Owning your own business can be rewarding, but it is also full of challenges. At The Beck Law Firm, LLC, we work with business leaders to help them go into business and stay there, and handle the business and legal challenges that they may face along the way.
Among other things, we assist businesses with:
Business Formation – We can assist you in selecting the right business type for your new business (such as a partnership, corporation, or LLC) and then prepare and file the necessary documents to establish the business. If you and another person(s) will be starting or continuing in a business, we can advise you in ways to find and implement methods to solve disputes and issues that may occur later, including the use of carefully crafted operating agreements or corporate bylaws.
Members’ or Shareholders’ Agreements, including Buy-Sell Agreements – We work with companies owned by more than one person to help them implement a shareholder or member agreement, including buy-sell agreements that provide for what happens in the event of a dispute among the owners, including the death or disability of an owner.
Corporate Records – We can assist you with maintenance of your corporate records, including annual meeting minutes and Board of Directors meeting minutes and resolutions.
Ongoing Operations – We can offer counsel to you on the day-to-day legal needs of a business, including matters such as contracts for customers or vendors, review of other contracts and leases, drafting confidentiality agreements and non-solicitation or non-compete agreements, policies and procedures, and employment matters.
Buying or Selling a Business – when it is time to grow by buying a business, or the assets of one, we can help in that regard, and work to ensure a smooth transaction. Likewise, when it is time to exit and sell your business or its assets, we can work with you to help you accomplish your business goals and get the deal done in an efficient manner.
Commercial Litigation – Despite best efforts to prevent disagreements with clients, vendors, staff and others, some times disputes arise. The attorneys at The Beck Law Firm, LLC represent businesses in commercial litigation matters in both court and in arbitration.
If you or your business has a need for legal assistance, we invite you to contact us to see if we might be able to be of assistance to you.
