Business Law

It takes more than just a good idea to make a business successful. It takes a great deal of hard work to develop and implement a successful business strategy. The chances of success are increased when business leaders partner with an experienced attorney.

At the Haskett Law Firm, P.C., we use years of experience and in-depth knowledge to provide a number of services to small and medium-sized businesses throughout the Bay Area, including:

  • Structuring and forming businesses
  • Business incorporation
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Employment issues
  • Annual filings as required by law
  • Contract negotiation and drafting
  • Resolution of business disputes/business litigation
  • Partnership dissolution

We assist entrepreneurs, business leaders and franchisees with matters related to many different business structures. From corporations, to partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs), each structure has different needs and faces different requirements under California state laws.

The type of entity you choose can have a significant effect on your business. It can affect the way your business is taxed and, ultimately, how it profits. It can also affect your liability for financial losses.

If you anticipate starting your own business, we can advise you on the type of entity to choose and form the company’s legal structure from start to finish. We assist employers with lease negotiations and workers’ compensation issues. We also counsel our clients with respect to business operations and corporate document maintenance. We can advise you on legal issues regarding day-to-day business operation and in the preparation of your employee handbook.

The Haskett Law Firm strives to counsel business owners to prevent problems before they arise and to provide proactive solutions to anticipated legal problems. If necessary, we also assist in the sale and dissolution of entities.
