In business transactions, the details are important. Businesses, whether small or large, are complex entities, and many different types of legal issues may arise. Whether you are forming or dissolving a business, involved in litigation, or simply have a question about the day-to-day running of your business, an attorney can provide valuable advice.
Formation and Dissolution
When you are forming a business, whether it is a partnership, a limited liability company, a corporation, or another business entity, you must make sure to comply with Indiana law. A lawyer can help you make sure you have completed the necessary steps for formation so that you have a valid business entity. An attorney can also work with you to draft governing documents, ensuring that your business is run the way you want it. If you want to dissolve a business entity, a lawyer can take you through the process and make sure that no further legal issues arise after dissolution is complete.
Running the Business
Running a business requires more than hard work. Business owners also have to understand Indiana law so that their actions are legally effective. Business law is a complex area, but an attorney can help. Attorneys can advise you on the legal ramifications of your business decisions, such as with employment law or copyright and trademark law. An attorney can also represent you in transactions, draft contracts, and review documents to be signed. A complete and well-considered business plan can protect you from disputes and lawsuits.
Litigation and Other Matters
But if a dispute does occur, it is important to have experienced representation. An attorney can advocate for your interests, greatly increasing the likelihood that disputes and lawsuits will be resolved in your favor. Lawyers can also help you ensure that you are following state and federal law, and can work to prevent lawsuits from happening.
A lawyer can advise you in business issues including:
- Partnership disputes;
- Shareholder disputes;
- Litigation, mediation, and informal settlement agreements;
- Buying or selling business interests;
- Leasing office space;
