The attorneys at Cohn Lifland are ready to guide clients who want to start businesses through choosing a business entity, drafting an operating agreement and protecting the business from the competition.

People who want to buy an established business may have questions as well. They often wonder how to assess the viability of buying a business and if it is in their best interests to acquire this new entity. Established business owners face a variety of legal issues, including employment law matters, unfair competition, trademark and intellectual property infringement, violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and a variety of business torts. Business owners need to take all precautions to avoid lawsuits and protect the bottom line. If you are a new or existing business owner, you should contact Cohn Lifland to assist you in your legal matter.

Business Litigation

When starting a business, an individual hopes to focus on productivity and the overall success of his or her endeavor. Very few consider the implications if the business was to get sued. As businesses get bigger, they are often more susceptible to lawsuits, both valid and superfluous. A business can be sued for a variety of reasons, including employment litigation, contract disputes, wage and hour disputes, whistleblower retaliation claims, unfair competition and trademark infractions. When a business owner grows a company, it is important to consider the litigation the business may face. Cohn Lifland is also available to assist our clients that need to assert their valid claims against other parties.

Business Formation

New Jersey is an exciting and vibrant place to live and work. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. People who take the leap to start businesses have a lot to consider.

New Jersey has always been a center of commerce. With close proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, businesses providing goods and services in the metropolitan area have always considered New Jersey to be a great home. If you are interested in forming a business in the state of New Jersey, you should contact an attorney to help you through the process. The team at Cohn Lifland is ready to guide you through business matters and help you reach your potential as the owner of a business.
