What we do: Business Law

What is business law?

Business law deals with the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as existing businesses interact with the public, other companies, and the government. This area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including:

  • Tax law
  • Intellectual property
  • Real estate
  • Sales
  • Employment law
  • Bankruptcy

Business law attorneys specialize in transactional work, meaning they often do not represent clients in court.

What can a business lawyer do for you?

The services of a business lawyer are critical to a business. Small businesses, in particular, can benefit, but virtually every business can utilize at least a few of the many things a business lawyer is capable of helping you with. A major misconception with business lawyers is that they are only needed when a business owner is involved with a business dispute. In fact, business lawyers can play a critical role in the formation of a business, the sale of a business and everything in between. Their role is to help protect all parties involved in various business transactions to stop disputes before they start.

Other services provided can include:
  • Explain the rights and responsi­bilities to business persons converting a business to a partnership, a corporation, a limited liability corporation or some other business formation
  • Assist in leasing operating space
  • Obtain operating capital
  • Consulting services
  • Navigate the complex city and county compliance codes
  • Depending on the type of business, there may be state licenses required that a lawyer can help you obtain
  • Businesses also require a wide range of contracts with vendors, clients, employees, government agencies and others. A good business lawyer will work to protect your personal and business interests and help develop appropriate documentation
  • In the event of a business dispute, a business lawyer can help protect clients as individuals and business entities. This may be due to a breach in contract, debt collection, or some other business dispute.
