Alpharetta Business Law Attorney Helps Companies Succeed
Experienced counselor provides high-quality representation to Atlanta-area firms
No business owner wants to devote excessive time and expense to legal issues. In the greater Atlanta area, no business owner needs to: my firm, James A. Nystrom, provides comprehensive legal representation to a wide range of small- and medium-sized businesses. With more than 30 years of legal practice in Georgia, I am able to anticipate and avert problems that plague companies. For firms that choose not to retain an on-staff legal department, I fulfill the functions of a general counsel. From my Alpharetta office, I provide a complete range of services that cover clients’ needs from startup to dissolution, including drafting and enforcement of contracts, transactional assistance, tax advice and litigation advocacy. No matter what type of business you own, I can help you to meet its continuing legal needs.
Knowledgeable advice on forming a new business
Even the best legal advice cannot guarantee success to a new venture, but my firm will ensure that your business is launched from a firm legal foundation. I help startups with legal issues such as:
- Formation documents — For any type of registration, I can prepare and file the necessary papers with the Georgia Secretary of State Corporations Division or the relevant authority in another state.
- Legal and tax status — I help clients choose the right business structure for their particular situation and goals. These structures include C or S corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and joint ventures. Once you’ve chosen your business entity, I will advise you how to operate properly from a legal standpoint.
- Permit and license assistance — Creating a legal entity is just one step in the regulatory process. My firm works with companies to obtain the necessary licenses and permits so clients can open their doors as quickly as possible.
My goal is to establish longstanding, mutually beneficial relationships with my new business clients. Accordingly, my advice always includes an assessment of the impact that each choice will have on the future of your venture.
Protecting business owners by drafting buy-and-sell agreements
Unexpected events in a fellow owner’s or partner’s life can throw a successful operation into chaos. If you’re running or launching a business with one or more people, I can help draft a buy-and-sell agreement that establishes a clear plan should someone leave suddenly. If a death, illness or financial crisis occurs, I can ensure that ownership rights and responsibilities are clarified so a stressful situation is not made worse by disputes between shareholders and their families.
