New Business Representation

Are you starting a new business? We would be happy to discuss with you the pros and cons of different types of legal entities and then create the documents to form the right type of business entity for your goals. Some forms of legal entities require you to report more information to your state than others. Some disclose more information about the ownership and management of the entity to the public than others, which may be desirable or undesirable given your unique circumstances. Not all entities are treated the same for purposes of taxation by the IRS and your state's department of revenue. The protection from liability that a legal entity provides will also vary depending which form of legal entity you select. Jarvis Law Firm, PC can help you sort through these considerations and others to get your new start-up off the ground.

Small Business Investing

Are you an investor in a small business with a minority interest? Investing in a small business that you do not control can be risky. You are subject to the risk that a majority of ownership could exclude you from management and decline to make distributions of profits to ownership; this is called being "frozen out." The result of being frozen out is that your interest in the business is effectively worthless. These risks should be addressed by making certain the entity's governing documents, bylaws or operating agreement usually, include specific language that protects the minority interest holders' investment and reduces or eliminates the risk of any one of them being frozen out. Jarvis Law Firm would be happy to review your contracts and business documents to make sure they are in line with your goals as an investor.

Is management taking actions that are self-serving or against the best interests of the business? Have you already been frozen out? Your state has specific statutes that give you some options to protect your interest, but be aware, those laws have strictly enforced prerequisites for their use and tight deadlines. If you feel like your business partners are acting in a manner that is inconsistent with the best interests of the business or your interests as an investor, it is crucial that you consult with a business representation attorney quickly to make sure your rights to utilize your legal protections do not expire.

Business Litigation, Business Collections

If your business is in a dispute with a vendor, customer or competitor, Jarvis Law Firm is ready to be your teammate to resolve the issue as quickly and amicably as possible. Litigation is expensive for all parties and in most cases it makes the most sense to seek a reasonable agreement as quickly as possible. There are some cases, however, where litigation is the only avenue to resolution. Attorney Adam Jarvis has represented hundreds of businesses from Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana throughout his career in business litigation in both state and federal trial courts, trial court settlement programs and courts of appeal. If you have a business relationship that is headed in the wrong direction, call an experienced business litigation lawyer today at (251) 219-9706 or email us at adam@jarvislawfirmpc.com.

Permitting, Licensing, State & Federal Regulation

Are you having trouble with a state or federal entity that regulates permitting, licensing, worker safety, the environment or your industry? Most regulatory bodies have an appeal process; however, that process includes deadlines and procedures that can sometimes be difficult to understand. Jarvis Law Firm would be happy to help present your best case and to protect your rights before the regulatory body that is creating problems for you. Contact us today and we will be happy to schedule a free consultation at (251) 219-9706 or adam@jarvislawfirmpc.com.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I serve as board chair of a Birmingham non-profit. Attorney Adam Jarvis was instrumental in our organization receiving an award of $1,375,655 in damages as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. He very skillfully dealt with several legal issues that could have resulted in denial of our claim. Lee
★★★★★
I recently worked with Adam at Jarvis Law firm to create an LLC for my speech therapy business. He took the time to create the LLC for me and more importantly, to answer all of my questions. He was courteous and thorough in explaining the process throughout. I would highly recommend Jarvis Law firm for any of your law needs! Rebecca Bowen
