A business law attorney from Springer & Lyle can be strongly recommended under any number of circumstances. Here are a few examples of very serious legal issues that might be avoided with an experienced business law attorney from Springer & Lyle.
First, you’ll want to obtain any necessary permits and file and register the legally required documents necessary to start your business. This doesn’t necessarily require an attorney, but when you’re ready to start, necessary documents might not be in order or acceptable. You’re then back at square one. With the help of an experienced business law attorney, all necessary documents, permits and the like will be in order so that you can begin doing business on your intended date.
Contracts with customers, vendors, employees or investors are quite sophisticated and require the knowledge and experience of a business law attorney. For example, should a non-competition agreement be too broad in scope, geography or duration, it could be held to be an unfair restraint of trade and unenforceable. The sale of goods and secured transactions are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code. Your business law attorney will have training and experience in this area of business law. If your business isn’t a sole proprietorship, you’ll need a buy-sell agreement in place should a co-owner die or wish to sell or otherwise transfer their interest in the business. Should the business be merged with another business or sold, a business attorney will be needed for preparation of all documents, governmental compliance and closing.
Most businesses inevitably become involved in litigation in one form or another. These might be lawsuits by customers, creditors, present or former employees claiming harassment or discrimination, or an enforcement action by a governmental entity. An attorney experienced in both business and courtrooms will be needed in these scenarios. The attorneys at Springer & Lyle have the necessary experience and trial skills to undertake the representation of companies in complex business litigation. Whether you’re in the embryonic stage and just starting up, or have an established business that’s going to be involved in litigation, don’t hesitate to contact Springer & Lyle for aggressive, professional and quality representation.
