Make The Right Choices At The Beginning

Launching a business can be an overwhelming time. There are so many details to get right to ensure that your business can succeed. Choosing the right type of entity to form your business is one of the key elements that should never be overlooked.

Setting up your new business as a corporation, LLC, partnership or some other form can impact a wide range of issues throughout the life of your business such as:

  • Asset protection Depending on the type of organization you form your business as, you can protect your personal assets from business debt or lawsuits.
  • Taxation Different types of business organizations are taxed differently. It is important to understand the differences.
  • Control of the business Structuring partnerships and any other co-ownership situations appropriately is essential to maintaining control over the business.

We will develop all the documentation necessary for your organization, including:

  • Articles of incorporation
  • Operating agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Employment agreements and policies
