Since 1994, Ryan, Drewniak, & Upshaw, P.A. has helped numerous small businesses with a variety of legal needs.

Many people dream of moving from employed to self-employed, or from self-employed to a thriving enterprise, but the legal technicalities can be daunting and cause anxiety. Our goal is to assist you with all of the legal requirements and allow you to concentrate on the task ahead of you – making money, growing your business and ensuring that you are meeting the needs of your customers or clients.

In order to do this, we help create corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies. We work with you to draft the governing documents of these small businesses including bylaws, operating agreements, shareholder agreements and buy-sell agreements. By ensuring that documentation is in order from the beginning, you can focus on the operation of your business and not on worrying about whether all of the legalities of setting up a business have been properly handled.

After your business is up and operational, we can act as outside general counsel and resident agent as we do for many of our business clients. We review standard contracts, draft corporate minutes and resolutions, assist with collections of debts, and steer you in the right direction when your business needs require other types of legal expertise, such as environmental lawyers, patent lawyers, or worker’s compensation lawyers.

Our small firm atmosphere allows us to provide hands on personal service ensuring that all of your legal needs are met.
