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.

These days more and more consumers are getting to know the importance of real estate law in their lives. Homeowners, renters and landlords alike all come across the same hurdle when it comes to the world of real estate and in my experience it almost always involves legal procedure. The dreams that property ownership can fulfil are many but an equal if not greater number of dreams can be shattered by not knowing the rights and entitlements that surround ownership or renting. In this article I look at what characteristics to hold close when looking over any property contract and how to know whether you are doing things correctly.

First up, check the fees. Over at Duren Law Offices we have dealt with hundreds of customers who have misread contracts and jumped into a deal without checking over what is going to hit their pockets first. Fees can escalate into the hundreds of thousands depending on the state you are in and the local laws surrounding property, so it pays to look outside of the contract and into the area you are moving to before anything else. Remember, a contract is never just a singular thing, it extends into many other pockets of law that must be touched upon first for the contract to make total sense.

Another popular hiccup we witness clients making over at Duren Law Offices is that of making offers on properties. Clients who are dealing with slippery owners or landlords make the mistake of not drafting their offers properly and having them overturned or rejected in the face of other offers later on. This is why it is important to always consult a legal professional when it comes to making offers on properties. Knowing a little about the owner and previous deeds on the property will go a long way before anything else, so don’t be afraid to do some research. As always I recommend myself and my team at Duren Law Offices for such procedures and I hope that I can be of assistance to any client in need in the near future.
