Forming a business requires meticulous attention to detail and familiarity with the many legal considerations involved. To get your business off on the right foot, it is critical to involve an experienced attorney at the outset. A lawyer can not only walk you through the formation process, but also alert you to valuable strategies for avoiding costly disputes and minimizing exposure to liability.
What Does a Business Formation Lawyer Help With?
At Gallagher Krich, APC, our attorneys provide a full range of business law advice and services, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts. We can also provide an opinion on the strength of a contract and your termination options.
As a business owner, you may be handed a contract or a waiver, with the expectation that you will sign it on the spot. But signing that document may expose you to needless risks. For example, by signing a 1542 waiver, you are foregoing your right to sue.
