For various reasons, including lack of time and/or money, many business owners do not regularly maintain their corporate books and records, corporate contracts and other legal documents, or follow the requisite legal formalities in operating their business, including, but not limited to, complying with securities law.

An Orange County Lawyer Helping to Protect Your Business From Corporate Liability
Corporate compliance is important for companies trading, or preparing to trade, on the open market. Keeping a complete and accurate record of corporate documents is an important part not only of regulatory compliance but also for the due diligence involved in any purchase or sale of a business. Examples of documents important to compliance include:
- The company's corporate minutes
- Stock transfer ledgers
- Securities transactions
- Financial statements
- Intellectual property protections and rights
- Litigation history
Regulators and due diligence attorneys may be seeking, among other things, to uncover potential liabilities and risks associated with the company. Investors and acquirers are often likely to provide less scrutiny in their evaluation of a company if the company's corporate books and records, contracts, and other matters are complete, accurate and organized.
