Hays County Small Business Lawyer

Hays County business litigation and contracts lawyer

Hays County Business Law Attorney for Contracts, Litigation, and General Counsel

Small business owners have a lot on their plate. Managing the day-to-day operations of a company is a full-time job, and in addition to addressing these concerns, owners will need to make sure they are developing long-term strategies that will allow them to remain successful. They may also encounter multiple types of legal issues that affect their business activities, their plans for the future, and their relationships with customers, vendors, suppliers, and employees. Determining how to handle these issues correctly can be difficult, especially if a business has a limited budget to put toward addressing legal concerns. Fortunately, by establishing a relationship with a business law attorney, a business owner can make sure they are taking the right steps to achieve continuing success.

Geoff Mayfield, Attorney at Law works to help business owners address their legal needs. Regardless of the size of your business, he can advise you on the best ways to handle any concerns that may arise, and he can work with you to create business strategies that will help you avoid unexpected problems and continue to succeed in the marketplace. Geoff has over 15 years of experience, and he can help address multiple types of legal matters that may affect your business. He will take the time to gain a complete understanding of your business's needs, and by discussing your plans and goals with you, he can make sure you are fully prepared to respond to the challenges and opportunities that you face.

Addressing Legal Issues That Affect Small Businesses

Geoff can assist with a wide variety of legal concerns related to a business's operations and strategies, including:

  • Entity selection and business formation - When creating a new business, an owner will usually need to establish a formal business structure. However, even after a business has been established, it may need to be restructured to address issues such as an owner's personal liability for business debts, the addition of new partners, financing from investors, or taxes on the business's earnings. Geoff can work with business owners to help them determine the most beneficial way to structure their business and make sure they follow the correct procedures when establishing a new business entity.
  • Contract drafting, negotiation, and review - Legal agreements with other businesses, customers, suppliers, and employees can ensure that a business's interests will be protected, while also providing business owners with the ability to enforce these agreements when necessary. Geoff can assist in the creation of multiple types of contractual agreements, including vendor contracts, employment contracts, severance agreements, and partnership agreements. He will work to negotiate favorable terms and make sure a contract is drafted and executed correctly. He can also help a business review the contracts that are currently in place, providing guidance on whether these agreements may need to be updated or whether new contracts may be negotiated.
  • Business litigation - Business owners may encounter legal disputes in a variety of situations, and while some of these disputes may be resolved through negotiation between parties, legal action may be necessary to protect a business's interests. Geoff works with business owners to address and resolve contract disputes, partnership disputes, and multiple other types of legal concerns.
  • Commercial real estate - A business may lease space where it will conduct operations, or a property owner may lease space to commercial tenants, and the parties will want to make sure their commercial leases will protect their interests and meet their needs. Business owners may become involved in commercial real estate transactions in which they purchase or sell property, as well as real estate development projects. Geoff can provide representation to ensure that transactions and development projects can be completed successfully, and he also provides legal representation for residential landlords and helps resolve commercial lease disputes.
  • General counsel - When a small business does not have the means to keep an attorney or legal team on staff, Geoff can provide ongoing legal help and representation. He works with business owners to address and resolve any legal concerns they may encounter, while also helping them create and execute business strategies that will allow them to achieve their goals.
