What We Do

CLIENT-FOCUSED, RESULTS-driven EFFICIENCY

At The Samek Law Firm, LLC you won’t find the expense and pretense of a large law firm, but instead, a pragmatic, affordable approach to general business matters throughout the entire life cycle of your business.

GETTING STARTED

We help you choose the type of entity that is right for your business.

ENTITY CREATION

We draft all the necessary organizational documents, obtain a taxpayer identification number, and assist you in obtaining your necessary business licenses.

AGREEMENTS AMONG THE MEMBERS OF THE BUSINESS

We help you determine and document your relationship with your business partners (drafting shareholder or buy-sell agreements, limited liability company operating agreements, and the like).

UNDERSTANDING THE REGULATORY SCHEME

We will counsel you as to the laws unique to your business and applicable regulatory and licensing concerns, e.g., how HIPAA and STARK laws affect the practice of medicine.

ESTABLISHING THE NECESSARY BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

We are able to draw from our many relationships and introduce our clients to accountants, leasing agents, bankers, insurance agents, and IT professionals.

HIRING PERSONNEL

We will counsel you on applicable employment laws and draft offer letters, employment agreements, non-compete and confidentiality agreements, and employment policies and handbooks.

BANKING RELATIONSHIP

We will help you secure a line of credit and review and revise your loan documents.

CUSTOMER/VENDOR CONTRACTS

We will craft a business contract that is right for your particular business and protects you from liability and foreseeable and unforeseeable problems. We will negotiate your business dealings with your vendors and customers.

BUSINESS STRATEGY

We will counsel you on the risks and returns associated with making various business decisions.

ESTABLISHING YOURSELF ON THE INTERNET

We will review your web development agreements and ensure that your content is protected and counsel you as to privacy issues and the legal issues involved in transacting business via the internet.

BUSINESS ISSUES AND CONTRACTS

We will be here for you to review contracts that you need to sign from time to time, and to counsel you on the myriad of issues that a business person faces from time to time.

PERSONNEL ISSUES

We will help you devise appropriate compensation, bonus, and equity plans to motivate your personnel. We will also counsel you on accomplishing reductions in force should that be necessary. Should the opportunity arise, we will negotiate and handle your business acquisitions.
