How well-considered legal input can contribute to business success

Oregon business principals in Portland and across the state are typically proactive, creative and forward-looking individuals. They have to be, given the parameters of the American commercial universe.

Business beckons all kinds of people, but puts a high bar on success. The realm is replete with both challenges and opportunities. Would-be entrepreneurs who fail to resolutely do their homework from the outset of their business plan will likely succumb to the former. Those who faithfully do their due diligence, and continue to implement smart strategies as their ideas bear fruit, are often able to profitably exploit the latter.

That might sound simple and flatly intuitive, but it’s not, of course. From inception to a potential business succession or company demise decades down the road, company owners and key decision makers deal intimately with complexities that can span seemingly endless subject matter.

Many of those concerns closely link with legal considerations. Business formation, for example, is centrally about matters that touch upon risk analysis/liability and tax implications.

And once a business is formed (following key determinations concerning company type, business goals, foundational contracts to be drafted and executed, financing and myriad other matters), business-law interplay continues.

Notably, it does so daily and across virtually every sphere of company operations. Following are merely some representative examples of areas where proven legal counsel can identify risks, spotlight opportunities, protect business principals and help to optimally promote their best interests:

  • Employee matters (hiring, contracts, rules/policies, disputes and more)
  • Regulatory compliance (e.g., permits and licenses)
  • Real estate concerns (including lease/buy decisions and investments)
  • Business opportunity (mergers, franchising and many other possibilities)
  • Dispute resolution and litigation

We duly stress to business owners and entrepreneurs on our legal website that “important legal decisions could impact your rights, your obligations and, ultimately, your bottom line.”

Experienced business lawyers routinely work closely with diverse and valued business clients to craft winning strategies and optimal outcomes in complex commercial matters.
