Protecting You and Your Business

Whether you need help in various legal issues or your business is now facing a lawsuit, Business Law Group, LLC has an experienced Lake Bluff business attorney to provide you with the most favorable legal solution possible.

There is a myriad of laws that you need to follow when running a business. Consequently, you will face various situations that will legally impact your business, whether for good or bad. Acquiring the assistance of an expert business lawyer is a strategic way of keeping your business compliant and functional.

At Business Law Group, LLC, the following are some of the areas where we can offer our knowledge and expertise:

Entity Formation

We will provide legal counsel to help you in your start-up phase, leading you to decide what type of entity to form and let you understand why it is the best type for your specific business.

Since you have a lot of options to choose from, we will make sure that we go through several key factors together in order to arrive at the best possible choice. Some of these factors include liability concerns, taxation issues, the number of owners, the type of business being performed, and some other variables.

Governance Documents

These documents need to be drafted once your business entity has been formed. This is to effectively control the business operation, including the rights and obligations of the owners. Governance documents come in various forms such as by-laws, shareholder’s agreements, operating agreements, and partnership agreements.

Although these documents can be very basic for businesses with only one owner, they can also be very complex when there are many owners, different classes of ownership, and structures that consider the desire of different levels of investors.

Our business attorneys can help you draft these governance documents, ensuring that current circumstances and relationships between the owners will be considered as well as how these relationships will possibly evolve in the future.

Corporate Compliance

Complying with the Illinois Secretary of State’s annual filing requirements is one of the basic things you need to do as instructed by the state. Business Law Group, LLC can handle all the necessary preparations and the actual filing procedure.

This will ensure that your annual reports will be regularly filed in a timely manner and that your business stays compliant with every regulation imposed by the Illinois Secretary of State.

Aside from that, our business attorney will also make sure that your corporate record books will be up-to-date and in compliance with state regulations. They should contain all necessary documents, including annual meeting minutes, shareholder actions, and direct actions.

Employment Issues

Illinois has laws that control every aspect of the employment process. From the application phase to the termination phase, there are state laws that you need to keep in mind.

Our business attorneys are skilled in addressing employment issues before, during, and after they arise. We can help you draft employee handbooks, tailor employment agreements, and give counsel on any specific employment concern that affects your business. We will thoroughly assess the issue and come up with the best possible solution to address it properly.

Contract Issues

Business Law Group, LLC is experienced in reviewing different contracts and giving counsel to our clients in line with their rights and obligations as stated in their existing contracts. We can also draft new contracts, revise contracts, and guide our clients on the key negotiation points that need to be raised with the other parties before executing the contract.

With our business attorneys working alongside you, you will always have a thorough understanding of all the key terms in a contract and be assured that your rights are protected.

General Counsel

Aside from the above-mentioned issues, there are still a variety of legal concerns that a business can encounter every day. Business Law Group, LLC is here to ensure that you understand the significance of all the legal decisions you are about to make.

We provide general counsel to businesses in any industry, giving expert advice on a wide range of legal issues. We can guide you to make a well-informed decision and avoid the costly and time-consuming process of litigation.

Some of the important legal decisions that we can help with include employment decisions, contract interpretations, business negotiations, and other key business decisions involving legal issues. More importantly, we provide this service with only a flat monthly fee for you to pay for.
