Business formation and transactions

Fletcher Van Gilder can help you start a new business and can help keep your existing business running smoothly.

There are a lot of things to think about when starting a new business. The lawyers of Fletcher Van Gilder can work with you to decide what form of business is best for your new venture. We can prepare corporate governance documents so that the rights and responsibilities of everyone involved with the new business are clearly defined and understood. We will also make sure that all the necessary legal documents are filed with the Secretary of State.

Once your business is up and running, Fletcher Van Gilder’s goal is to help you manage and grow your business in a cost-effective manner. We can help you develop forms for documents you routinely use, like purchase orders, invoices, quotes and customer agreements, so that your business is appropriately protected by the documents you use every day. We can handle your real estate needs, including the purchase or sale of property and the drafting or review of commercial leases.

Finally, all businesses have to deal with employment issues from time to time. We can help you manage all the legal aspects of employment matters, including the development of employee manuals, the review and preparation of employment contracts, and the defense of your company in the event that a current or former employee accuses you of violating state or federal employment laws.
