Running a business in Indiana requires plenty of maintenance. It’s more than having a good product or service. It’s about the people who help you do it. Most businesses are determined to make the right moves at the right time. Ensuring you have the correct processes, documents, and plans in place requires having legal counsel willing to learn what you do to help you do it better.

Making mistakes could cost you everything

Indiana businesses are not necessarily sued because they are bad. They are sued mostly because they haven’t made the right legal decisions. The Law Office of Curtis J. Butcher is not in the business of running your business. Carmel attorney Curtis Butcher can advise you on the right approach to mergers, acquisitions, asset protection, forming franchises, starting new partnerships, and business formations.

We can help you with many aspects of running your business according to Indiana law. Below are a few areas where your business may need our experience:

  • Business formation. Having a good idea is one thing, but understanding how to make it thrive — or last — will depend on how you form your business. There are a variety of benefits to the legal structures of businesses, chief amongst them are tax benefits. An experienced Carmel business attorney can help you choose a structure and form it without worry of unforeseen liabilities.
  • Merger or acquisition. For all the energy and money you’ve invested in your business, selling or buying adds another complex layer for you to navigate. You need to ensure the right processes are in place to ensure your business not only appeals to buyers but gives you the value you’ve invested so much into building up over the years.
  • Confidentiality. Aside from demonstrating value to buyers, it’s imperative you protect your greatest asset: confidentiality. An attorney can help you draft up agreements to share your company’s information without risking sensitive elements that could sap your competitive edge.
  • Letter of intent. A letter of intent presents the major terms and a representation of your expectations in a merger or acquisition. These may change after the letter of intent has been drafted, but they are typically guiding factors throughout the process.
  • Due diligence. This begins once the letter of intent has been signed. Due diligence is when a buyer confirms the seller’s essential information — all anyone wants to know before investing large sums of money. As a seller, you need to know which information is pertinent to your sale.
  • Purchase or merger agreements. These extensive agreements lay out all details of the deal both parties have agreed to. Due to their complexity and length, they need to be written and examined by a detail-oriented representative who understands how the laws apply to the goals of both parties.

Curtis Butcher can guide you through each of these processes so that you can protect your business, your future, and yourself.
