Along the way, we will educate you on best practices and ensure compliance with all applicable laws. Our counsel and legal services are all geared toward attaining your business’s goals.
What We Do
Our business attorneys in Dallas, TX, provide a wide range of services on almost any matter that affects your business.
Starting a business requires many considerations. At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we offer counsel on forming your business and can provide options based on your objectives. The right entity type can truly impact the success of your enterprise. We evaluate your goals, financing structure, liability risks, and other factors in helping you determine the appropriate entity for your business. Our business attorneys will review the advantages and disadvantages of limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs), C corporations, S corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships.
Once you decide on the entity type for your new business, our attorneys can draft and file the appropriate paperwork to establish the entity. With your company’s goals in mind, we can then create the governing documents that set the foundation for your business. Examples of these documents include partnership agreements, bylaws, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and third-party contracts. Within these documents, we will address the risks you may face in the future and ensure the appropriate remedies are available to you.
Contract Negotiation, Review, and Litigation
Businesses are built on contracts. When operating your business, you need solid contracts with clearly outlined terms that provide protections and remedies in the event of disagreement or breach. Before entering into a contract, you will want a Dallas business attorney to review the document. At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we have the skills and resources to negotiate the terms of a contract in a way that is favorable to you. We will ensure that the contract is legally binding and compliant with all applicable laws.
Unfortunately, even the most carefully drafted contracts can be subject to disagreement. If you are facing a contract dispute, you need a business lawyer in Dallas on your side.
Over the last 25 years, we have helped countless clients reach a resolution. We offer alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, which are different ways to resolve a dispute without going to court. These include negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. Mediation is a voluntary, non-binding process whereby a neutral third party facilitates the discussion and helps the parties reach an agreeable solution. Arbitration is more akin to litigation in that the parties present their case to an arbitrator who issues a binding decision.
ADR is typically faster and less expensive than traditional litigation. If you cannot resolve your contract dispute through ADR, we can represent you in court. A business litigation attorney will fight for a favorable outcome.
Partners argue. It happens. But it does not have to ruin your business. If you and your business partner cannot come to a resolution, it may be time to bring in a neutral third party. At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we try to resolve partnership disputes in a manner to protect the business. We can assist with negotiations, mediation, or arbitration.
Our Dallas business attorney, Stephen Hunnicutt, has handled disagreements ranging from hiring the wrong person to misappropriation of funds, theft of trade secrets, and other matters. Let us help you reach a mutually agreeable solution that benefits your business.
