Yeti Law Can Advise you on all Matters Relating to Business Law
There are a number of ways in which your Legal Sherpa® can help you, both at the beginning, and throughout the life cycle of your business.
The structure of the business can have serious long-term impact on operations. You’ll need to understand the potential benefits, possible risks, and general implications of each business structure in order to find which best suits your goals. Your Legal Sherpa® has the knowledge and experience to guide you towards the most appropriate structure for your business.
Your corporation will need guidance to ensure that business operation is legally sound, and the actions of management and directors are transparent and free of any potential misdeed. Your Legal Sherpa® can guide you into compliance with governance regulations such as Bill 198, or the CSA’s NI 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuer’s Annual and Interim Filings.
Protecting Personal Assets from Business Creditors
Any business venture involves risk, and depending on the nature and the structure of the business you may even find your personal assets at risk. With the help of a trusted lawyer, you can mitigate the risk to your personal assets should debt or liability become an issue. Your Legal Sherpa® can help you determine precisely what’s at risk, and can offer guidance as to how best to minimize that risk.
Contracts and Other Ongoing Legal Needs
Since there are many ongoing legal requirements even after business formation, it is important to work with an experienced corporate lawyer that you can see yourself working with into the future as your company grows and the legal implications grow with it. There are countless ongoing legal needs such as contract drafting and review, intellectual property concerns, zoning issues and employee termination to name just a few. Forming a close relationship with a lawyer you trust is a must.
The Acquisition and Sale of a Business
An experienced corporate lawyer like your Legal Sherpa® can assist with the negotiation of the sale of your own company or the acquisition of another company. Your Legal Sherpa® is trained, experienced, and most of all passionate about your business.
Anticipating the Issues That May Arise
As a business owner and entrepreneur, it is wise to prepare for potential problems that may arise. With the help and guidance of a knowledgeable corporate lawyer, you can attempt to proactively avoid problems whenever possible. If the problem is unavoidable, an experienced lawyer is an invaluable problem solver.
Should you ever find yourself under investigation, or struggling against a claim brought against your business by a government agency, your Legal Sherpa® will be there working diligently on your behalf.
