Our business attorneys have years of experience in various industries and can assist you with the business services below:
Setting up a business? The most common business entities include limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships. Our attorneys will guide you in creating the entity that works best for you.
The type of legal entity you form can impact the way your business operates every day. While many entrepreneurs choose to run their companies as sole proprietorships or general partnerships, other legal entities may offer you more benefits and protections.
Forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) offers business owners a level of protection for their personal assets if the company, business partners, or employees face a lawsuit. LLCs are pass-through companies, meaning the owners pay taxes, but the companies do not. Additionally, Limited Liability Companies don’t require you to implement job titles. This is the preferred structure for many small businesses.
Just because you have an LLC doesn’t mean you’re immune from disputes. If you don’t set a written agreement detailing how the company will be run, you could still run into issues with your employees and customers. An operating agreement is a document that details how the company will be managed, how profits and losses will be distributed, how members will handle buyouts, and how the business will be dissolved.
Corporations are generally thought to be a suitable structure for large companies, but smaller businesses can also incorporate them. If your corporation goes public, any number of investors can buy and sell the company stock through markets such as Nasdaq or The New York Stock Exchange.
Corporations have a set structure in which shareholders have a say in how the company is run. With this type of legal entity, it is essential to keep detailed records. Because corporate law can change frequently, it is best to have an attorney in Atlanta who can stay up to date on these regulations and ensure your business remains in compliance.
Unfortunately, sometimes businesses do not work out and need formal closure within the state. Our attorneys will guide you through the “winding up” process and ensure compliance with all laws regarding dissolution.
Our attorneys are knowledgeable in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts in various industries, ranging from employment agreements, asset purchase agreements, privacy policies, and others.
Our attorneys assist employers and employees by guiding them through complex transactional matters, such as employment contracts and negotiating severance packages.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our attorneys guide clients through the requirements for properly handling personal data as defined in the law, and guide businesses on legal obligations that limit how personal data can be used or stored.
Our attorneys have a wide array of knowledge on intellectual property and can assist you to register your intellectual property or defend against third parties who are infringing upon such intellectual property.
Are you looking to acquire another business entity or sell your own business entity? Let our Mergers and Acquisitions attorneys assist you through these complex transactions to ensure that all legal requirements are complied with and that your best interests are protected.
A release of liability is a legal document that indemnifies an individual or business entity from legal and/or financial responsibility. Our attorneys will ensure that the release contains proper language, is compliant with the laws, and is fair to both parties.
If any of the above service areas apply to you, please contact us today to see how our Atlanta business attorneys can help you and/or your business. With years of experience assisting business owners and individuals, we can help you to ensure that your best interests are looked after, no matter which complex legal transactions you are facing, while also helping you achieve success with your business.
