South Texas Small Business Attorney, Jim Ramón Law
Businesses who fail to plan should plan to fail. Establishing a business involves far more than deciding on a product or service to offer and opening the doors. Small businesses fuel economic growth and can create a lasting legacy. However, you should work with a small business attorney who is familiar with some of the following:
While it is important to have a written business plan in place, it is also important to have a plan in place for when you are no longer able to run the business. As part of your overall business planning, you will need to have a succession plan in place. We can help you develop a business plan suitable for submission for financing as well as ensure you have a succession plan in place.
Formation of Texas LLC
A limited liability corporation (LLC) in Texas can help protect your personal assets from liability associated with your business. However, the proper forms must be filed with the Secretary of State, you must confirm your business name is unique and an operating agreement must be established. Ramón Law Firm can help businesses prepare all the necessary documents for their LLC to ensure it complies with the laws of Texas.
Partnership agreements must be completely detailed in terms of each person’s business and financial obligations, what each partner’s voting rights are, how the partners will resolve disputes and what should occur in the event one partner withdraws from the partnership or should die. At Ramón Law Firm, we can help you structure a partnership agreement that is fair to everyone involved and accounts for every eventuality.
When you are involved in a business dispute, these disputes cost time, money and reputation. We can help by providing mediation which can often mean the dispute gets resolved faster and at far less cost.
