Business Law Attorney

At the De Bruin Law Firm we provide legal counsel regarding business matters to a variety of industries. Our extensive first hand business experience helps set us apart from other firms in that both of our business law attorneys have built successful businesses in addition to their legal practices.

Whether your a tech startup or an international manufacturer looking to establish yourself in the U.S. market, we can help. Our business law services are designed to help our clients structure their businesses for growth with an eye always on the future. To ensure your business has the necessary fountain to scale and grow we start first with a review of your entity’s structure and your current business goals.


The experience of the De Bruin Law Firm’s business law attorney allows clients to receive all-inclusive legal counsel quickly and efficiently. Large corporations often employ their own in-house counsel to advise and direct management on the implementation of corporate strategy; manage the daily legal function of the corporation, and when needed, oversee the work of outside counsel. Most small businesses don’t have a need to have attorneys on staff acting as in-house counsel, nor can they afford to. For small businesses, The De Bruin Law Firm often acts as general counsel, providing the same legal direction to business owners and their management, as well as providing comprehensive strategies dedicated to the growth of the business.

The benefits of having the De Bruin Law Firm act as a business’s general counsel is efficiency and effectiveness. As the global economy continues to expand, so do government regulations. It’s important to have a firm capable of handling both the legal tasks as well as providing a proactive legal approach to the expansion of a business.


Deciding how to structure and incorporate a business is often the first and one of the most important decisions made when starting or re-organizing a business. Typically, shielding individuals from personal liability is the primary purpose for most entity formations. However, other factors, like how a business and its owners/shareholders are taxed, how the business can expand, and recently, employee health insurance issues, also play a part in determining how a business is formed. Before a business begins operating, it’s important to incorporate with the South Carolina Secretary of State. An experienced business law attorney can help navigate the entity formation process and ensure the business’s incorporation aligns with the future goals of the business. The De Bruin Law Firm’s business attorneys handle business formations and reorganizations in South Carolina. Located in Greenville, South Carolina, our business law attorneys will help you determine which business entity structure is appropriate for your goals. The types of South Carolina business entities we help structure and incorporate include:

  • Partnerships
  • Corporations
  • Statutory Close Corporations (South Carolina)
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC’s)
  • Contract Review & Negotiation

Unfortunately, many small business owners, entrepreneurs, and even corporations don’t have an attorney review their business contracts until after an issue occurs. It’s even more unfortunate that many of these issues that face businesses can be avoided with a diligent review and subsequent negotiation of business contracts before entering into them. Having an attorney review, advise, and negotiate the terms of a contract prior to its execution is pivotal to preventing a business from entering into an unfair contract while also preserving business relationships necessary for success. When performing a comprehensive review of business contracts, the focus of our business law attorneys is always to provide effective solutions while efficiently meeting
