Putnam County Business Lawyer
Running a business takes a tremendous amount of work, and legal issues are often seen as an annoyance. Nevertheless, proper legal compliance is necessary to the running of any business, especially if you want to stay on the right side of the law.
At Meyer & Spencer, our Putnam County business lawyers have helped countless businesses deal with a variety of legal issues, from formation to contract disputes. We are here to help you with your legal needs.
Businesses can take many different forms, such as sole proprietorship, partnership, S corporation, C corporation, or limited liability company (LLC). Each of these has different advantages and disadvantages, which makes choosing an appropriate business form an important decision.
For example, your business form can make a difference on whether the owner’s personal assets are vulnerable to a business creditor. If you form a partnership or sole proprietorship, then they will be. This means that if your business is sued, any creditor could move on your personal property, even if the property is not owned by the business. Conversely, an LLC or corporation would shield your assets.
Different business forms also have wildly different reporting requirements that can raise compliance costs. To consider all relevant issues, reach out to a Putnam County business lawyer today.
Our In-House Counsel Advantage Program
Many business owners recognize the importance of having steady legal guidance but do not hire a lawyer out of fear about price. We understand these concerns and have created the In-House counsel Advantage Program that provides our services to you, thus allowing you to focus on what you do best—growing your business.
With our program, the lawyers at Meyer & Spencer will do the following:
- Provide an annual review to ensure that you have submitted all required filings and that your assets are properly protected.
- Provide an annual review of the corporate books to ensure compliance and the integrity of your corporation against IRS audits.
- Host company annual meetings, to ensure that proper notice is given, that formalities are followed, and that meetings are properly created.
- Work with your Financial Planner/CPA in strategic planning to improve your company’s financial performance and set appropriate goals.
Even better, we provide an unlimited amount of over-the-phone guidance to deal with all of those pesky issues that arise every day at your business. This way, you will never have to worry that you are spending too much to much time (and money) on the phone with us. Instead, we can get you the answers that you need so that your business can continue to thrive.
