Business Law

The late Steve Jobs said “Deciding what NOT to do is as important as deciding what to do” and we whole-heartedly agree. Careful planning and attention to detail is essential when beginning & running a business, so that you can avoid potential litigation or regulatory issues or additional financial vulnerabilities. Our partners are able to provide comprehensive services to small business owners and corporations, start to finish….to see how Appleby Healy can best serve you, we offer a free initial consultation.

If you have plans to launch a new business or even if you are already operating informally, Appleby Healy can advise in laying the needed foundations for success. We can help form an LLC (limited liability company), corporation, or partnership and our firm can walk you through considerations in entity selection and startup, such as taxation, capitalization, liability protection, management structure and more.

We can create or simply review the operating or shareholder’s agreement, the rules and bylaws, and address management contracts, necessary licensing and state or federal regulations.
