Common corporate legal issues
A common problem for many businesses is that they fail to choose business structures suitable for their operational needs and goals. Selecting an appropriate structure from the start may make a difference in avoiding unnecessary costs related to changing structures at a later stage. Adopting an inappropriate structure may also open up instances of personal liability if anything were to happen.
There are no “best” or “correct” alternatives when choosing a business structure. However, if the business owner has a clear vision of the purpose and long-term goals of the business it will make the process of choosing a business structure easier.
It is essential for companies to establish Shareholders’ agreements that regulate the relationships between the shareholders. The agreement should include information about how to act in certain situations, such as if a founder wishes to leave or if the company is to be sold. Having a clear understanding of every shareholder’s responsibilities and liabilities will make it easier to operate the business in the future and is a good way to avoid disputes.
Commercial contracts are crucial for a business to operate in a secure and effective way. Contracts are used for many purposes such as regulating the relationships with customers and suppliers, employees, lessors and shareholders. All contracts should be documented in writing as it is easier to keep track of both the company’s and the counter party’s responsibilities and liabilities. If a dispute would arise it is also good idea to have documented the terms of the contracts.
Many businesses fail to protect their intellectual property and trademarks which can result in other people securing the rights. This may result in a great loss of profit since a company’s intellectual property usually constitutes a large part of the business revenues. It is therefore important to secure the rights at an early stage.
Litigation may be expensive and could end up costing a business a lot of money. It is therefore important to be careful causing disputes with other people or businesses. However, if a dispute arises it could be a better alternative to attempt to solve the issue by negotiation or mediation. By choosing an alternative dispute resolution corporations may avoid unnecessary costs.
