Brooklyn has a population of over a quarter-million individuals and, according to the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, includes more than 169,000 businesses. Attractions like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building draw thousands of tourists each year. This slice of New York, approximately 97 square miles, represents one of the most vibrant and dynamic business environments in the United States. It is governed by a network of state and federal laws and regulations. I provide professional legal advice and representation for individuals and entities wishing to do business in this ever-expanding, ever-changing section of New York.
A successful business depends on understanding the legal and regulatory environment at the state and federal levels. Failure to comply with a given law or regulation can create a situation that threatens the existence of a business, or at the very least its profitability. The possibility of such an incident makes the advice of a business law lawyer essential for those who wish to avoid costly mistakes. I help business owners and operators protect their rights and understand laws, regulations, and any specific requirements that may affect their business in Brooklyn, New York.
Understanding and dealing with tax consequences, factors of personal liability, and the protection of personal assets is a primary concern of many clients looking to start a business. As a business formation lawyer, I help clients meet these challenges. This provides a strong bulwark against future problems and possible legal issues and helps maintain smooth day-to-day operations at all levels of the organization. My advice gives prospective business owners or managers everything they need to be confident they have established a legal company, whether it is a non-profit or for-profit corporation, LLC, or partnership.
Large or small, the internal arrangement of your company is an important factor for success and growth. Small businesses present challenges that are different than those of large companies and corporations, and are no less important. As a business management lawyer, I provide risk management by drafting contracts and designing protocols for selecting and maintaining a board of directors, officers, and executive management. Sound management practice gives business owners the confidence to grow and expand into new territories without being hampered by internal issues or organizational bottlenecks. I will make sure that your business complies with state, federal, and local labor and employment laws, and regulations specific to Brooklyn, New York.
Sometimes things don't go as planned. Sometimes new laws and regulations are enacted that directly impact the state of a business or its daily operations. Minor changes to existing law can have drastic effects on corporate structure and behavior. As a corporate attorney I offer robust and professional representation when you need it most. My knowledge of the Brooklyn, New York region places me in an excellent position to evaluate proposed partnerships, guide corporate policy, and identify legal issues associated with your company's services and/or products. This includes advice on marketing materials and advertisements. I'll make sure you have a clear understanding of your rights, as well as your responsibilities to the public, customers, employees, partners and shareholders.
Not all businesses are started from scratch. Many are bought, sold, merged and acquired every day through a variety of activities. As a business transactions lawyer I advise clients on the legal ramifications associated with becoming a new owner of an existing business, whether Brooklyn-based or located elsewhere. This practice covers the legal matters surrounding the sale of a business as well as merger with another business or entity in New York or elsewhere.
A good law office does more than just help a client set up a business. Ongoing tasks and day-to-day operations must be done in compliance with the regulatory environment. Dependability and consistency go hand-in-hand with profitability, and professional legal advice does far more than provide simple peace of mind. It is often the difference between success and failure, or profitability and debt. The Law Office of Irena Zolotova, Esq., located at 1529 Voorhies Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, is uniquely qualified to help you meet these intricate and ever-evolving legal challenges.
