Business Attorney - Indianapolis

Starting a business is one of the most challenging endeavors any person can face.  Not only are you putting a substantial amount of money at risk, but you will be devoting substantial amounts of your time to make that buisness a success.

Operating your own business is one of the most satisfying and gratifying experiences one can enjoy.  In an employment situation, your career and income potential are determined by others, your employer.  As a business owner you are able to control your own destiny.

Unfortunately, far too many people jump into business not knowing what they are getting into.  They fail to take advantage of the many strategies available to minimize risk.  Expectations of different partners are not addressed in the beginning to eliminate potential future conflict.  Trademarks and other proprietary information is not protected.  Different Contigencies are not planned for.  Any one of these factors can destroy a business.

Any business involves risk.  Risk cannot be eliminated, but it can be greatly reduced by identifying and pursuing the best strategy for growth in the beginning.  Accordingly, in the event the business does not do as well as expected, by doing your homework in the beginning, you will be prepared to address the problem and change course.

Areas that we help in business growth include:

  • Legal Entity Formation;
  • Operating Agreements;
  • Loan Documentation;
  • Business Succession Planning;
  • Lease Review and Negotiations;
  • Employment Contracts;
  • Protection of Proprietary Information; and
  • Licensing Arrangements.

Buying a Franchise

If you have considered starting a business but fear the financial risk involved, you may wish to consider operating a franchise.  A franchise allows you to own and run a business under a brand name.  In owning a franchise, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

We work with potential franchisees in determining whether franchising is right for them.  We help clients consider factors that are not always immediately apparent when entering into this type of relationship:

  • Evaluate the Franchise Offering;
  • Compatibility with your goals and objectives; and
  • Review and analysis of the Franchise Agreement. 

For more information of the services we provide to prospective franchisees, contact us, Courtney L. Campbell, Attorney at Law, today.
