Presenting You With All the Options

Many clients interested in business startup come to us for advice about what type of business entity they should choose. We believe the best service we can offer to our entrepreneur clients is not to tell them what we would choose but to help them make an informed decision for themselves.

Our attorneys will listen to the type of business you are interested in starting and work through issues with you, such as who will be involved, what is your management style, how much personal risk you are comfortable taking, and succession planning. We will then explain the purpose, including pros and cons, of a variety of business entity types so you can choose the one that will best help your enterprise succeed:

  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Limited partnership (LP) or limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • C corporation or S corporation
  • Professional corporation (PC)
  • Charitable organization
  • Any other business structure that might be appropriate

Once you have chosen the business structure that best suits your needs, we will help you with every detail of the business formation process such as:

  • Drafting and filing incorporation documents
  • Negotiating shareholder agreements
  • Drafting partnership agreements and LLC operating agreements
  • Helping you secure financing and reviewing all loan documents
  • Setting up initial governance and policy documents
  • Advising you on what you need to do to maintain the benefits of your business structure

Beyond Business Formation Services to General Operations and Disputes
