More Than 25 Years Of Skilled Legal Representation For Businesses And Individuals

Planning And Maintaining A Successful Business In Ohio

Starting a business, maintaining that business, and planning for that business to succeed requires careful and detailed planning. My name is Ian Heyman, and I am an experienced business law attorney. I am the founder of the Law Office of Ian Heyman LLC, and my goal is to implement careful and detailed planning to ensure that your goals are reached.

With over 25 years of experience, I have been the architect of many different business platforms for individuals and businesses in the Columbus community and throughout Ohio. My experience includes representing businesses with yearly revenue streams that range from $300,000 to over $300 million, and I provide the same attention to detail for every client I represent.

Choosing A Business Platform

Choosing an appropriate business model to suit your goals requires careful consideration. My extensive experience advising other business entities is a valuable asset for any new business. I help clients with the following:

  • The selection of the appropriate entity and the formation of various corporate structures, including LLCs, corporations, partnerships, and nonprofits
  • Drafting operating agreements, bylaws, and applicable governance documents
  • Securing funding, banking relationships, and finance
  • Drafting a wide variety of contracts and agreements

As a business is created, tax structures and future tax minimization goals can drive decisions. Depending on the nature of the business, licensing and regulatory compliance also require careful consideration, all of which I assist my clients with regularly.

Maintaining Business Operations And Managing Employees

Once a business is up and running, a company’s day-to-day internal business operations often require legal counsel from an experienced business law attorney. Drafting and reviewing documents and agreements is a regular part of a company’s operations, and I regularly help clients with all of the following:

  • Operating agreements
  • Management agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Contractor agreements
  • Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements
  • Employment and severance agreements
  • Incentive compensation agreements
  • Executive compensation agreements
  • Consulting agreements

A company’s relationships with its employees and contractors can be the foundation of the company’s heart and soul. Approaching these agreements with care and thoughtful consideration can be instrumental to ensuring a company’s success.

Business-To-Business Transactions

Equally important for building success is a company’s interactions with other businesses. My business experience offers valuable insight and forethought when it comes to contemplating various business agreements, including:

  • Business-to-business contracts and agreements
  • Asset management
  • Licensing agreements
  • Financing and debt management
  • Tax strategy and audit representation
  • Entity layering
  • Option agreements
  • Mergers, acquisitions, transfers, and sales

As a corporate entity grows and evolves, its business needs often change. When the leadership of a company is ready to transition, I provide legal guidance and sound, time-tested advice to business leaders with respect to every aspect effected, including asset and wealth management, and succession planning for the business.
