General Business Contracts

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 help create it on your behalf to make sure there are no unfavorable terms, and that the important elements are negotiated before execution. Our office can assist you in drafting and reviewing general business contracts including consulting agreements, independent contractor agreements, leases, business purchase and sale agreements, corporate minutes or LLC resolutions, private loan documents, and any other business related document that may arise.

Business Entity Formations

If you are starting a new business, or intending to purchase a property for investment purposes, it is important to select the correct entity for your needs, and to limit your personal liability. Our office will ensure that your business if 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. Attorney Peterson can advise you in forming your new LLC or corporation and explain the differences between entity choices to ensure you select the right option for your needs.
