From our Business Entity Maintenance Package to our full array of business document and business policy creation, The Law Office of John Owens can help create a work environment that leads to business success. Business Formation Once we know where you want your business to go and how you need to get there, the business formation documents can be drafted. If you are starting a business, it is important to have a lawyer familiar with the complexities of business formations at your side during this crucial step. If these documents are not carefully drafted, your business debts could become your personal debts, and you may lose control over the business you worked so hard to create. We can draft and file business formation documents for a variety of business organizations:
- Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
- Corporations (S-Corp or C-Corp)
- Limited partnerships
- Family limited partnerships
- Family LLCs
Buying or Selling a Business
We can assist you with the negotiations and the drafting of all necessary legal documents when you are purchasing an existing business. We also help you establish your business as a viable entity that can be sold.
While you may not envision leaving your business any time soon, it is important to you, your business partners, and your family that you have such a plan. Without developing a sound exit strategy your business and the people around it may suffer.
We provide consultation and development services on:
- Buy-sell agreements
- Redemption plans
- Cross purchase plans
Contracts & Policies
Having contracts that are clear to you, to employees, and to clients, allows you to spend your time running your business. They also help to prevent litigation, because we can draft contracts specifically tailored to your needs:
- Employment contracts
- Non-compete agreement
- Nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements
The primary goal of our business law practice is to help clients understand how the law affects them, so that they can make informed decisions. Knowing the rules is one of the best ways to prevent legal problems. We can help guide you through business decisions and policy/process evolutions as your business grows and your business needs change.
