Experienced Indiana Lawyer Delivers Sound Guidance to Businesses

Committed adviser assists with various legal issues that companies face

Whether your business is new or well-established, a skilled attorney can help steer it toward success through sound legal guidance. At Crossin Law Offices, LLC in Indiana, I advise business owners in the Valparaiso area and throughout the state regarding numerous types of business concerns, from the formation of legal entities to ownership transfers. I counsel owners on developing investment strategies, guide them regarding corporate compliance issues and consistently deliver insightful advice to help them meet their particular challenges. Skilled in contracts law, I negotiate terms, draft agreements and also represent clients in contractual disputes. In addition to my legal training, I hold an advanced degree in accountancy and am a Certified Fraud Specialist™.

Reputable attorney advises new businesses on the legal formation process

There are several different ways to form businesses and my firm takes the time to find the option that best suits your needs. The most common types of legal business entities include:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Limited liability companies 
  • Corporations

All of these entities have advantages and disadvantages. For example, sole proprietorships and partnerships are inexpensive and simple to set up, but they don’t provide protection from personal liability. LLC’s and corporations shield personal assets and offer other benefits, but setting them up is more complex and might be slightly more costly.

Strategic law firm handles all areas of contract law

Establishing favorable contracts is an essential element in the success of most businesses. From employment agreements to service contracts to non-disclosure agreements to liability releases, I negotiate and draft solid contracts that stand up to legal challenges. I can also review contracts that have already been prepared to ensure that the terms are clear and serve your interests. If a breach of contract dispute arises, I’ll stand up for your rights whether you believe the other side violated deal terms or you are being accused of a breach.   

Dedicated legal counselor helps business owners with succession planning

Succession planning is a critical but often overlooked part of operating a business. With a succession plan in place, you can prepare an ownership transition plan that can be used when the time comes. Some of the main things a strong succession plan should contain include:

  • An approximate time frame for when you will exit the business
  • Instructions for what will happen to the business should you unexpectedly die or become incapacitated
  • The name of the person whom you want to take over the business once you leave

There are many other items that go into a good succession plan. My law firm can help you understand what goes into a smooth transition and guide you through each step of the process.
