Legal Considerations In Financing A Start-Up
Bergen County Business Attorney for Start-Up Businesses
New Jersey continues to be a hotbed for new and emerging companies. The entrepreneurs who start these businesses must be able to raise money efficiently and sometimes rather quickly. While immersed in the hard work of raising capital, it is easy for entrepreneurs to overlook important features of the contracts and agreements into which they are entering with investors, partners, banks, and others. Such oversights can leave the entrepreneur legally vulnerable.
At M. Ross & Associates, LLC, in Englewood Cliffs, we help start-up business owners take the necessary legal steps to protect themselves and their companies. Our firm's founder, attorney Michele L. Ross, has extensive experience in all aspects of business and corporate law, having represented clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to operators of small family businesses. While you are busy borrowing money or securing investments, our Bergen County law firm can ensure that the contracts you sign benefit you, not a bank through high-interest rates or an investor through control of the company.
