September 14, 2016 (DURHAM, NC) The Forrest Firm, a North Carolina-based business law firm and certified B Corporation, announces its partnership with the North Carolina Veterans Business Association.

Celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2016, the Forrest Firm is a provider of corporate legal services to entrepreneurs, investors and executives. The firm works in multiple areas relevant to businesses at every stage of their life cycles. Core practice areas include business formation, angel and venture financings, intellectual property, commercial real estate, employment, mergers and acquisitions, estate planning, tax, contract negotiation and dispute resolution.

Also known as NC VetBiz, the North Carolina Veterans Business Association is a member–operated association of veteran professionals and business owners, formed to develop and strengthen the veterans’ business network in North Carolina. The association serves as a voice in North Carolina for businesses owned by veterans and service–disabled veterans. Strengthening veteran-owned businesses enables them to contribute to North Carolina’s economic vibrancy and empowers them to hire other veterans.

Through its partnership with the Forrest Firm, NC VetBiz will be able to help its members procure legal services that help businesses grow while mitigating risk. The Forrest Firm’s service offerings for NC VetBiz member companies will include discounted startup entity formation documents with one-week registration turnaround.  The firm will also offer entrepreneurs within the association membership a full slate of discounted services centered on contract drafting and negotiation—including customer contracts, vendor agreements and confidentiality agreements–website terms and conditions, website privacy policy, corporate governance, corporate structure, tax issues, trademarks, waivers, employment/human resource legal issues and more.

Forrest Firm attorneys will attend North Carolina Veterans Business Association events and give periodic presentations on legal topics of interest to the organization’s members. NC VetBiz and its members will also be featured on the Forrest Firm’s blog and social media channels.

According to NC VetBiz Chairman Kyle Winder, the partnership is a great opportunity to fuel economic impact in the state. “The Forrest Firm understands the technical aspects of growing a business with the right balance of development and risk management,” said Winder. “That outlook matches perfectly with what we bring to the table, leaders whose attention to detail and plan execution define their businesses.”

“NC VetBiz is an incredible organization, run by veterans, for veterans,” stated Forrest Firm attorney Timothy McNeill, who served in the Marine Corps and also sits on the board of directors of the North Carolina Veterans Business Association. “The Forrest Firm is honored to work with the men and women of the North Carolina Veterans Business Association, as they bring their talents and leadership abilities to businesses across our state. We will partner together to launch and sustain successful businesses across North Carolina.”
