Business law is an extremely broad legal area that can affect everyone from a part time employee to a CEO of a major corporation, stockholders and customers.
Freundlich & Littman, LLC provides a number of services for small business, start-ups, and long standing corporations, including, formation and dissolution Corporations and LLC, (Limited Liability Companies), and Partnerships, as well as Purchase Sale Agreements, Non-Compete Clauses, Leases and Debt Collection.
All businesses, small or large, including those on the Internet are subject to regulations at the federal, state and local level. As such all businesses require both legal advice and protection whether it’s in sales, contracts, business formation, business investments, leases, trademarks or employee matters, or various business negotiations.
Business Law also covers appropriate and inappropriate action of both the employee and the employer as well as their rights and responsibilities, and their relationship with one another. This can also include action by other employees who may be in a managerial or supervisory position. Both employers and employees have rights, and there are standards, laws, governmental bureaus and arbitration agencies that define those rights.
Another area of Business Law that Freundlich & Littman, LLC, has particular experience in, is the drafting and enforcement of restrictive covenants, also known as non-compete agreements. As in many states, non-competition covenants in Pennsylvania are seen as a restraint on trade and are not favored by the courts, particularly if drafted by the employer and not negotiated between the parties. Enforcement of non-competition clauses results in a balancing of the employer’s legitimate protectable interest(s) against the hardship imposed upon the employee by the restriction upon the employee’s ability to work.
Whether you have been in business 10 years or 10 days, it is important to contact an attorney to evaluate potential exposure to liability and minimize that risk.
