Our Business Law Services

At Family Legacy Wealth Counsel, our Oklahoma business law team will swiftly and thoroughly review your current situation to help you design a comprehensive plan with your goals in mind, and/or assist in the resolution of current or emerging disputes/conflicts. We routinely work with businesses of all sizes on the following business law-related matters, among many others:

Business Formation

Bringing a new business to life can be an exciting and joyous endeavor. But to keep your business alive and healthy, it is important to choose the right business model. There are several structures to choose from, and the right one for you is dependent on multiple factors. Whether you form a sole proprietorship, general partnership, corporation, or limited liability company, choosing the right structure from the start can save you from unnecessary expenses and headaches down the road. After carefully reviewing your business goals, we will walk you through the pros and cons of each model and help you pick the formation that is best for your unique needs. 

Business Succession Plans 

As a business owner, it’s important to think about the longevity of your company, and what will happen to your business if you retire, develop a disability, or die. At Family Legacy Wealth Counsel, we will help you create a business succession plan that outlines exactly what should happen in any of these situations, including what should happen to your shares, and who will be in charge if you are no longer present. 

Employment Contracts

Sound employment agreements are essential to keeping a business running smoothly and with minimal conflict. A comprehensive agreement clearly explains the responsibilities, rights, and obligations of the employer and employee for the duration of the relationship.

Litigation 

It is rare for a business to never experience some type of conflict or dispute. In many cases, these issues can be resolved through negotiations, but litigation is sometimes necessary, especially when disputes become particularly contentious. Common disagreements that devolve into disputes and conflicts involve contract breaches, business dissolutions, and partnership disputes.

Why You Need an Oklahoma Business Lawyer

With the help of an experienced business lawyer, taking the steps to safeguard and grow your business can actually be an enjoyable and educational process. But attempting to handle legal matters on your own can be prohibitively complex. Not to mention, when it comes to legal matters affecting businesses, going the do-it-yourself route frequently results in errors that can invalidate contracts, lead to disputes, and cost you in the form of excess taxes, legal fees, and even fines. 

Unfortunately, these errors are often not discovered until it is too late, resulting in unmanageable expenses and countless hours spent trying to reduce the damage caused. 

Running a successful business requires intelligence, competence, and perseverance. Retaining skilled counsel to complement your operation can ensure your business stays on track, no matter what type of legal issue arises. A carefully thought-out business plan, including a comprehensive legal strategy, does more than just provide security for the future; it provides peace of mind for you and your business right now.
