Forming a Business Entity?

One of the most important and prudent aspects of owning a business is to have competent, reliable legal services available to thwart off problems before they develop. Business law is a very specialized legal discipline that most attorneys do not attempt to practice because it requires not only considerable business knowledge but understanding how the laws and rules governing business practices and procedures operate. One of the most overlooked aspects of business start-ups, especially when partners are involved is creating durable operating agreements that define many aspects and responsibilities the entities will share. Having an agreement with a clear division of roles can address managing the day to day operations, create trust and avoid conflict down the road. Often times, business partners operate under the assumption that they will continue to communicate in an open and friendly environment and do not anticipate conflicts of opinions, how mistakes will be rectified or how to effectively navigate a growing business. Verbal agreements in most cases do not address these issues and having a tangible document from the start puts into clear perspective the issues and challenges owners might face. Most business partners start off with shared visions, but over time these can change causing what proves to become irreconcilable differences, disagreement, and hardship. Businesses oftentimes suffer at the hands of the very stewards whose sole responsibility is to promote growth and profit. At Heekin Litigation Group we believe in being proactive in all aspects of business formations. From entity selection to drafting partnerships, shareholder, membership agreements and operating contracts. We even have the experience to create employment and non-compete contracts and design employee handbooks that outline company rules and procedures.
