Why you need an attorney when starting a business

If you have been wrestling with the idea of starting your own business, it's important that you hire an experienced business law attorney to walk you through the process. You don't want to incorrectly file documents, register the wrong business name or create a partnership agreement that doesn't benefit you. Let's explore how an attorney helps you when starting a business.

What is "termination for convenience?"

Your business’ contracts serve as a sign of your stability, yet even within them, some may stand out. For example, having a contract with a government agency in San Jose can be a great benefit given the security that such agreements often provide. Such organizations have access to resources that ensure their existence, thus eliminating many of the concerns inherent with private companies. Yet with the advantages that come from working with a government partner also come some disadvantages. One of the most notable is their control over the viability of your business agreement.

How do you form an LLC?

As a California business owner, you may have decided that organizing your company as an LLC is the best option for you. But what happens next? How do you actually form an LLC once you have made your decision?

You and other California business owners should understand the risks, as well as what to do to reduce the chances of a violent incident endangering your workers and affecting your legal interests.

Understanding blacklisting laws in California

While it can make for good drama, this type of blacklisting can have serious consequences for those who truly try to keep someone from working again in their industry. At the law offices of Lawrence R. Jensen & Associates, we know it is important for you and other California business owners to understand the laws regarding blacklisting.

How to protect yourself when buying an existing business

However, starting a business from scratch can be daunting. You have no idea if your business will succeed, and the startup costs are expensive.
