  • Aaron DeBruin was my husbands defense attorney recently regarding a high profile case in Walhalla, SC. Aaron fought really hard to prove my husbands innocence. If anyone knows anything about the small town of Walhalla, it’s a small town where it’s a battle to prove your innocence especially if you’re of color. Aaron took on a high profile and difficult case. He was very patient and kept me up to date with everything. Despite of the deniles of the bond hearings, Aaron continued to fight. My husbands case wound up going to trail after 10 months of incarceration in Walhalla county. Aaron has plenty of sleepless nights and early morning preparation during trial. I will never forget how hard Aaron fought in the courtroom! Aaron won his first case in Seneca SC! My husband was found not guilty on all charges once Aaron convinced jury of false allegations. I could go on and on but I’m here to tell you if you’re in the upstate of Greenville and need a defense attorney to fight for your innocence give this guy a call! You won’t regret it! I sure don’t! Not only was my husbands lawyer I feel like we both have gained a dear friend for life! Thank you Aaron!

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.

SMALL BUSINESS LEGAL COUNSEL

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.

STARTING 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
