When you start your business, you are faced with many different questions. Should it be a sole proprietorship, a corporation, or a partnership? What is an LLC? Am I liable for additional taxes? Do I need a fictitious name certificate or an operating agreement? And many more.
Answering these questions correctly is absolutely vital to the success of your operation. Doing it early on in the process is smart business. That's why sound legal advice should be high on your list of priorities.
Making and following a sound plan of action can save you time, money and frustration, and it can set you up for success. We can help you get off on the right foot.
But who wants to put all of that work into starting a business, only to lose it to a an unanticipated lawsuit, or a notice about unpaid taxes? Most large companies have one or more attorneys on staff, designated as general counsel. Their only job is to make sure the company remains protected.
Smaller businesses often do not have the resources to hire business counsel full-time, but that does not mean that you should leave your business unprotected.
Ashton Law Office in Roanoke offers you another option. We offer our services by subscription to local businesses as outside general counsel, providing responsive legal counsel for companies who have a need, but who are not in a position to employ an attorney full-time.
Better yet, we offer a tiered system tailored to your company's needs. All tiers have a specific number of hours per month of attorney time allocated for your company's use for general legal projects, whether it's answering your legal questions, researching, or drafting and reviewing contracts. All tiers also include an initial evaluation and periodic assessment of your company's legal needs.
The basics of our system are as follows:
Clients are able to roll over limited hours from month-to-month. Additional hours during a given month may be available. Please contact us for additional details. Also, note that the services offered under this package do not include litigation or large transactions.
