Agreements & Sealing Deals

Incorporating your business entity is just the very beginning – we at GP Schoemakers, PLLC will help your business grow!

You probably haven’t thought of your business like this, but really it’s just a series of agreements. Agreements with investors or lenders, clients and vendors, employees and independent contractors, partners and customers; the success of your business depends on your ability to make agreements and seal the deal.

Business Succession Planning

After you are gone (or in the event of your incapacity), your loved ones (family, partner, clients, vendors, and others) will miss you deeply, and your business needs to be able to go on to support them.

You will either leave them with a legacy that is meaningful, easy to manage (or cash out), and keep supporting them or you will leave them with a big mess to deal with.

Entity Formation & Maintenance

Forming your business entity at GP Schoemakers, PLLC is not one size fits all and is never handled in a vacuum.  If you wanted once size fits all, you could use a document drafting service or online legal document website. Before we form your entity, we get to know you, what’s important to you, what...

Hiring And Firing

Hiring and firing team members is the single most expensive part of your business, bar none. And most entrepreneurs simply have no idea how to go about it, not just from a legal perspective, but from a how to run your business perspective.

We can help you hire right, train smart and fire when necessary so that you keep as much time and money in your business as possible.

Insurance Review

Insurance Says I Love You --- Really! Yep, you read that right – insurance really does say I love you. You have insurance because you love your family, your partners, your clients, and ultimately yourself. Let me explain.

When you have the right type and amount of insurance, you can relax knowing that whatever comes up, is handled.

Intellectual Property Into Profits

Like most business owners, we imagine you are frequently coming up with new ideas for product lines, businesses, programs and services. But, how do you know what to move forward with, what goes in the someday maybe pile and what should be acted upon immediately?

Having a trusted, objective advisor to run those questions by is a great idea. But who can you trust to give you unbiased, smart, thoughtful guidance? Us.

Money Matters

When it comes to money, most business owners are dealing with it one of two ways – you either micro- manage your books and use your financial reports as a crystal ball that allows you to predict the future OR you manage your financials by going to the ATM and checking your balance.

Regular Updating

We don’t really like the word compliance because it seems to suggest that we are going to restrict you in some way — but, it’s really just the opposite…

Through our regular updating programs, we take care of all the little details, so you can stay creative and expansive.

At most business planning law firms the relationship ends when you sign your incorporation documents. At GP Schoemakers, PLLC we see the signing your incorporation documents as the beginning of our relationship with your business.

Tax Strategies

When your tax situation is structured right, you could be paying less than 10% of your income in taxes. Yes, less than 10%. Or, you could pay as much as 50% of your income in taxes. Strategic planning makes the difference.
