He has the experience and knowledge to help draft and review all company contracts.
Other Business Formation Tasks

Draft business agreements, company bylaws, procedures, policies, and operating agreements
Prepare corporate documents
Fulfill business formation and registration requirements in Alabama
Review business contracts, procedures, and policies to ensure compliance
Protect yourself, your partners, and the business from possible lawsuits or liabilities
John will guide you through every step of the business formation process, help choose the right structure, and establish a proper legal foundation for your company.
All parties or entities involved in business contracts have a legal duty to act in good faith and fulfill their contractual obligations. Disputes may arise when any party in a legally-binding agreement defaults on their duties as stipulated in the contract.
John has the diligence and experience to help resolve contract disputes peacefully and amicably. He can handle a huge spectrum of business and contract disputes, including but not limited to:
Breach of contract
Errors in the contract
Breach of fiduciary duty
Unfair business competitions and practice
Offer and acceptance
Coercion, fraud, and misrepresentation
Definition of technical terms used in the contract
Tortious interference with a contract
As your attorney, John will take the legal steps necessary to resolve such contract disputes equitably, mitigate damages, or help seek relief for any damages suffered.
Closing a business venture may require the dissolution of the business. Dissolving an entity ends any responsibility of that entity to pay taxes and fines, settle debts, and other commitments.
John can help notify creditors, file the Certificate of Dissolution, and deal with outstanding potential liabilities. He will guide you through the steps involved in the business dissolution process and help dissolve your business seamlessly.
