In business, multifaceted and specific issues will often arise. Each business may require specific services not applicable across the board to all.
For instance, a woman either starting or in a business may want to discuss family law issues in connection with a new or ongoing business, either to determine whether it is subject to community property laws in California, or whether planning can be done to ensure that business assets can remain in the sole ownership of the business owner (or owners).
Corporate and securities lawyers provide advice on LLC, Corporation or Partnership matters, advantages and disadvantages of each entity, timing of formation, ownership structure and raising capital.
Estate lawyers are able to assist with how business assets may be distributed following the death of a stockholder or principal, and how succession in ownership of a business may take place.
Tax lawyers offer services to minimize the tax burdens on a business, and may offer suggestions in structuring the entity and holding the assets of the business so as to take advantage of preferable tax treatment.
Real estate lawyers can offer assistance with leases, landlord-tenant issues, zoning and code requirements, the purchase of property, investment in property, and financing issues.
Intellectual property attorneys can assist with obtaining patents and trademarks to protect the ideas and proprietary information of business owners.
Employment lawyers provide legal counseling concerning the relationship between employers and employees. They advise in areas of compliance with wage-hour regulations, worker’s compensation, discrimination, at-will employment, and areas such as workplace behavior. They can provide employee handbooks which describe a company’s employment policy to employees so they may understand the terms of their employment.
Litigation attorneys often are involved with businesses when they are in a dispute with other businesses or other individuals, but they also may be involved with disputes among business owners. Often, they are called upon to assist a client to resolve a dispute prior to a lawsuit being filed and litigation resulting, which is a costly and time-consuming process.
Each situation is different, and requires individual attention and care.
Women Lawyers Mean Business is your one destination for any legal needs related to your role as a woman business owner.
