Texas business law is in place to protect the individual and his or her business, although sometimes it doesn’t feel this way.

A. Lewis Ward has more than 30 years of experience in advising corporate owners, proprietors, and entrepreneurs on legal business structures, determining capital structure, issuing capital stock, raising capital, protecting owners, etc. We provide trusted advice on setting up corporate charters and bylaws, preparing partnership and operating agreements, preparing and filing government documents, preparing stockholder voting agreements, preparing employment agreements, and establishing legal compliance with federal, state, and local laws.

At A. Lewis Ward & Associates, we help entities with a small number of owners draft buy-sell agreements. We believe that situations such as the aftermath of the death of a partner or shareholder should be anticipated and the transition planned. How to fund the purchase of another’s interest in a business entity and how to evaluate that interest are decisions we help partners and shareholders to make.

Keeping a small business safe from the loss of a key employee is an important consideration. Competition by a former employees can be prevented through properly drafted employment agreements that contain enforceable non-compete provisions and protect confidential and proprietary documents and information.
