Virginia Commercial Lawyers
Whether you are the owner of a small or large company, you’ve probably already come across issues that may be optimally resolved with the help of our Virginia Commercial Lawyers at Dale Jensen Law Firm, PLC. Though there are some things you may be capable of dealing with on your own, as time progresses you are likely to encounter a situation that goes beyond your comfort level. When in doubt, contact a business lawyer from our law firm to learn how we may be able to help you, and if legal assistance is warranted.
Why a Business Lawyer is Essential
In addition to hiring an accountant to advise you on important financial issues that affect your company, hiring a business lawyer is also essential. We provide vital assistance to Virginia businesses in nearly every area of their company: from establishing a business incorporation structure, to zoning compliance to trademark guidance to liability, and much more. Do not wait for litigation to land on your doorstep before you enlist the aid of a business lawyer.
In many instances, litigation could have been avoided if the business owner had followed the guidance of their attorney. In the end, you could end up paying much more in litigation costs, damage to your company’s reputation, and lost consumer confidence by not following the advice of a lawyer. Remember, our team has your best interest in mind at all times.
Do all business lawyers handle all areas of business law?
Some business lawyers specialize in one area of business law while others are a general practice with a focus on business law. Still, others do not focus specifically on any area of business law but they may handle the occasional case that falls into that area. Below is a shortlist of common areas of business law that you may need assistance with in the short or long term.
In advance of hiring a business lawyer or a particular law firm, check to see what cases they handle and if they have experience in all or most of the issues with which you may need legal guidance. Here are just a few examples of what a business formation lawyer Virginia business owners trust at Dale Jensen Law Firm, PLC can help you with:
- Establishing a new company’s business structure. If you have not yet formed your company, you may benefit from learning about the pros and cons of each type of structure. While a limited liability company may be right for some, for others a sole proprietorship may be best. Your business lawyer can also help you correctly fill out all of the necessary paperwork and submit it to the proper authorities.
- Drawing up standard and specialized contracts. Contracts are an intrinsic aspect of most companies whether it’s customer agreements, supplier contracts, or employee agreements. As they are legally binding, it’s crucial that your company’s contracts protect your best interests and minimize the risk of litigation.
- Registering your company’s federal and state tax identification numbers and identifying which permits are necessary for your company’s business.
- Protecting your company’s intellectual property through federal registration of trademarks and copyrights.
