Sacramento Commercial Leasing Lawyers

The Maloof Law Group has negotiated many leases, some a few pages long, some a hundred. The needs of the client, the sophistication of the landlord, the bargaining power of the tenant or possible tenant, and the risk aversion of the parties all come into play when negotiating a lease. At the Maloof Law Group, the terms of a lease could be too onerous to move forward, but that is your business decision to make, not ours.
The commercial lease brings with it hundreds of variables, but Maloof Group has likely seen them all. Certain provisions are more problematic than others, and all provisions can be drafted in a way that either benefits the tenant or the landlord.
If your business is intending to lease property and needs an advocate, contact Maloof Law Group, APC for a valuable consultation.

Sacramento Business Formation Lawyers

Central to forming your own business is choosing the entity through which you will operate it. The wrong entity can and will costs you in taxes. The wrong entity could be unduly cumbersome to manage for your type of business. The wrong entity could, in other words, put you at a disadvantage relative to your competitors.
There are many entities to choose from, including the corporation (both S-Corporation and C-Corporation, as well as the Professional Corporation), the Limited Liability Company (LLC), the Limited Partnership, the General Partnership, and the Limited Liability Partnership.
Each of these entities has its use, and each is entirely wrong for certain business models. Have Maloof Law Group help you sort what your needs are and help you form the entity that facilitates your business objectives. Please contact us to discuss.

Sacramento Franchising Lawyers

The Franchise Disclosure Document (previously a "UFOC," or Uniform Franchise Operating Circular) is a complicated document that crucially explains a franchisee's rights and obligations relative to a franchisor. Depending upon what your position is, the understanding of this document (or its proper drafting) is essential to your success. In addition, the franchise model is under attack by some and heralded by others, and the facts support each side, depending upon the industry and the geographic location. As a prospective franchisor or franchisee, you need to sift through the different opinions and chart a course of action. We can help. Contact us!

Sacramento Land Use and Entitlements Lawyers

Maloof Law Group is such a law firm. If you want to develop or redevelop your land, contact us to explore the possibilities and allow us to manage your project and advocate for you.

We are therefore skilled in employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, purchase and sale agreements, memoranda of understanding, letters of intent, and other boundary-setting documents that help define the scope of someone's involvement in your business as broadly or as narrowly as you intend.
