Get Affordable Legal Help from a Small Business Lawyer in Minneapolis
Small businesses have the same legal needs as large corporations – their pockets just aren’t as deep. Keystone Legal PLLC provides big-firm legal services at prices that small to medium-sized businesses can afford. Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, we serve companies throughout the Twin Cities area,  greater Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Business Formation
There are so many choices when it comes to the type of business you form:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Limited liability companies (LLC)
  • Partnerships
  • C corporations
  • S corporations
  • Limited liability partnerships

The type of business structure you choose will affect your liability, operations and tax payments. A partnership naturally is more complicated than a sole proprietorship. You may enter into buy/sell agreements, partners’ agreements or member control agreements. I am an experienced small business attorney and I can guide you through the formation and documentation of your business.

Business Succession Planning
You may have spent your entire life building your business. Now you want to retire, but the kids aren’t interested in taking over. You need to name a successor from “the outside.” Or perhaps yours is a family business in which everyone plays an active role. You want to recognize their contributions and abilities. Whatever the situation, you want to ensure that the business continues after you leave the playing field. I can work with you and your estate planning team to help you make your business succession plans, draw up the necessary paperwork and set your company’s face to the future.

Aggressive Contract Negotiation and Review
A “handshake agreement” is worth the paper it’s written on. Before you enter into any kind of contractual agreement, you should have the contract reviewed by a knowledgeable small business lawyer who will read it with your best interests in mind. I can negotiate changes that will protect your business and your rights.
