I can help if you want to sell all or a part ownership interest in your company to outside investors or to key employers. If you have problems with a joint owner who isn't contributing time or finances to the business, you may need legal assistance. If you want to raise cash and decide to take on another owner to do so, you will definitely need legal help. If you want to set up subsidiary companies for other purposes, or perhaps with other joint owners, you will need certainly need assistance. If your business faces judgment or substantial indebtedness and you want to make certain your personal assets are protected, you definitely will require legal help.
I will walk you through the process from start to finish. I will help you find an accountant you can trust to assist with your financial planning, and once your business is prospering, to aid in reducing your tax obligations.
Why you should hire Donald L. Christian Jr., as your Business Attorney
When I meet with clients to discuss creating an LLC for their new business, whether they are solely owned, jointly owned with family members or jointly owned with "friends" I ask questions to learn more about the nature of your business. I share thoughts and ideas I have garnered from first hand experience in my twenty-five years as an attorney; experiences learned from failed businesses, from owners who refused to work together, and owners who locked other owners out of the business. All my experience benefits you directly.
I cannot tell you how many times I have met with business owners to discuss their "problems" only to learn they found a "form" on the internet or paid $99.00 for a standard form from some online service. They are never happy when I share the bad news about how many holes there are in their business agreements, or worse yet, how difficult it will be to remove the joint owner they now hate or are about to divorce.
The simple truth is that you get what you pay for and if you choose to cut corners on the front end, you may pay dearly on the back end. When you set up a Limited Liability Company or Sub-S Corporation the primary goal is to separate your business from your personal life so your personal assets cannot be taken to satisfy a company obligation. As a lawyer with over twenty five years experience I can help you accomplish that goal and a hundred others you haven't even considered.
It is possible to form a business on the cheap, to use forms you find free online, and in a very few cases that works out. However, hiring a lawyer with over twenty-five years experience sorting out the problems business owners encounter may well save you tens of thousands of dollars in attorney's fees and the emotional distress associated with litigation.
Why your Business needs an Attorney
It has been said the two most important professionals for any new business to hire are an accountant and a lawyer. I agree wholeheartedly.
No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
