Chicago Start-Ups and Business Lawyer

How a Lawyer Protects Your Business

A Chicago Business Lawyer protects your business by making sure your business starts off right. Whether launching a start-up or forming a partnership, our lawyers protect your interests and provide strategic guidance. We specialize in business law and company formation, but we also handle general business deals and transactions.

When you open an Illinois business, it is important to understand the differences between corporations and LLCs in Illinois. Most corporations in Illinois are governed by the Business Corporations Act of 1983 and LLCs are governed by the Illinois Limited Liability Company Act. When you do not create your operating agreements (for LLCs) or shareholder agreements and bylaws (for corporations), if there is a dispute or problem with your business, then you are stuck with whatever those laws require. By having your own corporate documents, you get to decide what happens if you have a business dispute or if you pass away.

Additionally, we assist with compliance under the Corporate Transparency Act and secure submission of Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) reports for businesses across the country.

We serve businesses in Oak Brook, Burr Ridge, Naperville, Hinsdale, Lombard, Addison, Downers Grove, Oak Park, Darien, Chicago, Lisle, Westmont, Willowbrook, Clarendon Hills, and the Chicagoland Area. Don’t let legal hurdles slow down your Chicago start-up journey.

Danya was a big help in setting up my business. I had worked with other attorneys before that didn’t get it right. Motiva Law communicated better, responded quicker, and completed the complicated process with no issues.

Business Lawyer in Chicago FAQ

Business law, also known as corporate law, is a broad area of law that focuses on deal-making and risk mitigation. This includes contracts, business mergers and acquisitions, franchises, and legal compliance. Some business lawyers go to court to litigate disputes, and some do not. Our practice focuses on the transactions only.

For business transactions, you do not need a business lawyer, but it’s typically unwise to try to handle the matter on your own. Even a minor mistake can land you and your business in legal trouble later on, which can destroy your assets and your business. In addition, most sophisticated business owners focus their time on their business and not on aspects where a trained professional is better and more efficient.
