Getting your start-up business off on the right foot

There is little else as empowering and nerve-wracking as starting your own company and navigating the growth pains that accompany such an endeavor. At Dunlap & Seeger, we have helped many Minnesota residents like yourself to work their way through setting up their own business.

Avoiding conflict during estate and asset division

Despite the precautions and careful planning that many people undergo when creating their will, familial conflict is still a possibility. The risk of family disputes is heightened when vague statements are used instead of detailed guidelines. With active measures put into place ahead of time, individuals planning their wills in Minnesota can create an agreement that is fair, concise and understandable.

Expecting parents and new parents should consider estate planning

Preparing for the birth of a new child includes many exciting opportunities for planning. Choosing a name, prepping the nursery and deciding how to tell the grandparents the good news are common sources of both excitement and concern for many people. At the same time, there are important decisions to make to help protect the child from infancy to adulthood.

How can I prevent disputes over my estate?

When it comes to estate planning in Minnesota, you have to anticipate there may be disputes between family members over your assets when you pass away. If you have any inkling that your family has issues with each other or you have large assets at stake, you should always think ahead to how you can prevent issues from arising, so your estate can be settled quickly and with minimal hassle.

Tips for starting a family business

Family operated businesses serve as the backbone of Minnesota’s overall economy. The vast majority of businesses in the United States are family-run operations. Roughly 80 to 90 percent of all business operations across the country are family businesses, according to the Family Business Alliance. About one-third of the S & P 500 are family-run ventures.

Stages of business growth

If you are starting a business in Minnesota, then it is a good idea to understand the stages of business growth. At Dunlap & Seegar, PA, we work to help you through any stage of the process because each stage brings with it distinct challenges that you must overcome to get to the next stage.

Tips for choosing an executor

When people begin to think about what they may want to do in their estate plan they often focus on how to divide their assets. Common concerns may involve how to protect assets in creating a trust. But along the way, it is easy to overlook thinking about how the estate should be managed. Choosing an executor or trustee is an important function that should not be taken lightly.

Reasons everyone needs a will

It is a common misconception among Minnesota residents that only older people need wills. This simply is not true. A person can help their family to avoid many hassles by drawing up a will no matter what his or her current age. The New York Times notes that the state will step in and disperse a person’s assets after he or she dies if there is no will. This leaves the person with no say in what happens to anything he or she owns or any children he or she has. 

Common legal issues that small business owners face

Running a successful business requires more than a vision; it requires hard work and daily attention to detail. Solid business owners are usually adept at managing the many small fires that can arise from disgruntled clients or internal employee relations. However, some problems can have significant legal implications that call for the guidance of a business law attorney.
