Northern Virginia Small Business Lawyer

Helping You Build and Grow Your Business

Starting and running a small business can be challenging for a variety of reasons, but getting the legal representation you need shouldn’t be one of them. Whether you are getting ready to launch or are pursuing new opportunities, The Herndon Law Firm is here to help you build and grow your business. Whatever your business, we deliver responsive, cost-effective, and results-oriented legal services. 

An Approach Tailored to Meet the Unique Needs of Northern Virginia Small Businesses

As a small business ourselves, we understand the challenges that small businesses face. We also know that your business is an extension of yourself and an embodiment of your goals and ambitions. As a result, we take the time to get to know you and to understand your business from the inside out. This helps us tailor the representation to your unique needs and scale our services accordingly. Your business is unique and deserves better than one-size-fits-all legal representation. Ultimately, we aim to be more than just your lawyer. We want to be a partner in your success.  

Business Formation

It is easy to get lost in the excitement of launching a new venture. Few things are more important than making a good start, however. If you are starting a new business, we can provide guidance on what you should consider when forming your new entity. We can help you choose the right structure as well as draft and file the right documents with the State Corporation Commission. We also can serve as your registered agent. The sooner you get in touch, the sooner we can help your business get off to the best possible start.

Contract Drafting, Negotiation, and Analysis

Contracts are the backbone of any business, regardless of size. Unfortunately, many businesses rely upon form contracts to get things done. While form contracts are adequate in most situations, many business owners discover their short-comings at the worst possible time. We provide the following services for our clients: 

  • We can draft customized contracts for use in your business that provide the legal protection you need

  • We can review contracts you have been asked to sign and identify potential issues

  • We can negotiate mutually agreeable contracts with other parties 

  • We can enforce contract terms and advise you of your options when a breach has occurred

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Invest in the future of your business by letting us help you with your contracts. 

General Counsel Services

Most small businesses do not have the need or the resources to support in-house counsel on a full-time basis. Unfortunately, problems can still arise, and finding a lawyer to answer a single question or deal with a single issue can be time-consuming. The Herndon Law Firm can provide those services without having to either hire in-house counsel or try to build a new relationship. We can scale our services and our fees to meet your business needs and ensure that you have legal guidance when you need it.

Business Disputes

Sooner or later, disputes become inevitable. These disputes can consume valuable time and resources that could be better spent on your day-to-day business operations. Whether it is a dispute with an employee, a vendor, or a customer, we can help you manage and resolve your dispute so that you can focus on building and growing your business. You can rely on us to provide candid advice as to your options for resolving the dispute so that you can choose the solution that best meets your goals.
