In the modern world, entrepreneurship has become a viable and highly respected form of business. Entrepreneurs stimulate the economy by bringing innovative ideas, technologies, and products to the forefront of the commercial world. They improve our quality of life, lift morale and even promote freedom by reducing our dependence on corporate giants. Starting a business, however, is no easy task. It demands careful planning, time management, financing, and the ability to balance your professional and personal life. It also requires an extensive knowledge of Business Law.
Christopher Duren knows that Business Law is a complex system that most people, even businessmen, don’t fully understand. This is why he and his team of professionals at his firm Duren Law Offices are committed to providing entrepreneurs with the business legal services they need to be successful. Business attorneys such as Mr. Duren are valuable because of their ability to guide potential business owners through the legal concerns they will inevitably face, including business formation, drafting business contracts and agreements, non-competition agreements, stock purchase agreements, debt collection, construction liens, and the sale and purchase of businesses.
A major decision in the initial phase of starting a business is choosing the right type of entity to form, which will determine the business’s exposure to liability, tax treatment, and many other factors. Many people seeking to start a business do not know the difference between a Partnership, Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). The experts at Duren Law Offices are more than happy to explain these options to their clients, and to assist them in choosing the option that will be most beneficial for their professional goals. Mr. Duren and his colleagues pride themselves on their ability to listen to and counsel their clients with the highest level of competency, ensuring that all decisions are based on a solid understanding of the law.
As a business owner himself, Mr. Duren understands how imperative it is to use sound judgment and awareness when embarking on a business venture. Directly after obtaining his law degree at Samford University, Cumberland School of Law, Mr. Duren returned to his hometown of Waunakee, Wisconsin to open his small town law firm, Duren Law Offices, LLC. In 2003 he opened the Wisconsin Title Group, LLC, a title company that specializes in real estate closings. Mr. Duren is well versed in the necessary steps to opening your own business; if you’re in need of professional business counseling, give him a call today.
