Commercial and Business Law
Starting a business can be financially and personally rewarding. At some point, however, many business owners will need the services of an experienced attorney. New Jersey business lawyer Raymond A. Grimes, founder of the Grimes Law Firm, has more than 25 years of experience helping residents of New Jersey with their business’ legal issues. Whether you have questions about filing a lawsuit or need guidance in the business formation process, the Grimes Law Firm can help find the best solution to your legal needs.Outstanding Service for Business Owners
In a survey conducted by the email marketing company Constant Contact, 82 percent of small business owners say that referrals from loyal customers are the best way to grow a business. The Grimes Law Firm, itself a small business, understands this concept and prides itself on effective and dedicated client service. We know that just as every business is different, every client has unique needs. Whether you want to aggressively litigate a breach of contract case, need advice on corporate formation, or have been served with an employment lawsuit, the Grimes Law Firm will take the time to understand your business and work with you to solve your problems.Experienced Contract Dispute Litigator
At the Grimes Law Firm, we have significant experience helping businesses prosecute and defend contract disputes. Almost every business must deal with negotiating, signing, and enforcing contracts, and when a contract dispute arises, an experienced business attorney is a valuable asset. We understand that while fundamental contract law is the same for everyone, every contract must be thoroughly examined to determine the best course of action.
Business owners should know that they may be bound by a contract without realizing it. Generally, it is a myth that a contract must be in writing and signed by both parties to be enforceable. In some cases this is true, but often it is not. Conversely, even if a signed contract does exist, it may have provisions that New Jersey law has deemed invalid. An experienced business attorney can help you navigate the complex world of contract law.Knowledgeable Business Formation Lawyer
Businesses often start out as sole proprietorships, where the owner does not have much liability protection, but can essentially run the business however he or she pleases. As a business grows, it is important to consider the benefits and costs of reforming a company into an organized entity. At the Grimes Law Firm, we can help you decide whether to incorporate, form a partnership, or organize in some other form that will provide the best balance of liability protection, tax consequences, and reporting requirements.Helping Your Business Succeed
