Northeast Tarrant County, Texas Business Law and Contracts Attorney

Jefferson Law Office, PLLC can guide you through the process of forming a corporation or a limited liability company (LLC) and help ensure that you properly capitalize the company, observe legal formalities and execute the necessary documents and agreements. If you do not properly establish the entity, the liability protection offered by the corporation or LLC could be lifted and you might be held personally liable for claims against the corporation or LLC, a concept often known as "piercing the corporate veil." This is not a risk worth taking - contact us to make sure that you are properly shielded from the risks of running a business.

Protecting Your Business Assets

Many companies that fail to protect their intellectual property by requiring employees to sign non-disclosure and/or non-compete agreements risk future loss of the benefit from their endeavor. It is important to protect the ownership of all of the company's creative work and intellectual property, including inventions, patents, trade secrets, trademarks and copyrights. We can help you protect your creative works and in the case of patents and inventions we can assist you in securing a competent patent attorney.

Contracts: Where an Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure

Properly drafted agreements or contracts can protect you in several ways. First they can prevent misunderstandings that can lead to legal problems. Second they can limit your exposure to lawsuits and damages. Third they can set forth conditions so that your performance can be excused on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain events. Attorneys at Jefferson Law Office, PLLC can draft your contract or review your third party contracts to help determine potential problem areas and prepare the proper amendments. Clarity in agreements helps to avoid lawsuits.

Business Succession Planning

In small businesses, the death, disability, illness, retirement, voluntary departure or involuntary termination of a key person can be devastating to the business. Without a succession plan in place the company's own survival may be in jeopardy. We can help advise you as to how best to address these contingencies. We can prepare a buy-sell agreement, shareholders agreement or an employment agreement to address your specific concerns.
