SMALL BUSINESS & ENTREPRENEURS

 

A commercial law firm must be able to provide small businesses with effective and nimble solutions within a reasonable budget.

Small Business Solutions

The Nissenbaum Law Group represents a significant number of small businesses. Some of them come to the firm after having been up and running for years, and others before they even make it off the drawing board.

The biggest challenge facing most such ventures is that they are undercapitalized. To address this reality, the Nissenbaum Law Group works with its clients to find creative and cost-effective solutions.

The Nissenbaum Law Group typically can offer small businesses the following services through an alternative flat fee structure.

  • Forming and registering the entity in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Texas;
  • Obtaining the tax identification number for the entity;
  • Drafting corporate bylaws or an operating agreement for the new entity;
  • Drafting a set of organizational resolutions for the initial action by the limited liability company’s members or the corporation’s board of directors;
  • Issuing membership certificates for a limited liability company or shares for a corporation;
  • Completing the ownership ledger;
  • At the client’s request, providing a new business checklist that outlines a non-exclusive list of issues that most new businesses need to address

The firm charges hourly billable legal fees for most of the other services it provides. However, it is also flexible in working within the client’s financial limitations. For example, in appropriate circumstances, the firm can provide a discounted billable structure tailored to the client’s needs. Some of the legal services the firm offers in the area of advising business entrepreneurs include:

  • Drafting corporate bylaws or an operating agreement for the new entity;
  • Filing copyrights and trademarks to protect the business’s intellectual property;
  • Preparing customer agreements, distributor agreements, website terms and conditions and Privacy policies;
  • Preparing employment agreements, manuals and surrounding documentation;
  • Assisting with collection of small accounts receivable;
  • Reviewing financing documentation for commercial loans;
  • Providing general commercial law advice and guidance.
