Contracts - As they say, the devil is in the details. Let
us help you with the details of your business contracts. From creation
to review and execution, we know where the rubber meets the road.
Employees - Having employees is essential to a growing business
but employees are human and often make mistakes that could affect
you or your business.
Example: Employer A sent employee B to pick up some money. Hours
after the pick up, the employee quit and the money was no where
to be found. Years later when employee B was applying for a job,
employer A was asked to provide a reference. Employer A was subsequently
sued by employee B. Murnane & O'Neill successfully represented
Employer A in the suit.
Entity Creation - There are various types of business entity
choices depending on the type of business you want to run, the type
of tax situation you have and how you wish to manage your business.
We can help you choose the right entity for your situation, get
the business up and running and help you manage your legal issues
that arise throughout the life of the business.
Buying & Selling Businesses - If you are looking to
get into business or get out of one, we have the requisite experience
to help you with this transition.
Licensing - The administrative process that comes along
with licensing in Maryland can be tricky. Whether you are looking
to start a restaurant or you want a liquor license, we can help.
We have helped others through this process and know what is needed
to get your through the system.
Disputes Among Business Partners - Businesses often start
out with a great flurry of optimism and hope. Unfortunately, not
all ventures are successful. Often times the business partners find
that they have many differences of opinion and many issues arise
such as non-compete agreements and splitting of profits. Murnane
& O'Neill has successfully represented partners who were interested
in winding down their business and wanted to keep their partners
from taking clients and competing with them.
