Corporate and Business Law
If you are thinking about starting a business, or making changes to your current business structure, it is prudent to do so with the help of professional advisors (e.g. a lawyer and an accountant).
You need to make sure you are properly set up for success. We can help advise in terms of whether a Sole proprietorship, Partnership or Corporation is the right entity under which to proceed. Once that decision is made, we can help with the preparation of Articles of Incorporation, the organization of a Corporation, or a Partnership or Shareholder Agreement if required.
Along the way, there may be changes to the way you operate that need to be recorded, you may need Articles of Amendment or Articles of Amalgamation. On the advice of your Accountant, you may need assistance with implementing tax planning measures.
During the course of business, you may need to arrange financing, including the preparation and registration fo security documentation such a a Mortgage, General Security Agreement and Personal Guarantees. There may be contracts with suppliers, business associates and employees to be drafted or reviewed.
We have experience as solicitors for many local businesses, and would be pleased to discuss your business issue with you.
