Applying for an Employer Identification Number (EIN)

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a unique 9 digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service to business entities operating in the United States for the purposes of identification. The information sought through the link below helps our business law department formulate a strategy in obtaining an EIN and/or US mailing address.

Begin the application process for an EIN by filling out this form.

Business formation is a necessary step when opening a business. This makes the business a distinct legal entity. There are 4 main types: Limited Liability Company (LLC), Partnership, Sole Proprietorship, and Corporation.

LLC Advantages:

  • earnings of an LLC are taxed only once
  • earnings of an LLC are treated like earnings from a partnership, sole proprietorship & most S corporations
  • an LLC owner’s liability is generally limited to the amount of $$$ which the person invested in the LLC
  • LLC members are offered the same limited liability protection as corporation’s shareholders
  • LLCs are generally free to establish any organizational structures agreed upon by members
  • profit interests may be separated from voting interests

With decades of experience drafting agreements on a myriad of subjects and fields, we’re confident we can prepare an agreement for your needs. Whether it’s a partnership, shareholder, operating agreement, or other type of business contract, contact us to find out how we can assist you.

A partnership agreement is a contract between two or more individuals who operate a business for profit. When drafting partnership agreements, we ensure the terms are tailored to your specific business needs. Certainly contact us if you’re in need of these types of agreements.

An operating agreement is arguably the most important document for owners of an LLC. In short, it outlines the process by which the LLC operates within its rules and guidelines on its daily basis of operation. The operating agreement is specific to the LLC and the specific needs of its members. Moreover, it is binding to its terms. Whether or not it is required in your state, every LLC should have an operating agreement.

Shareholder agreements are made between the owners of a corporation. This document serves as a safety net that details the steps taken if a shareholder leaves the company. It also outlines the percentage of ownership, restrictions on shares, and rights to purchase shares, among many other criteria.

Contract Drafting & Reviewing

Our experienced attorneys know the importance of vocalizing the wants & needs of both parties at this step.

Contract Drafting & Reviewing

Drafting a contract is at the forefront of almost every legal interaction. An offer must be made, accepted, and a consideration exchanged by both parties. Once fulfilled, the terms of the contract are to be included.

Contract Negotiation & Disputes

We pride ourselves in our ability to make sure that your concerns are met and negotiated into the final contract.

Contract Negotiation & Disputes

Negotiation of a contract is within the repertoire of all attorneys. But we have a unique perspective, as the majority of our clients are Amazon sellers. When a contract breach occurs, you may be eligible to collect damages. We’re here to help.

Webinar Wednesday: Build an Amazon business to sell for 7 figures.

Employment Law

Employment law is an umbrella that covers topics such as workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, severance agreements, among other related topics. Whether you have a claim based on race, age, ethnicity, physical/mental disability, sex, veteran status, citizenship, religion, or wage & hour concerns, our business law firm can help with your claim.

As your Amazon business grows, you’re going to hire staff, and staff means employment issues.

Many sellers don’t know this, but before pivoting into only helping people in companies that are selling products on Amazon, CJ Rosenbaum led a huge contingent of employment lawyers through the American Association for Justice. He was the chair of a group of over 6,000 lawyers who did nothing but work on employment law issues.

Employment issues can include: discrimination or anti-discrimination policies, wage and hour liabilities, non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-compete agreements.

Many times when you employ people, you don’t tend to act until there’s a problem.

It’s always best to plan in advance and make sure you’re in compliance with your state and federal employment regulations.

If you do have an issue, before you react, before you write/say anything to that employee who may have legal claims against you, make sure you consult with a business law attorney. This way, you don’t do anything or write anything that may make the situation worse or create liability upon yourself / your company where no liability may exist.

Contact us. We’re here for sellers: MON-FRI: 9am – 8pm, SAT & SUN: 10am – 6pm EST
