There’s still plenty to do when you decide to end your business. We can help you keep track of the details to make sure you aren’t liable after your business has closed.


Considerations When Ending Your Business

Our firm provides 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.
