If you are starting a new business or looking to take your existing business to the next level, the right strategic planning attorney can provide vital assistance in nearly every area, from business incorporation and taxation to trademark and copyright advice.
Your lawyer should also be able to help you create a map of your company's “big picture” and long-term goals. This can be invaluable when it comes to managing business expectations and giving partners and investors a clear understanding of how, and where, they can add value.
How a Strategic Planning Assistance Attorney Can Help
At The Law Office of Philip P. Crowley LLC, we will work closely with you to learn your business quickly. Our experienced business attorneys can assist with nearly every aspect of your business.
The most common legal matters we handle include:
- Business organization. The decision about how to organize your business can be a complicated one. The right lawyer can help you decide whether you should structure or re-structure your business as a corporation or LLC, for example.
- Your attorney can assist with the preparation of standard contracts for customers and suppliers, and review of/response to contracts that you are being asked to sign.
- You likely have an accountant to prepare and file your tax returns, but an attorney experienced in tax law is essential when it comes to understanding tax consequences and advantages that arise throughout the year.
- Intellectual property. Depending on the type of business you are in, it may be in your best interest to work with an attorney who understands trademark and copyright protections, patents, and knows how to ensure pre-litigation compliance on trade secrets.
