Business Entity Formation

PJI Law has extensive experience in business formations for Northern Virginia residents. We will guide you through the process, from selecting a business structure to filing the paperwork. Contact us today to take the first step in forming your business.

PJI Law helps clients form various business structures. We can also help you decide which structure is best for your new endeavor, whether that be Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, Limited Liability Company (LLC), C-corporation, or an S-corporation.

Steps for Forming a Business in Northern Virginia

Regardless of the size or type of business venture, you must follow some basic steps when forming your company. First, you have to choose a legal structure. Then you will select a name and make sure it is available. Choosing a location for the business is next on the list. Your Northern Virginia business formation attorney will ensure you follow regulations when choosing a site. Finally, you will obtain the permits and licenses and file the paperwork. Making a single mistake can slow down the process, so it’s wise to work with a business formation attorney from PJI Law.

Contract Creation

Hiring a Northern Virginia business contract attorney should be your company’s first step when entering into new relationships. The business contract attorneys at PJI Law have years of experience drafting legally binding contracts. We can also review contracts before you sign them. With our help, you can protect your company today and in the future.

PJI Law creates and reviews various types of business contracts. Common types of contracts include:

  • Partnership Agreements
  • ​Promissory Notes
  • ​Sales Agreements
  • ​Indemnity Agreements
  • ​Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Property Lease Agreements
  • ​Equipment Lease Agreements
  • ​Employment Contracts
  • ​Non-Compete Agreements
  • ​Independent Contractor Agreements

Drafting and Editing Business Contracts with PJI

PJI Law drafts contracts and edits documents created by others. If possible, you want to be the drafting party when creating a contract. This will give you more control over the contract’s language, meaning you can include provisions that protect your company’s rights and interests. At the same time, the provisions should also be tailored to keep the other party interested in signing. That is necessary for long-term business relationships.

If another party has drafted the contract, you can take it to PJI Law for review. These documents often need to be edited to represent our client’s interests. We will negotiate with the other party to make changes before the contract is signed. Once we are certain your rights are protected, you can finalize the agreement by signing it.

"Blue-Pencil Rule" In Northern Virginia

Some states follow the “blue pencil rule.” This gives judges the power to modify sections of contracts that are unreasonable, vague, or unenforceable. After making the changes, the contracts are legally binding. However, Virginia judges do not follow this rule. They are not parties to the agreement, so they don’t believe they have the legal right to modify it.

Because businesses cannot rely on the blue pencil rule to fix mistakes, many choose to include severability clauses in contracts. You can discuss a severability clause and other options when you speak to one of our Northern Virginia contract lawyers.

Business Transactions

Our Northern Virginia business transaction lawyers understand what’s at stake with each transaction and will perform due diligence to ensure you’re properly represented and protected. Whether you are just in the planning stages of your business or already have a company, we can provide the legal guidance you need for success. Contact us today to learn more about our business transaction services.

PJI Law represents clients in various business transactions. Common Northern Virginia business transactions include:

  • Purchase or Sale of Business
  • ​Stock Purchase Agreements

Mergers and Acquisitions

Our Northern Virginia business transaction lawyers help companies of all sizes complete mergers and acquisitions. We can assist you through the entire process, from obtaining financing to drafting the contract and finalizing the transaction. We begin each transaction by identifying your goals and needs. Then, we create a plan to help you achieve your goals, so you can grow your business. Mergers and acquisitions are extremely complicated, so having a legal team at your side is necessary. We will conduct all due diligence to ensure your interests are represented, and we will also offer legal advice if the deal doesn’t seem to be in your best interests.

Commercial Contract Litigation

Our Northern Virginia business transaction attorneys can also represent you during disputes and litigation. Whether you are dealing with a financial dispute or believe the other party acted fraudulently, we can help. We regularly discuss each case among our team of litigation attorneys at no additional charge to you, meaning you will have multiple legal minds on your case. Our seasoned trial attorneys often begin by attempting to negotiate with the other party, if the client agrees. However, if the other side isn’t willing to settle the dispute, we can escalate it to trial. Then, we will use our experience to present evidence to the court in the way that best supports your claim.
