ENTREPRENEURS & BUSINESSES

Taking the next step in your business means planning ahead so nothing stunts your growth. Our team understands businesses because we are a business. We will work diligently with you to make sure you know how your business decisions and legal strategies impact you to you and your business.

What we do…

We advise businesses on the legal impact of day to day decision making and help business plan a bright and prosperous future.

The way we do it…

It is important for business owners to have an open line of communication with their professional service providers. That can get complicated when business owners are concerned about the end of the month bill that will come with advice. We work with our clients to create a budget or payment plans to pay for legal services. The goal is to be there for our clients when they need us and to eliminate the unpredictable costs typically connected to the attorney client relationship.

Contracts, Agreements, Loan Negotiations

Legal agreements can have a lasting impact on the success of your business. Whether you need to know the terms of your new business loan, crafting the right standard services contract for your customers or knowing what your rights are under a vendor’s contract, we will help you negotiate or draft contracts to meet your needs. We will help you decipher what you are signing up for when you are signing on the dotted line.

Here are a few of the types of agreements we have drafted for our own clients:
  • Consulting services contracts
  • Construction services contracts
  • Merchant services agreements
  • Master services agreements
  • Vendor contracts
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Product licensing agreements
  • Security agreements

Company founding, formation and owner agreements

It is important for small businesses or closely held companies to have the right agreements in place between owners and for single owner entities.
  • Multi-member LLC agreements
  • Single member LLC agreements to protect sole-owners from third party claims of ownership
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Dissolution agreements
  • Member or shareholder separation agreements
  • Asset sales and purchase agreements
  • Business sales and purchase agreements

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Perfect Match For Small Business And Creatives

I found Kim through a direct reference from a design colleague and would recommend her just as strongly to any other small business or creative mind. She’s very attentive to individual needs and is willing to think through fee structure and working relationship to suit the exact project needs. Her experience, interest and insights are strong, and if she doesn’t have the immediate answer to a unique question she knows exactly how to move the work forward to resolve and explore the issue. She’s always been readily available, completely open in communication, and timely. Kim’s personality is also down-to-earth, encouraging, calm and strong. These are all attributes that seem to perfectly resonate with the energy that a small business needs. I’d recommend her highly over and over again.
