Brinkley Walser Stoner has an experienced team of business law attorneys to help business owners and managers make smart decisions based on current business law to build their companies. We represent businesses of all sizes, from small to large. Our attorneys advise clients on contract law, business disputes, collection law, business litigation, corporate documents, government regulations, business purchases or sales, mergers and acquisitions, franchise law, non-compete agreements, and employment law. Our business law attorneys partner with your business to meet all your legal needs today and as your business grows in the future.
Starting a New Business
If you are considering starting a new business, the structure you use to organize the business can have long-term implications on such things as taxes, filing requirements, and risk. If you understand the differences between setting up a sole proprietorship, a partnership, an LLC or a corporation, you can make the best choice based on your circumstances. It is much easier to set your business up properly at the beginning than to go back and change the structure later.
Legal Issues in an Existing Business
Even if you’ve been operating for some time, you may find you need a business law attorney to handle things like:
- Writing or reviewing contracts to protect your interests;
- Pursuing accounts receivable when clients refuse payment (collection law);
- Employment law matters, including development of non-compete or other employment agreements, wage and hour disputes, or discrimination cases;
- Mergers and acquisitions.
We often have clients come to us after getting in over their heads while running their business. We are here to help and counsel you on the legal aspects of operating a business. We recommend you speak to an attorney if you have any doubt at all to ensure your business is protected. Contact us at (336) 249-2101 or online.
