Business and Corporate Law

Keilen Law gives you the legal tools you need so you can focus on building your business.

Commercial transactions can be complex, and working with an experienced business attorney can ensure that you get the best results for yourself and your business. Working with an attorney from the beginning, before you begin with negotiations, helps you avoid mistakes and misunderstandings. Documents like letters of intent help you and the other party start your negotiations in good faith and with a common understanding of your goals. Parties often share confidential information like lists of creditors, tax documents, and intellectual property assignments during negotiations. A business attorney can establish confidentiality agreements to protect this information. You and your attorney will be able to work together throughout the process to ensure an efficient and successful transaction.

Contracts

Properly written and negotiated contracts are essential for both your business and your personal financial security as a business owner. Creating a formal business entity such as a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) can help shield you from being personally liable for your business’s debts. Our business attorneys have substantial experience in drafting these contracts, as well as leases and other documents. 

Nonprofits

Keilen Law understands the importance of your nonprofit’s mission and your commitment to supporting that mission. We have comprehensive knowledge of the Michigan Nonprofit Corporation Act that regulates most nonprofit organizations. Our business attorneys are experienced in working with nonprofits on all their required legal services, including managing boards of directors, litigation, government issues, and advocacy.

Business Incorporations

Keilen Law’s general business lawyers can help you determine the best way to incorporate your business, whether that is an LLC, C-Corp, S-Corp, partnership, or other structure. Our business attorneys will assist you with drafting all the necessary contracts and other documents. If you reach the point where you no longer want to run your business, we will guide you through the process of dissolving it while complying with the relevant state and federal laws and minimizing the associated costs for you as much as possible.

Small Businesses and Startups

Whether you are considering starting a business or are already a small business owner, you can benefit from the advice of our business attorneys. We can help you start your business, buy an existing business, or sell your company. Our client-centered approach means that we are committed to your success. Working with Keilen Law ensures that you have access to the legal expertise you need to grow your business without the expense of hiring an in-house legal team.
