Start Up Counseling for New Businesses 

Being the owner of a new business can be overwhelming. There are many rules and regulations that affect the way you do business. The questions and risks that arise multiply if you are planning on going into business with others. The decisions and policies you make and put into place from the beginning can determine not only how your company grows, but whether your business ultimately succeeds or fails.

This process doesn’t have to be overwhelming. We can guide you in your decision-making and ensure you have the proper documents and policies in place to minimize the risks that your business will face. At Klevatt & Associates, LLC we strive to find the most economical and efficient resolution for your growing business needs.

General Counseling for Existing Businesses 

When we serve as a company’s outside counsel, we approach the role as an advocate and partner, making it a priority to learn about your company and industry from the inside out. We provide counsel to effectively negotiate, structure, and document many types of business transactions.

We can also handle your business’ litigation needs. We represent clients in all types of business related disputes and litigation. We understand the emotional and financial impact legal disputes can have on a business, and aim to minimize that impact. As commercial litigation lawyers, our representation includes all aspects of dispute resolution both in and out of Court, in virtually all areas of corporate litigation. During the process, we keep clients informed and involve them in all decision making keeping in mind their unique goals and needs. Litigation can be costly and disruptive to your business, and therefore we strive to find the most economical and efficient resolution for you and your business.

Our areas of representation include contact disputes, business torts, employment disputes, trademark and copyright prosecution and enforcement, collections, appeals, partnership, shareholder and joint venture disputes and insurance litigation.

What Does Your Business Need? 

We provide free legal audits to prospective clients where we identify the potential risks your business faces by its current practice and standards. It is important to know whether your business is complying with applicable laws and regulations and whether the procedures implemented are protecting your business from excessive litigation costs and legal liabilities.
