For Startups: Building Strong Foundations

Selecting the Right Business Structure

When you're starting a business, deciding on its structure is one of the first and most crucial steps. This choice impacts your taxes, your personal liability, and even your ability to raise money.

We at Simple Law TX specialize in helping you understand the differences between sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations.

We'll discuss what each structure means for your personal risk, tax obligations, and growth potential. We aim to find the perfect fit for your business vision, ensuring your legal structure supports your ambitions and protects your interests.

Intellectual Property Protection

In today's fast-paced business world, your ideas and creations set you apart. Protecting these assets is essential.

Our team assists with trademarks, helping to ensure your brand identity is uniquely yours. We navigate the complexities of patent law, protecting your inventions from competitors.

Copyrights, trade secrets, and other forms of intellectual property also fall under our watchful eye. We not only help in securing your intellectual property but also in enforcing your rights if they are ever threatened.

Contracts and Agreements

Effective contracts are the bedrock of reliable business relationships. Whether it’s service agreements, partnership agreements, or vendor contracts, we make sure your agreements are clear, comprehensive, and legally sound.

Our lawyers are adept at drafting contracts that are easy to understand and hard to dispute. This means less worry about potential conflicts and more focus on your business growth. We also review contracts presented to you, ensuring they align with your interests and don’t contain hidden risks or unfair clauses.

Employee Relations and Compliance

As your business grows, so does your team. Each new hire brings legal responsibilities.

From drafting employment contracts to advising on workplace policies, we make sure you're compliant with state and federal employment laws. This includes navigating complex issues like wage laws, employee benefits, and workplace safety.

We also offer guidance on creating a positive work environment that minimizes the risk of disputes and litigation, allowing you to build a thriving, productive team.

Common Business Mistakes and How We Help

Drafting Clear Founders' Agreements

Not having a clear agreement among founders can lead to confusion and disagreements.

We help you create a solid founders' agreement. This will cover who owns what, who does what, and how decisions are made.

Choosing a Legally Sound Company Name

Picking a business name without checking legalities can cause big headaches later.

We do a deep dive to make sure your chosen name is safe to use. This means checking it doesn't step on anyone else's toes legally and is all yours. Think of it as making sure your business name is as unique as your business idea.

Secure Intellectual Property

Not protecting your ideas and creations can leave them open to being copied.

We're like guardians for your brainstorms - trademarks, patents, you name it. We help you lock down your creative genius, so it stays yours and only yours.

Selecting the Right Legal Entity

Picking the wrong legal setup for your business can cause tax headaches and liability issues.

We guide you in choosing the best structure for your business, like picking the right tool for a job. It's all about finding the perfect fit for your business goals and plans.

Crafting Strong, Fair Contracts

Vague or unfair contracts can lead to disputes and losses.

We craft contracts that are like strong handshakes - clear, fair, and trustworthy. This means making sure everyone knows what they're agreeing to, and keeping things smooth and professional.

Handling HR with Care

Navigating employee laws and regulations can be tricky and getting it wrong can be costly.

Carey was able to fit me in last minute the day before I closed on my new house. I suspected a mistake, and the mortgage company refused to look into it. Carey confirmed the mistake, and helped resolve the issue without delaying my closing. Uploading documents was quick and easy. Very friendly and professional. Definitely would recommend her for any real estate needs.
