Comprehensive Legal Services for Franchises and Corporations

Business law is an area of legal practice that stretches far and wide. It touches every corner of a business’s operation and entity, including its initial formation. Our business lawyers are capable of helping your company get through it all without worry.

Key areas of business law we assist with include:

  • Business entity selection: We sit down to discuss your business objectives, purpose, and scale to help you form your business organization. This process helps avoid legal complications and may even minimize your year-end taxes.
  • Ongoing outside general counsel: Each day your company can run into a whole new set of legal issues, or a persistent problem that needs repeated attention. Our South Dakota business lawyer offers ongoing outside general counsel for businesses and corporate entities of all sizes. Rather than building a legal department for your company, save time and money by keeping us on speed dial.
  • Commercial transactions: Purchase-sale agreements between companies can get complicated — and costly if they are written out of your favor. Whether your commercial transaction involves real estate law or other agreements, we can protect your best interests and bottom line.
  • Business contracts: Every turning “gear” in your business is spinning because of a business contract, such as shareholder and employment agreements. Keep things running smoothly by letting us draft and review your company’s business contracts.
  • Non-compete agreements: Some of the most important business contracts are non-compete agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and other forms of restrictive covenants. We carefully create and review these agreements to make sure your corporation is well-protected from interference, external and internal.
  • Nonprofit corporation and foundation creation: The formation of a nonprofit group is always done under a microscope and high scrutiny from interested parties, including the IRS. We will help you navigate the process to found your foundation without complications.

Our attorneys are also estate planning professionals. We can develop a business succession plan to help you pass on your legacy.

Avoid Common Legal Hurdles in Franchise Operations

Businesses, irrespective of their scale, may face an array of legal challenges:

  • Contract Disputes: These arise when one or more parties involved in a contractual agreement fail to fulfill their obligations. This can result in loss of business and legal complications.
  • Labor and Employment Issues: This could involve anything from wage disputes to unfair dismissal claims, and can lead to significant financial and reputational damage.
  • Intellectual Property Rights Violations: Unauthorized use of a business’s protected creations can lead to substantial revenue losses.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Businesses must adhere to various local, state, and federal regulations. Non-compliance can result in hefty fines and penalties.
  • Shareholder Disagreements: Disputes among shareholders can disrupt business operations and may even lead to costly litigation.
  • Business Succession Problems: Without a well-structured succession plan, transition of ownership can cause chaos and potentially jeopardize the business's future.

A general business lawyer near you can be instrumental in navigating these potential pitfalls. They possess a deep understanding of business law and can provide valuable legal advice to avoid complications. They can also draft and review contracts, ensuring they're legally sound and reflect your best interests.
