Michigan Entity Types
In Michigan, there are 4 primary business entity classifications:
- Sole proprietorships
- Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs).
An entity can be for-profit, not-for-profit, or non-profit, furthermore.
Which entity is right for you?
It will depend upon the nature of your business, the number of partners or owners involved, and a variety of other factors.
Contract Drafting & Review
Contracts are legally binding agreement made between parties that acknowledges the rights and duties that govern the arrangement. Parties may go through several drafts and negotiations when drafting a contract before the finalization of the official contract. Although individuals can write their own contracts, the assistance of an experienced Michigan business law attorney will greatly maximize the odds that a court will agree, later, that the contract is binding.
Noble Path Trademark Law can draft or review and provide an opinion upon a variety of Michigan business contracts, including:
- Purchase and Sale agreements.
- Real estate mortgage, note, land contract, and related property agreements.
- Commercial and residential property and real estate leases.
- None-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).
- Shareholder and partner agreements.
- And more.
A contract that is improperly drafted may be voided by a Michigan judge. Noble Path Trademark Law will ensure that your contract is what it appears to be and that it stands up to court scrutiny.
Employee Manual Drafting
Increasingly, Michigan and Federal law require that your enterprise provides, maintains, and continually updates an Employee Manual. An Employee Manual is the best means of ensuring that your staff members and personnel understand their rights, limitations, restrictions, and benefits on a comprehensive and company-wide basis. An Employee Manual and a signed agreement of receipt from an employee can greatly obviate your enterprise's liability for any alleged breach of workplace rights.
It is essential that your Employee Manually be specifically drafted for your organization and not simply a form document downloaded from the internet. Your Employee Manual must comply with Michigan law on a number of different grounds—and it must be updated annually to reflect ongoing changes in the law.
