When you are starting a new business, you have a lot on your mind. You have to get your product or service ready for market, you have to find a market, deal with suppliers, hire employees, find office or retail space and keep track of thousands of details.
All that is more than enough for any one person to take on. But while you’re preparing to launch your business, it’s important to make sure your business is prepared for the next chapter. If you don’t have the legal elements of business formation together early on, you could be setting your business and yourself up for big trouble.
At Virtual General Counsel LLC, we help entrepreneurs, managers, small startups and mid-size businesses with a wide range of issues in business law and business formation. We help clients prepare their businesses for success by drafting LLC operating agreements, partnership agreements, articles of incorporation, shareholder agreements and more. We also help clients with employee contracts, incentive plans, stock options and more.
Once a client’s business is up and running, we provide general counsel services, providing guidance in day-to-day business and personnel matters, compliance issues and more. We also help with business contracts, mergers, sales and acquisitions, venture capital and other complex issues for established businesses.
You can’t start a new business without facing risk, and there are some risks you can’t control. However, best business practices demand managing risks where you can. An experienced business attorney can help you minimize the risks to your business and your personal assets.
