5 Ways We Help Entrepreneurs Build Successful Businesses

| ,

Our team is full of passionate people who want to see your business grow. McCormick Law & Consulting is more than just a law firm for your business, we want to partner with you to help your business flourish.  Our team is dedicated to providing turnkey solutions with an efficient streamline process.  We work with both for-profit and non-profit businesses in an array of matters.  We help you become successful by implementing the following 5 Steps:

  1. We Help Build the Right Foundation

As a new business owner, you want to sell your product or provide your services and get things started – rightfully so! You should be excited. But during that excitement, you must lay the proper foundation for your business to flourish. Whether you are a for profit or non-profit, you need the right board of directors, partner, structure, tax exemptions, and more. It all matters in a crucial way.

2. We Help Build the Correct Contractual Relationships

Whether you work with employees, independent contractors, or even when you serve your customers, you are creating contracts whether you realize it or not. These contracts could be explicit, implied, or provided by statute. Our team will ensure that your independent contractor agreements, employment agreements, customer and service agreements, terms and conditions, privacy policies, and more. If you have been in business for any time, you know that the reality isn’t “if” something bad happens, but “when” it will happen. When an issue comes up for your business, you will likely be running to your contracts to help protect you. Take control of your contracts early, tailor them to your needs, and allow them to serve you and your business well.

3. We Ask Questions

Every good business owner needs a sounding board for both small-scale and major decisions. We are not just lawyers, but we are business consultants that want to see you succeed in a major way. Who are you customers? Are they single or married? Young or old? What is your product? What is your target market? We want to ask questions to help determine whether your business is on the best path for success. We want to hear about your business and be great listeners.

4. We Run the Fire Drill

What happens when something goes wrong? Who is there to put out the fires? We are! Our team is there to identify the problems, assess the scenario, identify solutions, and implement a plan to protect your business. Something will inevitably go wrong when you run a business – the world is full of unpredictability, and you need a partner to navigate you through those problems for your business. Our team is passionate about entering into the thick of problems with our clients and finding solutions to protect the business, so that YOU can move forward with your success.

5. We Celebrate You

Celebration of goals and victories is what running your own business is all about. We are so excited to encourage you along the way, and to congratulate your success when you arrive at your goals. If you are looking for more than just a lawyer for your business, you can find an attorney, partner, and consultant in our team.

We look forward to hearing from you soon and walking through these steps with you!

  • Being a first time business owner, you want to make sure you're making all the right decisions. Choosing McCormick Law & Consulting, along with Emma and Taylor, made the process so easy! Emma understood right away what my primary concerns were, and was able to execute everything in a very timely manner! She was extremely easy to talk to and she took the time to explain everything to me, settling my nerves with taking this next big step. Taylor made the process of making it all official completely stress free.

  • McCormick Law & Consulting was integral in the creation of our non-profit. We promised our 12 y/o son that we would keep fighting cancer for kids like him but we couldn’t have kept that promise without John McCormick and his team. We were hooked at our first meeting when John simply asked “ Tell me about you son.” McCormick Law and Consulting took care of all the legal work while allowing us to focus on our mission. John and his team continue to be a great resource and supporter of D-Feet Cancer The Dalton Fox Foundation. We couldn’t have asked for better legal representation. Thank you McCormick Law & Consulting.

  • I definitely could have created my new business, Davis Wealth Management LLC, but boy that would have been a mistake. Because business formation is not an area in which I practice, I had no idea where my blind spots were, and let me tell you there were plenty. The knowledge I received from the firm is invaluable.

    John McCormick and his firm are very reasonably priced and quickly and efficiently assisted me in creating my new business. It was completely turn key; they did everything for me.  I can't recommend their services enough. Also, huge shoutout to Taylor who kept me informed every step of the way!

    James D.
  • I highly recommendMcCormick Law & Consulting! My Father and I live in two separate states and the properties he needed legal services for are in Virginia. I reach out to Taylor on two separate occasions and she was very responsive and professional. The first time we used their services it went so smoothly that by the time I needed their services again I knew I could just send over the necessary documents, pay my invoice and rest assured it would all get taken care of. They eliminated the stress that comes with handling some else's affairs and I so appreciate that.

  • From the the very 1st conversation with their office it was clear they would be responsive to all my questions and any support with my business. They are relatable and make their customers feel comfortable with any questions and or concerns that might arise while using their services. I am happy to have found them to support me with my small business needs!

We really had no idea of who to trust and who we could count on for quick and professional service in the Hampton Roads area for getting our new business up and running smoothly and the Team at McCormick Law & Consulting really knocked it out of the park with us!

  • I had the good fortune of working with McCormick Law on a business sales contract. I sent them the initial draft provided by the buyer along with a few notes about my specific concerns. They carefully went through the document and provided meaningful additions and corrections that better protected my interests. Thanks to Bobby and John for their personalized attention.
    Arthur B.

  • We used McCormick Law to start up another LLC and it was a great experience. I have used other lawyers and attorneys in the past and I experienced delayed responses and it was what I have come to expect.From the first interactions with Robert and his team, I was surprised to how responsive they were. I even mentioned to my new business partner that this was not normal and I was very happy.Needless to say I will be using McCormick Law for all of my business needs in the future.
