Business Law

Business Formation 

Starting a new business begins with understanding your business objectives and determining the best entity type for your new venture. Should you form a Corporation (Inc.), a Limited Liability Company (LLC), a Partnership (LP, LLP), or a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization? We assist you in selecting the type that maximizes your business' financial and operational success. We look at factors like, company location, jurisdictional registration, tax laws and corporate regulations affecting your business. And also of great importance, which form offers you the best liability protection? As as an additional service for those looking to secure investors for their business, we offer the additional service of Business Plan drafting, and creating a business profile for your business with the two major business credit and funding agencies.

Your General Counsel

As a small business owner, you are obviously very knowledgable about your particular business, and the industry. However, if you don't have the budget to hire a full-time attorney at $200k plus per year, your business is almost certainly exposed to a number of various legal attacks. Eighty-nine percent (89%) of all businesses during the lifetime of their business operations will be faced with some form of legal issue. And without proper legal advise or representation, that legal matter can cripple, or completely destroy your business. But a more frightening prospect is that your personal assets can also be subject to loss or seizure as well.
