MANAGING YOUR OPERATIONS
Legal Advice for Your Business
Let’s face it … running a business is a complex affair. Most entrepreneurs are great in the ideas department – in developing and selling their products or services. Where many entrepreneurs struggle is to stay on top of all the legal requirements and regulations that affect the ongoing operation of their businesses.
Every business has to deal with a whole host of municipal, provincial, and federal requirements, including licenses, permits, taxation policies, and enabling legislation, to name a few. There are also a number of stringent standards and regulations respecting your employees, to provide a safe workplace environment.
Virtually every aspect of your business will require some sort of contract or agreement in order to facilitate the smooth conduct of your operation. Consider just a few of the types of agreements you may need to enter into, including agreements with:
- Service Providers
- Landlords and Property Managers
- Banks and other Lenders
- Leasing Companies (for property and equipment for example)
Protect Your Assets
When the average person thinks of assets, things like property, inventory, machinery, and equipment come to mind. However, from a legal perspective, a business owns significantly more assets than strictly brick and mortar kinds of items – both tangible and some intangible. Some of these important assets also include:
- Business Name
- Accounts Receivable
- Licensing Agreements
- Customer Acquisition Lists
- Intellectual property such as patents and trademarks
From this quick list alone, we see that all of these assets are valuable – and in some cases critical – to successful operation of your business. Of course, the risk with any of these assets (particularly the less tangible ones), is that they may be lost, stolen, or in some other way compromised. This is where the value of properly prepared, well-written agreements is highly visible.
We have the legal expertise to help protect your valuable business assets by ensuring you have all necessary contracts, business agreements, and licenses in place, including things like:
- Employment Agreements
- Confidentiality Agreements
- Non-Solicitation Agreements
- Business Name Registration
- Non-Competition Agreements
- Equipment and other Asset Leases
- Financing and Security Agreements
Our business is to provide solid, timely, affordable legal advice and services to businesses like yours.
