Business Law Firm In Orange County CA Assists Companies to Form and Grow

While California offers abundant opportunities for those who choose to live and work here, businesses that operate here face challenges from determined competition, taxation and regulation. To help you overcome obstacles to prosperity, TransActionLaw provides reliable and highly responsive business law services. As an Orange County business lawyer, I draw on more than 30 years of experience working with startups, small-to-medium-sized companies, and regional and national chains to provide preventative legal advice to help you avoid pitfalls, and I respond to urgent needs as they arise.

What is the First Step to Starting a Business in California

If you are an entrepreneur hoping to start your own business, getting trustworthy advice at the outset is vitally important. Errors made at the earliest stages can drain your resources and hamper your attempts to move your enterprise forward. Fortunately, I can assist with all the tasks that are necessary to get you up and running, including those related to:

  • Choice of entity
  • LLC Formations
  • Ownership, partnership and shareholder agreements
  • Filings with the Secretary of State
  • Executive compensation packages
  • Company bylaws
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Land use and permitting
  • Insurance issues
  • Taxation planning
  • Commercial real estate and equipment leases

If you prefer to become your own boss by acquiring a franchise business, I can represent your interests in negotiations with the franchisor.

Orange County Small Business Lawyer Advises on Operations and Growth

Most American businesses are too small to maintain inside counsel but need general counsel services to alert them to potential issues and respond in a timely manner to legal controversies. I regularly perform general counsel services for small-to-medium-sized companies, managing such matters as:

  • Contract review and development — Contracts are the lifeblood of any company. All your opportunities for profit and your exposure to loss are contained in the terms of your contracts. I perform meticulous reviews of your existing contracts to discern where you are vulnerable and suggest strategies for remediation. I also help you negotiate favorable terms for future contracts involving goods and services, equipment and supplies, real estate, employment, insurance, and every other area of concern.
  • Buy and sell agreements — If you choose to go into business with a partner, an essential element of your partnership agreement is a buy-sell agreement. This agreement limits the partners’ options for selling their ownership shares and protects owners from being saddled with an unwelcomed partner. Terms must be specific and not overly restrictive. Properly drafted, a buy-sell agreement strengthens the business and provides for smoother transitions when one of the partners can no longer participate.
  • Due diligence — For complex commercial transactions, such as mergers or joint ventures, I perform the due diligence necessary to properly value an asset, plan for taxation, structure the financing and facilitate the transition to maximize the value to your firm.

Throughout the lifecycle of your business, you need an experienced attorney to safeguard your interests and enhance your prospects of success. Nothing is more gratifying to me than using my knowledge, skill and experience to help a business client prosper.
