BUSINESS LAW: FORMATION, ORGANIZATION, ACQUISITION, REGULATION, REPRESENTATION
IBLF was founded by a group of attorneys who felt that businesses without their own legal departments needed more effective legal service, which could be provided by an attorney who was business-experienced. IBLF’s attorneys have run their own businesses in other areas, and as a consequence, have dealt with the problems that face the business owner in dealing with bureaucracy, regulatory agencies, employment problems, import and export controls, contracts, and transactions.
IBLF is a registered agent for corporations in the District of Columbia and our legal services include counseling and drafting related to the formation of corporation, partnerships, limited liability companies, not-for-profit associations, as well the application for business licenses, locally in the Washington metro area, or related to the federal government, whether it be the special licenses required for aviation operations or import-export controls attached to certain countries like Iran and Iraq.
