How We Serve

Contracts + Agreements

Contracts and agreements are essential for any entrepreneur. We think about contracts and agreements as foundational discussions between parties to a business transaction. Contracts help lay the ground rules for how parties will do business and provide remedies in the event something goes wrong.

We can:

  • Review contracts and agreements

  • Consult for contract and agreement negotiations

  • Draft a contract or agreement for you

Form a Company

Choosing the appropriate business structure that best fits you or your team’s vision for your venture is essential. There are a number of business forms to choose from, all with different liability and tax consequences.

We can:

  • Help you select a business form

  • Help you file paperwork to create a legal entity

  • Draft governance documents like bylaws

  • Draft and review stock purchase agreements

Form a Nonprofit

Nonprofits have document requirements for their formation and legal documentation is needed to effectively run them. Bylaws lay out how a nonprofit will operate including whether or not it will have members. A nonprofit needs the appropriate documentation to help it achieve its purpose and mission.

We can:

  • Form a nonprofit and draft necessary formation documents

  • Assist with gaining tax-exempt status

  • Provide consultation for strategic planning and board development
