Business Organization

We offer business organization for the individual who is interested in becoming their own entrepreneur. We assist you in setting up your business, advising on some strategic considerations, and will review contracts and other legal documents for you. Our first-hand experience allows us to share with our clients our personal experiences and opinions on what to do as well as what not to do.

Starting a business is an exciting - and intimidating - endeavor. Many of the decisions you make now will shape the course of your business down the road.

This early stage of the process involves laying a careful legal foundation for success. Among the many legal considerations you must address are:

  • Choosing the right business entity
  • Establishing a strong governance structure
  • Drafting thorough organizational documents (partnership agreements, operating agreements, bylaws and the like)
  • Anticipating potential problems and providing for contingencies
  • Limiting exposure to liability
  • Mitigating the risk of costly disputes
  • Navigating employment and labor law issues

At FFW we recognize the importance of proactive business planning, especially during these formative stages. Our law firm is well-equipped to address the legal considerations faced by fledgling enterprises.

Business Consultation

Establishing a successful business involves much more than filing paperwork. It requires carefully identifying your legal options, considering your goals, and weighing those goals against the costs and benefits of each option.

We take the time to understand our clients' business ventures. When you come to us for guidance, we will walk you through a strategic analysis for accomplishing your goals. We will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each type of organization - whether an LLC, closely held corporation, partnership, LLP or other organization. We will then help you select an entity that gives your business the stability and opportunity you are seeking.

In addition to selecting a legal structure, we can guide you through the earliest steps of business organization and development. We can help you secure funding, negotiate leases, establish contracts, select board members, draft employment policies and handle any disputes that arise. We can truly address all of the legal concerns you encounter when starting a business.

We advise and counsel clients on the preparation and negotiation of all types of commercial and business contracts. We handle these arrangements for businesses engaged in many types of activities.
