At Burke Law we recognize and embrace the value small businesses have in our local economy. We know that Vermont’s entrepreneurial spirit contributes to the state’s unique character. We can provide affordable services to help your small business grow while avoiding potentially costly legal pitfalls.

Formal Business Structures: Protect Your Business and Yourself

Do you know that if you are operating your business as a sole proprietorship or general partnership, your personal assets may be subject to the claims of your business creditors? The longer you operate without a formal business structure, the more exposed you are to risk. There are a variety of ways to structure your small business that will protect both your personal assets and your investment.

Government Regulation: Compliance and Awareness

Every business operates within a regulatory environment, many of which are quite complex. No business wants to run afoul of state or federal regulatory enforcement authorities;  that can result in considerable time and expense. We can meet the needs of your business to ensure compliance with relevant state and federal laws and regulations.

Business Negotiations: Manage Your Risk

We can also help you negotiate and allocate legal risk during contract negotiations and business deals so that your investments and products are protected and the return on your investment is maximized.

Which Business Structure Do You Need?

No matter the size of your business, we can help you understand your structural options, register your business with the Secretary of State, comply with relevant regulations, and protect your interests during deals.

Give us a call today and let us help protect your business and make it a success.
