Business Formation & Operation Attorney in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

Few things are as exciting—or as frightening—as starting your own business. As a new business owner, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the number of decisions that need to be made, and the number of factors that seem to be out of your control entirely. I completely understand. In my more than two decades of real-world business experience—from real estate development to corporate IT to home building operations—I’ve often felt the same way. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from the business world, it’s that you have more control than you think. You can make certain decisions right now that can help you and your company down the road.

At North Star Legal Services, LLC, I help new and seasoned business owners operate their businesses in Gettysburg, Elizabethtown, Harrisburg, Hershey, and the rest of Pennsylvania. Get in touch with my firm by setting up a consultation. If you can’t make it to one of my physical office locations in Elizabethtown or Gettysburg, I’m happy to come to you.

Knowing every last detail of business law in Pennsylvania is a lot to ask of anyone. If you have decided to form a new business but need guidance on the specifics of different business entities and how to go about filing the necessary paperwork, I’m here to help.

 The truth is, there are a great many laws and regulations that may affect your business every single day — from zoning and land use regulations to employment laws and environmental requirements. For any company, sitting down with a lawyer and discussing these issues before there is a crisis can save a great deal of time and money. As a dedicated business formation attorney, I take a proactive approach to helping you build your business. 

The Legal Aspects Of Operating Your Enterprise

So many things can go wrong with a business. I’ve spent a large part of my career getting familiar with the pitfalls and potential missteps that can lead to problems. Let me help you avoid these hazards. Either virtually or in-person, I provide legal services to individuals and businesses in Pennsylvania who need help with:

  • Drafting & reviewing contracts
  • Licensing & permits
  • Avoiding legal obstacles
  • Navigating potential business disputes

Some small businesses assume that when they begin, they do not need to bother with too many formalities. They trust that everyone is on the same page and has the same goal. However, the difficulties begin when too little—or too much—money is being made, and individuals' expectations start to diverge. Instead of sweeping the legalities under the rug, make a different choice.

A Proactive Approach to Business Law

Here at North Star Legal Services, LLC, my real-world experience guides my legal practice. I’ve not only worked as an attorney for businesses, but I’ve also worked within the business world itself. I’ve taken on a variety of roles, from working with large corporate enterprises to assisting small startups. So, trust me when I say that taking care of the legal formalities now will make it so much easier to set expectations and prevent misunderstandings later.

A well-thought-out business plan can help you prevent disagreements, but it can also generate ideas for growth. After you’ve crafted a strong legal foundation for your business, you’ll be able to focus on actually running your business and making it thrive. I’m ready to be a sounding board for any ideas you have for the future of your company.
