Skilled Legal Guidance For Business Transactions
Transactions are a crucial component of any business. When a business transaction goes wrong, or a dispute arises, it can cost a business valuable time and money. Having a lawyer on your side to assist with business transactions can help ensure that your operations continue to run smoothly.
At John Edwards Law Group, LLC, our attorneys bring more than 70 years of combined experience to legal matters. Our firm’s founder is a businessman himself, owning and operating numerous business ventures over the years. This experience provides us with a unique insight into the challenges that businesses face and the needs of our clients.
Help With A Wide Range Of Transactional Matters
Owning and operating your own business puts you in a position of authority. With this authority comes responsibility. When decisions need to be made, your employees will look to you. Knowing what to expect and how to proceed can be invaluable to the continued growth and operation of your business venture. We handle transactional work in three critical areas for Georgia businesses:
General business reporting obligations: IRS auditors expect you to account for the use of your money, time and resources at the end of each fiscal year. Retaining the services of an attorney and, when necessary, an accountant can save you the hassle of year-end reporting and enable you to manage tax-break opportunities proactively.
Contract negotiations: No successful business runs on a handshake and a smile. Every business relies on the good faith performance of the terms as outlined in a contract. A well-crafted agreement should explain when payments are to be made, to whom, for how much and what should happen in the event of a breach.
Employee hirings and dismissals: A significant portion of what a business trades on is goodwill. It is essential to secure the loyalty of your employees and your sales force through the strategic use of noncompete and nondisclosure agreements. An employment contract can further specify the terms for compensation and performance review and may be tailored to suit each employee on a case-by-case basis.
