Business and Corporate

December 7, 2022

Business and Corporate Law focuses on aspects such as forming a company, shareholder rights, and basic commercial contracts.

Business and Corporate Law is regulated by both state and federal law. The federal law covers things such as stocks, investments, workplace safety (OSHA), and employment laws. State law adds additional regulations on top of the federal law.

It is important to note that each industry has its own unique business and corporate issues. For example, the business issues facing a pharmaceutical company is very different from the issues facing a pizza shop. When picking an attorney it is important to pick an attorney who has some familiarity with your industry.

Business and corporate attorneys can typically work on the following matters:

  • Advisory Agreements
  • Affiliate Agreement
  • Business Consultation
  • Business Licenses
  • Buyout Agreements
  • Bylaws
  • Corporate Disclosures
  • Corporate Formation
  • Corporate Restructuring
  • Delaware Incorporation
  • Founders Agreement
  • LLC
  • Loan Agreement
  • Non-Disclosure Agreement
  • Operating Agreement
  • Partnership Formation
  • Sales Agreement
