Business Law

Laying the foundation and framework for successful Ohio businesses

Starting a new business or expanding your current business can be intimidating. Hiring lawyers can be an additional stress that some owners just decide to skip, leading to bigger headaches down the road.  At Wuliger & Wuliger, our aim is to lessen your stress by tackling the legal issues so you can focus on more important things – like growing your business.

We assist individuals and partners starting businesses by answering questions, identifying legal concerns, helping to determine priorities, and offering options for moving forward. We will not only draft the necessary start-up documents and agreements; we will help to create a plan for the life of the business. We provide “guard rails” for running partnerships and businesses – legal guidelines that allow for creative and agile growth and maturation of the business within ethical boundaries.

Success comes with its own unique challenges

Unfortunately, growth and success often bring disgruntled employees, larger expenditures, difficult negotiations, and sophisticated contracts and transactions. What used to be done with a handshake requires due diligence and legal expertise.  Larger transactions come with higher levels of risk. When you have more, you have more to lose.

Wuliger & Wuliger provides a legal framework to help launch your business, foster your growth and protect you through maturation and succession planning. We pride ourselves on making the complicated uncomplicated – making it easy for you to understand the processes. We look at your needs and potential problems holistically and won’t baffle you with legalese. Whenever possible, we’ll explain things in a sentence rather than a paragraph.
