Starting a Business
Starting a business can be a life-changing decision. You’ll have a million details to figure out, and a million decisions to make. But underpinning it all, you want to have your company built on a solid foundation.
We can help. Jack Turner is an experienced veteran in business formations, having many years of experience in LLCs, S Corps, C Corps, and nonprofits. He can help you create and file all the documents you’ll need to get off the ground, as well as help you understand any ongoing legal requirements once you’re in business.
We offer several business formation packages. You can opt for the one-time deal, where we’ll sit down with you, discuss options, draw up your documents, and help you file.
Or you may choose our “Entrepreneur Level” package, where a monthly fee will get you not only start-up documents, but also ongoing consultation, standard contracts, contract review, and, if the need should arise, a discount on future litigation and/or defense.
Finally, we have the “Executive Level” package, which offers all of the above plus added monthly consultation hours, occasional legal education seminars for you and/or your employees, the option to have us meet with your board, and other legal services.
If none of the above options is exactly what you’re looking for, let’s talk about it; we’ll negotiate and find a solution that meets your needs.
Even startups and the smallest businesses need an experienced business contract attorney to protect their financial interests.
The best time to consult us is at the very beginning stages. We’ll help you choose the smartest way to structure your business, whether as a sole proprietorship, a limited liability partnership or company, or a corporation.
We also help negotiate leases for commercial space which are usually drafted to benefit the landlord. Because they look like a template or standard form, you may think they’re not negotiable, but we have modified many leases to include tenant provisions that benefit you.
When buying or selling a business we can assist with:
- buy/sell agreements
- employee contracts
- independent contractors
- equity compensation
- equipment financing and leasing
- protecting intellectual property
- business loan defaults
- business bankruptcy
- severance agreements
- non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements
By setting up your business properly from the start, we can help you avoid many headaches in the future. Count on our team of business law attorneys to guide you through every step of the process.
