Business Formation / Restructuring
There are a variety of options open to entities that are just starting out or those going through changes. To determine which type of structure is a logical fit for your interests, you should consider what your personal and business taxation and liability needs may be.
Attention to detail in drafting the documents to file can ensure your rights are protected and liability is limited. After your business is formed, employment agreements and policies must be prepared and Bracken law has years of experience drafting non-diclosure agreements and non-compete agreements.
Successful transactional arrangements plan for not only the current but also the long-term protection of a company. Taking into account the potential risks and liability that may arise down the road is necessary in negotiating and executing any type of contract. Certain agreements may be necessary to ensure your financial interests and assets are protected, and these documents are not always easy to create without the assistance of a legal professional. A competent attorney can help you draft and review agreements for real estate, leases, non-compete contracts, licensing agreements, employment contracts, and distribution and purchase agreements.
