Business Law

Nashville and its surrounding areas have become a prime region for economic growth and a center where emerging businesses and established companies have a golden opportunity to thrive. So why is it vital in such a friendly business environment for you, as a business professional, to enlist the counsel and advisory services of a Nashville business law attorney? It is because legal choices made by companies in all stages of development can be a determining factor in the successful launch, continued growth, or failure of a business enterprise.

Cole Law Group business lawyers understand how the choice of a business entity, business organization, the negotiations and drafting of business contracts, employee disputes, and future business litigation can impact your business aspirations and prosperity. We can help by anticipating future legal and administrative issues that might arise and by limiting your risk with the implementation of a sound business plan and protective measures.

Business Entrepreneurship

Having a team of business lawyers in Nashville that can help with the logistics of business formation can ensure that you are putting your business in an excellent position to succeed. If you are a business entrepreneur, the Cole Law Group business team can provide you with a solid foundation upon which to establish your company. We assist entrepreneurs with implementing a business plan, naming the business and claiming a trademark, creating employment contracts and non disclosure agreements, and negotiating sales and lease agreements.

Business Entities

The first step to a successful venture is selecting the proper business entity. It is of utmost importance to choose the proper business entity and develop a concrete business plan in order to avoid future pitfalls. We can help you determine whether a sole proprietorship, corporation, S corporation, limited liability company (LLC), partnership or limited liability partnership (LLP) is right for you. Making the right choice will help you achieve the goals of 1) protecting business assets, 2) minimizing personal liability, 3) complying with federal, state and local laws, and 4) taking advantage of tax benefits.

Business Transactions and Development

As your business needs evolve and you are positioned for growth and development, your focus will turn to establishing a solid business plan, preventing future employment disputes, and organizing your day to day operations. Whether you are a small business owner or large corporation, our Nashville business law attorneys can advise you on negotiation and drafting of contracts, employment and operating agreements, buying / selling or restructuring a business, risk management, and intellectual property protection.

General Counsel Services

Cole Law Group also offers outside General Counsel Services so that you can have access to experienced legal advice on an on going basis. With our help, you can effectively and efficiently run your business to its utmost capacity.

Many small to mid sized companies cannot afford to hire a full time, in house legal team, but as your enterprise grows, you will face the same employment, compliance, customer relations and contractual issues that confront larger enterprises. Therefore, our Nashville business attorneys offer a General Counsel Services program that will help you avoid legal disruptions and make your budget more predictable.

For a monthly fixed retainer fee, you can have one of our experienced business lawyers available to guide you in strategic decision making and to assist you with day to day business challenges that may arise. The flat rate fee and a customized program will be mutually agreed upon after we sit down with you during a consultation to review the scope of your ongoing business concerns.

General Counsel Services allow you to have consistent advice and representation from a local business attorney in Nashville who is familiar with your company and who will be on call to address your concerns in a timely manner. Such a proactive approach provides a cost effective way to ensure continued growth and protection of your business assets.

For larger companies who already have in house counsel, we can support you as overflow attorneys to help you manage spikes in workload or to cover under served areas of the business.

Call us today at (615) 490-6020 or email us from our Contact Page to schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled and experienced business lawyers.
