Advancing Client Interests At Every Stage Of Their Business’s Life Cycle
At R. Lee & Associates, P.C., our business law practice is dedicated to advising businesses and business owners on a variety of organizational and transactional issues. In addition to representing dental professionals in Indiana and Michigan, we regularly assist small and medium-sized entities operating in a range of industries.
Developing A Solid Foundation For Entities
We often serve as a key advisor and counselor in the initial start-up or acquisition phase of businesses and professional practices. We advise the new business client on the most appropriate choice of business entity (whether a corporation, limited liability company or other entity), prepare and file the initial organizational documents and prepare the internal corporate documents (such as bylaws, operating agreements, resolutions and shareholder agreements), and review and negotiate lease agreements and any other documents necessary to allow a new business to begin operations within the appropriate legal and organizational framework.
Using Contracts To Clarify Obligations
At the operational level, we assist our clients in negotiating and documenting key relationships with their employees, independent contractors, customers and suppliers. Our clients rely on us to help them protect their long term interests when drafting and revising a range of contacts that includes:
- Employment agreements
- Consulting agreements
- Independent contractor agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
- License agreements
- Manufacturing and supply agreements
Our emphasis is on assisting our clients in strengthening their relationships while being properly positioned should unexpected events occur.
Tailoring An Effective Plan For The Years Ahead
Finally, we advise clients on critical planning issues, including addressing the rights and responsibilities of directors, officers and shareholders and developing succession plans (such as buy-sell agreements) in the event of the death, disability or retirement of a current owner.
When clients retain us, they gain access to attorneys with decades of estate planning experience. We assist our clients with coordinating their business interests with estate planning concerns, and proactively plan for the future.
Our focus is on developing a close relationship with our business clients to better understand their unique needs and concerns and to provide practical approaches and creative solutions to often challenging issues.
