Business Formation in Fairfax
The decision to form a business can be an exciting new venture but the legality behind it can be quite complicated. The first step is to choose a business structure that is right for your new business. Once your business structure is selected, our attorneys help by preparing foundational documentation such as articles of incorporation, bylaws, and resolutions. We also help draw up business agreements such as shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements, independent contractor agreements as well as nondisclosure/non-compete agreements.
For any business to grow successful transactions are imperative. Our Fairfax business law attorneys create and negotiate business transactions such as commercial real estate purchases, mergers and acquisitions, asset and stock purchase agreements, licensing agreements and joint ventures.
Contract disputes, lease and real estate disputes, employment disputes, collection actions, and insurance disputes are just a handful of business disputes that might arise. Our Fairfax business law attorneys have a proven track record of successful cases in both state, federal, and appellate court. Our attorneys recommend an alternative dispute resolution such as arbitration or mediation as litigation can be costly, however, they are prepared to advocate on your behalf.
