JEFF JINKS LAW BUSINESS LAW AREAS
Your business is usually something you have worked on for your years or are looking to setup to create a legacy for yourself and your family. How to do you plan for new ownership if you’re looking to sell your company? What about adjusting or creating business legal structures? Are you reviewing the current documentation you currently have on your business and how it affects you both as an individual as well as the relationship to shareholders rights for ownership?
The below three areas are heavily mentioned on their own pages but we will go over some frequently asked questions business owners have when it comes to business law, sample situations ones that might arise under these three categories and how best to approach each.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT
The myriad issues surrounding commercial law are the laws that deal with agreements between people and their commercial affairs. Whether it’s through the formation of business entities financial concerns such as bankruptcy and how agency and power are used between shareholders, you as a business owner have to be aware of the pitfalls that could strike you as well as how you can work around obstacles to gain great success.
Let’s look at some common questions that come up when discussing business law:
Any contract has these essential four components to be considered enforceable: an offer’s been made, consideration has been given to one party from another, there’s mutual asset between the parties and the parties have acceptance to move on their contract forward. More on this in Contract Law.
Depending on your corporate structure, investors that have ownership may or may not enjoy certain privileges for their stock in the business in question due to hierarchy, the liquidity of the company and other factors.
Zoning and Land Use, Ownership Disputes, Property Tax Issues, Insurance and Surveys can all be key areas that property issues can surround. More in Property Issues.
A contract that is between the stakeholders of a company dictating but not limited to the corporate voting rights, asset distribution and rules if members wish to exit or be bought out.
Shielding intellectual protected property or keeping confidentiality between shareholders and employers are just a couple that arises in the negotiation of contract.
BUSINESS LAW AND THE TOPICS SURROUNDING IT.
Where Do You Start?
Employment contracts, vendors, financing. So many partners but where do you start? Both the business formation of your legal entity and how you continue your position with your business partners and the general public buying your goods or services depends on how you are set up legally. Consider looking at each of our sub practice areas in Business Law and look at how they can affect you personally and financially.

Why Contracts Are Important.
After creating your business entity, you want to know why you need contracts in place and how they fundamentally will make or break you in the short and long run.
Some examples of what contracts can do and enforce are (1) establish factors where each party states what they want to happen, (2) they determine the limited resources to buy, sell or use between one another and (3) can establish non-compete clauses to dissuade competition.
