Trusted, Affordable Assistance for Orange County Business Owners
Business law attorney Kramer helps her clients and their businesses stay on top of things. For example, we help our clients remain compliant with keeping their business entities (INC’s and LLC’s) up-to-date with the Secretary of State and thus “viable” so that if they ever are served a lawsuit out of left field (and it happens ALL the time) they’ll be protected. Unfortunately, when the shareholders of a California corporation fail to follow required corporate formalities, creditors and claimants can “pierce the corporate veil” and hold the shareholders personally liable for the corporation’s debts and obligations.
Having attorney Kramer help you with business law matters gives you peace of mind that your exposure to liability is minimized. If a lawsuit comes your way, our experienced business litigation attorneys will do everything possible to either quash it or ensure the best possible outcome.
Valerie L. Kramer Helps Clients with All Types of Business Contracts
Every business deal revolves around contracts. Every transaction where money changes hands, whether you know it or not, is a contract. If you chose to use an off-the-shelf sales form from Staples, you might be risking your business on every transaction you do. On the other hand, if you use QuickBooks or FreshBooks or some other business software to conduct business, and your estimates, sales invoices are completely naked of ANY legal terms, you are a huge target if one of your customers gets “ticked off” at you and asks their attorney what options they have. When annoyed-customer’s attorney sees that you never invested in any custom legal terms for your business, they can flash their client a big smile and assure them that he can get them some justice or payback! To the attorney, it is like a huge roll-up door that is fully OPEN, and that attorney can drive right through it. That business was doing business without any business terms protecting it! It is so sad — the business-killing lawsuits we see virtually weekly — could have been totally avoided by not much more than a paragraph on the bottom of rear of their everyday business paperwork.
