Business Formation & Planning
Traveland Law advises a variety of clients from the experienced entrepreneur to the first time business owner. We work with each client to form an entity that will meet their needs and minimize taxes and expenses. We ensure that each of our clients understands the legal requirements necessary for the formation and continuation of their business. We have significant experience in the formation of C-corporations, S-corporations, limited liability companies, general partnerships, limited liability partnerships and professional entities. We provide advice on corporate governance matters, including the duties of a board of directors. We also advise corporate boards, individual directors, and board committees on their duties and responsibilities to the company and its shareholders.
Periodically, it is imperative for business owners to evaluate their business practices to ensure they are using documents and procedures that will aid them in preventing future problems. As well, businesses need to ensure their documents are updated to reflect any changes in the law that might affect the agreements. A Business Audit is a business’s most effective and least expensive means of practicing preventative law and determining potential legal issues before they arise.
At the request of a client, we will audit the business, review legal documents, review corporate policies and programs, review business records and analyze employment policies. During the audit, we will identify potential legal issues and areas in which the client may improve its practices in order to help prevent future legal problems. We also review and improve form contracts used by the business.
Employment issues are inevitable for any business. However, with sound employment practices and policies, potential problems can be lessened. Traveland Law aids clients in all aspects of employment matters, including hiring practices, drafting of employment, confidentiality and non-compete agreements, hiring independent contractors, and establishing good employment policies. We advise employers on handling employment situations such as hiring, terminations, disability accommodations, and family and medical leave.
