Business and Corporate Law

The Carbajal Law Firm, P.C. offers a full range of business law advice for entrepreneurs, startups, and established businesses.  Representation can begin at the critical pre-formation stage, through and including those stages associated with a company’s day-to-day operations and growth.


Pre-formation Stage

During the pre-formation stage, it is critical to lay the proper legal groundwork and to ensure all the necessary legal formalities and protections are in place.  With that in mind, our firm is able to provide legal services on the following:

Pre-Formation Documentation and Activities

  • Idea Brainstorming and Legal Strategizing
  • Business Plans
  • Pre-formation Founders Agreement
  • Advice on proper selection of business structure entity
  • S-Corp vs. C-Corp vs. LLC


Formation Stage Representation

A proper and thorough formation of a business entity must be done with care to avoid problems down the road. Thus, our firm’s representation includes:

Formal Creation of the Business Entity

  • Drafting of Organizational Documents
  • Certificate of Incorporation (Corporation)
  • Articles of Organization (LLC)

Formation-Related Corporate Documentation

Formation-Related Corporate Resolutions

  • Employment Agreements
  • Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Agreements

Small to Medium-sized "Mergers & Acquisitions" 

M&A work is not just for the General Electrics of the world.  Indeed, the same legal issues arise for even the smallest of companies.  If your company is purchasing the stock or assets of another private entity– or is selling the same — our firm has the requisite experience to assist you.  We can advise on:

  • Stock versus Asset Transaction Determinations
  • Letter of Intent/Term Sheet Drafting and Negotiations
  • Asset Purchase Agreements
