Business Law Attorneys in Sanford, NC

Serving Lee County, Harnett County, Chatham County and Moore County Businesses

Starting your own business is exciting and adventurous. There are several options that you have to legally form your business and organize it to protect you against future liability. There are important decisions that need to be made knowledgeably. Choosing the right structure can affect a future sale of the business or your financial stability in the event of various circumstances. A Sanford business litigation lawyer from our attorneys at Post | Foushee | Patton- Trail Lawers will be able to advise you insightfully, answer your questions, and ensure that you and your business are properly protected for the future. Do not skimp on this vitally important step of creating your company.

Organizing Your Business: The Structure

The first step in the formation of your business is to choose the type of ownership structure. The choices are:

  • LLC or Limited Liability Company: includes elements of partnership and corporate structure
  • Partnership: two or more partners co-own the business and share profits
  • Sole proprietorship: a single individual in business for himself (most small businesses choose this form)
  • Corporation: a business that is legally its own entity
  • Non-Profit: organization established for some other purpose than financial profit
  • Co-operative: organization jointly owned by those that use its services

Choosing the right type of structure for your business will depend upon how many owners there are, how you want it to be run, the type of business that it is, and many others. The trusted legal counsel at our firm will make sure that you have taken all necessary legal steps to support the prosperity of your new business.

When forming a new business, contact a Sanford business litigation lawyer at our firm and be assured your legal basics are covered.

Business Litigation in Sanford

Litigation may be necessary to defend against a business lawsuit or to take a vendor, employee, or contractor to court when they have violated the terms of their contract, or in a variety of other situations including partnership disputes, stockholder disputes, or other issues. Preparing a business lawsuit is a complex matter requiring specific skills and insight into business and corporate law. The resolution of business disputes must be cost-effective and as rapid as possible. We are experienced in addressing legal threats and lawsuits that arise in a range of areas.

These include:

  • Employee law
  • Breach of contract
  • Issues involving intellectual property
  • Partnership disputes

Contract Disputes, Partnership Disputes, Breaches, Employee Claims and Lawsuits

All the written contracts and agreements involved in your business must be carefully drafted to reduce the risk that legal problems will arise in the future. We can review your existing contracts to ensure that you have not left your company open to potential legal threats. Whether the contracts are between you and your employees, your customers or any other business with which your company is involved, these contracts must be individually drafted for the safety and legal protection of your activity. All contracts presented in the course of doing business should be reviewed by a highly qualified business attorney before signing.

It is impossible to predict and prevent all possible legal problems for your business. Breach of contract, partnership disputes, employee claims, and lawsuits can all arise and must be handled with a great deal of skill. Our firm has a reputation for serving the community with the highest level of professionalism. Our firm has a great deal of knowledge and insight into business and commercial law, and can serve you should you be facing a legal threat, or need to take action against a competitor, contractor or partner, or any other party.

Sanford Commercial Litigation Attorney

Not many law firms are engaged in addressing business and commercial litigation, which is a particularly complex area of law. In many cases, disputes and conflicts are resolved through mediation or arbitration, and we can represent your interests and protect your business in either situation. In some cases, it is not possible to resolve disputes through these alternative dispute resolution processes, and litigation must be undertaken for justice to prevail.

We can provide you with an evaluation of your situation and advise you of the options and what can be expected in your specific legal problem, and how to best proceed. Business disputes are inevitable, and unfortunately, these legal problems appear to have become part of the price of doing business. How these disputes are addressed and resolved is extremely important, as the financial losses can be extensive if not addressed with a great deal of legal skill and ability.

Our commercial litigation lawyers can review your situation and determine the best course of action. We have a reputation for excellent legal work and great skill in commercial and business litigation. Call our attorneys today at (919) 775-5616 to take charge of your legal matter.
