Corporate / Business Law

Corporate binderFor many people, their work is their life’s blood, and they can greatly benefit from the services of an experienced business attorney to protect their investment. At Costello Legal Services we assist clients in forming their very own businesses by starting with a rock solid foundation to build upon. We also¬†advise and counsel established business owners in all legal aspects of business operations so that they can focus their attention and energy on what they do best. Most small businesses do not need and cannot afford a full-time staff attorney so we often serve as outside counsel and trusted legal adviser to clients.

Business owners who want to avoid personal liability for business debts and obligations normally choose to incorporate or form limited liability companies. Unfortunately, simply filling out forms and paying a filing fee to the Secretary of State is only one of many steps that must be taken to provide true limited liability to the owners. We will review your existing corporate records and processes and make recommendations on specific steps you should take to ensure your personal assets are truly protected.
