All Businesses Are Legal Entities | Protect Yours with Effective Representation

Business ownership is one of the most exciting, and rewarding, ways to make a living. As a business owner, it is tempting to focus exclusively on the specific product or service that is offered and ignore all the “extra” activities that are required. You must keep in mind, however, that businesses are legal entities and must be treated as such. Having an attorney who you can contact to help with the various legal requirements will help allow you to focus on the part of your business you love.

Norton Pelt can provide you with legal advice for your business, and much more. When you work with us, we can offer many legal services, including these:

  • Entity Formation – We will help you to decide whether an LLC, corporation, partnership or other legal entity is the best form for your business.  We can then draft and file all of the proper documents. 
  • Contracts – Our team can craft effective contracts that will help to protect your interests. We can also review contracts from other companies to ensure your rights are protected.  
  • Litigation – If you are in business long enough, litigation is virtually unavoidable. Standing up for your rights is an important part of business ownership.
  • Collections – Collecting the money owed to your business will help ensure your success. We can help ensure the collection laws are followed and you get the money you are owed.
  • Mechanic’s Liens – Mechanic’s liens can be an important legal option for ensuring you are compensated for the services you provide. We’ll help to get them in place right away.
  • Garnishments – Filing a garnishment to collect on a judgment may be necessary, and we can help.
