                Business Law

I routinely represent business owners and individuals who are involved in business transactions, including the purchase of a business, sale of a business, or general business matters including contracts for potential customers, collection of debts, and general business advice.

I can assist you with achieving your business objectives, whether that includes reviewing contracts, drafting contracts, formation of corporations, or formation of limited liability companies, and just general business transaction legal representation and business advice.

Formation of Corporations and Formation of Limited Liability Companies.

If you are a small business owner and you have not created a corporation or a limited liability company ("LLC"), you may most likely be operating a sole proprietorship.  If someone sues your company for a claim of civil liability, your personal assets may also be at risk and subject to forfeiture by judgment creditors.  Placing your company in the form of a corporation or a limited liability company can help protect your personal assets from judgment creditors by separating the personal assets from the business assets.  Contact me to discuss how forming a corporation or a limited liability company can protect your assets.  I usually charge a flat fee for drafting documents to form a corporation or a limited liability company.
