Advising New Business Owners on Choice of Entity

Our firm advises new and aspiring business owners on the legal, financial, and contractual issues related to starting a business. We advise clients during the process of choosing an entity such as LLC, corporation, S corporation, non-profit, partnership, and LLC. Determining the appropriate entity under which a business should operate will be based on a variety of factors. We ask clients questions such as the following:

  • Who are the owners?
  • Who will be the members and the managers?
  • Who will be the directors?
  • What are the business's liability limits?
  • Where will you be doing business?
  • With whom will you be doing business?

Depending on the entity chosen, we help clients with other legal aspects of business formation including:

  • Federal Employer Identification Numbers
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Operating agreements
  • By-laws
  • Employment agreements
  • Employee manuals
  • Severance agreements
