Business and Corporate Law
Chapp Law Firm, PC - Southeast Michigan Business Law Attorneys
Greater Detroit Tax Planning, Franchising, Business Formation Advice
If you need knowledgeable and experienced Michigan business formation counsel or contract law advice from lawyers who respect your need for efficiency, contact the Southeast Michigan business and corporate lawyers at Chapp Law Firm, PC.
We're especially effective advising the new and emerging business entity on topics ranging from corporate organization, personnel policies, and business planning. Our Detroit corporate attorneys will help you find the proper corporate or partnership form to suit your business model and management style. For a new entity, your choice of business type is of paramount importance. Issues such as liability protection, tax treatment and management structure are all determined by your choice of business organization. Entity choice also controls the authority and power of the board of directors, managers, and shareholders or members. Many future problems may be avoided with careful planning of your entity type and with thoughtful drafting of your organizational charters, bylaws, member agreements, and any other documents necessary for your organizational form. If you need guidance on business succession or business dissolution issues, we can also advise you.
While we are not primarily courtroom lawyers, we can provide valuable litigation support services to our business and corporate clients. We can cooperate with your corporate or commercial litigation lawyers if you find your company engaged in a civil lawsuit, thereby saving you significant trial preparation expenses.
We can help your business with nearly all of its legal needs, especially the following:
- Business Formation - Corporations, Partnerships, LLC's
- Business and Tax Planning
- Investor and Shareholder Agreements
- Capital Expansion
- Michigan Employment Law and Personnel Policies
- Business and Employment Contracts
- Trade Secrets and Confidentiality Agreements
- Michigan Nonprofit Organizations
We also advise clients on all aspects of statutory and regulatory compliance, whether state, local, or federal. Our services in this area, together with more general Michigan business contract law advice, have proved especially useful for our franchising clients, such as local operators of national chain restaurants.
Our Detroit franchise law attorneys not only represent businesses and corporations throughout Southeast Michigan, we also work for national firms with Michigan business interests.
Perhaps most important for our Detroit-area small business and Michigan family business clients, we make sure that individual investors and managers are protected from personal liability. Our careful attention to your corporate organizational needs ensures that your business structure will not collapse under litigation pressure.
Many of our Greater Detroit estate planning, real estate, and traffic violations clients first came to rely on us for their business organization and contract needs. If you would like more information about our services, contact the Southeast Michigan business law attorneys of Chapp Law Firm, PC.
