Attorneys Who Help You
Start Your Small Business

Many people are overwhelmed by starting a new business.  They know their business area, but do not
know how to legally create the business, what type of business entity to
select, or what types of contracts they need.
At Flesner Wentzel, we are experienced helping both new and established
businesses with all their legal needs.

 

St. Charles Business Lawyers

While we at Flesner Wentzel help businesses of all sizes, we are
particularly interested in helpings small business owners.  As small business owners ourselves, we
understand the struggles and benefits that running a small business bring.  We also understand that often, there are not
enough hours in the day for a small business owner to accomplish everything
they need to.  We also understand that
small business owners often need to prioritize their expenses and how important
it is to stay within budget.  Our goal is
to free up business owner’s time so they can spend it working with their clients
and to always work cost effectively.

Business law is one of the areas of law where hiring a business
lawyer to help you make the right decisions and get the right documents and
procedures in place is relatively inexpensive and it almost certainly will save
you from an expensive lawsuit or much more complex legal issue down the
road.  Some businesses ask us for
comprehensive help with all of their legal issues.  Others come for us to get help with one issue
at a time or just to review something they think they did correctly themselves.
We are happy to help businesses, no matter what amount of help they need!
