Once a business is formed, the entity may need a shareholder or operating agreement to define the rights and obligations of the different principals, employment or consulting agreements for any employees or contract workers and its own business contracts to sell or develop its business and vendor contracts for needed third party services. Mr. Effrain has years of experience helping clients prepare all of these business startup and development type agreements.
