There is no routine process for everyone because each business has its own unique needs. Our law firm can help navigate the law to ensure that your business is formed in a way that maximizes its potential and limits liability.
We will prepare your Certificate of Formation or Articles of Incorporation. We follow all legal formalities and assist in filing it with the Secretary of State so that your business can begin operating without delay.
According to your business needs, we will draft your Bylaws or Operating agreement to guarantee that your business’ internal affairs are conducted the way you intended.
We will file your name with the Secretary of State for you to start your business. Additionally, our attorneys can help ensure that your chosen name does not conflict with any existing state or federal trademarks, as well as helping you register a state or federal trademark for your business.
Dyer & Mauro can assist in organizing your business structure in a way to help you maximize profits and minimize tax liability. Additionally, we can help educate your governing persons on common tax triggering events to help you avoid unnecessary tax liability in the future.
Forming a business is more than just filing the proper forms; it is making sure you are legally allowed to operate. We also help you research and confirm that the way and where you intend to conduct your business complies with all laws, ordinances, and standards of the area you will operate.
When you require a loan to start your new business, a financing agreement outlines the terms of the loan. We can either review the financing agreement provided by your lender so that you understand what you agree to, or we can assist in drafting a financing agreement.
A non-compete agreement ensures that a company can help protect its investment in its employees. A non-compete can help ensure that the time and effort you take to instill your employees with proprietary information cannot be turned around and used against your business.
There is a fine line between those that are and those that are not enforceable. Because of the requirements for an enforceable agreement, no form agreement will work for every situation.
We can help ensure that your non-compete agreement is enforceable and that your confidential information remains protected.
A nondisclosure agreement will prevent an employee or business associate from disclosing confidential information gained through the course of your business. While Trade Secrets may be appropriate for certain information, a nondisclosure agreement can help confidential information that may not qualify as a Trade Secret but is still important to your business.
While easier to enforce than a non-compete, a nondisclosure agreement must still be reasonable in scope to be enforceable. Our law firm can help ensure that your nondisclosure will be enforceable and your business will be protected.
Whether your business has run its course or you want to pursue other life paths, the dissolution of a business creates duties and obligations that can lead to liability for the business owners.
It is essential to ensure that you fulfill your obligations to your business, fellow owners, creditors, and the government in winding up your business. Failing to fulfill an obligation could leave you open to fines or lawsuits.
If you need assistance in making sure all steps have been taken for a proper dissolution, contact us, and we can assist you in closing your business.
