Business Planning

Owning and running a business can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life.  Thanks to ongoing regulatory changes and new court rulings, it has also become an increasingly complicated endeavor.  Don't be fooled by unprofessional companies without proper legal credentials who claim that they can give you adequate advice over the internet without even meeting with you!  You and your business deserve the advantages of the best in professional legal counsel.  This is what I provide.


Businesses, like individuals, can be at various stages of life and can require different types and levels of legal assistance.  Every business and business owner have unique issues that should not be addressed with a "one size fits all" so-called solution.  No matter what stage your business is in, I can provide you with comprehensive and custom tailored legal assistance. 


My services in this area include:

  • Advising a start-up business in the advantages and disadvantages of the different forms of conducting operations, such as a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company or corporation
  • Advising a start-up business in the various tax implications in the use of different types of entities
  • Advising a start-up business in the various liability aspects in the use of different types of entities
  • Assisting a start-up business in the actual formation of the chosen entity, such as partnership, corporation, limited liability company
  • Assisting a client with business succession matters and exit strategies (e.g., buy-sell agreement)
  • Assisting a client with the conversion from one type of business entity to another
  • Assisting a client with ongoing operational matters such as bylaw preparation, minute and resolution preparation (e.g., medical reimbursement plan)
  • Assisting a client with the preparation or review of various business contracts including leases, employment agreements and contracts with vendors, suppliers and customers
  • Assisting a client with keeping relevant governmental registrations current
