Reiter Law provides a broad range of business-related services including corporate, nonprofit, and other entity formation, executive and other employment agreements, and commercial and business agreements. Reiter Law works closely with clients to assess adequately their business needs in an effort to develop innovative legal strategies to help them achieve their goals. We also handle the sale or purchase of businesses.
Business law practice areas include:
Formation/Incorporation of Businesses:
How you structure or form your business is very important. It can impact your estate plan, income tax and exposure to legal liability. We work diligently to determine and form the proper business entity for each of our clients’ various business requirements. Risk is inherent when starting a company and the attorneys at Reiter Law take the time to navigate you through the complexities of bylaws, articles of incorporation, partnership agreements, and the like.
An operating agreement is the governing document for limited liability companies (LLC’s). We can help create and implement a tailored operating agreement for your LLC to avoid reverting to the default rules of the State in which your entity operates. We excel at negotiating the terms of operating agreements in a satisfactory fashion to meet our clients’ needs.
Executive and Other Employment Agreements:
We have a vast knowledge of the key elements to consider when negotiating and drafting employment agreements, ranging from temporary employees all the way up to corporate executives. We recognize that compensation is an important factor but is not the bottom line in the hiring process. Other important factors to consider and negotiate include benefits, paid-time off, retirement contributions, termination procedures, at-will employment, notice provisions, non-compete restrictions, reimbursement of expenses, confidentiality restrictions, among others. Whether you need help drafting, reviewing or negotiating an employment agreement, the attorneys at Reiter Law are here to help you through that process.
Non-Compete and Non-Disclosure Agreements:
A non-compete agreement can quickly turn into a bad disagreement if not handled appropriately, and we can help. A Non-Compete Agreement is a contract between an employee and an employer that stipulates that for a determined period of time and within a certain geographical area that after an employee terminates employment they cannot enter or start a similar profession in competition against the employer.
Joint Venture and Strategic Partnership Transactions:
Our highly skilled attorneys are experts in negotiating, documenting, and structuring all types of partnerships and joint ventures to seamlessly meet your needs and maximize the intended return.
Commercial and Business Agreements:
We are aggressive about protecting our clients and we find this particularly important when negotiating commercial and business agreements. Businesses are expected to know how to protect their interests; we can help you with this knowledge and help you understand what constitutes a valid and enforceable commercial agreement.
Purchase and/or Sale of Businesses:
Our attorneys work tirelessly to help individuals, professionals and partners alike buy and sell businesses. We understand that buying a business is a huge undertaking and we want to make it as approachable as possible so that you can accomplish your dream without worrying if you are making the correct legal moves. Alternatively, we understand that you have worked hard for your success and if you are considering selling your business we don’t want you to risk losing any of your hard work because you don’t have the right legal team by your side to help you understand all the fine print. Let us advise you so you can sell your business with confidence.
If you want to discuss a new product or idea you developed, but want to make sure the information you share remains confidential, a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is what you’re looking for. Whether it’s drafting a NDA or enforcing one, the experienced attorneys are Reiter Law can help.
Dissolving a business is difficult no matter how it is done – whether peacefully, through bankruptcy or due to a partnership dispute. Every business is unique and therefore the dissolution of your personal business deserves to be treated as an individual case. Here at Reiter Law we have the experience necessary to individually tailor our approach to our client’s specific situation.
