Negotiating Goods and Services Contracts

As a business owner, you’re selling goods or services to customers to make profits. However, you might also be buying supplies and services from vendors. In both situations, you’re entering into a contract with the other party to execute that transaction. Contracts for the sale of goods or services contain clauses that can help or hurt your business, so it is essential to go over these documents with a lawyer.

For example, a contract for the purchase of products may include a provision that requires your company to pay a set amount of liquidated damages to the other party if you breach the terms of the agreement. If the other party accuses you of breach of contract, your company could sustain severe profit losses. An experienced attorney can help minimize your risk by drafting and negotiating favorable business contracts.

Navigating Changes in the Organization

Over time, your company might undergo changes in management and grow in ways that can cause you to consider converting your organization from one entity to another. A competent lawyer can advise you on how to restructure your business to fit its changing needs. An attorney can also prepare and file the legal documents necessary to convert it into the desired legal entity.

Transferring Ownership

You might need to transfer ownership of your business to a specific person or group of people upon retirement, illness, or death. In cases like this, you’ll need a strong succession plan in place that details how the ownership interests will transfer.
Devising and executing these plans can get complicated, especially if you intend to divide equity between multiple people. A corporate law attorney can discuss the different options for legally transferring interests to another person and prepare a streamlined plan on your behalf.

Helping You Structure Your Business in Georgia

State law permits business owners to choose from various entities as a means of structuring their companies. These types of legal entities include:

  • Sole Proprietorships
  • Limited Partnerships (LP)
  • General Partnerships (GP)
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLC)
  • Limited Liability Limited Partnerships (LLP)
  • S Corporations
  • C Corporations
  • Close Corporations
  • Professional Corporations

Each legal entity provides owners with different levels of limited liability, tax burdens and benefits, and varying degrees of personal liability protection from debts. A skilled business attorney can explain the advantages and disadvantages of choosing one entity over another based on your specific circumstances. A legal professional can also draft the paperwork needed to form and organize your business.
