Business Law in Shaker Heights, OH
Business Law (this includes “Business Contracts & Business Formation”):
We at Calkins Law Firm have years of experience helping owners, in Shaker Heights, OH and elsewhere, set up businesses and write contracts. A well-written legally-binding agreement makes all the difference when it comes to risk mitigation. Most people resist hiring an attorney because they worry that doing so will cost them thousands of dollars—this is often not the case. Moreover, recycled and boilerplate contracts are dangerous, lead to a false sense of security, and, ultimately, can cost you much more than the initial expense of professional legal services.
Similarly, whether you are forming a sole proprietorship, limited partnership, corporation, or limited liability company, you will be requiring a business attorney to limit your liability and tax burden. If you are forming a new company or seeking funding, you are, for instance, probably asking questions to the tune of “What happens if…?” We offer counsel on essential matters related to controlling interests, tax implications, financial liabilities, the entity’s structure, future viability and flexibility, role assignments, and considerations of operation and administration. In the case that you are trying to raise venture, angel, or private equity capital, we can help you with all the legal procedures relevant to those efforts. When it comes to the success of your business, the lawyers at Calkins Law Firm, near Shaker Heights, OH, are ready to apply their decades of experience to your particular situation.
