From forming a legal entity to registering and protecting its intellectual property, I provide services to help and protect your business.
Legal Entity Formation
When starting a business, choosing a legal entity type can be a daunting task but one that can have major effects on the way your business is run. The decision between a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation or limited liability company is not always an easy one. Each has their own benefits and detriments and it’s important to understand your needs based on your plans to grow the company. We advise clients on which legal entity is right for them and assist them in filing for and registering their legal entity.
Whether it be partnership agreements, service agreements, revenue share agreements, licensing agreements or stock/equity transfer agreements, a contract will be involved in almost any transaction you or your company have with another entity. It’s important that these agreements are drafted appropriately and are not simple stock agreements that might not apply to your particular circumstances. We assist clients in drafting, maintaining and reviewing these contracts to ensure smooth transactions and your company’s protection.
Privacy is a huge concern right now and it should be high on every company’s priority list. Privacy policies are not as simple as copying a form into your website. They must be hand crafted for each individual business and must be continuously updated. Failure to do so could lead to potentially major concerns later on especially if your clients or users of your website are residents of California or the European Union, where the California Consumer Privacy Act and General Data Protection Regulation reign supreme with very strict rules for use of and disclosure of data collection. We assist clients in drafting, reviewing and updating their privacy policies to ensure they are as accurate as possible.
The terms of service is your agreement with your users. It’s important to understand what your users are agreeing to and what you need to include in your terms of service to protect yourself and your company to the fullest extent. The terms of service are literally the front lines of your protection and should be treated as such. Without a proper terms of service for your website of application, you or your company may be vulnerable to unnecessary risk. We assist clients in drafting and reviewing their terms of service to ensure they are protected.
