General business counsel duties typically include advising on compliance with local, state, and federal laws, risk management strategies, corporate governance, and employment law matters. By partnering with our team, businesses can proactively address these concerns, avoid potential litigation and fines, and maintain a favorable standing in the marketplace.

Our team usually communicates regularly with business leaders, helping them understand the nuances of their industry and providing tailored legal guidance. Whether your business needs advice on intellectual property laws or advice on the legal implications of marketing strategies, our attorneys can help chart a course that is right for your business.

Business Entity Formation

Choosing the right legal structure is a critical decision for any new business in Atlanta. Our attorneys can review your business plans to help determine what type of structure would fit your goals best.

After choosing the right business entity to form, you will better understand the potential tax implications, liability concerns, and future growth of the business. From sole proprietorships and partnerships to corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs), our attorneys can help clients understand the benefits and limitations of each entity type.

The process of forming a business typically involves drafting and filing the necessary legal documents, such as articles of incorporation or organization, bylaws, and operating agreements. Our team can help ensure these documents comply with Georgia state laws and accurately reflect your intentions and agreements.

Drafting and Review of Contracts and Agreements

Contracts and agreements are the bedrock upon which businesses operate. Our attorneys have years of experience drafting clear, enforceable contracts that protect our clients’ interests. This service covers a wide range of agreements, including but not limited to partnership agreements, service contracts, lease agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and employment contracts.

A key aspect of our service is our ability to tailor contracts to the specific needs and circumstances of the business, ensuring all provisions are legally sound and aligned with your objectives. This way, you can be sure you did not miss a loophole that could cost you later.

Additionally, we can review contracts proposed by other parties. We will identify potential risks, suggest modifications, and negotiate terms that better serve your interests.

Breach of Contract

Business contracts and legal agreements are the basis of all business operations. The contract sets out the responsibilities of everyone involved. Not all contracts are perfectly written, and it is difficult for a contract to anticipate every situation. A breach of contract is a failure to fulfill the duties and terms of an enforceable agreement that causes harm to the other party.

We will assess the merits of your claim and advise you on the best course of action. We will then work to resolve the dispute in a way that minimizes your damages. In some cases, this means negotiating a settlement. In others, it might take a lawsuit to recover what you are owed.

Handling a breach of contract almost always involves a thorough investigation of your agreement’s terms and gathering evidence of the alleged breach. Our goal is to resolve disputes efficiently, thereby preserving your business relationships when possible and securing compensation for any losses you incurred as a result of the breach.

Commercial Transactions

Our attorneys can also help facilitate a wide range of commercial transactions, from preliminary negotiations to the final closing. We often play a crucial role in negotiating terms that protect clients’ interests, drafting agreements that accurately reflect these terms, and advising on the potential impacts of specific contractual obligations.

We can draft and review various documents, including purchase agreements, lease agreements, and partnership agreements, ensuring all provisions are clear and enforceable.

Our team can also use its resources to verify the accuracy of transactional documents and compliance with any applicable laws. This includes reviewing financial records, assessing your liabilities, and ensuring that intellectual property rights are secured.

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation involves many types of disputes. For instance, internal conflicts within partnerships or among shareholders can severely disrupt business operations.

Our attorneys have years of experience resolving these disputes. Some disagreements can be solved through mediation or arbitration, while other arguments will need to be sorted out in court. Either way, we can help show how the partnership agreement or corporate bylaws were violated while maintaining the integrity and continuity of the business.

In the digital age, protecting intellectual property (IP) has also become paramount. Our team knows how to assist businesses in enforcing their IP rights when infringements occur. This includes litigating against unauthorized use of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets.

Domestication of a Judgment in Georgia

If you have obtained a court judgment against a debtor in another state, chances are you can domesticate that judgment here in Georgia. Nothing is more frustrating than having to file a lawsuit against a debtor for non-payment of a debt. Much less being forced to file another lawsuit again if the debtor moves to another state. Fortunately, that is where the Uniform Domestication of Judgment Act comes in.

Mechanic’s Liens

Georgia has very strong mechanic’s lien laws, but they have very strict deadlines. The first deadline is to file within 90 days of your last work on the job. After that, in order to perfect your lien, you have to file a lawsuit within one year from the time you file your lien.

Our team often works with contractors and suppliers to get paid for the services they rendered and materials supplied by filing and enforcing mechanic’s liens. Our team can guide you through the complex requirements for filing a mechanic’s lien.

Apart from filing a mechanic’s lien, our attorneys can also represent clients in actions to enforce such liens, which includes negotiating a resolution or filing a lawsuit if the dispute cannot be resolved.

Additionally, we will help you understand the regulatory landscape. This way, you can recover your debts while ensuring that collections practices comply with state and federal laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

When necessary, we will not hesitate to litigate on behalf of our clients to obtain judgments against debtors, making sure to balance the aggressive pursuit of what is owed with the impact on your business reputation.
