Personalized Business Law Services To Protect
Your business is meaningful. It provides support for the people you love and for the people it serves. You want to see it continue to provide that support beyond your lifetime.
Your legacy includes the work you do and how it supports your family, for many generations. You aren’t in business simply for the money, but for the impact you are leaving in the world. You want to do things the right way and know that everything has been taken care of, without you being the one to do it all.
You appreciate guidance from a trusted advisor who gets it. At Truest Law, we’re here to help!
Entity Formation & Maintenance
Forming your business entity is not a one-size-fits-all and is never handled in a vacuum.
Before we form your entity, we get to know you, what’s important to you, what your business is going to do in the world and how you plan to exit it. We ask you questions that will inform us of the tax structure of your entity, how you own the entity and what happens to your business entity when you pass on (or you pass the company on to a new owner).
For maintaining an entity, it’s all about the “nutrients of a business that is well cared for.
Over time, your business will change and grow; your ownership structure may change; we know for sure that the law will change.
Your business documents must accommodate all of these changes in order to make sure your business is on track for growth and continued success.
Once your business entity is incorporated and online with agreements, insurance, intellectual property planned for and protected, and financial systems filling the coffers, we shift the conversation away from set up to the all-important exit.
It’s not the first time we will have discussed it as all of our business setups are planned for based on your eventual exit plan, whether that is selling the business at a certain point, operating it for income as long as desired, or passing your business on upon your death.
We will have an ongoing conversation throughout your life and the life of your business.
We will explore together what can we do today to ensure your business can and will continue to serve you and your clients well whether you are on vacation, taking a health break, or when you pass it on to loved ones after you are gone.
In addition, through our unique legacy process, we will ensure you leave your loved ones a tangible expression of your love for them far beyond your money or even your business.
Agreements & Deals
Incorporating your business entity is just the very beginning – we help your business GROW!
You probably haven’t thought of your business like this, but it’s just a series of agreements:
- Agreements with investors or lenders
- Clients and vendors
- Employees and independent contractors
- Partners and customers
The success of your business depends on your ability to make agreements and seal the deal.
This is where most business owners struggle mightily, and we can help.
We love to create clear agreements and help you set boundaries and manage expectations. We know that the future of your business hinges on it.
That’s why we won’t simply incorporate your business and send you on your way.
From trademarks to copyrights and protection of your branding, systems, and processes, we will help you determine what really is protection-worthy with formal registration with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (or other international jurisdictions) and what can benefit from a simple, easy and free stake of your claim.
When you participate in one of our ongoing creative strategy business plans, we will regularly connect with you to discover new ideas that have cropped up, any new domains you might have registered, and new content you have created.
We will help you ensure it is all protected to the maximum extent that makes sense and that your ideas are safe and sound so you can make the most of them in the world.
Plus, if and when one of your trademarks or copyrights are infringed upon, we will make contact on your behalf — not in a traditional crabby lawyer way but in such a way that it opens up a dialogue and even the possibility for future collaboration.
