Business Legal Questions and Answers

C Corp

North Carolina

Asked on Jul 11, 2023

Can a C corp be digital?

I am an entrepreneur looking to start a new business. I am considering setting up a C corp and wanted to know if it is possible to do this digitally. I understand that C corps typically require a physical presence, such as an office, but I am interested in knowing if there are any innovative digital solutions that could make this process easier.

Nicholas M.

Answered Aug 11, 2023

There are many virtual offices and virtual mailboxes that you can use to register a corporation. Delaware does not even require those and a registered agent with an address is all that is required.

C Corp

North Carolina

Asked on Jul 26, 2023

C corp and change of control?

I am a business owner looking to form a C Corporation. I am in the process of creating the Articles of Incorporation and am interested in understanding the implications of a change of control on the C Corporation. I am looking to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to protect my business and its assets in the event of a change of control.

Nicholas M.

Answered Aug 11, 2023

These are great questions, and are going to be very specific to your corporation and how you want to run things. Generally, you can structure things however you want, but working with an Attorney on your bylaws will ensure an objective outsider is thinking through how conflicts can be resolved before they impact day-to-day business operations.

S Corp

North Carolina

Asked on Aug 9, 2023

S corp and liquidation preferences?

I am a business owner who recently incorporated as an S corporation. I am interested in learning more about liquidation preferences as I am considering bringing on additional investors to help fund the business. I want to understand the implications of liquidation preferences on my ownership and the rights of the new investors.

Nicholas M.

Answered Aug 11, 2023

An S-Corp has some limitations here (such as no more than 100 share holders and only one class of stock). Depending on the control that you seek to retain in your business, you may want to transition to a full C-Corp, restructure preferred (voting) shares from equity shares, and manage your business governance (Board of Directors, Officers, Resolutions, etc.) in a way big investors will find compelling.

LLC

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 26, 2023

How to amend details after LLC formation?

I recently formed a LLC for my business and I am now looking to make some changes to the details of the LLC. I am unsure of the process of making these amendments and am seeking advice on how to go about making these changes legally.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 30, 2023

Making changes to certain aspects of a North Carolina LLC is usually not very difficult, particularly if the LLC is recently formed. For example, if the desired changes are related to the LLC's Articles of Incorporation, filing amended Articles will likely be sufficient. Similarly, if the desired changes are related to the LLC's Operating Agreement, signing an amended Agreement will likely be the key. The processes for making other types of changes will vary based on the specific facts. When making changes to any aspect of a North Carolina LLC, it is important to comply with the LLC's operating agreement, the LLC statute, and other applicable laws. For legal advice on making changes to your North Carolina LLC, you should consider consulting with a knowledgeable business or corporate attorney. Good luck!

Demand Letter

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 15, 2023

Who drafts a demand letter?

I recently received a demand letter from an individual that I had a disagreement with. I am uncertain as to why the letter was sent and what actions I need to take in response. I am looking to understand who drafts a demand letter and what their purpose is in order to determine how to proceed.

N'kia N.

Answered Sep 24, 2023

Virtually anyone can draft their own demand letter or have an attorney draft one on their behalf, so long as it is not for an unlawful purpose (such as harassment or extortion). The purpose of a demand letter is to "demand" that someone do or not do something. For example, one demand letter might request that the recipient make a payment. For another example, a demand letter might request that the recipient cease and desist defaming the sender. A demand letter should clearly state what the recipient is being asked to do or not do. Often, one that is drafted by an attorney will also state why. A recipient of a demand letter who is unsure about how to proceed should consult with a knowledgeable attorney in the appropriate jurisdiction. The attorney should be able to advise on options for next steps, as well as pros and cons for each. The attorney might also be willing to draft a response or otherwise assist the recipient with resolving the underlying issue.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

View Trustpilot Review

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
