Business Formation and Entity Selection
If you’re planning on starting a business in San Diego, careful planning and structuring at the outset of the process is critical to the long-term success of the entity. The legal structure you select for your new organization will have lasting repercussions with regard to personal liability, the size of your workforce, the number of shareholders your company has, who will take responsibility for daily operations, how the business will be taxed, and other core components of the company.
The attorneys of Bellatrix PC have a sophisticated understanding of the financial advantages and limitations associated with each type of business structure. We will listen to your vision for your company and present you with a clear, straightforward assessment of the pros and cons of various structures.
Once an appropriate structure has been selected to suit your needs, we will assist you with the registration of your business, the review of commercial leases, your compliance with zoning and environmental laws, and other key points to go over when first opening for business.
Drafting and Negotiating Contracts and Agreements
Contracts and agreements form the backbone of all commercial transactions and employment matters. Whether you need to hire an employee, expand to a new location, or protect your trademarks and intellectual property, concise and enforceable contracts are integral to financial success. The contract attorneys of Bellatrix PC are tenacious, aggressive negotiators, and will take all measures necessary to protect your business from agreeing to any clauses or stipulations which could ultimately harm your company’s bottom line.
Many employers and entrepreneurs are surprised to learn that oral contracts can be legally binding. Oral contracts should always be avoided in favor of hard written documents, which can be referred to as evidence in the event of a future contract dispute or alleged breach of contract. Because template agreements inevitably lack the depth and nuance afforded by custom contracts, we will prepare tailored contracts that provide a detailed, comprehensive framework, clearly defining your expectations and obligations in each transaction and deal you embark on.
Commercial Debt Collection in San Diego
No business can be expected to thrive to the fullest when deprived of compensation for services which have already been rendered, or goods which have already been produced and delivered. Protracted delays in payment can bring productivity grinding to a halt, compromise your other business relationships, and create real financial risk for fledgling companies with limited resources. Our attorneys will help you explore various means of commercial debt collection, so that you can make an efficient recovery and get back on track in your daily operations.
Depending on the nature of the debt and the circumstances under which it arose, it may be possible to obtain repayment through means such as wage garnishment, commercial liens, or bank account levies. We are prepared to take your debtor to court to obtain – and enforce – a judgment by any means necessary, even if litigation becomes necessary. We hold ourselves to high standards for fair and ethical commercial debt collection practices, but are unafraid to take aggressive measures to protect and exercise your rights as a creditor.
If you’re a business owner in San Diego and have questions about any aspect of your company at all – whether it’s about compliance with the tax code, advertising rules in California, or how to keep corporate minutes – Bellatrix PC is here to assist and advise you.
