At Lewis & Lin, our Small Business Lawyers provide sophisticated and experienced services for our clients who own and operate small businesses. We handle new business formations, licensing and litigation. Our client-focused practice puts the clients’ needs first, and our attorneys work directly on our clients’ important legal matters. Because we operate without a bulky chain of command, our services are much more cost-effective compared to larger firms.

New Business Formation
If you’re ready to set up a new business, there is a dizzying array of questions you must now face. Lewis & Lin attorneys meet with each client, thoroughly reviewing their circumstances, resources, goals, and expectations in order to help them decide what type of business structure they would like to set up.

Do you plan on bringing in investors? Do you plan to eventually sell the business? What sort of liability will your type of business incur? We address all these questions and then walk you through the process of acquiring a Taxpayer ID and setting up your business as a federal and state-recognized entity.

Small Business Litigation
Our services benefit our business clients from the time the business is formed, throughout the life of the business. We provide counsel for day-to-day operations, but we also help businesses navigate the contract disputes and litigation matters that inevitably arise. We handle cases involving:

  • Commercial litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Intellectual property
  • Trademark infringement
  • Breach of contract

Licensing Agreements
Lewis & Lin attorneys handle various types of licensing agreements relevant to small businesses, including:

  • Web agreements
  • Services agreements (“Terms of Use”)
  • Privacy policies
  • Marketing agreements
  • Software licensing agreements
  • Outsourcing
  • Content licensing agreements
  • Distribution agreements
  • Development agreements

Trademarks and IP Rights
If you have recently started or are currently starting a new business, this is the ideal time to consider how to safeguard your company’s valuable intellectual property. Lewis & Lin LLC can advise you on how to ensure maximum levels of trademark protections for your company and brand names and can help you avoid investing significant resources in marketing and advertising in a potentially infringing name. For technology and creative businesses, it may be appropriate to put trade secret protections in place, for example, through copyrights and other ownership of your website to your company.
