Most business owners dream of one day selling their business and enjoying retirement. Other people choose to invest in a well-established business as opposed to creating a start-up. Additionally, it is exceedingly common for disparate businesses to merge. Whatever stage in the lifecycle of your career, we can help you secure your desired professional outcomes and do so in such a way that you get the best possible version of the deal. Don’t sign anything without consulting with an experienced business law attorney or you could face the financial repercussions for the rest of your life.
It goes without saying that business owners regularly become parties to legally binding contracts. When these contracts are ambiguous, incomplete or fail to comply with local, state and/or federal law, they can be expensive and time-consuming to address. The drafting of employment contracts, shareholders’ agreements, non-compete contracts, or intellectual property contracts is something best undertaken in partnership with a competent business lawyer.
It is an unsavory fact of life that some people or entities just don’t pay their bills. Not getting paid for services rendered or merchandise sold hurts your bottom line and creates a hassle that must be addressed. Beyond missing invoices, there are many situations in which you may need to file or defend a civil lawsuit throughout the course of doing business. Breaches of contract, unfulfilled services, partnership disagreements, and other common yet unpleasant business gaffes often result in litigation. If we are unable to resolve your problem through informal means, we will not shy away from representing you in court.
