Small Business

Small business owners have a number of legal matters that must be addressed when forming a business, including licensing, drafting and executing agreements, documenting transactions, resolving disputes and creating business entities to conduct business.  Often, there are laws, restrictions and obscure codes that small business owners are unaware of and applicable legal restrictions that should be addressed.

At Goldman & Schapiro, we can discern the most favorable structure for a new business, such as an LLC, a Partnership, or an S corporation.  Our business attorneys will guide the small business owner through the complicated - often tricky - legal challenges and risks related to the formation and proper management of their small business.  More specifically, small business owners may need legal counseling with the following: 

  • Licensing
  • Intellectual Property
  • Contracts and Transactions
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Dissolutions
  • Litigation
  • Franchising
  • Employee and Independent Contractor Relations and Related Agreements
  • Lease and Personal Guaranty
  • International Law
  • Regulatory Compliance

Your legal needs do not end when you open the doors of your business.  Many of our clients rely on us for ongoing legal advice to shield them from potential litigation brought by customers, employees, partners and investors and to act as outside corporate counsel.  Our lawyers will draft and review employment agreements, non-compete agreements, franchise agreements and much more.  Our Firm understands the challenges of running a small business.  We provide both practical and legal advice based on our knowledge and experience in business law.
