As a small business ourselves, we know just how challenging it can be when you’re getting started. And once you are established, the course your business takes can give rise to increasingly complicated issues, at the very point when you have less time and resources available to confront them. When this happens, and preferably before, it is critical to have diligent counsel on your team to promptly evaluate the situation and craft a response. Whether it involves counseling entrepreneurs in the formation and growth of new business ventures, or assisting established businesses to move to the next level of growth and profitability, we work hard to know your business and provide expert guidance for your particular transactions or needs. Business law attorney Scott R. Dallas can provide strong support to your business so that you are better equipped to handle its ever-growing and ever-changing needs, leaving you better able to focus on the day-to-day aspects of your operation that are crucial for your business to succeed and thrive.
We offer representation in the following areas:
- Formation of Corporations, LLCs, Partnerships and other joint ventures
Whether starting a new business or creating an entity for a pre-existing one, we can offer guidance on which entity best fits your business needs. We will take the time to assess your individual needs and explain the available options clearly, allowing you to make informed decisions. Choosing not only the right business structure, but also ensuring that all documentation for your entity is in place and, where applicable, all state and IRS filings are timely performed, can help safeguard your interests and set the stage for optimum growth of your business. Having competent counsel on board at the outset of your business venture is an essential component of solid business planning.
- Drafting, Reviewing and Negotiating Agreements
Starting and maintaining good business relationships, projecting professionalism and crafting successful deals depend on high-quality agreements. Our focus is to draft, review and negotiate clear and comprehensive business agreements tailored to our clients’ specific needs. We work closely with our clients to identify all the issues relevant to your particular transaction and find creative but practical solutions to obstacles and sticking points. We believe getting the details right is crucial, and we can provide sound guidance to eliminate grey areas, protect your interests and avoid disputes.
- Business and Contract Disputes
Sooner or later, most business owners will be faced with a transaction that doesn’t turn out as planned, a relationship that goes sour, or agreements and obligations that go unmet. At the Law Office of Scott R. Dallas, we can provide diligent, zealous and, when circumstances so require, aggressive representation for you. We are available to advise both individuals and small businesses about their rights under contract, potential claims of breach, lease agreements, trademark infringement and unfair business practices. Of course, waiting until the situation has gone decidedly wrong to seek help in obtaining a resolution is never advisable. The better strategy is to establish a relationship with an attorney before problems begin, someone with whom you have built up rapport, who already knows the ins and outs of your business, and who will work with you proactively to avoiding disputes where possible.
