The Law Office of Nir Basse is committed to understanding each client’s business and unique situation. My goal is to aid in my client’s business success by balancing legal and business considerations along the way. I negotiate and draft all types of contracts, including independent contractor agreements, employment agreements, supply contracts, agreements with subcontractors, agreements with freelancers and customer agreements. Negotiating and drafting office and retail leases and subleases, preparing applications for state registration and federal registration of trademarks and service marks, are other services that can be provided to you.
The Law Office of Nir Basse also takes all the guess work out of licensing your Chicago small business. All local, state and federal registration and licensing requirements are handled by the office, so you don’t have to. I will incorporate your business, set up your corporate book, register you for your FEIN and Illinois Business License and handle any other start-up needs you have.
My office can also assist and represent individuals and/or businesses in selling or purchasing businesses. We handle all aspects of the deal including negotiations and the drafting of all necessary documents including contracts, purchase agreements, closing documents, promissory notes and security agreements. Furthermore, I will advise and assist in any license, zoning and tax requirements associated with your transaction.
Clients seek my advice on all employee matters. I advise clients on whether to designate workers as employees or independent contractors, and on why choosing the right designation is important. I help clients to fulfill their obligations related to health insurance laws, wage and hour laws, and laws on reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities. Other documents as offers of employment along with non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements, which meet the specific needs of each business, can be created.
A pro-active approach to avoiding future problems for your business will be taken. I am happy to draft employee handbooks (thus protecting you from frivolous litigation from disgruntled employees), reply to and appear on your business’ behalf in any employment related matter including Unemployment Benefit Appeals, Discrimination claims, Harassment claims and/or Wrongful Termination claims.
