In the age of automated and digital production, business owners have legal needs that can often be fulfilled using online systems. Sometimes partners in a small business need a basic operating agreement or a buy-sell agreement for their company. Maybe they need an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for an idea they want to discuss or a non-compete agreement for an employee.
This section of the website allows you to form your business and order basic business agreements, at discounted rates. All agreements contain standard provisions. Additional charges may result in the charging of additional fees. All documents are provided, with signing instructions in Microsoft Word format. You can email questions to moc.walrekahnieb%40ofni or request a free 20-minute phone consult using the link on the menu bar.
You may be running a start-up business, perhaps a technology company or a non-tech business, and you need legal services for your company. You’ll need to form the company, create an operating agreement or by-laws and create other documents for the business. You’ll also need advice and guidance as you deal with other businesses, service providers, employees, etc…
Creating an “estate” plan, whether just a simple will or a complex plan with more involved strategies is something that everyone who owns the property and cares for others has to do at some point. And, given the uncertainty of death and injury in life, your plan should be created sooner than later. With a plan in place, the probate process becomes much easier for survivors and loved ones.
When it comes to advanced tax strategies, it is important that you hire advisors who are familiar with these concepts which involve adhering to special rules & regulations published by the IRS. We work with many experts throughout the country who specialize in these techniques.
Unlike residential real estate, purchasing or selling commercial property involves more complicated contracts, significant due diligence, potential environmental issues, bulk sale filing requirements, and the like. It is not the kind of transaction that could, as many home purchasers are doing, be handled by a title company and their closing people.
As a small business owner, it is important that you work with advisors who not only bring knowledge and expertise to help you with things but have a relatively intimate knowledge of you and your company.

Most small business owners cannot afford (nor does it make financial sense) to hire their own general counsel, devoted exclusively to their company. But legal issues come up fairly regularly and advice about the law is always needed. Hiring attorneys on an “ad hoc” basis does not allow counsel to have a real understanding of the structure of your company, history of dealings, agreements in place, employees, etc… And it always costs more (and sometimes gets you worse results) for the ad hoc lawyer to spend time going through your situation. The term “fractional” general counsel applies to a lawyer who, for a flat monthly fee, interacts and understands your business dealings on a regular basis. Generally, this results in less cost and minimizes any “emergency” legal issues.
