Whether it is your first business or your fifth, if you are building a new company partnering with Business Law Attorneys is a great way to start off on the right track. From helping you set up the right corporation and reviewing leases, employee contracts, and much more, the skilled team at Cobb Cole are an invaluable resource. They can help take the mystery out of legal language and protect your interests so that you can run your business without worrying about legal concerns.
Business Law Attorneys can help you in the following areas:
- Business – incorporation, copyright, trademarks
- Property – building leases or purchases, zoning
- Employee Issues – contracts, non-compete clauses, taxes
Type of Business
One of the most critical first steps in establishing a business is deciding what type of business structure is best – a partnership, limited liability corporation or a sole proprietorship are just some of the options. Cobb Cole can advise you on the format that will best serve your current and future business needs. They will also assist you in getting the proper permits and licensing, whether that is local, state, or federal. You may even find that a non-profit business status may be right for your main business or a side business. Legal knowledge can set you on the right path.
You may also need to protect your ideas with patents and your designs with copyright or trademarks, and your business lawyer can handle those issues too.
Property Leases and Contracts
While you may have handled property leases in the past, it is always good to have your attorney assist in the contract process. The Cobb Cole firm will draft the lease or if you already have one, they will review the contract before the signing. A single line about insurance coverage on a lease could make a million-dollar difference if there is a problem. The same review is also critical for purchase contracts as well. And then there are insurance contracts, financing, vendor agreements, and so much more to setting up a business. You can see why a qualified Business Law attorney is so important.
Having the right employment contracts is another crucial step for a successful business. A Business Law attorney can make sure that your interests are protected and that you are following the most current laws.
Have you considered nondisclosure and non-compete terms in employment contracts or work product agreements? It is likely that your business has unique information and methods that should be covered by these so that an employee can not take your techniques or ideas and set up their own shop. This is just one glimpse at the employee issues that need to be reviewed by your skilled Law Firm.
Your Business Attorney can also make sure that you have all your employee tax and insurance systems set up properly so that you are in compliance with those laws. You will also want language governing proper employee conduct and human resource issues. Because employment and other laws are constantly changing, it is important to work with a team that keeps up to date and will let you do the same.
