The Law Office of Kristina M. Reed is committed to small businesses and entrepreneurs, and a champion for the growth and revitalization of the Downtown Sacramento area. In keeping with these goals, the firm, along with other local businesses and organizations, recently sponsored the 2013 Calling All Dreamers Competition, an annual competition with the goal of fostering Sacramento’s entrepreneurial spirit and cultivate the next dreamers in Downtown Sacramento. Beginning in April, applicants submitted their businesses concepts for the competition. A panel of business experts selected eleven semi-finalists based on the following criteria: creativity, sustainability, and entrepreneurial passion. The panel then selected five finalists out of the eleven semi-finalists. The panel ultimately selected Andy’s Candy Apothecary as the winner. The candy store will carry packaged candies from around the world and well as locally-made handmade candies. Andy Paul, the founder of Andy’s Candy Apothecary, received a cash prize of $10,000 as well as free rent and business support services, including 10 hours of business and real estate related transactional legal services provided by the Law Office of Kristina M. Reed.
While starting and running a new business requires passion, it also requires confidence and a strong foundation. The Law Office of Kristina Reed provided Andy’s Candy Apothecary with a strong foundation, and we can help your small business as well. Many small businesses pay little attention to the legal side of their business, which can prove detrimental. An attorney experienced in assisting small businesses can help your business make key foundational decisions about the structure and organization of the business as well as developing strategies and making deals that will make your business successful. We can also help draft employment agreements and ensure that your business is in compliance with all relevant ordinances, such as zoning ordinances. Hiring an experienced lawyer up front to help your small business get off the ground can save you from headaches down the road. It can help protect you against expensive lawsuits brought by employees, customers, and suppliers.
