Frequently Asked Questions

What documents should I have for a complete estate plan?

The core estate planning documents that make up the majority of estate plans include a last will and testament, durable power of attorney, healthcare power of attorney, and living trust. Additional documents may be needed depending on your specific situation. The best way to determine what should be included in your estate plan is by consulting a qualified estate attorney.

How often should I update my estate plan?

You should review your estate plan every 3-5 years and whenever you experience a major life event like marriage, divorce, birth of a child, death of a beneficiary, change in assets, move to another state, etc. Keeping your plan up-to-date ensures it remains effective. Passing away with an ineffective or inaccurate plan could cause rifts between family members and a long, drawn-out court battle.

What does probate mean and should I avoid it?

Probate is the legal process for administering a deceased person’s estate. It can be lengthy and costly for the estate, so it’s typically in your best interest to avoid it. Our estate planning lawyers can help you avoid probate using asset-protection strategies, including establishing a living trust and transferring assets into it.

How can your lawyers help with business formation?

Our business lawyers can guide you through entity selection, drafting formation documents, obtaining licenses/permits, checking availability of the business name, filing with the state, and handling any other legal aspects of starting your company. We help ensure the right structure for your goals.

When should I trademark my business name?

It depends, but for most businesses, the right time to trademark your business is after you’ve filed the paperwork to form your LLC or corporation. Trademarking provides exclusive rights to the name and prevents competitors from causing confusion by using it. The trademark process can take over a year, so apply early. Contact our trademark lawyers for guidance on the process.

What common mistakes should I avoid when drafting a business contract?

The most common mistakes we see when drafting a business contract are:

  • Ambiguity in the terms
  • Missing formalities like signatures and dates
  • Typos or grammar errors
  • Missing choice of law and venue clauses
  • Not updating terms from a template, and
  • Insufficient liability coverage

DIY business contracts or online printable contracts can spell disaster for your company. We always advise having an attorney carefully draft and review any contracts.
