About
If you’re thinking about forming a typical business, you’re looking at the For Profit Formation. For profit companies make up most of the companies in the United States, and they can be corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and more. The major distinguishing benefit to having a for profit company versus a nonprofit company is the ability for the owners of the company to have a share in the profit. Sometimes this is called dividends, and other times it is called distributions.

Standard Equity Agreement

$550
Our standard contract for exchanging equity in your company for work or money. Ideal for a simple cash in exchange for equity with no complicated valuation methods or vesting schedules.

EasyFee™ Standard Equity Agreement

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, you will receive the standard Law++ Equity Agreement, tailored to your personal and business needs. This includes time for intake and time for execution and explanation.


About
Equity Agreements are one of the ways in which you can divide up your company. An Equity Agreement is used when the person you are dealing with has to give up an item of value or his time in order to be given the Equity. In certain entities, like LLCs, the Equity Agreement may be included in the Operating Agreement, but most of the time, when a person joins the team after the company has been going for some time, an Equity Agreement is the way to add him to the team.

These Equity Agreements protect the current owners from the new partner’s failure to provide the promised value. Should this occur, what the Equity Agreement does is outlines how disputes would be handled and what the new partner is entitled to despite his breach.

The main elements of an equity agreement that are focused on are how much equity, for what value, over what time, and what restrictions does this person’s equity have. Restrictions can include vesting (obtaining the equity over a period of time), voting rights, and more.

By choosing this EasyFee™ selection, you’ll receive the standard Law++ Operating Agreement, tailored to the needs of your particular company and your needs.

Does not include some more advanced provisions regarding transfers, owner rights and responsibilities, investor rights, or other more specific areas.


About

When you’re running the business on your own, the Operating Agreement will not need to be as in depth, but when you have two or more members, a detailed Operating Agreement can protect you and your business from potential major liabilities that may come up down the road.

Standard Bylaws

Standard governing document for Corporations tailored to your company’s needs. Includes standard language for transferring shares, management and operations of the company.

EasyFee™ Standard Bylaws

By choosing this EasyFee™ selection, you will receive the standard Law++ Bylaws, tailored to your personal and business needs. This process includes an intake, drafting and reviewing of the Bylaws, and time to explain the document to you and your partners. Does not include some more advanced provisions regarding transfers, shareholders’ rights and responsibilities, investor rights, or other more specific areas.


About
If you’ve formed a corporation, you need Bylaws. These are the instructions that your directors, managers and executives must follow when operating the company. Corporations are distinct from their owners and can therefore have a different set of rules that govern how they operate. The bylaws will override some of these rules and expand upon others, all depending on your preferences.

When you are the sole owner of the corporation, your bylaws do not need to be complicated; however, when you have partners, you should spend a fair amount of time considering what each shareholder has the right to do, as well as how and when a shareholder can transfer her ownership interest. These things can greatly impact how your business is to run.

This also includes time to explain the details of the agreement to all the partners involved.

About
If you have a partnership, a Partnership Agreement is a must. The Partnership Agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of the partners in the partnership as well as any rules and regulations for the operation of the company.

One of the largest issues with partnerships is that the partners come to a point where they cannot agree on an important decision. Once this happens, typically, the partnership would have to fail or a level of animosity would form when one of the partners does not get her way. To alleviate this, a partnership agreement provides clear dispute settlement procedures as well as how decisions are made. Such a plan gives clear expectations to all partners, and therefore, feelings are not hurt.

About
Service contracts are at the core of every company, from contracts with vendors and people you’ve hired, to your standard contract that you use when contracting out your own services. A service contract can be very simple, or it can be very complex, all depending on the desires of both parties. What is the most important is that it is clearly understood by both sides. Because they are so common and at the core of the business, they can result in a lot of issues if you’re not sure they say what you intend them to say.

Standard Nondisclosure
Agreement


$250A standard unilateral or bilateral nondisclosure with very limited modifications.

