Business Startups: Establishing A Solid Framework

Starting a business involves a host of legal decisions, many of which will shape the structure of your enterprise for years to come. At Applegate Fifer Pulliam LLC, a boutique business law firm in Southern Indiana, we help entrepreneurs make informed decisions on all aspects of business formation. Our lawyers have helped hundreds of businesses get off the ground with a strong framework for success.

We can walk you through the considerations involved in selecting a business entity, creating a governance structure and pursuing financing. We also draft foundational documents for business startups such as articles of organization/incorporation, LLC operating agreements and bylaws.

General Counsel Services

Even after forming a business, legal concerns continue to arise on a day-to-day basis. You may need professional guidance on drafting and reviewing contracts, handling employment issues or conducting transactions. Our attorneys offer general counsel services to assist with these issues throughout the life of your business. As an entrepreneur himself, our lead attorney in this area, Keith Pulliam, understands the challenges small-business owners face. He will work closely with you to mitigate risks and accomplish your business objectives.

Our goal: to partner with you as an advocate and adviser, dedicated to the success of your business.

Successfully Navigating Business Transactions

Sound legal advice is a key component in all stages of business transactions, from preliminary negotiations to closing the deal. Even relatively small-scale transactions can be exceedingly complex.

We will work diligently to protect your interests in any type of business transaction or dispute, including:

  • Asset purchases
  • Business sales
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Dissolution
  • Expansion projects
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Partner and shareholder buy-outs
  • Stock deals
  • Vendor contracts
