Business Formation and Entity Selection

Business Formation and Entity Selection

Choosing the right business entity is a crucial step in the formation process of any business. It has a significant impact on the tax status, liability, and sustainability of the business. However, it can be confusing to determine which entity will best meet your immediate and long-term needs. Our firm can help you navigate the complexities of entity selection and formation, and provide clarity to ensure that you make an informed decision.

Our attorneys assist with the formation and organization of business entities, such as Sole Proprietors, S Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs), Limited Partnerships (LPs) and general partnerships.

Stockholder and Operating Agreements

Stockholder and Operating Agreements

When two or more individuals and/or entities are in business together, it is often prudent that they have an agreement that governs their relationship. Our firm has the knowledge and experience to prepare stockholder agreements for corporations, and operating agreements for limited liability companies. Restrictions on matters such as voting rights, the transferability of shares or membership units, and the number of votes necessary to transfer all or substantially all of the business entities assets, are just a few of the typical matters addressed in these types of agreements.

Commercial Transactions

Navigating Business Purchases and Sales

Deciding to buy or sell a business is a crucial step that involves several areas of legal complexity. There are many considerations for both purchasers and sellers of businesses. Should the sale include the stock or membership units of the business entity itself, or just its assets? Will either party have to pay bulk sales tax in connection with the transaction? Is there goodwill being transferred along with a trade name and, if so, how is that valued? Will the seller be restricted from competing with the business and/or from soliciting its employees? Our team of lawyers can help individuals, corporations, and businesses navigate this process by conducting a thorough review of contracts, negotiating carefully, and maintaining exceptional quality control. We specialize in preventing disputes and facilitating profitable transactions, with a focus on identifying potential issues, ensuring diligence throughout the process, and delivering efficient and valuable services to our clients.

Record Keeping Compliance

Record Keeping Compliance

The firm assists business entities with the maintenance of corporate records. Maintaining proper corporate records can provide protection for shareholders and members, memorialize important transactions, and authorize corporate action. Such work may include, but is not limited to, the preparation of resolutions necessary for a business to purchase or sell real property, updating stock transfer ledgers to reflect transfers of equity ownership in the business, or ratifying past actions taken by the business’ officers or members.
