Every entrepreneur getting ready to launch a new business asks themselves “do I need to hire attorney?” Many will follow that thought and call a few attorneys fishing for whatever free advice attorneys are willing to offer.

Drafting formation documents — Each type of business entity has different sets of formation documents that are standard to that business type. For an LLC, we advise having an operating agreement and a buy-sell agreement in place, at a minimum; while, a corporation will need to have corporate bylaws, consents and waivers, and stock purchase agreements, among others.
Ancillary documents — When starting a new business, entrepreneurs are usually meeting many new people and sharing with them detailed information about their new business, such as when trying to impress a possible investor, or interviewing a potential manager, or seeking a manufacturer for your new product. In these cases, it is important to have legal protections in place in such as Letters of intent (LOI), Non-disclosure Agreements (NDA), employment contracts, vendor agreements, and commercial lease contracts, to name a few.
