Augusta Business Lawyers Provide Essential Legal Services

Experienced transaction attorneys protects your interests so you can achieve your goals

Located less than three hours from Atlanta on the shores of the Savannah River across from South Carolina, Georgia’s second largest city is open for business. After a decade of explosive growth in the 1990s, Augusta has become a regional center of medicine, biotechnology, and cybersecurity. Dozens of leading American companies have headquarters or distribution centers here, making Richmond and the surrounding counties a dynamic region to do business. If you are considering opening a business in the Augusta area, Joseph T. Rhodes Law Firm can provide the business formation services you need. If you are already doing business here, we can assist with essential legal work, such as contract drafting and review, regulatory compliance, and taxation planning. Our attorneys have been assisting Georgia businesses since 1988. Whatever your business goals, we’re prepared to provide a legal strategy that facilitates your success.

Skilled business advisers provide formation assistance throughout Richmond, Columbia and Burke counties

If you are hoping to start a business in the greater Augusta area, our business lawyers provide trustworthy guidance on the necessary steps, including:

  • Choice of entity — In Georgia, you can choose among several business entities, such as corporations, LLCs, general partnerships and LLPs. How you structure your business impacts issues such as ownership rights, personal liability, tax filings, and how you can raise capital to finance the enterprise.
  • Company bylaws — We can draft effective rules for governing and operating your business that help you build an ethical company culture and keep you in compliance with all applicable state and federal laws.
  • Land use and permitting — We advise you on real estate leases and purchases and help you get the state and federal permits you need to begin operations.
  • Buy and sell agreements — If you form a partnership, you want to have a plan for moving on if the relationship does not work out. A buy and sell agreement among your owners sets the terms for buying out a separating partner or allowing the partner to sell to a third party.
  • Franchisement — If you want to grow your business by offering franchises, or you want to purchase a franchise to become your own boss, our attorneys can advise you on the franchise process. We protect your rights so you can derive the greatest benefit from your investment.

Reliable advice from Hunter Rhodes can make the business formation process work for you, so your company can begin on a firm foundation.

Sound contracts are the most important aspects of any business. Contracts are how you communicate your expectations, maintain cash flow and enforce your rights. Our attorneys can review your current contract to find weaknesses and areas of exposure and then suggest effective remedies. We also negotiate and draft contracts to make sure you are conducting business on the best terms possible. Finally, if you have a contract dispute, we draw on decades of experience in business litigation to rectify the situation.
