Business Formation & Organization
Trinity Law Group attorneys have decades of experience assisting successful entrepreneurs through every stage of an emerging company's lifecycle beginning from inception.
Starting a new company is more than filing forms with the state government. One of the biggest mistakes that start-up businesses make is to rush through a quick filing with online forms and putting off any other decision-making until after the company gets up and running. Often these companies end up in disputes between founders with obstacles to investment and devaluation that could easily have been prevented with competent legal and strategic counsel.
