If you own or manage a business, you make decisions every day that carry legal implications. Large corporations have in-house counsel and whole legal departments. Smaller businesses typically don't have the resources for that level of support, but their legal needs are no less important.
At Ash Street Law, we advise Wisconsin businesses on transactions at every stage of the business life cycle, from entity selection to to the sale or dissolution of a business. Our clients have included hotels, restaurants, and retail and service establishments in Baraboo and throughout Sauk County and the surrounding region.
The first decision any business owner needs to make is how to structure the business. Your choice of sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, or corporation, affects how your business will operate going forward. Entity selection affects tax obligations, liability exposure, and expenses, among other issues. It is always best to work with a trusted firm that knows your goals and can help you select, and establish, the business entity to best achieve them.
Your business attorney can also guide you as to hiring and employee issues, zoning and land use laws, and environmental issues that can affect your business. A business attorney's most important function may be helping you avoid liability and maximize opportunities so that your business can grow and succeed. At Ash Street Law, we help you understand the potential implications of various actions so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
Most businesses enter into numerous contracts that dictate the terms of their relationships with landlords, suppliers, clients, and others. We negotiate, draft and review contracts with meticulous attention to detail to minimize the risk of disputes down the road. In the event a conflict does arise, we are available to help you resolve it so that you can devote your resources and attention to what matters: the success of your business.
If you are a business owner, you want an attorney who is as committed to helping your business thrive and protecting your bottom line as you are. Attorney Nancy Thome has over two decades of experience representing Wisconsin businesses. She believes in cultivating long-term working relationships with clients so that she can help them resolve not only the legal issue at hand, but to plan for a successful future.
We invite you to contact Ash Street Law to discuss the needs of your business or to schedule a consultation. We look forward to working with you.
