At the Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC, we are different from most other business planning attorneys in many ways, including:

  • No surprise costs - Most of our fees are fixed and agreed to in advance. You choose the level of planning and cost that best suits you and your business at our initial meeting.
  • Personalized attention - Instead of just preparing a set of legal documents and hoping for the best, we check on you and your business to help your company grow by advising you on best-calculated risks for the biggest rewards.
  • Develop a long-term relationship - We understand that throughout the life of your business, you, your assets, your business, and the laws will change. Through an ongoing relationship, we can help you navigate those changes.

  • Protecting your best interests - By counseling you on the best choices in matters, such as buying insurance, selling your business and retirement planning, we help you maintain orderly legal and financial affairs and protect you from salespeople who are more interested in earning money than helping your business grow.

Protecting Your Business in the Future

If you are just starting your business, you will need to choose a structure that will be beneficial to you and your business in the long term. There is much to consider when choosing a business structure, such as risks, liabilities, employees, and income taxes. Our business attorneys can help you weigh the benefits of these different structures while minimizing or avoiding legal issues.

We can help you understand the risks and benefits of the following business structures:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Joint Ventures
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
  • C-Corps
  • S-Corps

Once you have your business started, you will need to work to ensure your operation runs in compliance with New York state law. We can help you draft and review your legal documents, including shareholder agreements, employment contracts, and deferred compensation plans. In addition, we can assist with agreements related to commercial real estate property.

The Benefits of Estate Planning for Your Business

Did you know that only 30 percent of businesses are successfully passed on to the second generation? This statistic is in part due to the lack of comprehensive estate plans of owners and the difficult and sometimes damaging probate process.

After your business is up and running, you may want to consider passing it on to future generations. The skilled Long Island business attorneys from our firm can assist you in creating a business succession plan and can help you pass your company to your children or other loved ones.
