If you are buying or selling a small business, you need help. Part of a good sale is insuring all parties understand what is being sold and what is being bought. There are many opportunities here for misunderstanding. A good lawyer will be an invaluable asset in making sure your sale goes through smoothly.
Don’t lose a sale – work with a knowledgeable attorney who can help all parties reach their goals.
Employee handbooks, why bother? There are good legal and business reasons to have one and making sure yours reflects current law in Wisconsin will save you time and money. Whether you are writing a handbook from scratch or have a long-standing handbook, you need to have yours reviewed by an experienced local attorney, one who is knowledgeable about Wisconsin employment law. There are provisions that can be incorporated in a handbook – such as safe harbor provisions for wage and hour complaints – that can save an employer real money.

Working with a partner or co-owner in a business can be great for both of you: shared duties, special expertise and just a general camaraderie make your experience easier and more enjoyable.

An agreement ahead of such events goes a long way in making what may already be a difficult time less stressful.
