Starting, Buying or Selling Your Business or Franchise
If you are starting up a new business, or buying or selling an existing business, you need an experienced attorney in your corner before you put your name on the dotted line! Many people do not fully grasp the huge potential cost of signing a lease, for example. Often times, signing a short 3 year lease for a 1,500 square foot space creates potential debt of over $100,000.00! There may be many provisions contained in that lease which would make it unwise to sign it - and that is where our office steps in - to review it and point out to you those provsions and whether or not we can negotiate away from them.