EasyFee™ Standard Nondisclosure Agreement

If you choose this EasyFee™ selection, our attorneys will draft a Standard Nondisclosure Agreement that only requires a disclosing and receiving party to be filled in.


About
Nondisclosure agreements protect your company from harm that results from the disclosure of confidential information like trade secrets, client lists, and more. The nondisclosure agreement is an individualized approach to intellectual property protection. Before you have patent, trademark or copyright protection, you will want nondisclosure agreements to ensure that your ideas are not stolen from you. Other items, which are not protected by patents, trademarks or copyrights, can still be protected through the liberal use of nondisclosure agreements.

The downfall of nondisclosure agreements is the fact that once the information is publicly known, you no longer have the protection they come with. You can only go after the one person who disclosed, if he had signed a nondisclosure before the disclosure of information. If he doesn’t have the ability to reimburse you for the damage he did to you, you may be at a massive loss without any recourse.

Standard Employee Handbook

EasyFee™ Standard Employee Handbook

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, you will receive a protective employee handbook which outlines policies and procedures that help limit the liability of you and your business.

Although this employee handbook does not cover every aspect of corporate culture, it provides enough content to protect the business owner and establish a relationship built on realistic expectations, trust and understanding.


About
Employees come with all sorts of rules and regulations, but the good news is that most employees are at-will employees, meaning that you can fire them at any time for nearly any reason. The problems sneak up when your expectations of the position do not match your employee’s expectations. To prevent this disconnect between expectations, you should provide your employees with a handbook that illustrates what should be expected of him or her.

Although you will not be completely protect from disgruntled employees, the employee handbook at least gives you something to lean on with internal procedures that your employee will have to agree to in order to begin working for you, and continue working for you.

Standard Employee Contract

$500
Contract that outlines expectations, disciplinary provisions and compensation. Does not include non-competition provisions.

EasyFee™ Standard Employee Contract

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, your small business will get an employee contract built to the specifications of the job you need to fill. Our attorneys will work to create something that not only covers you in case of disputes, but also something that properly outlines the expectations of both parties to the contract.

Our attorneys can also generate a standardized employee contract for you and your small business if you have the need to fill several positions through the use of employee contracts.


About
Employee contracts are very different from employee handbooks. Normally, employees are at-will employees, and an employee contract may or may not change the nature of that relationship. An at-will employee can be fired at any time for almost any reason. These employee contracts may limit the ability of your small business to fire this new employee. It is one of the many concerns you should have when drafting your employee contract.

Employee contracts lay out the rights and responsibilities of the employee and the business while ensuring that the expectations of both parties are clearly stated. Most importantly, employee contracts ensure that both the employee and the business have the same expectations for this new relationship. A large number of employment disputes can be avoided completely through the up front planning of the employee’s duties and rights, whether in contract form or not.

EasyFee™ Standard Key Employee Contract

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, your small business will get an employee contract built to the specifications of the job you need to fill. Our attorneys will work to create something that not only covers you in case of disputes, but also something that properly outlines the expectations of both parties to the contract.

A key employee contract will differ slightly from a standard employee contract in that it will generally include incentives for performance or long term dedication to the company. Many key employees involve a large amount of investment from the business, and therefore, the company will want to add some additional protections in case the relationship does not work out.

Standard Executive or
Director Contract


$600A standard Key Employee Contract that outlines rights, responsibilities and compensation, as well as incentive payments. This includes information about officer or director duties.

EasyFee™ Standard Executive or Director Contract

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, your small business will get an executive or director contract built to the specifications of the job you need to fill. Our attorneys will work to create something that not only covers you in case of disputes, but also something that properly outlines the expectations of both parties to the contract.

An executive or director contract is specific to the rules of your own company and relies heavily on the operating agreement or bylaws you’ve already created. Since executives and directors are responsible for the long term direction of the company, these contracts take into account long term growth potential and tend to focus more heavily on issues that may come up in the future rather than on the immediate duties of the person.


