One of the first and possibly most important decisions as a business owner you must make is what type of business entity to select for their venture. One primary benefit of starting a business as either a corporation or as a Limited Liability Company is that if done right and if you are guided correctly it could avoid you being personally responsible for any potential business risks and losses. In some ways, it’s the cheapest form of “insurance” you could have. If not done or carried through properly, however, you could be lulled into a false sense of security. Let us help you properly form your business to get you the greatest continued protection that the law allows.
Helping with NDAs, Employment Contracts, Business Agreements, and More
Every business transaction from a verbal agreement to purchase to an employer’s dealings with its employees has the potential to result in serious legal and financial consequence if not handled properly.
Just as you go to a doctor each year for a physical, or bring your car in for a tune-up, we recommend that you visit us for a FREE 30-minute consultation so that we can so that we can review your form agreements and give you concrete suggestions that will ensure your agreements contain the proper protective language. We continue to assist with our clients’ business needs as they grow and evolve. Typically, as our clients’ business grow, their employment human resource needs increase and require employment agreements, employee handbooks and anti-discrimination training to avoid costly issues down the road. We can assist you every step of the way in dealing with your employees.
Two important kinds of contracts common for businesses are nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) and employment agreements. When you have a brilliant idea for a product or formula that fuels your business, it is only natural that you want to keep that information confidential. However, it is often necessary to employ the help of technicians and other individuals in order to bring the idea to fruition. Having people sign NDAs can help ensure that they will not disclose confidential information about your business – at least, not without legal consequences. In addition, you may want to have your employees sign contracts regarding their salary, benefits, responsibilities, and other terms of the employment relationship. To avoid liability, you should always have an attorney help you develop these contracts.
Other examples of important business agreements with which we can assist you, include:
- Partnership and founders’ agreements
- Buy-sell agreements
- Sales contracts
- Service level contracts
- Stockholder agreements
