Commercial Transitions

There are many legal considerations involved in running a business. From the idea of a business to the operation, and even to the sale, it requires a lot of legal support. Linkwell is here to help you get started, sustain your business, and be successful. We listen to your needs and use our extensive experience to help you minimize risks, solve your problems and ensure that your business runs smoothly.

Starting your Business

Starting a business is exciting but also tedious. You may have a good idea that you want to grow, or you may want to buy all or part of an existing business.

How you get started is very important, so getting business legal advice can steer you in the right direction. A business lawyer who listens to your ideas, goals, situations, and concerns can help you clarify the basics so you can build a successful business from a solid foundation. This includes looking at:

Which business structure is right for you - take into account your overall situation and business objectives; Your responsibilities and risks; And whether the trust structure can benefit you and minimize your tax liability

Make sure you have properly protected agreements from the start -- including bylaws, shareholder agreements (or partnership agreements), employment contracts, leasing agreements, and financing agreements.
