Business Formations & Contracts

Starting a business involves a variety of urgent legal and financial issues.  At the Law Offices of Black & Older, our business formation attorneys consult with tax experts, accountants, and insurance professionals to determine the most effective way for our clients to structure their business.

Establishing a consultative relationship, we explain tax issues, potential concerns regarding liability, and what should be included in your Articles of Incorporation.  We will advise and represent you at each stage in the process of forming your company.  As a full-service law firm, we’re also prepared to address zoning or land use issues, as well as advise you on how your business and your estate plan could financially impact each other.

Protecting Our Clients – Avoiding Mistakes

Many small businesses start out as either a family operation or partnership between friends. As a result, inventory, bank deposits, expense accounts, and other financial matters are often handled in an informal way, based on mutual trust. However, once your company is incorporated, legal liability for financial malfeasance or mismanagement could result in you being sued or prosecuted.

As your legal counsel, we carefully review Articles of Incorporation and Corporate By-Laws to ensure processes and procedures are in place to indemnify you and protect your company against the illegal or negligent actions of others.  We review contracts in the same way, determining when terms and conditions expose your business to vulnerabilities that could result in legal or financial trouble.
