Business Lawyer Arvada, CO
Karen Brady is a business lawyer Arvada CO recognizes as a valuable community member. Our law firm focuses on helping small businesses with their transactional legal needs at every stage of the life of a small business.
Some businesses need a business attorney just at the start, forming their entity and crafting the necessary agreements between the owners. For a business owner contemplating buying an existing business or plan on a business startup, our business lawyer can help understand the difference between a corporation and a limited liability company, an S corp or a partnership, and the consequences of choosing among them. Where there are multiple owners our services as business attorney can include designing and drafting the shareholders agreement or operating agreement so there is a clear understanding of what happens when an owner dies, retires, or wants to leave the small business.
Some of our clients don’t start out as business clients, having come to us for our estate planning expertise to complete their will or living trust. But they come to realize that they need the same services of a business lawyer Arvada CO businesses have used to help protect them with their rental property, vacation home, or inherited farmland.
When a small business owner is ready to sell their business or transfer it to their successors, they need a business lawyer to help with that. We can draft or review the sales agreement, craft a succession plan, and help you dissolve your corporation or limited liability company. When there is an amicable split between business owners, our business attorney can help with that as well.
In between the start and finish of business ownership, smart business owners know to consult an attorney in crafting or reviewing all contracts, including leases, vendor contracts, and customer agreements. A small business with employees also requires regular review of its practices and agreements. These regular legal needs are why we have our Business CARePlan to allow small businesses to know that their business lawyer will provide expected legal services for an annual cost, so there are no surprise legal fees. We call it being “on your side, but not on your payroll” and we know that this makes us a business lawyer Arvada CO businesses can count on.
While we don’t do litigation, if a small business ends up in a legal dispute we can help advise on an initial response and find appropriate litigation counsel, because we know not to dabble outside our area of legal expertise and stick to where we excel helping our clients with their legal transaction needs.
Our small business range from owners of rental properties to ice cream parlors. Some of our business clients are one man shops, while others may have multiple owners or dozens of employees.
Whatever the size or product, we offer an initial interview at no cost so that small businesses can come to understand why our law firm prides itself on being a business lawyer Arvada CO small businesses have come to know and trust.
