Business Startups And Transactions
“Well begun is half done.” No place is that saying truer than in business. If you are planning to start a business, you will be facing some of your most important legal decisions before you open your door on the first day. One of the most important will be selecting the correct form of entity for growth, liability protection and taxes.
We are the business law attorneys of Showalter Law Firm, in Richmond and Fredericksburg, Texas. Over the years, we have helped numerous business owners in the Greater Houston area successfully fulfill their dream of owning and operating their own businesses.
We Start By Listening
We start every relationship with our clients by asking the right questions and listening. Most people going into business will tell you their primary goal is to make money. Of course, it is. But making sure you protect your assets as your business grows should also be an important consideration. Whether you (and your partners) choose to incorporate yourself as an S-corporation, a partnership, a sole proprietorship, a limited liability company or one of many other types of tax structures, it will impact your personal exposure.
Our small business transaction services include:
- Business startups
- Shareholder agreements
- Contracts drafted, reviewed and revised
- Employment agreements
- Commercial real estate lease agreements
- Mergers and acquisitions fiduciary oversight
Before you start filling out the paperwork to start or purchase a business, it makes sense to talk to an experienced lawyer. Start by calling us to schedule a meeting. We can be reached at our offices in Richmond at or by email.
