Attorney Ferraro is proud to offer comprehensive step-by-step assistance to both existing businesses and those individuals wishing to create a business organization.

Startup – Choice of Business Entity – The first step in starting a new business is selecting whether it will be a sole proprietorship, joint venture, “S” or “C” corporation, LLC (limited liability company) or other entity.

Business Purchases – Asset purchases, stock purchases and franchise agreements all require careful analysis of the practical and legal implications of purchasing an on-going business.

Buy – Sell Agreements – It is important to establish agreements that cover business succession issues such as partner buy-outs or the death of an owner before the situation arises.

Employment Contracts, Non-Compete and Trade Secret Agreements – Protecting your business organization’s legal rights is especially important when you are part of an industry where there are trade secrets, copyright issues, or costly consequences for not having comprehensive legal agreements.

Employee Manuals and Policies – Having clear-cut employee manuals and guidelines benefits everyone involved. A perceptive attorney can help anticipate potential labor problems or policy loopholes.

Government Regulation – With the complex, ever-changing government regulation of business organizations, it is important to work with a lawyer who stays current with the rules governing your industry.

Contracts and Leases – Careful review of contracts and leases by a competent attorney can save costly litigation down the road.
