Business Legal Check Up.

Business Legal Check UpIdentify your legal risks, and plan for a prosperous future.

For established businesses, Neal offers a Business Legal Check Up at a one-time flat fee.  Neal will meet with you to learn about your business, and the way you operate.  He will help you identify legal risks to your business, and outline a plan for managing those risks well.  Just as your doctor helps you determine if your body is healthy, Neal can help you determine if your business is "legally healthy."  Depending on the nature of your business, your Business Legal Check Up might include the following assessments:

                     1) Are you operating in the right kind of business entity?

                     2) Are your personal assets protected from your business liabilities?

                     3) Do you have the right Partnership or Buy-Sell Agreements in place?

                     4) What are the potential liabilities for your business, and how can you protect against them?

                     5) What are your future plans for your business- how can you plan now to get value from your business in the future?

                     6) Are your customer contracts written to protect and prosper your business?

                     7) Are your vendor and business to business contracts fair and helpful, or unneccessarily burdensome?

                     8) Do you have the right Employee policies in place, and are you protecting your business against disclosure of confidential information?

                     9) Is your relationship with sub-contractor's clear, so that risk and responsibilities of each party are not confused?

                     10) Does your business face risks because of the real estate you own or lease for your business?

In most cases, the first step in the Business Legal Check Up process is an initial meeting with Neal.  That is when he learns as much as he can about your business, how you operate, and your goals for the future.  Neal gathers the information he needs to make a good legal analysis of your business, and then takes time to closely review your business.  He produces a written assessment with comments and suggestions for protecting and prospering your business.  Of course, Neal would be available to help you if you decide to move forward with any of his recommendations.  The Business Legal Check Up is a responsible way to determine the legal risks for your business, and to continue to position your business for future success.  By the end of the process, you will either have great confidence that your business is well protected and positioned for the future, or you will have a step by step plan for getting your business to that healthy place.
