The Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert represents small and mid-sized businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs with their business formation, acquisition, corporate governance, contracting and general legal needs.
After spending the first 15 years of my practice representing companies in complex business litigation disputes and the next 10 years representing businesses and individuals in both litigation and corporate transactional matters, it became clear to me that many, if not most, business litigation disputes arise from poor legal planning and poorly drafted business agreements. Unfortunately, just one litigation dispute can destroy a small or mid-sized company’s profitability and, in some cases, can force the company out of business altogether. Recognizing the ever-increasing cost of litigation (and arbitration), the Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert now focuses solely on providing corporate transactional legal services with the goal of “litigation mitigation.”
While some disputes can’t be avoided, businesses can take precautionary legal measures to protect themselves. Choosing the right type of business entity, preparing a shareholder agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement, and having certain employees sign employment contracts or noncompetition agreements are just a few of the legal considerations every business should address. Many disputes arise because business owners fail to take the time to prepare adequate foundational documents and agreements. The Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert can help with these corporate transactional and contractual agreements.
