Small Business Matters

At Bloomgren Hanson Legal, we enjoy working with small business owners with a variety of issues.  Small businesses need trusted legal advice just as much as large corporations. As a small business owner, you face daily issues involving real estate and leases, employees, vendors, contracts, insurance, and other policies and procedures. Unlike the large corporation, you have a limited budget to work with and each legal issue can have a more profound impact. At Bloomgren Hanson Legal we look forward to taking a proactive approach to your business dealings and assisting you to head off legal problems before they arise.

Business start-ups and entity formation. You have an idea for a business that you have put considerable time and thought into it, and now it is time to make your idea a reality. For most businesses you need to incorporate by creating a separate entity that recognized by the state in order to do business. There are several different types of entities you can choose from, including corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs). Each has their strengths and weaknesses in various situations. At Bloomgren Hanson Legal we can help you decide whether to incorporate and, if so, what the benefits of each type of entity are. This will help you to make an informed and confident decision about the type of entity you choose.

Business succession planning: Planning for the transition of a family owned business is imperative for business owners. We have experience  in drafting buy-sell agreements and helping business owners develop and implement plans for the future of their businesses. We help our clients make and implement important decisions such as who will take over, how assets will be divided if the business is sold, and how to give each child the desired distribution of the assets. We will explore all of your options and alternatives and protect your interests in the business succession planning process.

  • Document drafting and review
  • Employee Handbooks
  • Employment contracts or contractor agreements
  • Real estate or lease agreements
