Small Business Startups

From the moment an entrepreneur decides to turn an idea into reality, until the day of the successful IPO, decisions are made that have enduring legal consequences on business startups. Most new business owners understand that experienced legal counsel for their business startup is essential in insuring the startup’s success. Not so many recognize the critical role an attorney can play in ongoing operations; structuring shareholder rights and responsibilities; recognizing when and how to obtain intellectual property protection; negotiating beneficial partnership and alliance relationships; identifying potential liabilities and hedging against them; managing employee benefits; and instituting dispute resolution procedures.
