Starting a business should be an exciting time. With the help of the right attorney, you can enjoy this time while knowing that the legal aspects are being taken care of for you by experienced advocate.
At Gentry Business Law Firm we understand the challenges facing new business owners; we are business owners herselves, so we are well-versed in the hurdles that must be overcome to establish a successful company. We workhard to help small business owners see and anticipate the legal pitfalls ahead. In addition, we can take on those pitfalls and ensure that the business overcomes them successfully. When the business is operational, our attorneys can also assist you with growth and development.
Forming And Growing Your Business With You
Our attorneys will take the time to discuss your goals and what you want to accomplish in the present day and in the long term. Our advice and proposed courses of action are offered after considering your current needs and looking forward to what may help the business develop in the future.
We will discuss the risks, tax benefits and liabilities of the relevant business entities. Depending on your specific business needs and goals, we will recommend the best option for you such as a:
- Limited liability company (LLC)
- Subchapter S or C corporation
- Sole proprietorship
- Limited liability partnership (LLP)
- General partnership
Once the business is formed, our lawyers can assist you with other aspects of business development such as drafting bylaws. Because small-business owners often fulfill multiple roles, hiring a lawyer to perform some of the duties can be quite useful. For example, we can handle employment law matters, trade secrets, intellectual property and contracts for you. As the business grows, we can help you expand, open new locations, purchase another business or merge with another business. Our attorneys can even help you sell or dissolve the business if you decide to do so.
