The attorneys at Thurman & Flanagin help clients with every aspect of business law including:
Most smaller businesses choose to operate within a recognized business entity. Some common business entities include:
Limited Liability Company (LLC)
Family Limited Partnership
Using a recognized business entity minimizes your personal liability and gains you workplace autonomy as well as business credibility. This can also ease the burden of taxation and asset protection. Selecting the business entity that is right for your company is a major step and this action should be well thought out as well as discussed with legal professionals.
Forming an LLC can be a complicated process without the help of a legal professional. Consulting a business attorney is imperative to receiving the maximum liability shield, tax benefits, and business efficiencies for your company. The benefits of operating a business through an LLC include minimizing personal liability, some anonymity, greater asset protection, and business credibility.
Thurman & Flanagin will represent both individual employees or companies in non-compete law. A non-compete agreement is a contract between an employee and an employer in which the employee agrees to not enter into markets or professions considered to be in direct competition with the employer. These legal contracts prevent employees from competing with the employer during or after employment.
A detailed ownership agreement for a corporation, partnership, or limited liability will help clear up ownership expectations. The most common agreements are corporation shareholder agreements, limited liability company member agreements, and partnership agreements. Having legal ownership agreements lowers the risk of ownership disputes and keeps a clear structure for how the company operates.
