We work with clients to determine which business type is the best fit for their business plans. We help them understand the associated liabilities for the type of business entity they select and find what works best for their specific business. We’ve worked with clients in these businesses:
- Healthcare professionals (physicians, dentists, nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), nurse practitioners (ARNPs), physical therapists, and physician assistants (PAs), and locum tenens professionals)
- Small business owners and franchisees
- Builders, contractors, small developers and subcontractors
- Professionals, including CPAs, engineers and landscape architects
- Landlords and tenants
- Real estate professionals
- Personal trainers and coaches
- Private Adjustors
- Independent contractors and consultants
- Medical practices (dentists, physicians, chiropractors, and podiatrists)
- Charitable foundations and not-for-profit organizations
Once you’ve decided what type of business best fits your situation, we can assist you with other aspects of your business, including contract review and contract preparation, property and equipment leases, financing arrangements and insurance. When time is of the essence, we can help.
We work with our clients as they bring employees onboard and help to protect their business interests. Occasionally, businesses have arrangements with independent contractors. Sometimes those arrangements are perfect; other times they’re problematic. We can discuss your options and the advantages of each situation.
After staffing, often your biggest expense is your lease. Before you sign a lease or rental agreement, you need to be familiar with the obligations that you and your landlord have. What happens if you need to expand your business? Have you thought about extending your lease? Sometimes, things don’t work out and you may need to change your lease or end it early. These are things we’ll go over while we work with you in negotiating and evaluating your lease options.
We can help prepare, review and negotiate professional service agreements, leases (property and equipment), purchase agreements, vendor agreements, licenses, terms of service, employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, and real estate contracts.
One of the toughest things facing new businesses is the fact that some contracts simply aren’t negotiable. In those instances, you need to make sure you read and understand all of the terms of those contracts and know what happens if things don’t quite work out as you plan. There may be other companies that provide the same service or product who have better contract terms for your business. We can help you through the legal terminology so that you know what you’re signing before you sign it.
