Business and corporate services include:

Business Formation
Starting a small business, startup or nonprofit, while exciting, can be an overwhelming and complex process.

Many entrepreneurs do not realize the potential legal issues involved in starting a business.

You need to know what type of entity to form for tax and liability purposes, how to correctly register and incorporate your business and how to draft bylaws, articles of incorporation, and/or shareholder and partnership agreements.

Our firm can advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of forming a partnership versus forming a corporation or limited liability company.  Jon Adler is experienced in business entity formation, and can help navigate the challenging process of getting your new company up and running, and allow you to focus on actually running your new business, startup or nonprofit organization.

Whether your company is newly formed or well-established, effective written agreements are necessary to protect your rights and interests. Attorney Jon Adler can help you review, draft, negotiate, and interpret employment contracts, contracts created to buy, sell, rent, or store goods, client agreements, shareholder and partnership agreements, or any other type of contract that may be required in the course of business.

Our contracts practice is not limited to representing corporate entities; we are available to represent individuals in contract formation, review, interpretation, and negotiation.

Labor and Employment
The Law Office of Jon M. Adler counsels businesses about their rights and obligations under the law from a preventative viewpoint, in an attempt to avoid future costly and protracted litigation. Our office firmly believes that prevention is the best policy.
