Protecting Your Business

The vast majority of companies in Southern Maine are small businesses, businesses that, despite having relatively few employees, face a broad range of legal issues. At Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice, P.A., we offer a full range of services and representation to help clients establish and grow their businesses.

If you are considering starting a new business, or restructuring an ongoing one, we advise you on the best corporate structure to use based on an assessment of tax issues and potential liability. Options include establishing your company as the following:

  • Corporation
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Partnership

  • Non-Profits

Our attorneys help business owners avoid pitfalls in growing and running their companies by regularly assisting them with matters including the following:

  • Contract drafting and negotiation
