Michigan Business Lawyers

Business Formation from the Ground Up

Well-conceived legal advice at the beginning of an enterprise or business expansion gives you a solid foundation on which you can build and grow successfully. When you take the time to receive the counseling you need, you avoid legal fees for undoing and redoing an ill-conceived business organization or transaction.

At Fausone Bohn, LLP, our Michigan business and commercial lawyers have been members of the New Enterprise Forum, IT Zone, Young Executives Organization (YEO), Young Presidents Organization (YPO), and of various Chambers of Commerce and nonprofit organizations. We understand corporate law very well and can help you with all your legal needs.

Contact the Ann Arbor area business law firm of Fausone Bohn, LLP, to speak with a knowledgeable, skilled business law attorney. We have more than a decade of experience representing businesses like yours.

If an employer (or potential employer) wants to prevent future problems, it needs to have a sound employment policy in place, which it enforces consistently.
