Business Planning and Organization Formation

Starting a new business can be exciting, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. Our team of business law attorneys has extensive experience in corporate law to assist in all stages of planning your business startup and to provide a solid foundation to operate your business.

What are the types of legal entities for my business?

There are different types of legal entities for operating a business, and it can be difficult to choose the correct legal entity. The correct entity can help with minimizing taxes and reducing liability risks.  Let our team of business attorneys help you determine which entity is most appropriate. The different types of business entities include:

  •     Sole proprietorships
  •     Partnerships
  •     Limited Partnerships
  •     Corporations
  •     S-Corporations
  •     Limited Liability Companies (LLC)
  •     Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)
  •     Professional Associations (PA)
  •     Professional Limited Liability Companies (PLLC)

Steps for formation of the Business

Once a legal entity is decided upon, we will then assist in preparation of the required documents for the formation of the business. Depending on the type of entity chosen, this may include drafting and negotiation of operating agreements, shareholder agreements,  partnership agreements, articles of organization, articles and certificates. We will help you confirm that all documents are filed with the necessary organizations and records are maintained as required. We will also help you confirm that all necessary and appropriate licenses and permits are obtained.
