Business formation is not, however, just about choosing an entity and registering with the secretary of state. Many entities require the drafting of articles of incorporation, bylaws, operating agreements and other documents that can have a significant impact going forward.

In addition to these formation documents, we assist new businesses with the drafting of key business contracts, including employment agreements and franchise agreements.

Making Sure Joint Venturers Are Personally Protected

If you are getting involved in a joint venture, it is particularly important to take steps to protect your personal assets and decide how the business or investments will be managed.

Our attorneys can counsel you on how best to pursue your personal goals through appropriate business entity selection and the drafting and negotiation of agreements between co-owners or investors, such as buy-sell or shareholder agreements.
