Avoid Legal Mistakes With Your Small Business


When you undertake the journey of small business formation, you are pursuing more than just a livelihood. The company you build will be founded on your blood, sweat and tears. It will take all of your best efforts to make your creation into a success.

When you begin the process of business formation, the choice of entity — partnership, limited liability company or corporation — is an important decision that you will need to make early in the life of your enterprise. Your choices can depend on a number of criteria, including:

  • The number of partners, principals or shareholders you need to account for
  • A taxation structure that meets your needs
  • Whether you need to raise funds from outside sources for your business

Attorney Craig Lerman has robust experience in both business and law. He can help you identify the appropriate business entity for your goals and draft the formation documents, including partnership agreements and financial disclosures. We have offices in Kennesaw, Alpharetta & Atlanta, GA to better serve you.

Beyond Formation: Advising Small Businesses

Once the legal framework for your business has been created, it is important to lay out a plan that is legally and financially sound. Attorney Craig Lerman has experience in advising clients on liability avoidance, asset protection, succession planning and more. He will educate you on the fundamentals of risk management and limited liability entities so you make the correct decisions when it matters most.

By offering legal services on an on-call basis, you can rely on him to fulfill what is essentially an in-house counsel role for your business. This approach gives you financial flexibility without taking on the risks of operating without a dedicated lawyer.

Ongoing Legal Services

Craig Lerman is a business lawyer dedicated to helping small businesses succeed, and he does this by getting to know his clients and their goals. As your business grows, so will the number of legal issues you encounter. He can represent you in any legal proceeding, including:

  • Business litigation: He provides plaintiff and defense counsel for his small business clients involved in various business disputes, including breach of contract and litigation among principals.
  • Ongoing business contracts: He is an experienced negotiator and contract adviser who can advance the interests of your business when making deals for your company.
  • Employment law: The better you understand employment law, the better you can run your company. He can give you sound legal advice on employment law matters like insurance and severance.
