Business Formation & LLC Creation

One of the first challenges is deciding which form you want your company to take. Do you want to establish a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or a corporate structure (C-Corp/S-Corp)? It is hard to know which one is better suited to your type of company or service. Important details factor in the process of creating your business entity.

Our lawyer can help decide if your company should be a:

  • LLC
  • C-Corp/S-Corp
  • PLLC
  • PC
  • Non-Profit

Our informed team will explain the differences, as well as the pros and cons of each type of entity, and advise you on which one is best for your situation. We will then help you with the process of forming your entity with operation agreements and corporation documents required by law. We provide our services over the phone and online for your convenience.

We can consult with you and provide you with the following services:

  • Articles of organization
  • Customized minutes
  • Operating agreement
  • Perform name searches
  • Same or next day filing services

The Importance of Business Contracts

It is crucial to have contracts that spell out every detail of your business, including partnership agreements, vendor contracts with suppliers and other peripheral businesses, real estate for your facilities, and other important agreements that require written contracts.

The Gauthier Law Firm can prepare contracts that support your business goals and protect your rights. We can also revise contracts as needed from time to time, as you may change vendors or change the requirements, which will necessitate revising your contracts to reflect those changes.

Employment Documents & Property Protection

Your employment handbooks require legal language that covers different aspects of managing your workers. You are required by law to maintain employee documents, such as their application, tax forms, medical insurance, and many others. The Gauthier Law Firm can help you understand which documents you need, why they are needed, and help organize them so that nothing is mistakenly left out.

We can also help you with documents that protect your intellectual and business property rights, including non-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements. Although workers and their employers would prefer to work together for years, the reality is that people change jobs frequently. For this reason, you may need these agreements to protect your business interests and intellectual property.

Some of the legal documents included in simple matters are non-disclosure agreements, employee handbooks, deeds, and powers of attorney. More complex legal documents requiring research include employee agreements, contracts for sale, web hosting agreements, purchase agreement, simple leases, and consulting agreements.

Understanding Debt Collection Issues

As a small or mid-sized business owner, you may need to be involved in debt collection from clients or customers. It's critical to know your legal rights to seek payment for your products or services as well as the rights of your consumers. Our Richardson business law attorneys can help you understand these issues as they relate to the Federal Debt Collections Act.

On-Call General Council

We understand that you need to carefully budget and plan your expenditures. For that reason, we have a flat fee for many of our services. As a small to mid-sized business owner, take peace of mind in knowing that you can retain affordable counsel.

With The Gauthier Law Firm's on-call general council, we can:

  • Draft two basic legal documents per year
  • Review up to two contracts per year
  • Send up to two debt collection letters to non-paying customers each month