About
Directors are the highest level managers of a corporation and many times, limited liability companies. A director’s role in the company is to plan out the long term success of the company as well as set policies and procedures the company must abide by. A director’s job also includes finding and appointing those managers or executives that will be responsible for the day to day operations of the business.

Executives are tasked with managing the company on a day to day basis. Depending on the executive’s position, he or she may be responsible with the overall company management or something smaller like marketing or technology for CMOs or CTOs, respectively. Executives must follow the rules given to them through the company articles, bylaws or operating agreement and any direction the board of directors gives to them.

Non-Compete
Enforceability Review


$400A review of a non-compete to determine if it is enforceable, unenforceable, or too close to tell. Clients will receive an analysis of the factors and how likely the agreement would be enforced.

EasyFee™ Non-Compete Enforceability Review

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, our attorneys will apply our proprietary analysis to determine the likelihood of your non-compete to be enforced in North Carolina courts as well as present how much cost and effort you will likely have to give up to fight for or against this non-compete.


About
Non-compete or restrictive covenant clauses are enforceable in North Carolina; however, depending on the type of non-compete, there are specific criteria that must be met and weighed against the other party’s interests. Generally, in order to be valid, these must be in writing and contain several other key limitations.

Employee or Independent
Contractor Analysis


$450A standard approach to analyze the appropriate factors in an employment situation to determine whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor.

EasyFee™ Employee or Independent Contractor Analysis

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, our attorneys will apply our proprietary analysis to determine the likelihood of your worker being an independent contractor or an employee under the IRS and the Department of Labor standards for both. You will receive a written opinion from us with our advisement as to which category your worker falls into, or if it is too close to determine based on the criteria we will list for you.


About
Companies, many times, would prefer to have an independent contractor over an employee in order to save from having to withhold social security taxes, pay unemployment insurance and pay workman’s compensation. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of misinformation out there regarding classification of workers. The IRS and Department of Labor are investing large amounts of money to investigate and resolve misclassification issues which ends up hurting small business owners’ profitability far more than proper classification from the beginning.

About

Terms and conditions are the legal requirements a person would have for continuing to use your website, assuming the user knew of the terms and conditions and had a chance to review them. Especially if your site is membership based, you will want to put these somewhere noticeable and require the user to agree to them ahead of time.

About
Websites, like any portion of your business can lead to risk, but depending on the type of business you run, the liability found in your website may be of a completely different nature than the risk you find elsewhere in your business. Typically, lawsuits that result from website based businesses are because of false advertising or frustration with the service provided by the site.

Comprehensive analysis of your company’s legal situation. Includes formation, contracts, standard procedures, human resources and more.

EasyFee™ Company Risk Assessment

When you choose this EasyFee™ selection, you will receive an extensive analysis of the potential risks of your company. Our attorneys thoroughly examine formation issues, taxation structures, employee agreements and policies, company formalities, service contracts and relationships, website content, advertising content, customer complaint procedures, operating procedures, storefront liability and general process driven risks that may be present. What you receive from this selection is a detailed report broken down into the separate areas where risk might be involved, including an analysis of how much risk each area might include and, if possible, some solutions on limiting the risk.


About
Owning and operating a company is full of risk, but fortunately, most of this risk can be managed. The first step to managing it is knowing where the risk is.

Liability can arise from all sorts of places. An improper formation can create larger than acceptable taxation, or even increased personal liability. Contracts generally always leave open some room for risk. Employees and storefront space are a major source of headaches and painful penalties if not carefully taken care of. Everything in business comes with some risk.

Risk is only one half of the coin. The other half is the amount that your risk. A small contract might leave you with a small risk, or it may yield massive risk, depending on the circumstances. As a business cannot remove all risk, an owner should take care to focus on limiting those risks that are higher in value, higher in potential to cause harm and those that can be eliminated at a lower cost.

About
Contracts are about expectations, but not everything put in a contract is actually legally enforceable, and some provisions actually leave you exposed to additional risk.
