Our Business Law attorneys, Tom Vander Luitgaren and Eric Prime, are dedicated to helping business owners achieve their goals through providing sound legal advice and representation in areas such as:
Business Entity Formation
The formula for success of your future business is largely based on the proper choice of entity form and the composition of that business structure. Van Valer Law Firm is here to help guide you through the process of choosing the right ownership structure for your business, whether that be a nonprofit, LLP, LLC, incorporation, or sole proprietorship.
Our skilled team of attorneys can assist you with all facets of the incorporating process, such as initial organization meetings, articles of incorporation, bylaws, filings with the secretary of state, and opening minutes.
We support small business owners with many aspects of business operations, including drafting contracts and employment agreements, reviewing business forms and documents prior to signing, and providing a thorough legal review of non-compete agreements. We can review contract terms and conditions pertaining to financing, property conditions, and breach of contract.
Let us assist in the development or review of contracts and help you avoid unenforceable liens or remove unfair liens filed against you.
Our attorneys will ensure that you obtain the proper professional licenses and/or permits for the type of business you want to operate in order to maintain compliance with applicable laws and safeguard against costly litigation. We can also assist with the protection of your intellectual property by helping you register your trademark or service mark.
