Business Formations: LLCs, LLPs, LPs,
S-Corps and C-Corps

When you start your own venture, the very first thing that needs to be decided is the formation of the business,whether it will be an LLC, LLP, LP, S-Corp or a C-Corp. You need to ascertain which of these formations will aptly suit your short-term and long-term business goals, business liabilities, taxation among others. For instance, it can get difficult for the layman to differentiate between a C-Corp and an S-Corp.
However, a Corporate Lawyer can help you understand the key differences and also help you decide you which formation will best fit your requirements. Similarly, they’ll be able to help you understand the nitty gritty of an LLC (limited liability company), LLP (limited liability partnership) or LP (limited partnership). While some of the formations are favored by large enterprises, the other entities are perfect for startups and SMBs (small and medium-sized businesses).

Business Agreements: Non Disclosures, Licensing, Asset Purchases, Stock Purchases,
PPMs & Corporate Governance

Business contracts or agreements are one of the most common reasons why corporates and businesses hire business lawyers. These agreements are legally binding documents between two parties at least. Either of the sides agree to take or avoid certain actions, which are mentioned in the agreements. These agreements may include but are not limited to – NDA, Licensing documents, property or other asset purchases, stock purchases, PPMs, Corporate Governance, Licensing and so on and so forth. Because breach of contract is common and occurs when one party fails to honor or perform their part of the agreement, it becomes necessary to take legal advice from expert lawyers.

Employment Agreements

Employment relationship in any reputable organization, enterprise or business is always a contractual one and the contracts are in many forms such as ‘at-will employment’. South Carolina is an at-will employment state, which means that an employee may quit their job at any time for any reason or no reason whatsoever. On the same lines, employers can also hire and fire employees at will. This is why it becomes so important to hire a corporate lawyer, who understands the law and offer legal guidance on – wage and hour issues, public policy violations etc.

Hiring an attorney can help you start on the right foot by effectively lowering your stress, helping you analyze essential legal matters, guiding you to take the right legal decision and contributing to your business’s growth in the long run.
