Holmes Costin & Marcus PLLC Assists Clients in Business Formation and Direction

When you are starting a new business, there is a lot to be excited about and lots to do before you even get to your first sale. Many business owners who are working as a team tend to prioritize building a product, staffing a service, finding space to operate, and of course, attracting and serving customers. Meanwhile, the equally important need for a written agreement spelling out how they will run the business is overlooked.

That’s why we’re here. We do the boring stuff – the nitty-gritty of drafting operating agreements or shareholder agreements, matching the right business entity form to your business objectives, drafting the basic agreements you will need to sell to customers, and to bring on partners, employees and contractors, and getting the terms of service and privacy statements ready for your website (because we know that even though “no one reads them,” regulators do). We even help lawyers set up their practices. We like this work because we enjoy meeting business owners and learning about the new products and services they are bringing to the marketplace.

And after you are up and running, we serve as a sounding board when you are confronting something new, or when you hit a bump in the road, or when a vendor sends you a long agreement in single-spaced type that try as you might, you just can’t make yourself stay awake long enough to read. It may be a software agreement, or a teaming agreement, or an insurance binder – let us unravel it for you so you know what you are getting for your money.
