Incorporation

A new business must choose its structure. There are many options to choose from. We can help you evaluate your business’s needs and see which path you should follow.

Often, a large business needs to incorporate. Incorporation allows your business to act as a single entity. There are many benefits to taking this action, but the business also takes on a greater amount of responsibility. You will have to answer to a board, investors, and new government restrictions. Allow us to help you navigate this new structure and purpose. We offer our clients high-quality advice and direction as they take this step.

Registration is a lengthy process with many steps, and each step contains its own list of steps. You need a trusted, capable law firm on your side. Allow Klein DeNatale Goldner to help successfully register and guide your new corporation.

Hiring Employees

Typically, a new business is comprised only of those who own it. Eventually, as your business expands, you must hire new employees. This process is not as simple as just bringing someone on board. There are legal hurdles you must jump, and state standards you must follow. Klein DeNatale Goldner can help as you grow and hire new help.

We can provide counsel on employment law. California is known for its rigid rules regarding employment, and there are federal standards to follow as well. For example, you must take the minimum wage into account, knowing that you cannot pay below state and federal requirements. You also must consider that after a certain number of hours worked, employees earn overtime or insurance. You must take workers’ compensation and a myriad of other matters into consideration. Our firm knows that in employment law, prevention is key. Helping you structure your business, we may be able to stop problems before they begin.

Sometimes, despite everyone’s best efforts, litigation occurs. You could be accused of unfair practices, underpaying, discrimination, and so on. While helping you avoid these issues for the future, we can also work with them in the present. We know employment law, and we can help defend you against such allegations.
