If you have recently started a small business, you’re well aware of all of the legal requirements and steps that are involved. For many new business owners, drafting agreements and signing contracts can be a daunting task. If you are finding yourself in a similar situation, consider hiring a business attorney. Attorney Hanchett has years of experience helping business owners, especially in the following areas:
Drafting Operating Agreements
When you establish an LLC, you should really have a clear operating agreement, as this agreement will protect business assets from personal finance issues.
Here’s what should be included in your operating agreement:
- The Management Structure
- Allocation of Profits and Losses
- Voting Rights of Members
- Directions Regarding Member Equity
- Ownership Percentages
- Responsibilities of Members
- Transferring Ownership Rules
A trusted business attorney can help you draft an operating agreement that includes all of these elements.
A Non-disclosure agreement is a document that protects business information from getting released to the public. If you are planning on doing any of the following, you should consider drafting an NDA:
- Revealing a trade secret
- Discussing information with a reporter
- Revealing future business plans
- Hiring a new employee that has access to confidential business information
If after signing an NDA, an individual breaches this agreement, they can be held liable. Attorney Hanchett can help if you have questions about the process of drafting, signing, and enforcing NDA’s.
