Choosing the proper structure for your business is one of the most influential steps that you can take when forming your own business. The type of business structure you choose for your company will help to set the tone for your business moving forward. Options available for the formation of your small business include:
- Sole Proprietorship
- Limited Liability Company
- General Partnership
- Limited Liability Partnership
- Non Profit
Working with our experienced legal team can help you to determine the right structure for your business while taking into consideration tax implications, liabilities and a variety of other key factors.
Contracts are a key component to most businesses. Whether you are entering into a business partnership with someone, or executing a contract for goods and services, poorly executed contracts can have a significant impact on the success of your business. An experienced Maryland business litigation lawyer can help to both develop contracts and manage them when someone (either you or another party) breaches the terms of a binding agreement.
All business owners should have some knowledge of employment law. When managing employees, it’s important to have a clear understanding of employment law to ensure that all employees are treated fairly, and reduce running the risk of ending up in court. Our firm can help to develop employment agreements and provide guidance around employee laws that all employers should follow, including:
- The Family Medical Leave Act
- Fair Labor Standards Act
- The Americans with Disabilities Act
- The Equal Pay Act
- The Civil Rights Act of 1964
Our legal guidance can assist business owners when it comes to employing staff, reviewing employee handbooks, and executing employee contracts to name a few essential employment-related tasks.
Protection of Intellectual Property
Intellectual property is often a key element in the success of any business. Intellectual property may include inventions, logos, brands, trademarks or designs. You will want to make sure that all of your intellectual property is protected from the start. An experienced Maryland business litigation lawyer can help to protect your intellectual property by taking the proper measures to trademark, copyright or patent your ideas or inventions and to enforce your intellectual property rights when someone else attempts to infringe upon them.
While contacting a business lawyer from the very start can certainly be helpful, it’s important to be aware that you can reach out to our team at any point during the operation of your business. No matter what your company’s legal needs are, our firm can steer you in the right direction. We look forward to speaking with you.
