We can also prepare employment agreements, shareholder agreements and any other forms necessary to limit personal liability and run your business efficiently and effectively.

Our firm advises clients who are just starting businesses in selecting the best form of legal entity for their business. We help our clients by drafting and reviewing contracts, and providing them with practical, analyses to assist them in their business decisions. Our firm assists clients in developing policies, procedures, plans and agreements for both employees and contractors.

Regardless of an organization’s size or prominence, legal problems affecting its financial status and reputation require practical solutions. At McCarthy & Akers we view our clients’ legal problems as business problems, and work creatively and quickly to solve them.
