Helping Ohio Startups Establish Business Operations

In almost all cases, there is only one type of business entity that is right for your company. However, it may take some work to figure out what entity that is. When deciding between a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation or LLC, there are five key factors to consider:

  • Risk to your personal assets
  • Costs associated with maintaining the business entity
  • Ability to offer an ownership stake to employees
  • Attractiveness for investors
  • Tax implications

We will work with you to determine the implications of each of these factors as they relate to your specific business. Once you decide which entity is the right one for you, we will help you file all appropriate paperwork.

Advising Companies On Day-To-Day Operations

With the predictable changes in law and the business environment, it’s important for companies to have a law firm that can help ensure that they are in compliance with shifting laws and regulations. We advise Ohio businesses on establishing and maintaining business operations, including the creation and assessment of all types of agreements and contracts.

We can draft and evaluate contracts and agreements, including:

  • Lease agreements
  • Real estate contracts
  • Construction contracts
  • Employment contracts
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Noncompete agreements

If your business is in need of a legal adviser, we can work with you on an as-needed basis or in an of-counsel role.

Fred was extremely helpful with business issues I was dealing with. He is not only efficient and effective at what he does, but a true counselor. He comforted me along the way and delivered as necessary. The trust developed is what was so important to me.
