Jump Start a New Business

Business Maintenance

We offer a convenient business maintenance program designed to help new and existing clients obtain and maintain their business objectives.

The economic reality for new businesses is harsh. Almost 70% of small businesses go out of business within their first two years. And only half manage to survive more than five years. If a personal or business emergency occurs, most businesses struggle to even keep their doors open for a few days. This high rate of failure is largely due to poor business planning. Many business owners fail to consider such things as ownership succession, control, or management of a business with little long-term planning, especially in event of any type of emergency.

We have crafted our maintenance program to give your business, big or small, an edge maximizing your opportunity to survive and thrive in an otherwise volatile economy. Specifically, our program is a formal maintenance plan that ensures you never miss a filing deadline, your documents are always current, and gives you the peace of mind knowing your business and assets are protected. The program is part legal, and part non-legal, designed to minimize external costs and maximize profit, resulting in lower costs for you and more savings for your business.

We focus on our client’s business needs so whether you need assistance with the creation of your business model or drafting employment contracts, we are ready to provide you with sound, professional advice and effective real-world solutions.
