A small business can exist as a Sole Proprietorship, LLC, Corporation, or even a Partnership. Small businesses are often family-run and have additional concerns than just the profit and loss of a business. Those concerns may include Estate Planning issues such as transferring the business to the next generation or advice specific to the demographics of a close-knit community like Santa Cruz County. Additionally, business franchise owners may share similar concerns as small businesses despite having the support of the franchisor for marketing and advertising.

Our Business attorney can also help a small business with drafting contracts such as sale of goods agreement, employment contracts, or other business-related agreements.
