Small Business/Non-Profit Law

small businessThis area of practice typically includes businesses that are not publicly traded.  What sort of business organization is best?  Are you buying a business rather than starting from scratch?  If so, are you buying assets or the entire other business?

What route will you pick?  A sole proprietorship, a limited liability company or partnership, or is something else smarter?

Once the business is running, the typical ongoing needs of the business like leases or purchases, loans, contract formation or negotiation, operation agreements and other reviews often crop up.

With non-profit organizations there may be both operational and organizational needs, as well as requirements surrounding fundraising and tax exemption. annual report filings, and so on.  Are you prepared to respond appropriately to your many stakeholders?
