Legal Matters for Business

Business Formation

Once you have made the decision to go into business, either by yourself or with others, you will need to decide what form of business is best for you.  While you may not be thinking about potential liability issues, the form and structure of the business you choose is vital to the protection of your personal assets should something happen.  Is a corporation, a limited liability company, a general or limited partnership, or sole proprietorship best for you?  We will work with you and your tax advisor to determine what form is best, and prepare all necessary documents and filings necessary to complete the process and get your business up and running.

Business Disputes

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is particularly applicable to your business.  Here at KENT LAW, we will consult with you when you have business matters that cause you concern about potential problems, or even if you are uncertain whether or not a problem might arise.  We will review your contract and leases to optimize your protection, and draft contracts, notes, and other documents necessary for your peace of mind and protection. 

Oftentimes, no matter how much “prevention” you implement, an unavoidable problem arises.  Should a dispute arise, whether with a vendor, customer, insurance company, or a third party, we have the experience to represent you, through negotiation and even litigation, so that you can go about running your business.

Dissolution of Business

Should you wish to dissolve your business, whether voluntarily or otherwise, we have the knowledge and experience you need to make sure that the dissolution is completed properly.  From preparation of closing documents to litigation if necessary, we will work with you and your tax professionals to make sure you are protected.
