Selecting A Business Entity Based On Your Goals And Needs
The first of many important decisions business owners make is selecting the entity within which they will operate their business. Options for business structures include:
- Limited liability companies
- Limited partnerships
- General partnerships
- Limited liability partnerships
- Sole proprietorships
Business entities are determined based on individual liability, tax-related issues, management and business succession. Working with you one-on-one helps us to understand your needs and goals. We advise you the strengths and weaknesses of all your options and select the corporate form best for you.
Once we have selected your entity, we register your company with the state. We attend to every detail in drafting and reviewing operating agreements, bylaws, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, corporate charters, articles of incorporation and other documents necessary to protect your business interests.
