Business Law


Every day we enter into contracts whether we are aware of it or not. In the business context, contracts are vital to the day to day operations, but can often be extremely complicated and verbose. It is essential to have an attorney review a contract before you sign it, or to create it on your behalf, to make sure there are no unfavorable terms, and the important elements are negotiated before execution. Our office can assist you in drafting and reviewing general business contracts including consulting agreements, joint venture agreements, leases, business operating documents, property purchase and sale agreements, easements, license agreements, and any other business related document that may arise.

General Business

Whether you are starting a new business, leasing property, or purchasing property, it is important to select the correct business entity for your needs, and to limit your personal liability. Our office will ensure that your business is formed correctly from inception, and that the operating documents contain all the essential terms to prevent any unforeseen events that could potentially occur in the future. We can also assist you in maintaining your business entity records, and ensure you comply with all filing requirements under the California Secretary of State whether it be a limited liability company, partnership, or corporation. Ms. Peterson has published articles on the new California Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act, and can counsel you on the changes in the law that went into effect on January 1, 2014, as well as assist you with updating your operating agreement for existing LLC’s that were formed prior to January 1, 2014.
