When You Should Consider Hiring a Georgia Corporate Attorney

If you are considering getting legal help, there are several signs you should look out for. One of the most common reasons to hire our corporate attorneys is when you are starting a business and need help setting up an LLC, corporation, or any other structure. Our team can provide the valuable insights you need to ensure the efficient structuring of your business, ultimately saving you time and money in the long run.

Another reason to consider hiring an attorney is if you are involved in a lawsuit and need legal representation. In some cases, a business partner or associate breached a duty they were required to fulfill, or a contract was breached. We can help you defend cases where you have been accused of questionable business practices.

Additionally, if you are planning to start a new venture but do not know how to do it legally, we can help. For instance, if you want to open a new retail store or restaurant, you need to do several things before opening day, such as obtaining permits from various agencies like the fire department or building department and registering with Georgia state agencies like the Department of Labor and the Department of Revenue.

We pride ourselves on working directly with all types of businesses. From individual business owners to multinational companies, our team is here to help you resolve any corporate issues your business is facing.

Types of Services Our Corporate Attorneys Offer in Georgia

Our team can help manage a wide variety of corporate matters. With our knowledge and experience, we can help you meet whatever challenge you have. The following are some of the services our team provides in Georgia:

Drafting Contracts

The way your business contracts are prepared plays a crucial role in determining their success. An efficiently drafted contract can help establish the terms with employees, customers, contractors, shareholders, and other business partners. However, if there are errors or loopholes in the contract, it might be used against you at some point, putting your business at risk.

Moreover, in the event that the other party breaches the contract, we can help you file a lawsuit against them. Breach of contract typically occurs when there is a failure to deliver, failure to pay, or a violation of the terms and conditions outlined in the contract, like failing to pay or make delivery.

By taking legal action against the other party, you can potentially get damages in the form of “liquidated damages,” which is a predetermined amount that both parties agreed to in the contract.

Alternatively, the court could order damages for the money spent on replacement services and damages that were a consequence of the breach. In other cases, specific performance might be ordered, requiring the defendant to deliver your goods or execute the specific act the contract required that they did not complete.

Collecting Debts

Corporations occasionally provide funding or loans to other parties, with the expectation of being repaid in the future. However, debtors might not always stick to the agreed-upon payment schedule, whether because of circumstances beyond their control or simply because they refuse to pay.

If the debtor is struggling because of uncontrollable circumstances, our team can work with both parties to develop a plan that benefits each side. This approach can help reduce any negative feelings between your business and the debtor, which is important if you plan to work with them again in the future. We find that a cooperative approach often encourages the debtor to be more willing to pay off the money you are owed.

Dissolving Corporations

When a company dissolves without merging with another, it is often a chaotic process. The company’s assets, including inventory, equipment, and facilities, typically need to be sold off.

Additionally, shareholders are eager to cash out and receive any benefits from their shares. This can lead to various legal disputes over sale proceeds and claims from creditors. If you are considering dissolving your business, our team can help you identify any potential liabilities and negotiate settlements with your business partners.

Overseeing Mergers and Acquisitions

Corporations often merge or acquire another business for its financial benefit. In many cases, a large corporation will acquire a smaller one.

However, there are various ways in which corporations can merge. For instance, “triangle” mergers involve two businesses merging with a third one, which was formed to absorb the original two corporations.

Mergers and acquisitions tend to be highly complex, requiring a great deal of input from both corporations’ attorneys. As such, each is unique and requires a detailed and specific approach. Our team is ready to help you conduct a successful merger or acquisition for your corporation.

Managing Risk

Our team can also help you identify and evaluate the risks that your company might face. We will work closely with you to develop a plan to avoid these risks so that your business does not needlessly take a financial hit.

We can also help you review and assess your current business plan to identify any potential gaps or shortcomings that could impact your business’s long-term sustainability. Our team can counsel you on many types of financial products, including insurance and reinsurance, that can protect your business.

Ensuring Regulatory Compliance

In Georgia, all companies, regardless of size, must abide by the laws and regulations that govern their industry. The penalties for violating business regulations can be serious, as these laws are intended to protect the public, employees, and the environment, among other things.

For instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for ensuring that companies provide a safe and healthy work environment for their employees. This includes implementing safety protocols, providing protective equipment, and regularly inspecting the workplace to identify and address potential hazards.

Similarly, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that prohibit discrimination in the workplace based on factors such as race, gender, age, religion, and disability. We can help ensure that your hiring practices are fair and unbiased and that your business is structured so that all of your employees have equal opportunities.
