Business Formation and Governance
Deciding which type of business entity you are going to use for your new business is a big step because the type of entity will impact the way you are taxed and the extent of your personal liability. We will guide you through your options and assist you to complete and file the necessary paperwork to form your business. We draft operating agreements and corporate bylaws, prepare annual meeting minutes, file annual reports and help you with the other steps necessary to maintain your business records.
You've worked hard to create a business that can be passed down to the next generation. Set the stage for success with a viable succession plan. Successful succession planning deals not only with the business and legal aspects, but takes into consideration interpersonal issues. We will provide you with legal advice that is sensitive to the needs and wants of the owners, family, and key employees.
Sell or Purchase a Business
When the time comes to sell your business or to purchase a business, we'll be there to counsel you on how to best protect your interests. We produce or review the legal agreements that are necessary when a business changes hands.
