Our firm can guide you in the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as existing businesses interact with the public, other companies, and the government. This area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including tax law, intellectual property, real estate, sales, employment law, bankruptcy, and others. Some of this work is transactional, meaning court is not necessary. In fact, Attorney Ruiz can help you avoid future litigation by properly setting up your company. 

Business Formation And Internal Agreements

New companies must take steps to comply with the law even before opening their doors for the first time. Our office is routinely asked to form new entities on behalf of clients by filing the necessary documents with the Secretary of State. Clients may also need assistance choosing the business entity best suited for their enterprise.

Businesses can be formed as corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and other entities. Most of these business forms can be further customized to meet the needs of the company. Examples include corporations formed as “S-corps” in order to achieve tax savings, and partnerships formed as “limited partnerships” to allow some owners to participate as investors only.

While the selection of the appropriate business entity will depend on numerous factors, the primary purpose of most entities is to shield owners from individual liability. Operating a business that is not set up to provide limited liability means that the owners are putting all of their personal assets within reach of the business’s creditors. By working with our staff from the start of your business, such situations can easily be avoided.

We can also help draft the internal agreements that will control how your new company is managed. A common example is an LLC operating agreement. This document should be drafted with care, as it governs how the company’s owners will share profits and losses, make important business decisions, and transfer their ownership rights.

Navigating Complex Transactions

Some commercial transactions are within the ability of business owners to handle on their own. Others are not, especially when a deal touches on complicated and evolving areas of the law, such as securities regulation or internet commerce.

Even for savvy business people, problems can develop when emotions become involved. Our team can provide valuable insight into a transaction, not only because of Attorney Ruiz's legal training, but also because of the objective nature of his analysis. This allows us to spot issues overlooked by business owners and managers who may be too emotionally invested in seeing the deal go through.

Preemptive Measures To Avoid Litigation

Texas business law provides important rules to guide companies before disputes occur. Lawyer Ruiz can assist you in structuring transactions to minimize the company’s exposure to litigation. This sort of strategic legal maneuvering can end up saving the company huge amounts of money.
