Minimizing Risks And Maximizing Success

At The Strause Law Group, PLLC, a major focus of our firm concerns business and corporate law. Our lawyers have substantial experience in this area and counsel our clients from establishing a new business to winding down an existing company. Our attorneys understand the risks and liabilities that are associated with being a business owner. We represent our clients with the goal of minimizing those risks in order to maximize our clients' potential success.

Business Startups and Entrepreneur Issues

The risks associated with starting a new business can be diminished with the guidance of knowledgeable and experienced counsel throughout the process. Our attorneys advise our clients on the proper selection of their business entity and draft all necessary documents for formation. In addition to drafting documents for formation, we also draft a broad range of documents that protect your business' interests, including non-compete/trade secret, confidentiality, vendor and employment agreements.

Our attorneys often review and analyze contracts for our clients and are experienced in negotiations to gain more advantageous terms. One area where this experience has become particularly useful is in the review of franchise agreements. We review these documents to ensure that our clients fully understand their rights and obligations before entering into a franchisor/franchisee relationship.

At The Strause Law Group, PLLC, in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, we also understand that without sufficient financing, the success of our clients' new business, or ongoing business, could be in jeopardy; therefore we counsel our clients on the available sources of financing and assist them in obtaining sufficient capital for their needs.

Non-Compete or Trade Secret Agreements

Non-compete agreements can play an important strategic role in protecting your business' interests. While these agreements are often considered unenforceable because of their restrictive nature, our attorneys possess the requisite knowledge and skill to draft agreements that will be upheld in court. If such agreements are challenged, our attorneys enforce these agreements for our clients.

Another way you can protect your business interests are with trade secret and confidentiality agreements. The term "trade secret" encompasses much more than one might commonly think. Our attorneys understand which aspects of your unique business can be protected. We draft agreements to protect those unique aspects and to ensure the continuance of the economic advantage you possess over your competitors.

Commercial Transactions

The relationship our firm develops with our clients is a lasting one that continues beyond the formation and early years of their business. Situations often arise during the course of business where advice from an attorney, who is knowledgeable not only in the law, but also your business, can be invaluable. Providing personal service to our clients is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, we tailor our representation to the particular needs of our clients, whether that be analyzing and negotiating contracts our clients are considering entering into, or drafting entirely new contracts whose terms are fair, yet advantageous to our client.

Whether growing your business organically or through acquisitions, our firm handles all matters dealing with the buying and selling of businesses. If need be, our attorneys also assist our clients with the winding-down and dissolution of an existing company. The Strause Law Group, PLLC, is a full-service law firm that seeks to fulfill the individual needs of our clients, however they may arise.

Business Disputes

Litigation can be costly, but sometimes it is the only option available which adequately protects your business' interests. At The Strause Law Group, PLLC, we represent both plaintiffs and defendants and are dedicated to resolving our clients' cases effectively and efficiently as possible.

Our litigation attorneys have experience in litigating a broad range of disputes that arise in the business context, including but not limited to breach of contract, administrative law issues, employee grievances, vendor disputes, asset purchase disputes and franchise disputes. Our firm seeks to minimize your litigation concerns so you can continue with the successful management of your business.
