EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS IN ALL ASPECTS OF CALIFORNIA BUSINESS LAW

BUSINESS FORMATION

Our goal is to help your business get up and running smoothly. Whether you are starting a limited liability corporation, general partnership or corporation, or are going through a merger, our experienced lawyers can help you work out the logistics. Our attorneys will make sure you have the proper paperwork and are following all rules and regulations.

Creating a new company is a fantastic opportunity when you have a solid business plan. A business law attorney in Orange County, California can help you make sure your operation starts on solid legal footing by helping you navigate all the permits, licenses, and other documentation you will need to handle before you can get up and running.

Depending on the type of business you wish to operate, it may be necessary to obtain specific clearances from government oversight agencies. For example, if your company’s operations affect the environment in any way, you will need to ensure full compliance with all applicable environmental regulations at the federal, state, and local levels. Your business law attorney in Santa Ana can be a helpful ally when it comes to obtaining the required clearances your business needs to begin operations.

Your business law attorney in Orange County, California will also be an asset when the business laws that affect your industry and/or your area change. While the federal, state, and local governments occasionally update or alter existing business laws or implement new ones, some laws go into effect by voter decision. If the people of California decide your business must operate differently, your business law lawyer in Orange County, California will help you make the necessary adjustments so you can continue operations in full compliance.

NAVIGATE CALIFORNIA’S ANTITRUST LAWS

The antitrust laws that exist at the federal and state levels aim to ensure healthy competition in the open marketplace and that no company commands a monopoly over a specific market sector. Antitrust laws essentially work to benefit consumers by providing them with as much choice in their purchases as possible. Antitrust laws also ensure job growth and provide employment opportunities to the citizens of California.

If your business encounters any type of antitrust issue, your business law attorney in Orange County, California will help you navigate the resulting legal proceedings. For example, as a business owner you have the right to file a lawsuit against another business in violation of California’s antitrust laws. An experienced business law lawyer in Orange County, California can assist you in pursuing this kind of private right of action and recover damages resulting from the defendant company’s violation. Additionally, antitrust lawsuits are opportunities for the government to crack down on unfair business practices, often resulting in injunctions against defendant businesses to ensure a fair market.

CONTRACTS

Many businesses have contracts with other people for services. These contracts could be with individual people or other businesses. We can help you craft the contract, make sure all the relevant information is included and help you if someone violates the contract.

Leases are an important part of business. We can help you review leases and any other transaction agreements. Our attorneys also have experience with buy/sell agreements.

Ultimately, every business owner in California will need to handle contracts at some point. A few examples of the types of contracts that come into play in the California business world include:

  • Business formation contracts. When a new business forms, the company leaders must create a contract that outlines all stakeholders’ rights and responsibilities when it comes to the operation and ownership of the business. For example, if two parties decide to start a business and one provides 60% of the startup costs while the other provides the other 40%, the business formation contract will typically reflect each party’s contribution toward the creation of the business and the initial costs to do so. This contract can also ensure the initial business stakeholders understand their rights, responsibilities, and obligations to the business as well as outline conflict resolution methods, such as arbitration agreements and similar clauses.
  • Vendor procurement contracts. Any product-focused business will need to establish contracts with other businesses to procure raw materials, supplies, assemblies, and other materials to create their finished products to sell to customers. The agreements between these businesses take the form of contracts. Both parties must fully understand and agree to all elements of a vendor contract before signing. An experienced business law attorney in Santa Ana, California can provide helpful insights so you are certain your vendor procurement contracts are fair and reasonable.
  • Service provider contracts. Businesses rely on all types of services, from software licensing to utilities. Your business law lawyer in Orange County, California can review service contracts for your business to ensure they fall within your best interests and meet all applicable legal requirements.
  • Employee contracts. If you need to hire employees for your company, it is essential to do so with full compliance of existing federal, state, and local labor standards. Your business law attorney in Orange County, California can help you devise legal employment contracts that adhere to the standards set forth by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other oversight agencies.

Contracts are an almost unavoidable part of the modern business world. Every business owner will inevitably need to negotiate a contract at some point in the operation of their enterprise. Having an experienced business law attorney in Orange County, California will make this process much easier.

NAVIGATE INSURANCE CLAIMS WITH GREATER CONFIDENCE

Insurance plays a major role for most businesses in California. While the average person may hold insurance policies for their vehicle, their home, and their medical care, businesses typically need to carry multiple types of insurance, such as:

  • Property insurance. If a business owner owns a commercial property, this type of coverage will protect the property from physical damage from covered events.
  • Vehicle and/or fleet insurance. Businesses that rely on vehicles must have auto insurance specifically tailored to their operations.
  • Asset protection insurance. A business that holds valuable assets, handles customer property, or has other high-value items in their property must insure them against damage, theft, or tampering.
  • Workers’ compensation insurance. Every employer in California must carry and maintain workers’ compensation insurance coverage, even if the business has a single employee. This insurance provides relief to employees who suffer injuries on the job and cannot work for an extended time.
  • Professional insurance. Businesses that provide services, such as plumbers, roofers, electricians, and mechanics must have insurance to cover mistakes their team members might make while serving customers.

Insurance issues are often complicated. The average business owner dreads having to face an insurance company unassisted. The attorneys at Blake & Ayaz are not afraid to tackle complex claims and fight for our clients’ rights in front of difficult insurance claim adjusters.

Our lawyers have a combined 60 years of experience working with businesses. Our expertise also extends to inside the courtroom. We can assist with business litigation and ensure your business is properly defended in and out of the courtroom.
