Employment Agreements

When your business finds success, you rarely have a choice in the matter: you will require the assistance of other labor in some form. Depending upon your circumstances, the best structure for hiring additional labor will vary. Choosing to hire an employee, an independent contractor or a consultant can often have drastically different implications and tax consequences.

Business Succession Planning

Insurance Agreements

Almost every business requires some form of insurance. We can provide you with the guidance and advice you need to make an informed decision as to the appropriate insurance. We are often called upon by our business clients to evaluate their current insurance programs and coverage and to identify areas of potential risk or exposure. We often see clients who believe they are insured by their policy for certain risks that the policy specifically excludes. You usually pay good money for insurance, and you should know what it is you are paying for. Faced with a significant loss or liability, having the right insurance can be the difference between sink or swim for your business.
