Orange County Business Law Attorneys

business under attackIn Orange County, California, business owners face an amazing array of regulations. They come from a variety of expected and unexpected sources including: local city code enforcement, county level enforcement, the endless state business and professions codes, corporate laws, the super-aggressive Franchise Tax Board, the sometimes one-sided Labor Board, countless other adversarial government entities battering down your doors, customer disputes, employee threats, lawsuits from left field and endless other pitfalls.

Trusted, Affordable Assistance for Orange County Business Owners

We help our clients and their businesses stay on top of things. For example, we help our clients remain compliant with keeping their business entities (INC’s and LLC’s) up-to-date with the Secretary of State and thus “viable” so that if they ever are served a lawsuit out of left field (and it happens ALL the time) they’ll be protected. Unfortunately, when the shareholders of a California corporation fail to follow required corporate formalities, creditors and claimants can “pierce the corporate veil” and hold the shareholders personally liable for the corporation’s debts and obligations.

Partnering with us on the little –but important details– gives you the peace of mind that your exposure to liability is minimized. If a lawsuit comes your way, our experienced business litigation attorneys will do everything possible to either quash it, or ensure the best possible outcome.

We Help Clients With All Types of Business Contracts

Every business deal revolves around contracts. Every transaction where money changes hands, whether you know it or not, is a contract. If you chose to use an off-the-shelf sales form from Staples, you might be risking your business on every transaction you do. On the other hand, if you use QucikBooks or FreshBooks or some other business software to conduct business, and your estimates, sales invoices are completely naked of ANY legal terms, you are a huge target if one of your customers gets “ticked off” at you and asks their attorney what options they have. When annoyed-customer’s attorney sees that you never invested in any custom legal terms for your business, they can flash their client a big smile and assure them that he can get them some justice or payback! To the attorney, it is like a huge roll-up door that is fully OPEN and that attorney can drive right through it. That business was doing business without any business terms protecting it! It is so sad — the business-killing lawsuits we see virtually weekly — could have been totally avoided by not much more than a paragraph on the bottom of rear of their everyday business paperwork.
