Business Planning / Business Law

If you are planning to start your own business in Colorado, or if you want to expand your current business, I can help expedite the process for you and work towards ensuring a successful outcome. I will look after your best interests by finding strategies to limit your personal liability and improve your bottom line.

I assist individuals and businesses of all sizes with a variety of legal services, including: business planning, formation and governance; contract writing and review; and member, director, shareholder and employee relations.

• BUSINESS PLANNING, FORMATION AND GOVERNANCE
I can help you choose an appropriate form for organizing your business. I can draft the basic governing documents, including bylaws and operating agreements.

I can advise you on creating your governing structure, including establishing a board of directors and creating and defining the positions and duties of the corporate officers.

• CONTRACT REVIEW AND DEVELOPMENT
Most business transactions conducted today are done through the use of contracts. A contract is a binding agreement between or among two or more parties that sets terms for transactions and relationships. Such terms might include price, delivery, quantity of items to be sold and future contingencies. Parties might also wish to establish procedures for resolving conflicts. It is essential for the parties to clearly understand what they have agreed to do, and to be aware of their respective rights and obligations.

I can draft contracts and review and modify existing agreements. I offer advice on contract interpretation and enforcement. My passion is to help you achieve the results you desire and to see your business succeed and thrive for years to come.

• MEMBER / DIRECTOR / SHAREHOLDER / EMPLOYEE RELATIONS
Contracts do not just exist between businesses, but also with the participating members of the organization. Most businesses consist of a group of individuals who agree to share ownership interests and responsibility for corporate governance and performing the work.

I can help guide you through the complex process of owning, building and operating your business with a view towards achieving sound and harmonious working relationships with everyone and all interests involved.
