects to running your business.

 

Entities that do not have these internal operational agreements will default to the provisions of the jurisdiction that they are operating, which can lead to unexpected results while trying to grow your business.

 
Contract Services

Our transactional legal practice provides our clients with peace of mind when entering into agreements with their clients, vendors, business partners, and investors.

 

We review, prepare, and negotiate agreements to ensure our clients know their rights and liabilities under their agreements before, or after, the agreement has been signed. Our clients enjoy the peace of mind that their business agreements were prepared with their best interest in mind

 
Regulatory Compliance

Most businesses must comply with federal, state, or local occupation-specific licenses, permits, zoning clearances, and other authorizations to operate their businesses.

Failing to comply with the licensing and permitting requirements for the type of business you plan to start in your jurisdiction can result in additional fees, penalty payments, or operational restrictions until conditions specified by the regulating authority have been met. We ensure that our clients have obtained all the relevant permits and licenses to do business.

 
Mergers & Acquisitions

Whether it be a vertical or lateral merger or business acquisition, we will provide strategic guidance and legal counsel through the negotiation, document preparation, and ratification process.

 

We explain the key benefits and drawbacks of all three deal types (asset acquisitions, private stock acquisitions, and mergers) so you know that the agreement meets the goals and needs of your business.

 

Non-Profit Organizations

Not-for-profit organizations enjoy exemption from various taxes depending on the specific type of organization and the specific tax. Once you a non-profit is I.R.C. § 501(c)(3) compliant, donors can generally deduct donations made to the company from the donor’s income taxes.

 

We provide legal guidance on how to observe the required corporate formalities, as well as drafting the organization's by-laws and filing its articles of incorporation and non-profit application with the IRS.

Starting, running, and dissolving a non-profit company can be time-consuming and involves fairly lengthy applications and paperwork that often require operational and financial information, so hiring an attorney early can save you a lot of time and aggravation.
