Business Transactions

Common Business Transactions Where an Attorney Can Help

It doesn’t matter if you own a large multinational business or a small, local business in Chicago. At some point, you are going to need to have the services of an attorney to help you to better protect your business interests. After all, the act of being in business carries with it a certain amount of risk. Having an attorney can help to mitigate the risk and improve your business growth.

Attorneys can help with some of the common types of business transactions that take place in your company. Below are some of the main areas where you could benefit from using a good attorney.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Many companies, particularly those that are looking to grow, will want to merge with or acquire other companies along the way. This can be a complex and difficult process. However, it doesn’t have to be when you work with an attorney that can help with all areas of sales and purchases. A good attorney can help to set up business entities, as well. Of course, there are other areas in business when working with an attorney that can help your company.

Employment Contracts

If you have a business, you likely have employees unless you are doing it all on your own. When you have employees, you need to be sure that you are bringing them onboard correctly, and that you have good, legally binding employment contracts. Attorneys can help to set these up for you.

Non-compete Agreements

You might also need non-compete agreements. These are used to ensure that your employee will not use the information they learned when they were employed with you to start a rival business and compete with you when their employment ends.

Leases

If you are a landlord or you lease buildings to other businesses, having an attorney that can handle the leases and contracts is important. Even if you are leasing a building for your company, it’s good to have an attorney look over the lease before you sign. It ensures you understand the lease and that you don’t get into a bad lease that could come back to haunt you later.

These are just some of the types of business activities and transactions when working with the attorneys at Bell & Shah, LLC, that will be beneficial. When you take the time to choose a highly qualified, reputable business attorney, you will find that they can handle these issues, as well as all of the other things you need.
