chandler business lawyers gunderson law group

No matter how big or small your business, you need to work with an experienced Chandler business lawyer who can advise you on the complex local and state laws associated with business ownership. Otherwise, you risk making costly mistakes that could lead to the loss of your business or even criminal prosecution. Ignorance of the law is not a defense.

The experienced business attorneys at the Gunderson Law Group can advise you on every aspect of running a business, from putting together the right structural plan to creating partnerships with other businesses to drawing up important documents. Our attorneys work with businesses of all types across Chandler and throughout Arizona, including small businesses with only a few employees to large chains that have locations throughout the country.

Selection and Organization of the Right Business Entity

Your business success starts with the selection of the right organization entity, and your Chandler business lawyer will help you understand all the considerations for each business type to ensure that you choose the right one to meet your goals.

Some options for business organization include:

  • Corporation, including an S-corporation or C-corporation
  • Partnership
  • Limited liability company
  • Limited partnership

Each of these business types has different tax obligations and distributes liability differently. The choice you make will have a big impact on the way you can claim your income, the profits you can make, and the personal responsibility you will face if your business is sued.

The Gunderson Law Group will help you understand how the business entity you choose can affect your stated goals and will give you advice about the best organizational choice.

An attorney from our group will also give you ongoing counsel about how to maintain your entity, such as maintaining the license, keeping up with the right insurance, and filing the right disclosure documents.

Advice and Assistance While Growing Your Business

Once your business has been organized on a solid foundation, you may need additional advice and assistance with legal issues as you grow your business. Often times this includes the preparation or review of important legal documents. Sometimes it also includes revising or implementing new legal strategies as your business grows.

We can help with:

  • Drafting and developing contracts, purchase agreements, operating agreements, and other important business documents;
  • Planning and negotiating new partnerships or joint ventures;
  • Revisions to business structure, arrangements with key employees, and other contracted workers;
  • Securing and protecting intellectual property rights by registering trademarks and copyrights and/or entering into licensing agreements.

Business Succession Plans and Winding Down Your Business

Whether or not you have already developed a business succession plan, it is important to consider exit options for any business with which you may be involved. Business owners often want a plan in place to ensure that they will be properly compensated if and when they retire or sell their business. Key employees who have helped to build the business often play a key role in the future of that business. A well-drafted business succession plan often includes a Buy-Sell Agreement and other important instruments to help ensure the long-term viability of the business.

The Gunderson Law Group has the experienced Chandler business lawyers that can help you with all aspects of your business operations, no matter what your industry. Call us today to talk about your business needs, whether you are just starting up or you have been in business for years.
