law-education-series-2-68916-mLarge and small companies require or have the need for expert legal advice for their day to day business matters and unexpected legal matters. At Eckinger Law Offices, Ltd., we handle a broad range of business matters, whether a sole proprietorship, partnership, or an incorporated business, such as, a limited liability company or corporation. Our attorneys can advise you as what business entity best suits your needs for the formation of a new business or an existing business.

At Eckinger Law Offices, Ltd., we also handle other related business matters, such as:

  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Business succession planning
  • Cross-purchase agreements
  • Commercial law issues
  • Commercial and business litigation
  • Contracts
  • Debt collection
  • Employment issues
  • Governmental compliance
  • Non-compete and trade secret agreements

  • Shareholder disputes

Whether your business is large or small, a new business, or an existing business, you need the support of an experienced law firm for legal consultation.  We can be of assistance whether you are buying or selling a business.  Our attorneys regularly assist clients with due diligence prior to completion of mergers, acquisitions and purchases.  Should your business need guidance with day-to-day issues–such as FMLA compliance, contract preparation and review, employment agreements, or other employment matters–the attorneys at Eckinger Law Office’s can provide the support and advice needed.

Our attorneys can also be of assistance should disputes arise in your business dealings.  Although avoiding litigation is always the goal if such a situation occurs, our attorneys regularly file lawsuits on behalf of companies seeking to recover sums due as a result of a breach of contract or other dispute.  Our attorneys have also successfully represented businesses in a variety of lawsuits.  As one recent example, in 2016 Eckinger Law Office’s successfully obtained summary judgment, which decided the case in favor of our client without the necessity of a trial, where a terminated employee had alleged discrimination on several grounds and was seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

We have also provided legal advice and representation in the following employment & labor areas:

  • Day-to-Day labor and employment advice
  • Discrimination and harassment litigation
  • Employment contracts and severance agreements
  • OSHA compliance and proceedings
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) proceedings
  • Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) proceedings
  • Unemployment proceedings
  • Wrongful discharge and retaliation litigation
  • Non-compete and unfair competition litigation

Unlike many other law firms, once we establish an attorney-client relationship with the employer, we will provide prompt and immediate advice on any employment or labor issue and you will receive a detailed monthly statement for the charges incurred.  At Eckinger Law Offices we take pride in providing great value to our clients for the legal services rendered.

Many of our employer clients that do not have in-house HR staff due to the size of their company and the additional cost, have utilized our law firm to provide day-to-day as-needed human resources support.

We have represented business entities that are located in places such as North Canton, Canton, Massillon, Orville, Dalton, Wooster and Akron.  Our attorneys pride themselves in being readily available to address our client’s legal matters in a timely and cost effective manner.
