Michigan Business Law

Michigan Business Law

“Business law” describes many areas of law including the formation of a limited liability company (“LLC”), a corporation, a partnership, or a sole proprietorship. A competent attorney can help you to avoid personal liability for business debt and develop a business plan that will substantially improve your likelihood of success.

Once a business has been formed, there are many issues that develop with regard to vendors and suppliers, employees and independent contractors, employee policies, accounting practices, covenants not to compete, business interference from a third party, business slander, office and equipment leasing, financing, and the like. Business litigation (known as commercial litigation) can often be avoided by carefully drawn contracts and written agreements. There’s a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In the business world, an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
